Great picture, atrocious audio

Amazon Customer, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: The picture is great, set up was easy but the audio is HORRIBLE. Constant clicking static in a silent room, not super fun to listen to. Should have paid more attention to other reviewers who pointed this out..

Good price, great camera

  • Summary: Good price, great camera, but the software is very buggy. It will not work 100% of the time. I would not recommend this as a baby monitor.

Not as good as the 934L's and that's for sure

Robert Pearson Jr, Amazon
25 March 2016
  • Summary: Not as good as the 934L's and that's for sure. The focus becomes blurry as you move away from the center of the image. So if you want to really see anything in detail (as much as you can from a normal VGA camera) you've got to make sure the camera is focused dead center on it -- otherwise it'll be...

Good camera for the price includes most basic features you will need for a good home monitoring device

G. F Robison, Amazon
18 May 2015
  • Summary: I wanted a camera to keep tabs on my kids as they come home from school etc. when I'm not home. I researched about a dozen different models, their features and finally decided to try the D-Link DCS-942L, I specifically wanted the motion detection/night vision/local SD recording/remote viewing...

Good cam. Integration needs work

Redneck, Staples
18 December 2014
  • Summary: This seems like a good cam from a trusted name. I like the D-Link hardware and cloud features. However, I purchased it for my Staples Connect system and the integration and the information could be better. When I first added it to the system, all I could do is view the camera.

Good Value, Average Camera

Lance W., Newegg
12 August 2014
  • Summary: I had very high hopes for this little camera, but I found the bundled software to be extremely lacking. I ended up pairing the camera with iSpy (great open-source, free software that's fully compatible with this camera, and thousands of others) and found that the sensor on this camera is extremely...
  • Pros: Small profile, built in Wireless N, 30 fps recording, decent software bundle, somewhat easy setup (when it works), option to wire the camera with ethernet, very low power consumption, wall mounting kit included, pretty long power cable, very low price (at least he sale price), average night visio...
  • Cons: Included software doesn't do enough, IR vision is weak (at best), field of view is extremely narrow, sensor is extremely susceptible to light changes (triggers motion with most software), camera occasionally shuts itself down or stops transmitting, IR is useless behind glass, built in microphone ...

OK Camera for an OK Price

Bernardo R., Newegg
13 July 2014
  • Summary: Overall, this isn’t the best camera for keeping your house secure...I would say the best option this can be used for is a nanny cam. I am disappointed with the online interface of managing the camera and its advanced features.
  • Pros: Well, before I got this camera to review, I actually owned the previous generation (932-L). This product has great small packaging with not a lot of waste (so very eco-friendly). In the box you get the camera, a power cord, an ethernet cord and the instructions as well as some product info pamphl...
  • Cons: The biggest let down on this device is doing the advanced features of the device. After initial setup, there is nothing to tell you how to setup the advanced features. The way I knew how to get to them was from using its older brother. First you must determine the IP address of the device from yo...
