D-Link makes some good-looking technology. Better known for its routers, this networking equipment manufacturer also makes a fairly extensive line of sleek, modern-looking home security cameras. While we techies always get excited about good visual design, it can never trump functionality, so we dug in and extensively researched D-Link’s home security camera collection to find out whether or not the cameras really perform. We’ve whittled the catalogue down to a more manageable collection of D-Link’s better cameras and divided our selection into four separate categories: Indoor Wi-Fi, IFTTT-capable, pan and tilt, and outdoor.
Overall, the customer consensus with D-Link is that the cameras themselves have fantastic hardware, but its software, app user interface, and customer service leave a lot to be desired. The security of D-Link’s products was also called into question recently, and while nothing’s been resolved, it’s concerning nonetheless.
