Conclusion

In the past I have found D-Link products to be good to great hardware diminished by their software. This case is no different. While the new app has a nice look and they have made some improvements; there are still a bunch of quirks that take away from the whole experience. I think they can make it better but they really do need to just focus on making one app work great rather than four apps that are mediocre.

This camera does have great capabilities, but in its current state I am not sure who it works for. Certainly super users will want to stay away due to lack of network recording, but I am not sure this is a good fit for those looking for a simple plug and play security solution either. If D-Link can fix the 15 second limitation then I can see a good use case for this camera.

Amazon.com presently lists the for $90 (US). At $90, the DCS-8300LH is reasonably priced for a 1080p camera that has good IR night vision, easy installation, remote access and cloud recording prices are very reasonable. Unfortunately at this point the 15 second limitation makes this a non-starter for most.

Pros:

Great image quality day or night
Reasonable cloud storage fees
Supports local recording on microSD

Cons:

No network recording or control
15 second clip limitation
Motion and sound detection works well but should be separate controls
Potential remote access issues
