Fragile And Worthless

 

Taking it apart requires force, as the cage the cam is bolted in to is too small for it (looks like the engineer designing it didn't take into account the bulk of ribbon cables). Worse, the cage is made of the same flimsy plastic. Since it takes force...

Pan and tilt from a remote location is nice. Zooms in a long way

So-so low light performance, gets very grainy very quickly. Picture quality is acceptable at higher res settings, but can only to 10fps in the higher setting. No integrated screenshot or video capture ability. Requires Internet Explorer (What's the...

Dlink doesn't care

 

The product only has to be flashed with the original firmware once every week so far.

This camera is officially not supported for ANY BROWSER OTHER than IE.

Whoa is this product deceiving

 

IF D-LINK TECH SUPPORT WERE TOILET PAPER I'D RATHER USE SAND PAPER. Dlink Customer support is garbage we bought 6 of these cameras because they were priced well and included Auto Patrol and they have been nothing but a headache. Dealing with Tier 1&2...

Great optics, streaming recording to a NAS drive

Auto Patrol" does not actually auto patrol as you would think it makes one sweep of preset locations and stops, that was news to d-link. It is slow to respond to internet controls. After running a Autopan or Auto Patrol if your preset location or pan...

Dlink doesn't care

 

Do these people are trying to foist garbage onto the unwitting and unsuspecting public. Buy anything else.

The product only has to be flashed with the original firmware once every week so far. The tech support in the United States is very knowledgeable in comparison to the Tiers 1&2 housed offshore.

This camera is officially not supported for ANY BROWSER OTHER than IE. It does not work with Safari, Firefox, Opera or Netscape! According to Tier 3 tech support, one must use XP to use product. Occasionally, one must re-flash the firmware to bring the...

Pretty good buy

 

I'm replacing another brand that died and the manufacturer won't service.

Very compact. An outdoor cover is available. Can be mounted upside down or rightside up (picture can be inverted in the configuration). Setup is very easy with the included software, it finds the camera automatically. Also includes free IP surveillance...

MUST use Internet Expolorer (activeX plug-in only)! No support for Firefox, Opera or any other browsers!

Learning to hate Dlink

Does what it should with XP and IE. Lots of features and a fairly intuitive interface. Atrell in tech support for at least putting a good high school try.

Does not work with any other browser! Laggy when the settings are at medium and this on 10Mb/6Mb connection. Tech support is the worst ever.

Product Specifications

D-Link, a leading provider of wired and wireless IP cameras, introduces a new member of the Securicam Network family of Internet cameras: the DCS-6620 10x Optical Zoom Internet Camera. Featuring dual codec support, a 10x optical zoom lens, built-in microphone, and low-light sensitivity, the DCS-6620 is the ultimate remote monitoring solution for your security needs. The DCS-6620 Internet Camera features motorized pan, tilt, and optical/digital zoom, giving you greater remote viewing options. With a 10x optical zoom auto focus/auto iris lens, get greater clarity from your recordings than digital zoom alone. The 10x optical zoom lens delivers the level of detail necessary to identify people, license plate numbers, and other important details that are difficult to clearly view with digital zoom. With support for both Motion JPEG and MPEG-4 recording, the DCS-6620 is well suited for various recording scenarios. Motion JPEG delivers greater file integrity, making it ideal for critical monitoring situations. MPEG-4 video has smaller file sizes, making it more useful for extended recording periods or for use in low bandwidth networks. The DCS-6620 Internet Camera also utilizes D-Link's 2-Way Audio feature with its built-in microphone. Attach a speaker to the DCS-6620 and remotely communicate with subjects near the camera. An ideal location to use the 2-Way Audio feature includes point-of-entry areas, where you might want to identify a person before granting access. With the ability to record video in low light settings, the DCS-6620 can provide exceptional nighttime surveillance. Extreme low light sensitivity of .05 Lux enables recording in near total darkness. You can remotely monitor your camera using a web-based interface, or through D-Link's IP surveillance software. The web-based interface lets up to 10 simultaneous users to view the live feed from the camera. Using the feature-rich IP surveillance program, monitor and manage up to 16 cameras, set recording schedules, configure motion detection settings, and change settings on a single or multiple cameras. Enjoy greater peace of mind with high quality security solutions from the Securicam Network series of Internet Cameras. The DCS-6620 offers maximum versatility for all monitoring situations, making it the smart investment for your security needs.
