D-Link� DCS-942L Enhanced Wireless-N Day/Night Home Network Camera 4.1 5 14 14
Why haven't I thought it before? This is GREAT! The DCS-942L is perfect for my needs around my home. My mother is elderly and I monitor her when I'm out of the house on errands. The night vision comes in very handy in situations and the microSD card is great for recording and/or storing video information. I even purchased a second one for the house. June 3, 2014
Great product This product does what it is expected to do. Picture quality and range, night vision etc is all good. My only difficulty is in setting the motion detection which I struggle with. March 21, 2014
Good value for the price It has good features like recording photos and video, microphone, viewing from computer, tablet, and smart phone. It would be good if it could save videos to an external hard drive or the cloud. It disconnects from time to time. It requires patience. March 17, 2014
Mr I was looking for a camera that had internal memory. I really did want to clog the Wi-Fi network with a lot of traffic but I still wanted to have the ability to capture video in addition to snapshots. This camera does exactly what I wanted to do. It is very cost-effective. I have seen a number of negative reviews on this camera. In my opinion they are totally bogus. I found the camera very easy to set up. Admittedly requires a little bit of technical knowledge but no more so than I would expect given the capabilities. Basically all you have to know is how the connected device to a wireless network and if you want email alerts you have to put in the same settings as you do for a program like Outlook. I was very happy with the quality of the images, the available options, the quality of the android and iOS applications I use both. For this camera I do recommend spending the 99 cents and getting the enhanced version of the application. That version lets you review the contents of the memory card online which is exactly what I want to be able to do. I strongly recommend this camera and I am seriously considering the possibility of purchasing the HD version for another part of my security system. The only feature I would like to add is the ability to download videos from the card within my D-Link. This capability does exist from within the web accessible admin page. March 16, 2014

Answer:�
Thank you for your feedback. The DCS-942L is compatible with Macs, however, the D-ViewCam software included is not Mac-compatible. Also the DCs-942L utilizes the following type of power source Input: 100-249 V AC, 50/60Hz, Output: 5 V DC, 1.2A, External AC-to-DC switching power adapter, 2W Max Power Consumption, so there is no battery life expectancy associated with the DCS-942L. Thank you for choosing D-Link.
