Educate me. What is D Link and how does it work?
Jim, let me see if I can highlight how D-Link works:
1) mydlink.com; you can access your live camera feed from any Internet-connected computer or mobile device, tablet, or smartphone anytime, from the free mydlink.com web page or mobile app.
2) You are all set to see live video feeds or capture pictures.
3) Getting started: a)Connect the camera to your existing Wi-Fi network. b)Run the short installation wizard on your PC. c)Log into mydlink.com to see and hear what's going on in your home in real time - it's that simple!
4) Camera example: DCS-936L HD Wi-Fi Camera
The DCS-936L HD Wi-Fi Camera boasts a wide angle lens that easily captures your entire room, wall-to-wall, in high-quality 720p. Its rotatable head makes ceiling installations easy, and the built-in night vision, motion and sound detection, and a handy mobile app empower you with knowing exactly what is happening, day or night. (haven't found night vision to be good) Lots and lots of camera choices are available. I use older DCS-930L cameras available on eBay for some $30. We have five cameras in our summer home, all accessible all winter long and from anywhere, anytime.
Your existing home (or location) WiFi is the only recurring expense. D-Link sells a multitude of cameras to fit your application needs. Used cameras from eBay can be a bargain. Picture quality is amazing. Click on the photo below I just took of our driveway for an example of photo quality.
