Does anyone here have problem using Mydlink Lite on 3G/4G?
I can never seems to be able to connect to view my IP Cam when I'm on 3G/4G. Only via Wifi ok.

Login to the app is fine too.
WIFI as in internal wifi or external WIFI?

Actually, if there is no obstruction in mobile network, it does works like traditional ddns method. Wif the new traffic shaping / routing nowsaday, its no longer possible to have direct connection

Looking for a camera to monitor my pet when Im not at home. I want one that can be controlled remotely meaning Im able to adjust the camera angle/tilt/zoom using an app on my phone or computer when Im not at home.

Was looking at this DCS-5222L (B1 / B2) - mydlinkTM Cloud Wireless HD PTZ Infrared IP Camera

Any views/feedback on this product? Or any recommendations for better cameras?
Would like to seek for reviews on this product too. What is the difference between B1 and B2.

Bros... would like to seek advice.

Currently I have D-link DCS-5020L and 2 of my 932L broke down which I need to replace.

I have considering to get another 2 DCS-5020L for convenient sake as I am using D-Viewcam(DCS-100), the software from Dlink for local PC recording.

But from what I read, Vstarcam "T" series are recommended over Dlink, is it?

The question is, if I get Vstarcam, how to I do local PC recording as D-Viewcam is unable to detect 3rd party ipcam right?

Anyone tried Marix inhouse cam? http://marix.com.sg/?product=marix-9...1-diy-kit-dome

How is it?

Thanks for your advice in advance! =)

will not recommend vstarcam.... extremely buggy firmware and features although the specs looks good.

So should I stick to Dlink or should I get other models like Foscam F8910?

Thanks for your advice. =)

IMO, stick with D-Link will be a safer bet (since you already have experience with it)

FOSCAM is slightly harder to setup but once its up - its ok.

The camera sends the feed direct to your phone if there is no routing problem. I used to b able to view direct streaming without the relay mode. Since our telcos announced the traffic shaping of mobile network to optimise the user experience, I have not been able to get direct connection anymore. When relay mode kicks in, you see a timer kinda small icon on right side of the screen

T series quite OK now, best for own online test before you buy. They have demo online 24x7, test Liao, feel it then you decide.
