Cons: This cam has been a problem from day one. The wireless range is very short, It needs frequent re-sets, once the firmware update was installed it worked briefly then could never be re installed. The setup software apparently cannot deal with the firmware upgrade. Updated software could never find it during the set up process. The older bundled software found it but would never accept a password so set up failed. A search for the problem shows it is occurring for others...
Excerpt: The concept of being able to view our summer home with this camera was great. I set it up and it worked great for several days, however once I was at my winter destination it stopped functioning and I have not been able to regain use of it unless, I assume someone physically attends to it. I would rate it as works but is unreliable.
Excerpt: The set-up was geared towards a PC. Found Mac download online. After set-up was complete, could not make camera wireless, as it was not compatible with our router. It was suggested we upgrade our router [$] but the one we have is working fine for all other devices. We decided not to spend [$] to make the camera wireless, and returned it.
Excerpt: I rarely rate hardware, but I felt others deserve to know the poor quality of the product and technical support. [First] SD card recording would not work. Tech support didn't know it had that feature so couldn't assist. They suggested calling the SD card manufactuer. I fixed by doing a hard reset on the device. [Secondly] The motion detector always shows motion even when there is no motion. This causes constant recording. Save yourself the frustration - DO NOT BUY.
Pros: Easy to view live via web
Cons: Motion detector failure, Noisey switching to IR, Poor Image, Poor tech support
Excerpt: As a current owner of several of the DCS-932L cameras I thought this newer version would be an improvement. However, the ball socket that allows for the tilting and pivot of the camera is made of pastic. Previous versions of the camera use metal. The downgrade to plastic prevents the camera from locking into a suitable position.
