Yeah, sorry. Saw the deal at BB, then check at Amazon to compare but landed on .com by mistake. Edited to point to BB.

I'm seeing $139.99 on .ca. This is probably one of those "d'oh" moments where you don't realize which site you're on. I had those a few times.

Not bad. Can you get alerts and see live footage off the local network with these?

Keep a close eye on your home with the Mini HD Wi-Fi Camera 2-Pack from D-Link. Compact and discreet, each camera stands less than 10cm tall and records in HD with night vision. Receive alerts on your smartphone when a camera detects sound or motion within its range, and save live footage by pressing the record button on the mydlink app.

they don't, it only saves on your tablet/phones, not sure if you can use a PC to save your video.

This model doesn't record video, but it can capture a series of photo snapshots and email them to you or upload them to your FTP server.

I like that the app support two modes: local and remote. This means it bypasses the cloud service if your phone is on the same network as the camera. This is good because the camera is still usable even when the cloud service is down (or your Internet connection).

base on the review link, it supports video recording on your phone/tablet.
the red button should be record button

Just installed the cameras and was trying to figure out how to get it connect with the Google Assistant. I live chatted google and they told me to contact dlink directly. So i contacted dlink and the first level CSR told me she would have to investigate and get someone more senior to email me back about it compatibility.

Got an email this morning saying "The DCS-8000LH is compatible with Google assistant. This is a new feature that is being added soon. We do not have an ETA at this time, it will be soon."

Seriously? How can you advertise all over your website that this product is compatible with google assistant and even feature a video showing this when its not even ready? There is no ETA so I feel like this is false advertisement.

I also have some Amcrest cams in the house. I think they have the best quality/price in consumer-grade cameras. Reliable, great picture quality including night vision. Their downside is the app, which has an awful interface, but at least it has no connection failures and no nagging messages. I have a few Chinese made Foscam cams, which are low price but you get what you pay for: unreliable cloud service, crappy night vision, and the app is full of English errors and frequently nags you to buy their other offerings.
