The D-Link DCS-6517 5 Megapixel H.265 Outdoor Dome Network Camera is a high definition professional surveillance and security solution suitable for small, medium, and large enterprises. The camera features a progressive scan CMOS sensor and support for H.265 to deliver truly superior quality video in all conditions. Power over Ethernet (PoE) and a rugged, weatherproof design makes this camera extremely reliable and ideal for deployment in any surveillance application.

Built for the Outdoors

Specifically designed for outdoor environments, the DCS-6517 is IP67 certified – one of the toughest Ingress Protection (IP) ratings that is given to products tested to protect against dust and long-term water immersion. A sunshield provides added protection against the elements while blocking out glare, and various mounting options gives installers maximum flexibility for any location. Most importantly, support for Power over Ethernet (PoE) provides power and network connectivity via a single cable – making the DCS-6517 a truly versatile solution that can be used in a wide range of applications.

Advanced Monitoring with H.265 Support

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 smart IR LED illuminators with a 20-meter range, allowing the camera to keep watch even in complete darkness. To maximize bandwidth efficiency and improve image quality, the DCS-6517 provides real-time video compression using the H.265 and MJPEG codecs. The H.265 codec, or High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), uses the latest compression algorithms to save even more space than H.264, for better visual quality and recording performance. These features work together to give you a reliable surveillance camera capable of monitoring an area 24 hours a day – no matter the environment or the application.
