the dcs-942l Enhanced Wireless n ir network camera is a unique and versatile surveillance solution for your home or small office. Unlike a traditional
webcam, the dcs-942l is a complete system with a built-in cPU and web server that transmits high-quality video for security and surveillance use. the
dcs-942l is simple to install and uses an intuitive web-based interface for easy configuration. it connects to your network quickly through either a wired
Ethernet or 802.11n wireless connection. the dcs-942l also comes with remote monitoring and motion-detection features for a complete and cost-effective
home security solution.

the Enhanced Wireless n ir network camera has built-in infrared (ir) lEds and an ir-cut removable filter that allows it to be used in a variety of lighting
situations. during the day, the ir-cut filter provides high-quality images and video. at night, the ir-cut filter automatically moves out of the way and the ir lEds
turn on to allow the camera to record in low-light or no-light environments. the dcs-942l also includes a Passive infrared (Pir) motion-detection sensor, which
can detect motion at all times of the day.
WirElEss n connEctiVitY
the dcs-942l can connect to your network through 802.11n wireless, allowing the camera to be placed anywhere without installing additional network cabling.
a site survey feature also allows you to view and connect to nearby wireless networks with ease, and the WPs button lets you create a secure connection to
your router by simply pressing a button. the dcs-942l also includes a standard Ethernet port for connecting to traditional wired networks.

mydlink™ website. the dcs-942l will then automatically configure itself and connect to the mydlink™ service, which gives you convenient access to your
video feeds through the mydlink website. You can even view your camera feeds with the mydlink ios and android apps so you can stay in touch on the go.
