The D-Link DCS-6517 5 Megapixel Varifocal Outdoor Dome Network Camera is a high definition professional surveillance and security solution suitable for businesses and enterprises. The camera uses a 5 megapixel progressive scan CMOS sensor to deliver truly superior quality video in all conditions.

  • Built for the outdoors
  • Continuous monitoring
  • Flexible connectivity

  • Built for the outdoors
    Specially built for outdoor use, the DCS-6517L has an IP66 weatherproof housing that protects it from dirt and rain. The durable housing of the DCS-6517 has also been designed to meet IK10 vandal proof specifications, meaning that it can be deployed into areas that require the peace of mind that the DCS-6517 can provide.
  • Continuous monitoring
    In low-light situations, the IR cut filter automatically slides out of the way to use all available light. The DCS-6517 also has built-in IR LED illuminators with a 20 meter range, allowing the camera to keep watch even in complete darkness. These features work together to give you a reliable surveillance camera capable of monitoring an area 24 hours a day. To maximize bandwidth efficiency and improve image quality, the DCS-6517 provides real-time video compression using the H.264, and MJPEG codecs, and supports three separate profiles for simultaneous video streaming and recording. This versatility enables a wide variety of security applications, such as monitoring public areas to detect incidents and to coordinate responses, enforcing access control to restricted areas, deterring criminal activity, or monitoring inventory.
  • Flexible connectivity
    The DCS-6517 has a built-in 802.3af compliant PoE module that simplifies installation by providing power and networking connectivity with a single cable, reducing the need to drill holes or lay additional cabling. In addition, the included digital input and output connector enables connections to external devices such as IR sensors, switches and alarm relays.
