Default Outdoor PoE Network Cams

I'm looking for outdoor PoE network cameras, what I've found so far are the D-Link offerings -- DCS 5610 and DCS 3410.

Any recommendation and advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

My System Specs


A few more things to consider with your model of camera.

- Night Vision
- Climate (the D-Link model is only rated for 0 degrees Celsius, while more commercial outdoor models can handle -20 degrees Celsius temperatures).
- Being able to record Audio
- Optical zoom features + pan/tilt

If you want to focus on a brand name that specializes in security hardware, try ACTi. They are well priced for what you get.

other brand names, Pelco, Axis Communications, Honeywell...

ACC :: Surveillance - About ACC has inventory, knowledge and good prices when I did some research on cameras a while back.

Thought this was a good choice VIVOTEK - 2MP Day & Night Fixed Network Camera IP7161

Heated outdoor enclosures a common for many cameras.
