When I say IP cameras, most people think that those are cameras that are installed on ceilings and in high places. Although that may be true, there are also IP cameras that can be placed on a desk or carefully concealed in a place where no one can see it.
Today, I am going to talk about the D-Link DCS-942L IP Camera. This is an IP camera that can be put on a desk and is easily configured through its companion software. But before I talk about the software, I will first talk about the main features of this IP camera.
Some people veer away from installing IP cameras themselves because they think that the installation process is cumbersome and too technical but that is not the case with this IP camera.
The D-Link DCS-942L IP Camera is very easy to install. In fact, all you really need to do is place it anywhere you like (except the ceiling and in high places), connect your wired Ethernet cable, set it up using its companion software, and you’re good to go!
If you do not want to have to do anything with regards to the Ethernet cable, there is good news for you! The D-Link DCS-942L IP Camera can actually be connected wirelessly. Just press the WiFi icon on the IP camera and it will detect your router’s connection, after which, it will enter your WiFi without any problems!
Now for the actual prowess of the IP camera. The D-Link DCS-942L IP Camera has both IR LEDs and an IR-cut removable filter so that it can still get crisp and clear footage even in low-light environments.
This is especially useful since most people who are going to do something bad are almost always going to do it in the dark (like stealing your stuff or destroying your property).
The D-Link DCS-942L IP Camera also makes use of its IR devices really well. During the day, the IR filter will make sure that there is just enough light for the images to become visible; i.e. not overpowering the image with too much light.
At night, the IR filter moves out of the way and the IR LEDs will spring into action. All of this is automatic and you do not need to tinker with anything!
To fully utilize the D-Link DCS-942L IP Camera, you need to register the product on the mydlink website. After registering the product and if it is connected to the internet, the IP camera will then automatically configure itself.
You can also download the companion software from the website as well. The software is easy to use at it has intuitive menus and everything you need to tweak is there.
The good thing about this IP camera is that it also comes with a free 50GB of cloud storage space so you can opt the IP camera to send footage directly to the cloud storage service. That is an added benefit for people who purchase D-Link’s IP cameras.
The D-Link DCS-942L IP Camera is a solid IP camera solution for people who want to feel secure in their homes. With no technical installation required, the D-Link DCS-942L IP Camera is one of the most user-friendly and robust IP cameras on the market today.
