D-Link DCS-2630L camera watches a whole room


D-Link's latest security provides a 180 degree view.

The D-Link DCS-2630L 802.11ac Wi-Fi security camera has the widest angle lens available on a consumer fixed camera, according to the company.

The features of the $499.95 camera include 1080p HD video quality, two-way audio, sound and motion detection, microSD card slot for local recording, and automatic day/night operation.

The 180 degree view provides wall-to-wall surveillance, making it perfect for large rooms and areas with multiple entry points, the company said.

A de-warping feature reduces the "fish eye" effect associated with wide angle lenses.

Audio and motion detection generates alerts when activity is observed. This feature can be used in conjunction with the local recording capability (requires microSD/SDXC card, not included). Continuous and scheduled recording is also supported.

Night vision support uses infrared light to illuminate objects up to five metres away even in darkness.

The DCS-2630L can be used in conjunction with D-Link's mydlink DNR-202L camera recorder, or with the free mydlink Lite app for iOS and Android devices and Windows Phones.

"For some years now, D-Link has been focusing on easy to use and highly effective DIY security solutions. Our new 180-degree 'Wide-Eye' camera provides customers with the ability to see an entire room from a single camera, all in glorious full HD," said D-Link ANZ managing director Graeme Reardon.

"The fact that a single camera can now provide full wall-to-wall coverage is a huge benefit to consumers and small businesses as many other competing solutions may require several cameras to see all the details within a room.

"This means D-Link customers can worry less about what they might be missing out on seeing, as well as avoiding the inherent complexities of a multiple camera solution."

Security requirements such as confidentiality, integrity and authentication have become mandatory in most industries.

Data encryption methods previously used only by military and intelligence services have become common practice in all data transfer networks across all platforms, in all industries where information is sensitive and vital (financial and government institutions, critical infrastructure, data centres, and service providers).
