The Enhanced Wireless N Day/Night Home Network Camera is a versatile monitoring solution for your home or small office. Unlike a traditional webcam, the camera transmits and records high quality video images and audio for 7 days continuously, even in complete darkness courtesy of the built-in Infrared LEDs. With mydlink included, this camera provides the simplest way to access and manage your camera, whether via your computer or app on your iPhone, or Android device.

mydlink: the easiest way to monitor your home

Connecting a camera on your network and accessing it has traditionally required complex configuration. mydlink makes it easy to access your camera from wherever you are, whenever it’s convenient for you. A step-by-step guide has your camera up and running in a matter of minutes. Then via a simple website you can set up a mydlink account allowing you to view and manage your camera from any Internet connected computer. If you have more than one camera, you can add it to your existing mydlink account and watch all your cameras from a single location.

Accessing your cameras on the go is easy too. Just download the free mydlink™ app for your iPhone or Android and you can quickly and easily view your camera feed from anywhere with a wireless or 3G connection. Thanks to this app, you can monitor on-the-go even if you don’t have access to a computer.

Night vision

The Enhanced Wireless N Day/Night Home Network Camera comes with built-in infrared LEDs that allow for monitoring even in complete darkness. The 5-metre illumination distance makes it suitable for monitoring whatever is important to you: whether it is your baby in the nursery or your office by night.

A complete monitoring system

This mydlink camera includes a MicroSD card slot and a pre-installed 16Gb MicroSD card to record audio and video directly onto the camera, without the need of a computer being switched on. You can setup the camera to record only when motion is detected, or continuously for up to 7 days via the camera’s intuitive web interface. Once 7 days have been exceeded and the MicroSD card is at capacity, older footage will be recorded over. The built-in PIR sensor can detect motion and trigger email alerts. All these features can be easily configured via the User Interface, which makes this camera a truly comprehensive home monitoring system.

You can also view up to 32 cameras from a Windows computer using the included free D-ViewCam software (DCS-100). D-ViewCam has a robust set of features including centralised alert management and video/audio recording.

Wireless N connectivity

The Enhanced Wireless N Day/Night Home Network Camera includes Wireless N technology for wider coverage across your home. Wireless N allows you to stream high-quality video to remote sites over the Internet. A Site Survey feature also allows you to view and connect to nearby wireless networks with ease. The DCS-942L also includes a standard Ethernet port for connections to traditional wired networks.
