WebCam for Wireless Networks

 

Perhaps you always wanted a Webcam but didn't want to dedicate a system to run it and certainly did not want to run the cable to where you needed it. Now D-Link solves those problems for you.

Very Good Camera

 

For the price, this camera is excellent. The image quality is superior to many security cameras I have seen. Setup is simple once you get the basics down.

Works great; bulky; no sound; requires add-on motion detector

 

I bought this wireless network webcam during a promotion in Dec 2003. The newer model (DCS-2100+) was just being released for $150 more. The DCS-1000W does not have sound monitoring, while the DCS-2100+ does. The 2100+ also has a built in motion ...
