D-Link DCS-2330L Outdoor HD Wireless Camera Review

dlinkcameraIf you have been following this site for any length of time, you will know that I have reviewed a number of Wireless cameras. I also have a wired system in my studio, and home that I use for surveillance on top of commercial security products.

One area that I have not explored is setting up cameras to monitor some external locations not covered by my wired system.  One area I have wanted to monitored is my storage shed. So when D-Link sent me there new DCS-2330L Outdoor HD Wireless Network camera to review I thought this would be the best place to place it.

The quick install guide got me up and running in about 10 minutes, with it connected to my wireless network. After I configured it I moved the camera to my shed and mounted it with the included mounting base, plugged it in and went to look at the picture quality.

This is where I ran into a little trouble. The D-Link website requires that you enable Java on their camera viewing pages in order to view the camera. This in my opinion is a major detractor to viewing the camera on their website but after authorizing Java for their site only I was able to view it. The D-Link mobile app was a lot easier for local viewing but a bit more complicated for viewing when I am remote and I am sure will be where I view the camera the most.

Like many wireless cameras you can set it up to record to the cloud upon movement, it will also email you an activity alert. It has a Day and Night Mode, is outdoor ready with a weather proof case.  One thing that is unique to this camera is you can record video to a micro-sd card.  With 720p resolution you are going to be able to get high resolution recordings of any nefarious activity.

If you have a D-Link Cloud Router configuration of the camera can be done with a push of the button which ties into their full eco-system of products and services.

If you looking for a nice outdoor HD Wireless camera this unit priced at $179.99 is a nice choice and will serve your remote needs well.
