If you want to install and use the mydlink app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type mydlink in the search bar and press Search. Click on mydlink application icon. A window of mydlink on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

  • Disappointed

    By THEirishfarmer
    Bought this camera and downloaded the app hoping to be able to provide security for a church classroom. It requires us to be able to tape the class for an hour. After using a different company’s product, we discovered we could only watch and tape on a motion activated basis for 30 seconds. I bought this camera, and saw no where on the packaging that there was any such limit. I tested the camera and found that we could observe the class through the IPad without any time limitation. I also copied the image for about a minute or so, satisfied that it went longer than 30 seconds, I thought I had accomplished my purpose. This weekend we turned it on, and tried to tape, but found that there is a 3 minute timer on the length of the copy. Nowhere in any part of the app have I been able to find a warning about this arbitrary length of time. There is no setting which will allow me to change the length. THis is so frustrating, because now I cannot return the product as it has been too long. Emailed the company with NO response about a third party app or way to change the setting. I will happily change my rating on this if the company contacts me and fixes this problem. It’s too bad, because the image is of good quality, provided good sound, and functions well as a security cam.
  • Too slow to load live view

    By MDK1705
    Between the time it takes to sign in and the time it takes to load the live view, by the time it loads, whatever set off the motion alert is long gone. My Ring doorbell loads instantly on my same devices - no signing in required. Also, the motion fields are too broad. Either I can set them to pick up areas in view I’m not interested in, like the street, or I have to pick fewer fields resulting in not having my whole front porch covered. The fields in my old dlink cameras were much more flexible and specific to set because they were smaller and more of them. Would be nice if the new cameras could be set the same way.
  • Stopped sending me Notifications

    By hhrssguy
    I had a pair of DCS8000-LH. They stopped sending me motion notifications, spent a whole day trying to get them working. Never got it working again, garbage product and app. I work in IT and with automation systems, nothing should be this frustrating to work with. I can view the video feed anytime but when I exit it won’t send me notifications. I never turned them off because when I first got them they did notify me non-stop, but then it wanted me to do a firmware update and that’s when the notifications stopped. Can’t go back to the previous firmware either... GARBAGE. I am so unbelievably frustrated with this purchase especially after my house was just broken into and I feel like I need this at this point to feel safe.
  • Mydlink problems

    By WWNlima
    Took forever to ge t it to connect , spent a couple hours on phone with cable co, router co and then you guys and after half a day of calls it finally worked a t end of day. Had great cable signal at camera, they checked that when installing.?!Then it was offline for a day and a half last week, and had to reboot power to it to make it work again, so not happy. I am 1300 miles away usually and need to watch my basement for possible sump pump / water flooding problems , my Nest camera in Florida has been flawless for over 2 yrs. I’m cautiously going to keep it but if it fails again I will replace it with another Nest , sorry!

  • Icons & switches difficulty understanding

    By 777masterguy
    Difficult to understand the icons and switches.
  • 1/2 star

    By galleria photo studio
    unfortunately the sd recording system on this cameras never record. We have four of them connected and they never record, had different sd cards updated software and they never record. Save your money now on days you have so many options D-link use to be a great product Not any more it’s just a scam. Huge scam system never works. Don’t waste your time and money. Thic company makes your sd card Not to work so they can sell their cloud storage suscription. Just a Scam...
  • Dlink

    App features freezing and sometimes not coming on at all cool device tho
  • Okay.. not great.

    By IAmForeverX
    Bought it to keep an eye on a puppy my fiancée and I just bought. Trying to setup notifications are a pain at best, and then half the time it doesn’t even notify us in an appropriate time. Takes FOREVER to notify the phone of movement. Would be perfect if we had a faster response time instead of minutes later. At this moment in time, I can’t recommend this for a reliable form of video recording. The livestream is fine.. everything else.. not so much.
  • Terrible update - DONT BUY!

    By Irving_Klitgaard_Fam
    This is a terrible update compared with the previous d-link+ app. I have the same story as Draco1775 (see review from him); wanted to add a camera, got the dsc-8100 which (I didnt know) requires the new app. The old app was great, the new app is S.L.O.W., and you cannot have e.g. 4 cams in one single screen now (you need to scroll). Also, the live view isn’t live: you have to click every came to wake it up and start sendig live (which again is S.L.O.W). Probably a consequence of D-link migration to cloud based solution (get subscription fee, limit data load)
  • My dog watcher

    By zippyhas9.5lives
