Great for Surveilance,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: D-Link Dcs-932L Mydlink Wireless-N Network Cameras With Night Vision (Personal Computers)
I needed CCTV capability at home so we could monitor our property when abroad or away from the house. I checked around at length and read many reviews before buying this product which helped me decide which one to choose. So I in turn will leave my review after having these cameras in my house for a couple of months.
First of all these cameras are easy to install, either standing them on a shelf or mounting them on the provided brackets. After installation is complete they need to be connected to your home internet network, so they can be viewed from ANYWHERE that has an internet connection.
Connecting to the home internet network was a very easy task and took less than 5 minutes per camera. Once coonected you assign them a name such as: Garage, Hallway, Bedroom etc so when you log onto your account you can easily choose which camera you want to look through.
The online account you setup during the installation process can be viewed on a computer, or you can download a free app for your smart phone or tablet, iphone/ipad & android compatible. I have the app on my Samsung Galaxy S2, and my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, which means I can check out my cameras on all my devices.
So what can these cameras do? Well they are always on so you can log into your account and view a live video feed from any of your cameras Day or Night. The Night Vision mode is excellent, they work even in the pitch black. When in Night Vision mode the images are black and white, and when in Day Light mode the image is in colour. They also have a zoom function giving you the option to zoom in four or five times which can be done at the touch of a button while you are viewing through your cameras.
When you are going to be away from your house you just activate the motion sensor setting from your online account and if anybody enters your home you will be emailed 6 images, 3 frames from before the trigger and 3 from after giving you a good look at any possible intruders.
Because most people now have email on their phones and tablets, you will know instantaneously if anybody enters your property while you are away and if necessary you can then alert the police and have them arrested. You will also have evidence in the form of photographs because the cameras keep taking images every time they are triggered, so if somebody walks past your camera there will be a few dozen images to choose from and an excellent chance of catching a great mug-shot of their face.
There are many other settings such as sensitivity and motion trigger field, meaning you can set the camera to ignore certain areas of the room, say along the floor if you have a cat, so you won't be getting lots of false alarm emails.
For the price these cameras give excellent piece of mind and the individual selling prices work out cheaper if you buy a 3-set because of a bulk purchase discount. Trust me if you get one, you will eventually want more because they do the job very well, so that's why I got the 3-pack to start with.
Hope my review helps you in the decision making process!
