HD Outdoor Dome Network Camera with Color Night Vision


The D-Link DCS-6315 HD Outdoor Dome Network Camera with Color Night Vision is a high definition professional surveillance solution suitable for small, medium, and large enterprises. The camera uses a high-sensitivity 1 Megapixel CMOS sensor with onboard WDR image enhancement to deliver quality video in all conditions. The all-in-one rugged design makes this camera extremely reliable and ideal for deployment in a variety of outdoor and indoor surveillance applications.

High-Quality Color Night Vision
Incorporating a highly sensitive CMOS sensor, the DCS-6315 provides outstanding performance in low light-conditions, resulting in more vibrant color detail. The noise reduction feature has been enhanced to provide a level of detail in the image quality that is unmatched by other offerings in the market.

To maximize bandwidth efficiency and improve image quality, the DCS-6315 provides real-time video compression using the H.264, MPEG‑4, 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.

Continuous Monitoring
The DCS-6315's WDR image enhancement gives you improved image quality in environments with uneven or difficult lighting, so you can identify subjects that are backlit or in brightly lit areas. In low-light situations, the IR cut filter automatically slides out of the way to use all available light. The DCS-6315 also has built-in IR LED illuminators with a 45 feet 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.

Flexible Connectivity
The DCS-6315 includes an input port for connectivity to external devices such as IR sensors, switches, and alarm relays. The DCS-6315 also incorporates Power over Ethernet (PoE), allowing it to be easily installed in a variety of locations without the need for supplemental power cabling.

D-ViewCam for Management
The included D-Link D-ViewCam™ video management software allows users to manage up to 32 network cameras, set e-mail alert notifications, create recording schedules, and use motion detection to record important events directly to a hard drive. D-ViewCam™ also allows users to upload a floor plan to create a realistic layout of the premises where the cameras are located, further simplifying the management process.

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."
