D-Link DCS-932L Network Camera Review


DCS-932LWireless N Network Camera
The Wireless N Day/Night Network Camera (DCS-932L) offers 802.11n Wi-Fi connectivity, Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS) for simple three step installation, Motion JPEG, and 20 frames per second (fps) streaming, as well as new infrared illumination technology for night viewing. Featuring simple installation and an intuitive web-based interface, consumers can easily integrate the DCS-932L into an existing network and view the streaming video from a PC, notebook, Apple iPhone®, Apple iPad®, or Androidphone or tablet.

The DCS-932L Wireless N Network Camera with an MSRP of $149.99 is now available throughout D-Link’s vast network of retail and e-tail outlets in North America, and at the company’s online store, http://www.dlinkshop.com.

Here are some helpful ideas from D-Link for giving peace of mind to mothers of all kinds:
1.    For the New Mom: All new moms wish they could spend every waking hour with their bundle of joy, and often get a little anxious when other household responsibilities get in the way. The D-Link camera (DCS-932L) features new infrared illumination technology, enabling moms to keep an eye on sleeping babies, day or night, without the worry of waking them up!

2.    For the Working Mom: Working moms are the ultimate multi-taskers, so give her something that streamlines her routine and does it efficiently. The DCS-932L network camera provides a quick and easy, three-step set up process that will have mom up and monitoring her loved ones in no time! And with the free mydlink app (available from the Apple App Store or the Android Market Place), she can watch real-time video on her Apple iPhone®, Apple iPad® or Android phone or tablet while she’s travelling for business or on her lunch hour.

3.    For the “Fur” Mom: Mothers to fur children – cats, dogs, bunnies, etc. – deserve appreciation too! Whether she’s the mother of your fur children, fur grandchildren or furry step-siblings, give her a way to keep an eye on those little ones. Unlike traditional, USB-connected webcams, the mydlink-enabled DCS-932L camera features built-in CPUs and web servers for high-quality live streaming sent directly to the network without a PC. With monitoring made so easy, shouldn’t everyone have a puppy cam?

4.
    For the Mom Taking Care of Parents: For the daughter who is caring for her aging parents or in-laws, a network camera can offer a much-needed extra pair of eyes. Monitoring a homebound senior is even easier with the ability to set trigger motion detection and recording schedules.

My Take:
I really love this camera. It's is just totally awesome! To start out it was very simple and easy to set-up.  From the box, I just plugged in the power cord, then pressed a button on the back of the camera and the button on my wireless router and they completely synced all on their own.  It does include a cable in-case your router doesn't have the sync button, or it doesn't work right off.  Next I put the included CD in my computer and followed the set-up instructions.  Within minutes I was able to see what the camera was pointed at in the other room.  It was really neat to see especially with the night vision capabilities.  I showed the image to my son on my computer and he actually thought it was a photo, it wasn't until his dad went into the other room and started being silly in-front of it that he realized it was live! LOL I love how small it is too, I could easily hid this in any room for easy surveillance.  It will come in handy as I begin to allow my son to stay home alone since he is getting older. Definitely a great item to have especially if you have a babysitter, or someone you don't quite trust in your house.  I sure wish i had this back when my son had one of his buddies over that ruined some things here, then denied it. It even records sound so you can hear what is being said in the room. The included software even has the option to set up multiple cameras in your home and organize them all in one place.
