Sorry, this product is no longer available, please contact us for a replacement.


The DCS-6818 High Speed 36x High Speed Dome Network Camera is a professional indoor/outdoor IP surveillance solution which connects to your network to provide high-quality live video over the Internet. The inconspicuous dome enclosure can be mounted in a variety of positions based on your needs.

Powerful Digital Surveillance

The D-Link DCS-6818 is a high-performance high speed dome network camera, ideal for business IP surveillance applications. The DCS-6818 employs Sony ¼” EX-View CCD technology to deliver exceptional picture quality. High-performance technology provides real-time video compression in H.264/MPEG-4 and MJPEG formats.

Proportional Pan, Tilt, and Zoom Speeds

Adjusting the camera is painless since the pan and tilt speed is proportional to the optical zoom ratio of the camera. When the camera zooms in, the panning speed is automatically slowed to improve camera tracking and controllability. PTZ presets allow the camera to monitor specified areas along predefined paths.

Weatherproof for Outdoor Use

The DCS-6818 camera apparatus is housed in a weatherproof enclosure (IP66 standard). A built-in heater and fan allows camera to operate in extreme environments at temperatures ranging from -40°C to 50°C.

Mechanical IR Cut Filter for Day and Night Monitoring

The IR Cut Filter can be manually applied, or set to automatically adjust based on lighting conditions. This feature enables the camera to capture crisp color images during the daytime, and grayscale images in low-light.

Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) Applications

The Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) function of a camera provides clear images even under backlit conditions where the intensity of illumination can vary significantly. The DCS-6818 is recommended for extreme high-contrast environments.

Robust Management Software

D-ViewCam is a software program that allows you to view up to 32 cameras on a single computer screen from a central location. Motion detection and digital input devices trigger automated e-mail alerts that can instantly inform administrators of unusual activities.

Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF)

ONVIF is an open industry forum for the development of a global standard for the interface of IP based physical security products. ONVIF identifies a standard for how IP products within video surveillance and other physical security areas can communicate with each other ensuring interoperability between products regardless of brand. The DCS-6818 is ONVIF compliant and therefore compatible with many third party Video Management Software (VMS) solutions.
