D-Link - Safeguard Your Business. A unique, complete IP Surveillance solution - Comms Infozone - main image

IP Surveillance

Investing in a scalable end-to-end solution that integrates with your existing IP network just makes great business sense

Knowing that high quality, reliable security cameras keep a vigilant eye on your facility even when you are not there can provide you with tremendous peace of mind.

Video surveillance has shifted from low tech analogue security surveillance systems to high tech IP systems that can leverage the same business network used for email, network storage and enterprise software applications. IP Surveillance is also advantageous over analogue surveillance as there is a greater ROI (return on investment) achieved by centralising the management of the surveillance system and using standard networking protocols for more dynamic surveillance.

Leveraging its 30-year history as a networking expert, D-Link is at the forefront of the technology evolution that is changing the face of physical security. D-Link delivers a full line of IP cameras, network switches, video storage devices, and Video Management Software (VMS) technologies that help organisations deploy IP surveillance systems with the flexibility, scalability, performance, and compatibility expected from a best-of-breed security vendor.

If you still haven’t upgraded your analogue CCTV system to an IP Surveillance system, here are a few reasons to do so:

Camera Megapixel Resolution:

In general, IP cameras can capture higher quality images for better identification of print and facial features. Every D-Link system starts with reliable, full-featured cameras with onboard video processing, motion and tamper detection, high definition and multi-megapixel resolution, ICR (Integrated Camera Recorder) for recording in any light, and H.264/ MPEG-4/MJPEG compression. And because D-Link products are built to industry-standard (ONVIF compliant), you’ll enjoy seamless interoperability with a broad range of VMS platforms.

Day/Night modes

IP Cameras are available with infrared lighting, very low light sensitivity or lenses with an automatic iris enabling detailed image capture even in darkened corridors, outside buildings, and parking areas.

Flexible Installation:

Power over Ethernet (PoE) IP Cameras can be installed with a single combined power and network cable connected to a PoE switch; allowing camera installation far away from standard power outlets.

Centralised Management:

Management of all components of an IP Surveillance system can be centralised in a single location for multi-site installations.


Security cameras that safeguard businesses

D-Link are unique in providing a complete IP Surveillance solution, including a complete range of cameras, network video recorders, and network infrastructure – for round-the-clock security and monitoring, whether for a small shop or large industrial corporations with multiple sites.

Superior optics

D-Link lenses use high-quality glass for superior images. Details like number plates can be captured in Full HD clarity even at maximum zoom. D-Link security cameras are designed to make business operations easier, give you peace of mind, and keep you in the know with instant alerts for emergencies.

Bullet cameras are a permanently sealed weatherproof enclosure that can be used indoors or outdoors without the need for additional hardware (a wall mount is included).
Although the lens cannot be replaced, bullet cameras are often used because of their all-in-one design and attractive pricing. D-Link bullet cameras are available in HD resolution, offer day/night functionality and integrated infrared illumination.

Dome Cameras

The Switches behind the surveillance

Switches with Surveillance GUI. D-Link’s ONVIF compliant switches include a redesigned surveillance interface making surveillance features more accessible than ever before. The choice between Standard and Surveillance modes can be made during switch set up.

Switches are at the heart of the modern network and, as a market leader, D-Link has an extensive range of products to offer. Everything from plug and play entry-level products through Web-managed Smart switches to fully-managed enterprise solutions. All built to deliver the ideal platform on which to build a robust and scalable IP Surveillance system.

PoE (Power over Ethernet) support simplifies D-Link camera installation, while breakthrough Auto Surveillance VLAN technology automatically prioritises surveillance traffic above ordinary data traffic.

Close integration with D-Link wireless access points and our unified Wired/Wireless Access Switching system also help locate cameras where cabling cannot reach, while still delivering the same robust and secure connectivity as on wired LANs.

Naturally, D-Link has network management and security products too, plus network storage solutions to provide a total solution from the core of your network to its edge, for IP Surveillance and a lot more besides.
