Powerful Digital Surveillance
The D-Link DCS-6815/6817/6818 is a high-performance high speed dome network camera, ideal for business IP surveillance applications. The DCS-6815/6817/6818 employs Sony ¼” EX-View CCD technology to deliver exceptional picture quality. High-performance SoC (system-on-chip) technology provides real-time video compression in MPEG-4 and Motion JPEG formats.
Proportional Pan, Tilt , and Zoom Speeds
Adjusting the camera is painless since the pan and tilt speed is proportional to the optical zoom ratio of the camera. When the camera zooms in, the panning speed is automatically slowed to improve camera tracking and controllability. PTZ presets allow the camera to monitor specified areas along predefined paths.
Weatherproof for Outdoor Use
The DCS-6815/6817/6818 camera apparatus is housed in a weatherproof enclosure (IP66 standard). A built-in heater and fan allows camera to operate in extreme environments at temperatures ranging from -40°C to 50°C.
Removable IR Cut Filter for Continuous Monitoring
The IR Cut Filter can be manually applied, or set to automatically adjust based on lighting conditions. This feature enables the camera to capture crisp color images during the daytime, and grayscale images in low-light.
Robust Management Software
D-ViewCam is a software program that allows you to view up to 32 cameras on a single computer screen from a central location. Motion detection and digital input devices trigger automated e-mail alerts that can instantly inform administrators of unusual activities.
Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) Applications
The Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) function of a camera provides clear images even under backlit conditions where the intensity of illumination can vary significantly. The DCS-6815/6817/6818 is recommended for extreme high-contrast environments. For example, when placed indoors, the DCS-6815/6817/6818 will adjust itself to the intense sunlight that may be streaming in through a nearby window. This makes it an ideal solution for security applications.
