D-Link Wi-Fi Camera with Remote Viewing (DCS-931L) Review

Updated: 30 April, 2020 seen 95

Back in August 2019, I bought (ordered from Amazon) D-Link Wi-Fi Camera with Remote Viewing (DCS-931L) as a baby/nanny cam.

It turned out a great toy to play with for a couple of days, but there hasn't been a real use, so far. 

On the other hand for the last couple of months this camera has been used just as a boogeyman for nannies, its placed on the most visible part in the living room, but is unplugged and not filming. This tactic works out really great.

The Bottom Line

The best for this Wi-Fi camera probably is just the price - it cost under $40, and you get what you paid, and even bit more. A nice toy to play with, but wouldn't recommend for some serious surveillance.
