It is said that a man’s home is his castle, and when we bring to mind castles in medieval times, then surely those are places which are definitely well fortified, so much so that they are able to ward off and even repel invaders from afar, but chances are, would fall under a prolonged siege as well. Well, the modern day ‘castle’, so to speak, would benefit from its fair share of security fixtures, where among them include the all important video camera. D-Link is no stranger when it comes to video recording devices and home networking stuff, which is why their latest affordable professional grade Vigilance IP surveillance series device has been revealed, calling it the Vigilance Full HD Outdoor Mini Dome Network Camera.
Also going by the model number DCS-4802E just in case you would like to reference it, the Vigilance DCS-4802E happens to be an Indoor/Outdoor Dome Camera that will be able to deliver Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, where it will come integrated with infrared illumination that allows one to see up to 60 feet in complete darkness, as well as boast of a rugged IP66 weatherproof housing which will ensure continuous performance even in extreme climates. Not only that, it will also come with a unique 3-axis design allowing for precise positioning of the lens, 3D noise filtering for enhanced low light performance and PoE (Power over Ethernet) for convenient single cable installation.
Apart from its rugged design, it is also endowed with a range of capabilities designed for deployment in small, medium, and large enterprises, including a 2 Megapixel Full HD 1080p resolution (1920 x 1080) camera that has wide dynamic range (WDR) video enhancement, infrared LED night vision with viewing up to 60 feet in complete darkness, a 2.8mm lens (that has 108° diagonal field of view), a 360-degree pan, 75° tilt and 360-degree rotation capability, video motion detection, IP66 weatherproof rating, and will retail for $185 a pop if you are interested in beefing up your home’s perimeters. The guard dog comes separately 🙂
