1) why?
2) intro a variant of it?
3) if not 2), and I obtain one from Canada, can I still add to my US MyDlink.com account so as to have all cams in one place for viewing?

thanks, there's the 2330 made for outdoor use but IMO its inferior to the 2670. The 2670 has the features all of us need. I don't understand why they don't want to capture market share for outdoor solutions because clearly there is a gap in what is available and features/price point.

let us know.

if its not available and i source one from Canada, can I use mydlink along with my us cams?

I agree. I wish there were more "consumer" outdoor cameras. I know the majority of "business" cameras are for outdoor but much more money. Gotta pay for the weatherproofing and better quality.  I know D-Link is working on getting a replacement for the 2330L in the US. I am not sure when though.

I am still waiting to hear back regarding buying cameras from Canada can be used in the US with US mydlink accounts.

thanks again, look forward to hearing what they tell you. cheers.

update: just recalled something. in the past, ppl from abroad have posted here about buying a cam in the us and using it abroad. the answer was the cam can be used abroad but would call into the US (or N. American) based cloud. Indeed, I've bought one for a collegue from abroad and that is how it worked. They log into the US Dlink site. The question is can a canadian cam co exist with us cams on a single us dlink account. or is the us account really a n. american account? if so, then maybe the question is moot? anyway, look forward to hear what they say.

Unfortunately using products that are not sold in the US is not supported.

I bought several 2210ls from eBay,  seller was in Florida.  The packaging was Portuguese.  Could've been Brazil.  It worked with my us dlink account.
I'm not sure if dlink sells non American packaging in usa officially or how this person sourced them.

Post by: BAMoh on August 08, 2017, 08:42:05 PM
thanks ryatt. so just to make sure, you have a mix of portugese and us cams all under a single us mydlink account? i think that is what you are saying.
Title: Re: 2670L not available in US? Canada only?
Post by: RYAT3 on August 08, 2017, 09:01:18 PM

Yes, that's kind of what I'm saying.

I'm also saying I'm not sure if these 2210L's were meant for Brazil or Portugal, or meant to be sold in Florida.

But they are all registered with my US mydlink account with all my USA bought cams.  The F/W is in USA.  I don't remember how I upgraded the f/w or if I did.  I'll try to find a box.

I'm from Canada and all our cameras get setup at https://us.mydlink.com.  AFAIK US and Canada users use the same site.  Just ordered a 2670l from Best Buy locally.

I tried ordering one but they wont ship to the US. DLINK is also very lame in ceding market share to everyone. Hate to mix platforms but probably just go with Arlo Pro as the next best thing for outdoor IMO.

A number of retailers just listed it here in Canada.  Not sure why no US, they announced it at CES 2017 and that's sure not in Canada?

Lets us know how the night vision works when you get it. There's no way I'm going with the current US outdoor options offered by DLINK unless they cut the price severely. The 2330 has terrible night vision and narrow viewing angles and is their best offering in the US. It was a great cam 5 years ago but for DLINK to market this BS in 2017 is offensive to the savvy customer IMO. Gonna try the Arlo Pro as I don't feel like paying $50 for shipping from Canada and the sale is also over.

I purchased my 2630L from US and am using it in Europe. Here is the process I had to go through to get it registered:
