How to record d-link DCS-930L image and sound

Hi All

Were having problems with abusive teenagers / young adults in our shop.

We have a D-Link - DCS-930L camera and i've set it up to test on the router (wired connection)

It appears this camera does not have software for recording long periods of footage onto the computer apart from a few email and ftp options which isn't enough as were looking at periods of 5 hours a night to catch the culprits so we can pass onto the police.

Can anyone advise a piece of software we can use which will capture the sound and video footage onto the hard drive or external drive?

Thank you in advance

Hi  auraorange
what kind of budget ?
the best advise is take a look at these then contact them for more indepth suggestions or talk to your local Tecky store where this type of hardware is sold.
Adding a DVR  Digital video recorder>can capture from the camera as well provide live feeds either on web or on a lan.
Something like this one, which supports USB flash backup and or movable hard discus writer.
USB drives may suit then.  storage capacity is nolonger limited with 1 terabyte sizes and up

Thank you auraorange.  Glad that did the trick for you.
Well done BillDL again your knowledge is excellent.
Thank you auraorange happy to see you found a prefect solution.
Thanks Merete.  I use the software to spy on the ladies' changeroom at work - just to make sure they aren't stealing ;-)  Only joking of course.  I've been toying with the idea of using it as part of a domestic security system in my house, but I began to realise that I'm too broke to have anything worth stealing, apart from the camera that would be recording the thieves.
ahahaha.  Your priceless BillDL may explain it :P
