Today we are taking a quick look at the recently released D-Link Full HD 180-Degree Wi-Fi camera, model DCS-2630L. This camera is part of a new family of cameras which claim to have the widest angle lens available on a consumer fixed camera; a full 180 degree field of view (FOV). The DCS-2630L to be reviewed offers 1080P resolution, while the DCS-960L offers 720P. Both have sound and motion detection, microSD card slots, and automatic day/night viewing; the DCS-2630L adds better resolution and two-way audio.

The D-Link DCS-2630L claims a tremendous 180 degree field of view with full HD video. This camera also has built in IR LEDs to illuminate up to 16' and utilizes passive infrared (PIR) sensors to more accurately detect motion. You can also listen in and interact with others using the two way audio. You can also set the device to provide email or push notifications for sound or motion events. These events can also be stored locally on the microSD card.
