Motion detection is accurate and reliable. You will receive an alert as soon as the camera detects some activity, and it will remain on until you turn it off. You can then watch a playback of the footage on your computer.

Night Vision

The DCS-6500LH night vision delivers decent quality images through its advanced infrared capabilities. We can view it at night or in poor lighting conditions up to five meters away.

Final Thoughts

D-Link’s DCS-6500LH Compact Full HD Pan & Tilt Wi-Fi Camera gives you 340° views as its Pan & Tilt technology allows you to see virtually every angle of any room. The camera also provides video that is clear enough to identify faces, license plates, or other important details. The camera is also equipped with infrared night vision, which means it will never stop working no matter what time of day or night it is. While this is not a top of the range security surveillance system, the DCS-6500LH is an excellent option for those who want a small, portable security system that can be used in multiple locations.
