D-Link DCS-6111 User Manual

Section 1 - Product Overview
• Powerful Surveillance - The DCS-6111 uses the WDR VGA Progressive CMOS technology that delivers
exceptional picture quality. The Wide Dynamic Range capability achieves high resolution, more detailed
images in high contrast lighting conditions (for example, strong backlight). With this sensor architecture, the
DCS-6111 maintains a constant balance for different variations in illumination and significantly improves the
quality of real-time videos.The DCS-6111 incorporates an varifocal lens equipped with IR LEDs that offers
more flexibility and enhanced security, thus making it an ideal solution for 24 hour surveillance.
• Enhanced Streaming Video - The DCS-6111 uses D-Link’s System-on-Chip (SoC) products to provide high
quality video compression in MPEG-4 and Motion JPEG formats. The camera supports simultaneous dual-
streaming for live monitoring and recording. With the free-bundled 32-channel recording software, the DCS-
6111 is an ideal solution for high quality viewing and reliable recording. The live camera feed of the camera
can be pulled from the 3G cellular network by using a compatible cell phone or PDA with a 3G video player.
Anywhere within the 3GPP service area, users are offered a flexible and convenient way to remotely monitor
a home or office in real time.
• Various Installation Methods at Different Angles - The DCS-6111 has a unique built-in three axis mechanism that
can be drop-mounted to the ceiling for an unobtrusive look, or mounted on a wal with the same housing design.
For optimal detection, the DCS-6111 is recommended for indoor ceiling mounting to prevent possible damage
that maybe caused by a burglar.
• Wired PoE Access - For effective surveillance in and around a building, this camera comes with a built-in
802.3af compliant Power Over Ethernet (PoE) module, which eases the installation process and also gives
users the freedom to place the camera anywhere. In addition, the 10/100BASE-TX Ethernet port is also
provided for convenient Ethernet connection or broadband internet gateway with router.
• Smart & Easy To Use - The DCS-6111 includes the D-ViewCam software that allows users to view up to
32 cameras on a single computer from a central location. Users can set up automated e-mail alerts to be

D-Link DCS-6111 User Manual

Section 1 - Product Overview
• Supported Protocols - The DCS-6111 supports IPv6, the latest version of the Internet Protocol and a wide
variety of protocols such as RTSP, FTP, SMTP, NTP, HTTP and HTTPS. In addition, UPnP DDNS and
LLTD protocols are supported for Windows Vista users. Users can sign up with one of the free Dynamic DNS
services available on the web to assign a name and domain name to the camera (e.g.mycamera.dlinkddns.
com). This allows them to remotely access the camera without having to remember the IP address. Using a
multicast stream will preserve the network bandwidth. Unicast streaming is point-to-point transmission; on
the other hand, multicast streaming enables the server to stream to a multicast IP address on the network,
and the clients need to subscribe to the IP address in order to receive the stream. DCS-6111 features a
built-in Samba client for NAS, and hence does not require a direct connection to a PC or any other hardware
or software to capture and transfer images.
• Alarm Inputs/Outputs for External Devices - This network camera features an integrated 2-way audio support
via external audio input/output connections. This two-way audio function allows users to listen as well as
talk back at the remote camera location. The auxiliary input/output connectors enable users to connect to a
variety of external devices such as PIR sensors, switches and alarm relays. With programmable alarming
equipment, users can develop a variety of security applications which are used for triggering external
devices based on events. The DCS-6111 provides an industry standard input/output external connectors
for connectivity.

supports 2128 (about 3.4×1038) addresses. IPv6 hosts can configure themselves automatically when connected to a
routed IPv6 network using ICMPv6 router discovery messages. If IPv6 stateless address autoconfiguration (SLAAC)
proves unsuitable, a host can use stateful configuration (DHCPv6) or be configured manually. In particular, stateless
autoconfiguration is not used by routers, these must be configured manually or by other means.

How does motion detection work?
There are two parameters for setting the motion detection: Sensitivity and Percentage. In the illustration above, frame
A and frame B are two sequential images. Pixel differences between the two frames are detected and highlighted in
gray (frame C), and will be compared with the sensitivity setting. Sensitivity is a value that expresses the sensitivity to
moving objects. Higher sensitivity settings are expected to sense a slight movement while smaller sensitivity settings
tend to neglect it. When the sensitivity is set to 70%, the Network Camera defines the pixels in the purple areas as
“alerted pixels” (frame D). Percentage is a value that expresses the proportion of “alerted pixels” to all pixels in the
motion detection window. In this case, 50% of pixels are identified as “alerted pixels”. When the percentage is set to
30%, the motions are judged to exceed the defined threshold; therefore, the motion window will be outlined in red.
For applications that require higher security management, it is suggested to set higher sensitivity settings and smaller
percentage values.

