    D-Link? DCS-942L Enhanced Wireless-N Day/Night Home Network Camera 4.1 5 16 16
    Harder to set-up than advertised I consider myself a bit if a techie....but this thing was bear to get going. Once I did get it going, I had to update the firmware and something happened to where now have to send it in for replacement. Ugh. Customer service was nice to deal with, though. Wish I knew why this product was so difficult to set-up, and why the heck new firmware is needed? Why design a product that has to keep coming back and making a wired connection to update....why do all software programs I use can just update wirelessly??? Pain in my rear end. November 22, 2014
    Good product for the price I have had this product for some time. It works as advertised. It can be difficult to set up under Windows 8 unless you have updated the firmware. Also, if you haven't set it up before, it can be easier to set up if you connect it directly to you PC before running the installation software. The instructions suggest a direct camera connection to the router but if your PC has a wireless connection then this may not work. That is why I suggest a direct connection to your PC. Once the camera is detected you then have the option of setting set up a wireless connection. Then, the camera then works flawlessly in the wireless mode. November 13, 2014
    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

    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.
