It's D-as-in-dog Link ("Dlink"), a manufacturer of networking
equipment and networked security systems.
I don't have any personal experience with them, but it looks like you
can get a wireless camera unit for under $50 (forgive the
horrifically long URL)
Based on a quick perusal of those results, this one (again, forgive
the long URL)
seems to have the basic features you're hunting at a reasonable
cost. While obviously a security camera, it appears to be about the
size of a baseball/tennis-ball sitting on a similarly-sized base,
somewhat like a medium-sized snow-globe.
I can't vouch for the accessibility of it (it claims to have a web
interface but might require sighted help when targeting the door), but
that's certainly an option to explore.
