    • Description

      The D-link DCS-6511 is a high-definition fixed dome day and night network camera, ideal for small-to-medium business applications and remote monitoring over the Internet. The camera employs a superior CMOS sensor with low lux sensitivity to deliver a truly superior image quality under various lighting conditions. The DCS-6511 is equipped with an analog video BNC video connector and DI/DO (digital input/digital output) connectors for external alarms and sensors.
    • High Quality Video Feeds

      To maximize bandwidth efficiency and improve image quality, the DCS-6511 provides real-time video compression using the H.264, MPEG-4, and MJPEG codecs. Furthermore, the DCS-6511 supports 3 separate profiles for simultaneous video streaming and is capable of recording in MJPEG, MPEG-4 and H.264 compression at 1.3 megapixel resolution. This kind of versatility enables a wide variety of security applications. Examples include keeping an eye on your home during lunch through a 3GPP enabled mobile device or fine-tuning your security system in real-time over the local network. You may also remotely manage a directory of recorded video files on a network attached storage (NAS) device or SD card.

    • Flexible Installation

      Power over Ethernet (PoE) connectivity allows for discreet installation in virtually any indoor or outdoor location. The camera’s built-in 802.3af compliant PoE module eases the installation process by reducing the need to drill holes and lay additional cabling to a power source. In addition, the 10/100Base-TX Ethernet port seamlessly connects to your local network or to the Internet via a gateway router. This camera can be accessed, controlled, and viewed from any appropriately configured device connected to your local area or wide area network.

    • IR Cut Filter and IR LEDs for Continuous Monitoring

      The removable IR cut filter provides the DCS-6511 with the capability to record clear video footage in low light environments. The fully automated system is able to determine current lighting conditions and automatically activates the 12 built in IR LEDs to capture objects within 20 meters in complete darkness.

    • ePTZ for Surveying Regions of Interest

      The ePtZ feature allows users to select a target region for close-up viewing simply by clicking on the video feed displayed within their browser. ePTZ makes use of the camera’s megapixel resolution to survey a large area effortlessly. Since ePTZ requires no moving parts, there is no need to worry about the mechanical lifecycle of the camera.
