Making the Transition to IP Surveillance

Video surveillance is shifting from low tech analog security surveillance systems to high tech IP systems that can leverage the same business network used for eMail, network storage and enterprise software applications. The IP Surveillance advantages driving the conversion to IP-based /CCTV installations are many. One of these advantages is the ROI achievable through centralizing the management of the surveillance system and using standard networking protocols for more dynamic surveillance.


Advantages of IP Surveillance over Analog/CCTV

In general, IP cameras can capture higher quality images for better identification of print and facial features

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

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

D-Link IP Surveillance Cameras Capture Incredible Detail

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.

Camera Options & Applications

  • Bullet Cameras

BulletBullet 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.

  • Cube Cameras

CubeDesigned for use in small businesses and residential applications, D-Link cube cameras are an attractive entry-level surveillance camera solution. Offering HD resolution, the ability to see in complete darkness and two-way audio with a built-in microphone and speaker, D-Link professional cube cameras are high end cameras in small easy-to-install packages.

  • Dome Cameras

DomeD-Link dome cameras offer an aesthetic design wherein the camera, lens and cabling are hidden and protected inside of a domed enclosure. Available in both indoor and outdoor models, D-Link dome cameras offer an attractive protected camera for indoor applications and a rugged vandal and weather resistant design for outdoor applications.

Network Switches Ease Integration

D-Link offers field-proven, secure network switches that are durable, reliable, easy to configure and provide the advanced performance to keep your IP Surveillance system up and running. Our intelligent switches are pre-programmed to recognize IP cameras and help automate the installation process. In addition, D-Link’s Web Smart Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches include a self-configuring Auto Surveillance VLAN feature that separates, secures, and prioritizes IP video traffic.


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.

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.
