Thoughts on the new DCS 8630
« on: July 03, 2020, 06:02:39 AM »

What are your thoughts on the new camera? Iím not overly impressed. The resolution is average and the motion recording isnít long enough. I donít know how to record continuously to sd card and I have found the new Dílink app not very easy to navigate.
On the plus side the spotlight is pretty cool.

Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately the DCS-8xxx series cameras you cannot continuous record to cloud or SD card. This camera as well as the 8526 do have ONVIF support so it will work with DVRs and DViewCam software which "should" allow for continuous recording.
