D-Link delivers a robust and compact camera. It gives you the choice between local or low-cost cloud storage.

The D-Link DCS-2802KT-EU is certainly not a cheap offer, but the two battery-powered cameras have many advantages. They are solidly made and bring very good fastening material. Recordings succeed without delay time – very good! It is stored on an SD card (in the basic version) or on a connected USB hard drive. You don’t have to use the cloud service, but if you do, it’s affordable. Unfortunately, the modern designed app is not really intuitive to use, so familiarization is necessary.

  • hi everyone this is Adam from ads
  • productions and this is the review of
  • the d-link dcs 2x 0 to Katie
  • amna Wire free indoor or outdoor camera
  • kit let’s start by talking about what
  • you get in the box
  • first of all you get the hub otherwise
  • known as the dcs h1000 hub you get 2 dcs
  • 2 800 H cameras so basically two of the
  • cameras you get a power supply for the
  • hub you also get a power supply for the
  • camera you also get a magnetic wall
  • mount with screws you also get an actual
  • mount with screws you get an Ethernet
  • cable as well as one years premium cloud
  • recording subscription first of all when
  • you take the camera out of the box you
  • notice that the build quality of the hub
  • and the two waiti cameras is immediately
  • very very good it’s actually quite
  • surprising at first that the cameras
  • weigh as much as they do there is quite
  • a heavy weight to these cameras in
  • comparison to the hub so just bear that
  • in mind they’re going to be on the side
  • of your house anyway so this isn’t
  • really a problem just a first impression
  • kind of thing from a first impression
  • point of view this camera system is a
  • very elegant and sleek consisting of two
  • cameras and a hub the hub looks a little
  • bit different from a design perspective
  • to the cameras however it will fit in
  • most common house or home security
  • systems so there’s no problem there
  • thinking hmmm this might not fit with my
  • house and the wall structure it’s
  • low-profile enough to be hidden in plain
  • sight however looks good enough to
  • realize this is a 2020 era camera setup
  • the design the cameras kind of look a
  • little bit portal ish by that I mean the
  • games by valve on the bottom of each
  • camera you have a QR code which helps
  • with the setup as well as pairing in the
  • future there’s also a tripod style mount
  • which can be used to set the camera up
  • in a range of different places
  • alongside using it with the mount that’s
  • included in the box so you can literally
  • screw in the map of the bottom and mount
  • it wherever you’d like towards the rear
  • of the camera there is a section where
  • the magnetic join is this allows for
  • easy removal for charging the magnet
  • connection is also very very strong and
  • you don’t have to worry about it falling
  • in high winds I find this really cool
  • because you literally just have to mount
  • the magnetic side to the wall or
  • wherever you have the camera and then
  • you can take the camera connect it via
  • magnet to the wall and when you want to
  • charge it I’ll even reposition it you
  • just take it off the wall easily with
  • the magnet and place it back on the
  • magnet makes for a very very easy to
  • maintain an older style of camera on the
  • front you obviously have the camera
  • component as well and if you look
  • closely you can also see the infrared
  • component well in the front is literally
  • just the camera lens so there’s nothing
  • too spectacular on the side you have
  • these think buttons as well the sync
  • buttons are used to link the two cameras
  • or however many you have to the hub for
  • easy setup we’ll talk about that a bit
  • later on ok so let’s talk a little bit
  • about the hub the hub is the brains of
  • the operation it’s a small white device
  • that looks very similar to an internet
  • router or router it has three lights on
  • it we’ll talk a bit more about what it
  • has later on but essentially it’s
  • controlling the cameras that you choose
  • to set up is very low-profile it has a
  • power input it also has a network input
  • there’s also a USB port most likely used
  • for storage expansion if you look at the
  • front of the hub when fully plugged in
  • you’ll see three different lights one
  • for power one for network and one for
  • camera if you have a connected camera
  • with an internet connection you will see
  • all of these light up when facing this
  • hub on the right-hand side is actually
  • room for a micro SD card this is what
  • I’m personally using for storage however
  • it’s just one of the storage mechanisms
  • for this overall system there’s also a
  • sink and siren button at the very top of
  • the hub so how easy is this whole system
  • to
  • set up from start to finish to be honest
  • with you it’s very very straightforward
  • I can’t raise speak higher of the setup
  • process for these cameras literally all
  • you do is plug in the included hub to
  • power as well as the network wait for
  • the lights to come on and then what you
  • do after that is press the sync button
  • on each of the cameras that way you’ve
  • known that you’ve got the hub set up
  • with power and internet as well as
  • pressing the sync button to make sure
  • the cameras talk to the hub to say hey
  • I’m alive and I’m ready to be used once
  • you’ve done that the two cameras are
  • ready to be added all you do now is you
  • take out the mydlink app and you go to
  • add a device and hub and you scan the QR
  • code on the hub what it will then do is
  • talk you through a wizard of adding the
  • cameras and the device and eventually
  • all you’ve done then is you’ve added the
  • hub which technically is the hub as well
  • as the two cameras that you’ve synced to
  • it and you have the device enrolled and
  • the cameras ready to use I know I’ve
  • made it sound quite easy to use and it
  • really is that way you just scan the hub
  • after you sync the two cameras to it and
  • you have three devices enrolled with one
  • QR code scanned from within the app so
  • how about camera quality camera quality
  • is obviously very important when it
  • comes to a system however it’s not the
  • most important thing because as long as
  • you can see the intruders or what’s
  • picked up on the alerts it doesn’t
  • really matter how clear and concise the
  • picture is just that you can see it very
  • well well for this one the camera
  • quality is great on these cameras and
