Expert Review

10 December 2012
  • Summary: Cheaper and infinitely more accessible, home network cameras are quickly solidifying themselves are better alternatives for home or office surveillance. They’re not all perfect devices though; we still remember the hassle of installing some, or submitting helplessly to their storage-consuming ways. In comes D-Link DCS-942L, ready to change things around. We’re certainly glad they did. The DCS-942L doesn’t look too different from the crop.
  • Pros: Easy to set up, microSD support, Night vision works well, Good video quality
  • Cons: Some software oddities
