D-Link's DCS-950 10/100 Fast Ethernet Network Camera allows you to take snapshots or record video directly to a hard drive at a price that's right.

D-Link is pleased to introduce the D-Link SECURICAM Network™ DCS-950 Internet Network Camera, a full-featured surveillance system that connects to an Ethernet broadband network to provide remote high-quality audio and video. You can access and control the DCS-950 Internet Network Camera using Internet Explorer version 6. As you watch and listen remotely to video and sound obtained by the DCS-950, you can take snapshots or record directly from the Web browser to a local hard drive without installing any software, making it ideal for capturing any moment no matter where you are.

The DCS-950 also works great with D-Link's MediaLounge™ family of networking products, including the award-winning DSM-320 Wireless Media Player. After setting up the DCS-950 to record to your PC's hard drive or a network-attached storage, captured video can be wirelessly streamed to the DSM-320 and displayed on your TV screen! Now you can see what took place throughout the rest of your home - all from the comfort of your living room.

With 0.5 lux light sensitivity, the DCS-950 is capable of capturing video in rooms with minimal lighting, making it ideal for use at night time.

The DCS-950 Internet Network Camera adheres to the Universal Plug & Play (UPnP™) specification which allows computers running Windows® XP/Me to recognize the DCS-950 and automatically add it to the network. The DCS-950 can be accessed and viewed from “My Network Places” as a device on the network.

Simple installation procedures, along with the built-in Web-based interface offer easy integration into your network environment. Powerful surveillance software is included to enhance the monitoring and management for multiple cameras, allowing you to archive video straight to the hard drive, playback video, monitor up to four cameras on a single screen, and set up motion detection to trigger video/audio recording and send e-mail alerts. The DCS-950 Internet Network Camera is a cost-effective and versatile security solution for your home or business.
