D-Link DCS-942L :: Can't Run 942L Without Power Cord

Aug 5, 2012

I just got the camera today, looks good, works good, at least so far.. BUT I was SURE this camera had a battery and charge function!? What's the point of having this camera if I can't place it say inside my car or in the garage (where it needs to be hidden, alas I can't use any cords!)?

D-Link DCS-942L :: 942L - Gaps In Continuous Recording

Mar 10, 2012

I have my 942L set up for continuous recording. When I look at the files, the camera will record between 20 and 55 seconds, end that file and start another. The next file then starts between a few seconds and as much as 40 seconds later leaving a gap in the video recoding. The file sizes are all different and the amount of record time is different for each file.

Also, about 80% of the time, the time increments a few seconds on a playback and then stops updating even though the video is longer.

D-Link DCS-942L :: Does Not Work With MAC

Nov 10, 2012

The company has a glitch that they are not sure if they will fix so you can't record with mac.  I am unable to return my cameras to staples and Im out the money for the memory cards I opened.  It says you can record with MAC clearly on the box!!!!  Bad business practice for STAPLES and DLINK.

D-Link DCS-942L :: How To Manage Cam Using A Web Browser

Apr 13, 2012

As DCS-942L IP cam is compatible with "NVSCGI APIs" (search this string on a search engine and you will find some useful PDF docs), many features of this IP Cam may be enabled or disabled using any web browsers, for example we can manage the motion detect.

D-link Dcs-942l :: Keeps Going Offline Wifi?

Apr 19, 2012

I have 3 DCS cameras on my network all setup WiFi

2 are DCS-932L and 1 DCS-942L

The DCS942 (which is right near but facing the other direction) is about 2 meters away from one of the 932's but the 942 keeps going offline - it comes back on and off probably 4-5 time during a 24hr period.

This is most frustrating - it would look like Wifi signal strength could be the issue but the other 932 right near it doesn't have this issue?

D-Link DCS-942L :: Unable To Reset It

Jun 24, 2012

I initially set it up for static IP, which was a mistake for reasons I probably don't need to go into here.  Having recognized my mistake, I've been trying to hard reset it so I can convince it to acquire its IP address by DHCP, but each time I reset it and return to the "First, select your camera" screen in the setup wizard, I'm faced with a single choice: the device as I first set it up for static IP.  I don't seem to be able to convince it to give up that erroneous static IP address.I have read the FAQ section on hard reset.  I've held down the reset button for a lot longer than 6 seconds while the cam was connected to power and ethernet, and I've watched it go through the sequence of flashing blue reset and WPS lights until it settles down, but this doesn't change the situation, evidently.

D-Link DCS-942L :: NTP Not Functioning Properly

Jan 27, 2013

My Dlink DCS-942Ls had been updated to the latest firmware both 1.12.1608WW and 1.12.1628EU. (I grouped them into two firmware devices). They are all H/W version A1, agent version 2.0.15-b11.  If I setup time to automatic time configuration and sync with NTP servers ( all from drop down list and Thailand NTP server time1.nimt.or.th) , they did not work and I must set time manually every times I power off and on these IP cameras.  I knew that this issues has been raised for long times and still exist in the current firmware.Simple way to eliminate this problem is specifying NTP server into IP number.  ping your national NTP server URL and then get the IP address , e.g. time1.nimt.or.th has IP , or ntp1.dlink.com has IP  I have tested many ways and the results can be comfirmed that  URL NTP letter cannot sync time but IP number can do.   I also has a DAP-1360 Repeater mode and test with its "System Check" ping test,  the result are success either URL NTP server name and IP number.  NTP protocol is different to ping test. I'm not sure that which parties (ISP, DNS, Router, IP camera device)  should fix this error.    I decided to specify NTP server with IP number to all network devices from D-Link.  Minor risk may occur if a national NTP server change its IP number.

D-link Dcs-942l :: Do Not Upgrade Firmware Over Wifi?

Jun 25, 2012

Well this one should be in the "Firmware DOs and DONTs" post. I updated to FW 1.11 over wifi and apparently this will corrupt the camera so it needs serviving. Would have been nice to know that before I did it. Since the upgrade from 1.02 1030 I get this note:The throughput of the SD Card on your camera is not currently enough for recording. We suggest you to reformat the SD Card or replace it with a higher class one.

D-Link DCS-942L :: Cannot Update Motion Detection

Nov 2, 2012

I have been having no luck with DLink support getting an answer. I have the DCS-942L which allows me to set the date/time zone but when I try to add motion detection settings the page always times out during the save. I tried using CaT-5 CABLE instead of wifi for settings (camera on same router and desktop pc) but after the "saving" message appears, it eventually times out and I have to click the Back arrow to return only to find none of my settings saved. I also want to note that each time I log in I see a broken certificate error message. Using Win8 with IE10. Also tried on Win7 with IE9 and XP Pro with IE8.

D-Link DCS-942L :: Video Clip Notification (MP4 Instead Of AVI)?

Feb 11, 2012

Can the DCS-942L be configured to send the "Video Clip Notification" email video attachments as MP4 as opposed to AVI?  The iPhone can not play AVI files, so I'm forced to use the snapshot feature which misses a lot of the motion.  I have a Linksys WVC80N that allows me to send video email attachments in MP4 format that works great, but I would like to have this ability on my two D-link DCS-942L cameras as well.  If there is no way to send MP4 video email attachments... is this something that could be added as part of a firmware upgrade?

D-Link DCS-942L :: Not Working Over Wireless With SD Card

Dec 14, 2012

My DCS-942 is doing everything quite well, except when an SD card is inserted.  When connected to the network via ethernet, everything works well.  I can set detection zones with snapshot or video modes and it does what I want it to do, however, as soon as I remove the ethernet cable and wish to use the camera over wireless, the unit fails to work at all (red light illuminated).  If I then remove the SD card, it will work over wireless again with all the capability except for SD oriented operations.  I have performed several hard resets and formatted the card with no success.

D-Link DCS-942L :: Emails Blocked As SPAM?

D-Link DCS-942L :: Continuous Recording To External PC?

Feb 28, 2013

I would like to record the camera feed (per 5 min. files) on my server (ubuntu or windows)

I Installed a FTP server and tried the option "always" in the "video clip" section, but unfortunately, it seem not possible to record more than 10 seconds files every 60 seconds  . I think that this is a bug ?

Do you know, if we have a possibility to record the camera feed, I would like to manage it from the webcam or with an external program running as a service.

Just set up 2 dcs-942 cams, and both were working fine. Now for some reason, the ir on one is not working, or very dim.  This is in complete darkness, and its not seeing anything beyond 3ft.  I've tried unplugging it, but didn't work. I haven't tried a hard reset yet, but may have to.  Btw, no difference even if I force dark mode.

D-Link DCS-942L :: Can't Access IP Address For Livestream

Ok so for many days I did manage to access the IP address for a livestream, and to go into the advanced setup of the camera. Suddenly, it stops working. i can't access it. What happened?

I enter the IP address into the url field and hit enter. Several seconds pass by.. Then I get this message: "The connection has timed out." and nothing happens.

This is making me upset cause I need to get this camera working NOW! I want to delete everything on the SD car, and also lower the sensor so that it wont record everything including NON movements like it does now.
