All features and easy setup for indoor surveillance. A wider viewing angle would have made it perfect.

Summary: Features like microSD card recording and remote viewing work great but the viewing angle could have been wider. Pros: Remote management and viewing Motion based recording ability. Good visibility even without ambient light. Android app. (only Lower res video, 320x240, available on mobile) Easy setup Cons: Narrow view angle. Only about 45x35 deg (HorizontalxVertical).
Excerpt: This was a very easy setup if you have a current router with WPS button. So if you want a do it yourself home security system without paying a monthly service go out and buy the D-Link DCS-942L Enhanced Wireless N Day/Night home Network Camera by D-Link. I setup up 2 cameras in lest then one hour, turn on the motion detector with video recording to MicroSD card.
Summary: Everything needed to quickly put this camera into operation was included. I set it on my kitchen window's pane to monitor my front door, so I can see who's knocking, before opening the door. Its has a surprisingly good night vision feature, which allows me to see who is at the door even at night. Integrating the device in to my home network was very, very easy.
Summary: Good and clear images. Not to much depth on the night infrared and for the price it at least chould move right and left even a little. Have problems with SD card. But overall it was a good investment and at least gives me peace of mind that I can have surveillance on my covered patio and porch.
Summary: I purchased the D-Link 942 for my home and I cannot say how pleased I am with its value and operation for an inexpensive camera (65$ on Amazon.com). This network camera is easy to install, if you have a wireless network, and only took a few minutes to get it up and running. There is an app for smart phones including Iphone, to allow you to access the camera, as well as the Dlink site where you can log in to live view, adjust settings, and look at recorded video.
Summary: It does exactly what I wanted it too. I wanted a camera that would email pictures and video when someone walked by in front of the camera. And I also wanted to be able to watch the live feed when away from home. It is important to get the email with the file rather then it storing it only locally. What happens if a burglar spots the camera and smashes it up or takes it with them.
The big boy camera, with SD card and PIR, but not awesome.

Summary: I bought several of the indoor D-Link cloud camera line to compare them, and this was the most feature-rich of the group that I looked into. This one has the PIR detection, IR lighting, and SD card recording. I set it up and tried most of the features, and compared to some of the Panasonic BL-Cxxx line that I also have. The Panasonics are much more configurable by the way in terms of setting up and verifying motion detection.
