One thing I don't see with the 942L is an indicator when the motion detector is triggered, when viewing with the web interface. You can set sensitivity but can't tell if the camera has detected the motion. Other camera web interfaces and also 3rd party software have an alert notification. This is helpful to determine if you have the sensitivity adjusted where you want.

Another good idea  :)

It's a bit disconcerting having to check emails for motion detection trigger events. Your suggestion is much cleaner.

I used to have the 930L and when you set the snapshot to 6 images they all come in one email which is nice. It appears that on the 942L I have now it comes as 6 different emails which can get really annoying. If that could be added it would be much appreciated

I would like a way to turn motion detection on/off easily. Perhaps by using my smart phone. This way I can set it to on when I am leaving my house.

This functionality is presently available. Log into mydlink and navigate to: Camera Info (tab) > Advanced Settings. This path will provide access to the settings in your DCS-942L web interface.

Email Notification - Ability to send email notifications to at least 2 different email addresses (my wife and I).

Trigger by option in Snapshot and Video Clip - Option to be able to choose different start/end time ranges for different days (ie. Monday Time Start:1:00am End: 6:00am; Saturday Time Start:6:00am End: 6:00pm)

Thanks,

Hi JavaLawyer,
In one of the posts, you were looking for confirmation of the audio noise problem.  My 942L constantly transmits an annoying chirping type noise, unlike the noted compaint from the other poster of his only lasting the first five seconds.  This chirping type noise is so prevelant that I cannot hear any other sounds coming from the room the camera is in at all.

Did you try resetting your DCS-942L to the factory defaults to see if that remedy's the issue? From everything I've seen on these boards, there doesn't seem to be a widespread noise issue (unlike the DCS-930L and DCS-932L which have intermittent background clicking noises).
