D-Link's first ‘Color Night Vision’ wireless N day/night Camera provides SMBs ability to virtually see in the dark for advanced surveillance capabilities

D-Link, the networking solutions provider for small- and medium-sized businesses, today announced the world’s first IP surveillance camera with wireless 11ac support – the DCS-2136L. The mydlink-enabled Wireless N Day/Night Camera offers consumers and small business owners advanced networking and viewing capabilities, including a white light LED for ‘Color Night Vision’ viewing in complete darkness and 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity for longer range and greater bandwidth availability.

“With the demand for residential and SMB wireless surveillance steadily increasing, D-Link is moving the market forward with the first IP camera to support the new Wireless 11ac standard,” said Vance Kozik, director of marketing for IP Surveillance, D-Link Systems, Inc. “Whether you are looking for an entry-level, DIY camera or a high end professional enterprise solution, D-Link is dedicated to providing the best, most advanced IP surveillance solutions to its customers.”

The DCS-2136L is equipped with 802.11ac support, providing users with the most up-to-date wireless standard and ensuring Wi-Fi compatibility for years to come. In addition, the new camera delivers more bandwidth capabilities, which allows a greater number of cameras on the wireless network to help keep an eye on what matters most. For added flexibility, it is also backwards compatible with 802.11n/b/g, enabling users to keep their current Wi-Fi standard without having to upgrade right away.

The DCS-2136L boasts Color Night Vision, a new technology combined with an integrated white light LED, which allows the camera to show images in complete darkness while remaining in color mode - more helpful in identification than standard black-and-white night video. Additionally, the visible white light LED serves as a warning sign that the camera is on, and often results in intruders looking directly at the camera, capturing crucial facial details for recognition purposes.

Featuring mydlink support, the DCS-2136L offers simple installation and integration into an existing network with the mydlink portal to view streaming video from a PC, notebook, iPhone®, iPad®, or Android device, as well as enhanced remote capabilities via the mydlink+ and free mydlink Lite app. Both apps enable seamless access to camera feeds from anywhere and a host of newly added features for expanded remote control, including motion detection settings, pinch-to-zoom viewing, day/night viewing options, drag-and-drop reordering of devices, two-way audio, remote pan and tilt of live video, and the ability to configure recording1 schedules and override options2.

Additional Camera Features

The DCS-2136L includes D-Link® D-ViewCam, sophisticated management software for expanded surveillance options, allowing users to manage up to 32 network cameras, set email alert notifications, create recording schedules, and use motion detection to record directly to a hard drive. Additional camera features include:

  • HD resolution 1280x720 HD (1 megapixel)
  • Wi-Fi Protected Setup(WPS) for simple three step installation
  • H.264, MPEG-4 and Motion JPEG compression
  • ONVIF Support
  • Built-in PIR for enhanced motion detection
  • Two-way audio with built-in microphone and speaker
  • microSD Card (SDHC) slot for local storage


The DCS-2136L will be displayed at ASIS International 2013, Sept. 24-27 in Chicago, and will be available in late 2013 throughout D-Link’s vast network of channel partners, including value-added resellers and distributors.