  • allows you to see the subjects walk in
  • and out of frame with little to no
  • issues there is never any quality
  • deterioration but again that depends on
  • what kind of connection that you have if
  • you’re gonna record video at night which
  • hopefully you are because that’s when
  • you want to see potentially the
  • neighbor’s cat potentially a burglar
  • come by just know that any video
  • recording that you do during the night
  • or the camera does automatically at
  • night shall I say it’s never gonna be as
  • good quality as it is during the day
  • because of the amount of light that is
  • allowed through that’s just par for the
  • course recording at night does work well
  • though because at night when the
  • recording
  • is in night mode you can see people come
  • to the door and you can clearly identify
  • the subjects with no issues whatsoever
  • so there’s no problems whatsoever
  • recording at night it’s just the camera
  • quality won’t be as good but you will
  • come to expect that if you have any
  • experience with cameras there is
  • actually audio when these cameras as
  • well the audio quality is mediocre but
  • you’re not really using it for
  • ultra-high definition audio as long as
  • you can hear what’s going on in the
  • camera and you can actually speak
  • through the camera that’s all that you
  • really need the audio quality is good
  • you can hear anything that’s going on
  • it’s not gonna blow your mind and to be
  • honest that’s the way it should be
  • because it doesn’t take up unnecessary
  • space obviously being one of the biggest
  • selling points of camera systems the
  • battery life is very very important with
  • this camera system you’re going to get
  • months out of these cameras yes
  • literally months now to be completely
  • transparent and honest with you I
  • haven’t actually had months to review
  • this camera system this is purely the
  • claims on the box however what I can say
  • is I’ve been using these cameras for a
  • few weeks now and I haven’t seen the
  • battery settings or status go down a bar
  • which indicates to me that these are
  • going to do exactly what they say on the
  • tin and lasts for a few months which is
  • excellent because the last thing you
  • want to do is go on holiday and have the
  • cameras die of battery that’s not really
  • good at all
  • you can charge these very simply with
  • the USB cable that’s included you can
  • also plug it into the wall charge it up
  • and there you go you’re good for a few
  • other months it’s quite impressive that
  • with this camera system you can go
  • months using them without having to
  • worry about battery upgrades or changing
  • the batteries whatsoever the battery
  • life is going to depend on how much you
  • use these and how sensitive the camera
  • picks up motion for example if your
  • camera picks up everything and you’ve
  • got the highest sensitivity on and you
  • have 10 20 30 video clips of constant
  • recordings your battery is going to go
  • down further than if you have the
  • sensitivity set up so that every once in
  • a while it goes off so once or twice a
  • week you get a motion sensor there’s
  • going to be a clear difference there so
  • just bear that in mind when it comes to
  • picking a
  • camera or a camera system for that
  • matter for your home security okay so
  • you have the hub and you also have the
  • two cameras how do you control these
  • cameras and the hub and maintain it and
  • see what’s going on what to do that you
  • need to download an application on your
  • smartphone called the my d-link app when
  • you’ve got that and you signed in this
  • is what you actually used to connect the
  • cameras so you’ll click on add device
  • and you’ll scan the QR code on the back
  • and then you’ll go through the wizard
  • you add it to the Wi-Fi and then you’ve
  • got the cameras enrolled in the app when
  • you’ve got the cameras enrolled in the
  • app you’ll find that it’s relatively
  • easy to use the application and the
  • cameras that you’ve enrolled as well as
  • the other devices my only minor
  • criticism about the app the mydlink app
  • is don’t get me wrong you can see the
  • devices as well as browse the media and
  • everything else that’s captured over the
  • cameras it’s just that sometimes it
  • feels quite clunky it freezes from time
  • to time the loading times are slightly
  • longer compared to how I’d prefer them
  • to be and you have the occasional app
  • crash which means stability could be
  • improved slightly the app is part of a
  • bigger picture though and almost
  • separate entirely to this camera system
  • by that I mean it’s designed for you to
  • have a range of different d-link devices
  • not necessarily this one the hub or the
  • cameras and have them all interconnected
  • for example you can use various
  • automation tools to have some trigger
  • set off some device which alerts your
  • camera would send you an email and then
  • activate some sort of alarm or smart
  • plug that you have these are also fully
  • compatible with if this their that it’s
  • nice to have the option to use these
  • cameras in a fully fledged smart home
  • system or just simply have the nice app
  • interface for your camera recordings and
  • to go back to see what happened one week
  • ago the choice is yours the main storage
  • component is dictated by the hub so from
  • within the app you can select the hub
  • and then ultimately choose what type of
  • storage you want to use for the
  • recordings you do actually get a free
  • year of cloud storage with this and
  • going back 14 days you can also use the
  • micro SD card which in this case I’ve
  • used or you can use hard drive
  • which is the hard drive that you plug in
  • via USB into the back of the hub overall
  • this camera is very very impressive as
  • well as the whole system in general to
  • be honest it allows you to take the
  • first steps into a smart security system
  • while allowing a very very easy setup as
  • well as making sure that you have good
  • quality video and easy to use app as
  • well as going back to see the camera
  • recordings what more could you want from
  • a security system I don’t have any major
  • flaws with the camera system apart from
  • the app and as apps go they’re going to
  • be updated regularly so there shouldn’t
  • be a problem going forward thank you
  • very much for watching this has been
  • Adam from ads productions with the
  • review of the d-link dcs to a02 Katie
  • Amna Wire free indoor or outdoor camera
  • kit thank you very much for watching