and web-based solutions, providing a low cost solution that can transmit high quality video images for monitoring. The WDR D&N Fixed
Dome Network Camera can be remotely managed, accessed and controlled using a web browser from any computer over an Intranet or
2. What is the maximum number of users that can access DCS-6111 simultaneously?
The maximum number of users that can log onto the WDR D&N Fixed Dome Network Camera at the same time is 10. Please keep in mind
the overall performance of the transmission speed will be reduced if many users have logged on to the camera simultaneously.
There is no limit on the number of users when a multicast-enabled router is being used. The multicast protocol helps reduce the network
bandwidth consumption.
Note that the Network Camera must be configured to enable multicast streaming. For more information, see RTSP Streaming on page
3. What algorithm is used to compress the digital image?
The WDR D&N Fixed Dome Network Camera utilizes MPEG-4 simple profile or MJPEG Mode image compression technology providing
high quality images. MJPEG is a standard for image compression and it can be applied to various web browsers and application software
without installing any extra software
4. Can I capture still images from the WDR D&N Fixed Dome Network Camera?
Yes you can capture still images using the snapshot function.

1. Can the Network Camera be used outdoors?
The WDR D&N Fixed Dome Network Camera is not weatherproof. It needs to be equipped with a weatherproof case for outdoor use but
it is not recommended.
2. When physically connecting the Network Camera to a network, what network cabling is required?
The WDR D&N Fixed Dome Network Camera uses Category 5 UTP cable allowing 10 Base-T and 100 Base-T networking solutions.
3. Can the Network Camera be setup as a PC-cam on a computer?
No, the WDR D&N Fixed Dome Network Camera is used only on an Ethernet or Fast Ethernet network. The D-Link DSB-C110, DSB-C310,
can be used as a PC Camera (Webcam).
4. Can the Network Camera be connected to the network if it consists only of private IP addresses?
Yes, the WDR D&N Fixed Dome Network Camera can be connected to a LAN using only a private IP address.
5. Can the Network Camera be installed and work if a firewall exists in the network?
If a firewall exists in the network, port 80 is open for ordinary data communication and HTTPS port 443 for . The DCS-6111 uses RTSP
port 554, RTP port 556, and RTP port 558 for streaming audio and video. These ports (or the ports you have specified in the Setup Tab
in the Configuration screen) need to be opened on the firewall.
6. Why am I unable to access the Network Camera from a web browser?
If a router or firewall is used on the network, the correct ports for the DCS-6111 may not be configured on the router or firewall. To correct
the problem, you need to determine if the DCS-6111 is behind a router or firewall and if the router or firewall is properly configured for
the ports the DCS-6111 is using. Refer to Page 42 for help in opening the correct ports on a router or firewall for use with the DCS-6111.
Other possible problems might be due to the network cable. Try replacing your network cable. Test the network interface of the product
by connecting a local computer to the unit. If the problem is not solved, the WDR D&N Fixed Dome Network Camera might be faulty.
7. Why does the Network Camera work locally but not externally?
• This might be caused by network firewall protection. The setting of the firewall may need to be changed in order for the WDR D&N
Fixed Dome Network Camera to be accessible outside of your local LAN. Check with the Network Administrator for your network.
• Make sure that your WDR D&N Fixed Dome Network Camera isn’t conflicting with any Web server you may have running on your
• The default router setting might be a possible reason. Check that the configuration of the router settings allows the WDR D&N Fixed
Dome Network Camera to be accessed outside of your local LAN.

8. I connected the Network Camera directly to a computer with a cross-over Ethernet cable and received a
Windows error upon running the Installation Wizard?
• This Windows error will occur if the WDR D&N Fixed Dome Network Camera is connected to a computer that is not properly configured
with a valid IP address. Turn off DHCP from the Network Settings in Windows and configure the computer with a valid IP address or
connect the camera to a router with DHCP enabled.
• This error can also occur if the Installation Wizard icon had been clicked more than once from the setup wizard.
9. Noisy images occur. How can I solve the problem?
The video images might be noisy if the WDR D&N Fixed Dome Network Camera is used in a very low light environment. To solve this
issue you need more lighting.
10. The images appear to be of poor quality, how can I improve the image quality?
• Make sure that your computer’s display properties are set above 256 colors. Using 16 or 256 colors on your computer will produce
dithering artifacts in the image, making the image appear to be of poor quality.
• The configuration on the WDR D&N Fixed Dome Network Camera image display is incorrect. Through the Setup > Image Setup section
of the Web management you need to adjust the image related parameters such as brightness, white balance and power line frequency
for fluorescent light.
