At a media event held on September 15, 2016, D-Link released its new 180-Degree Wi-Fi camera, the DCS-2530L. At first glance it looks a lot like the DCS-2630L that we reviewed almost a year ago; that is until you get them side by side. They both have the same shape, but as you will see later the newer DCS-2530L is significantly smaller. In this review I will go over the basics of the camera and compare the features of this 2530L to the 2630L.
