Pan & Tilt Wi-Fi Day/Night Camera
Where to buy


The DCS-5000L Pan & Tilt Wi-Fi Day/Night Camera provides a range of features to help you effectively monitor large areas of your home or small office at all hours of the day. The pan/tilt function allows the camera to patrol a wide area, while the built-in IR LEDs provide around the clock surveillance regardless of the lighting conditions. Wireless connectivity means there is no need for additional cabling, allowing for flexible placement and hassle-free installation.

Peace of Mind With 24/7 Monitoring of Any Environment
The DCS-5000L is a standalone surveillance camera that requires no special hardware or software, and can run independently even without a PC. Send e-mail notifications with snapshots or video clips whenever motion is detected using just the DCS-5000L and an Internet connection. You can customize areas of the video image to monitor for motion, allowing you to effectively monitor areas such as entryways or restricted-traffic areas. Night time monitoring is also possible thanks to built-in infrared LEDs which allow for night time viewing of up to 26 feet (8 meters), enabling round-the-clock monitoring of your home or small office.

Instant Access Anywhere with mydlink Cloud Service
Enhanced with mydlink™ support, the DCS-5000L makes it easier and more convenient for you to keep an eye on your family, home or office, no matter where you are. You can view your camera’s live video through the mydlink website and through a free downloadable mydlink app for your iOS or Android mobile device. With the mydlink app, you can quickly and easily view your camera feed from anywhere using a Wi-Fi or 3G/4G connection.

Sharp Image Monitoring from Different Angles
By providing you with sharp, responsive pan/tilt movement and digital zoom, the Pan & Tilt Wi-Fi Day/Night Camera gives you full control over your surveillance. You can quickly scan a wide area from a variety of angles, and 4x digital zoom lets you zoom in on specific areas for more detail. The DCS-5000L can also be set to move to specific preset positions, allowing the camera to focus on particular areas of interest within the surveillance area.

Increased Range with Wireless N Technology
Place the DCS-5000L anywhere in your home or small office thanks to the latest Wireless N technology, which increases range, speed, and reliability of wireless networks. Install the DCS-5000L anywhere within range of your existing wireless network, without the need for additional network cabling. Wireless networking also gives you the flexibility to move the camera from place to place should your surveillance requirements change.
