How to reset the D-Link DCS-800L camera to factory default settings?


  1. If you forget your camera’s password, you can perform a reset to return all settings to the factory default.
  2. If you can’t log in to the device.
  3. If you change your network environment.
  4. If you want to assign the device to another mydlink account.
  5. If you encounter a problem while registering the device to the mydlink service.
  6. If the setup wizard can’t find the camera.

Note: After a factory reset you will need to re-register the camera with mydlink Cloud Services.

Warning: Do not turn off your mydlink Baby Camera during this process. It is recommended that this process is only carried out while the camera is connected directly to a power outlet using the supplied power adapter.

Step 1: With the unit on, use a paper clip to press the reset button inside the hole on the base on the unit labeled RST.

Step 2: Hold the button down for 10 seconds and release.

Note: Do not unplug the power adapter during this procedure.

Step 3: The unit will then reboot. Once the power light stops blinking, the unit is reset and all settings are restored to their defaults.
