2 MP Full HD Cube Wireless IP Camera


24/7 Camera Surveillance
The DCS-2230 is a versatile surveillance solution that is perfect for monitoring low-light environments in your home or small office. It combines a high-resolution 2 Megapixel sensor with a built-in IR LED to help you keep watch over areas in complete darkness. The DCS-2230 also includes a built-in mechanical IR filter, making it suitable for both day and night applications. Additionally, the DCS-2230 is a complete system with a built-in CPU and web server that transmits high quality video images for security and surveillance. Simple installation and an intuitive web-based interface offer easy integration with your wired or wireless network. The DCS-2230 also comes with remote monitoring and motion detection features for a complete and cost-effective home security solution.

Wireless N Connectivity
The DCS-2230 includes 802.11n wireless for fast and easy integration into your existing network environment. Wireless N allows you to stream high-quality video to remote sites and mobile devices. A Site Survey feature also allows you to view and connect to nearby wireless networks with ease. The DCS-2230 also includes a standard Ethernet port for connections to traditional wired networks.

Flexible Connectivity
The DCS-2230 includes input and output ports allowing connectivity to external devices such as IR sensors, switches, and alarm relays.

Advanced Motion Detection
The DCS-2230 has integrated video motion detection as well as a passive infrared sensor (PIR) for advanced motion detection capabilities. Motion-triggered images or video can be automatically uploaded, emailed or stored using the integrated microSD card slot.

Two-Way Audio
The DCS-2230 includes a built-in microphone and speaker, making it useful for remote two-way communication.

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 2 megapixel resolution to survey a large area effortlessly. Since ePTZ requires no moving parts, there is no need to worry about the camera having mechanical failures.

D-ViewCam™ for Management
The included D-ViewCam™ IP camera surveillance software is a comprehensive surveillance system designed to centrally manage multiple IP cameras. Supporting up to 32 IP cameras, D-ViewCam™ is compatible with all current D-Link IP cameras and offers digital monitoring and recording capabilities of video, audio, and events for various security applications. The D-ViewCam™ software is included free of charge with the DCS-2230.

Easy to Configure and Operate
This network camera supports the Universal Plug-n-Play feature, which allows computers running on Windows XP/Vista/7 to automatically recognize the camera and add it to the network.

Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF)
ONVIF is an open industry forum for the development of a global standard for the interface of IP-based physical security products. ONVIF identifies a standard for how IP products within video surveillance and other physical security areas can communicate with each other ensuring interoperability between products regardless of brand. The DCS-2230 is ONVIF-compliant and therefore compatible with many third party Video Management Software (VMS) solutions.

Business Benefits

"When I was first starting the research, I wasn’t hopeful that I was going to find a solution that would meet our needs and actually fit our tight budget. But the D-Link solution did and it provides the performance we were looking for."
