The D-Link DCS-7517 5 Megapixel Day & Night Outdoor Network Camera is a high definition professional surveillance and security solution suitable for small, medium, and large enterprises. The camera uses a high resolution 1/3” 5 megapixel sensor with digital WDR image enhancement to deliver balanced video in varying lighting conditions. With 2560 x 1920 resolution, the DCS-7517 captures more detail in areas such as license plates, faces and currency. The rugged design makes this camera ideal for deployment in a wide variety of surveillance applications.

High-Quality Streaming & Recording

To maximize bandwidth efficiency and improve image quality, the DCS-7517 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.

Continuous Monitoring

The DCS-7517’s digital wide dynamic range (WDR) video 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-7517 also has built-in IR LED illuminators with a 90 foot 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.

Video Management Software

The DCS-7517 5 Megapixel Day & Night Outdoor Network Camera includes D-ViewCam, a complete surveillance software package that enables you to view, manage, and record from up to 32 cameras on a single computer in a central location. Recordings and e-mail alerts can be triggered through motion detection or events triggered by digital input devices, keeping administrators informed of any unusual activity.

Flexible Connectivity

The DCS-7517 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.

Five Year Warranty

D-Link stands behind the quality of the DCS-7517 with an included limited 5-year warranty. An optional extended warranty doubles the warranty to 10 years and adds next business day hardware replacement.*

*5-Year Warranty is for U.S. only
