The D-Link DCS-4618EK Vigilance 8 Megapixel H.265 Outdoor Dome Camera is a high definition professional surveillance solution suitable for small, medium, and large enterprises. The camera uses a high-sensitivity 1/3” megapixel progressive scan CMOS sensor with onboard WDR image enhancement to deliver truly superior quality video in all conditions. The all-in-one rugged design makes this camera extremely reliable and ideal for deployment in surveillance applications without the need for additional accessories.

  • 1/2.5” 8-megapixel progressive CMOS sensor captures high-quality footage
  • Resolution of up to 3840 x 2160 at 20 fps
  • Motorized varifocal lens allows easy remote adjustment for the perfect field of view
  • Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) image enhancement improves footage quality in high contrast lighting conditions
  • H.265 compression strikes the perfect balance between high image quality and bandwidth efficiency
  • Motion Detection not only saves bandwidth, it also makes reviewing footage much less burdensome
  • Block out or mask sensitive areas with the Privacy Mask
  • Built-in IR LED illuminator with a 30m range for surveillance even in the dead of night
  • Vandal-resistant design with an IK10 rating and IP66 for environment protection
  • Fast Ethernet port with PoE facilitates easy integration to your network
  • All aspects of your camera are easily managed with the free D-ViewCam™ Video Management Software

High-Quality Streaming & Recording

To maximize bandwidth efficiency and improve image quality, the DCS-4618EK provides real-time video compression using the H.265, H.264, and MJPEG codecs, and supports three separate profiles for simultaneous video streaming and recording. Video resolutions of up to 3840 x 2160 provide clear details, and noise reduction and support for simultaneous video streams improves quality in case forensic work is required for evidence. Additional support for motion detection, event management features, and ePTZ allow for implementation in a wide variety of surveillance 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.

Versatile Monitoring in All Environments

The DCS-4618EK features WDR image enhancement to deliver improved image quality in conditions 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-4618EK also has built-in IR LED illuminators with a 30-meter range, allowing the camera to keep watch even in complete darkness. IP66 certification ensures the camera is completely protected from dust and water in any environment and IK10 certified vandal-proof housing makes sure it keeps recording even when intruders attempt to sabotage the camera. These features work together to give you a reliable surveillance camera capable of monitoring indoors or outdoors 24/7.
