D-Link DCS-825L Wi-Fi Baby Monitor Camera Review

Final Thoughts




The DCS-825L is great solution for parents wanting more flexibility in their baby monitoring application. With the 825L, we push past the days of audio-only streaming where parents had to clip the sometimes large receiver from traditional baby monitors to their belt. Instead, we now have audio and video along with event monitoring pushing straight to your smartphone or tablet, a device that's much more sleek and sensible to carry with you.


The build quality of the DCS-825L is rather good; the plastics feel secure and durable with no small parts that could fall off and result in an incident with your child. Performance was, as you can see, quite good. The image clarity was more than acceptable at 720p, and the night vision actually worked quite well.


Another feature I really liked was how fast the event notifications came through. After setting up the camera, I made an effort to see how fast the app responded to motion and sound. Much to my surprise, the alerts came through almost instantly.


One thing to note: make sure to also switch your smartphone or tablet back to that network after you connect the camera to your existing wireless network.


MSRP of the D-Link 825L is set at $179.99 with a one-year warranty. Current market pricing can be found below.
