Full-featured Wireless Surveillance Camera


The DCS-5222L Cloud PTZ Camera is ideal for small and medium business applications which require coverage of a large area, or remote monitoring. It gives you detailed, 24-hour remote surveillance of a large area by using a megapixel high-resolution HD image sensor for highquality video and a built-in IR illuminator for low-light surveillance. The DCS-5222L can also be connected to your network wirelessly, allowing you to place the camera anywhere that has a Wi-Fi signal, eliminating the need to install additional network cabling.

mydlink™: the easiest way to setup up your camera and monitor your home


Connecting a camera on your network and accessing it has traditionally required complex configuration. mydlink™ makes it easy to access your camera from wherever you are, whenever it’s convenient for you. Using the free mydlink™ Lite app for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, you can connect and setup your mydlink™ camera without turning on a computer. A step-by-step guide has your camera up and running in a matter of minutes.
Through the mydlink™ Lite app, you can set up a free mydlink™ account which allows you to view and manage your camera from any Internet connected computer. If you have more than one camera, you can add it to your existing mydlink™ account and watch all your cameras from a single location.
Accessing your cameras on the go is easy too. Just download the free mydlink™ Lite app for your iPhone or Android device and you can quickly and easily view your camera feed from anywhere with a wireless or 3G/4G LTE connection. You can even access videos recorded onto the included SD card and talk back through the app with 2-way audio support. Thanks to this app, you can monitor on-the-go even if you don’t have access to a computer.
If you have a mydlink™-enabled Cloud Router, setting up and configuring your DCS-5222L is a snap, thanks to Zero Configuration. Simply connect your camera to its power adapter and then connect your camera to your Cloud Router with an Ethernet cable - the camera will automatically be added to your account.

Sharp Image Monitoring from Different Angles


With sharp, responsive pan/tilt movement and digital zoom, the Cloud PTZ Camera gives you full control, so you can quickly scan a wide area from a variety of angles, and 10x digital zoom lets you zoom in on specific areas for more detail. The DCS-5222L can also be set to automatically move to specific preset positions, allowing the camera to patrol particular areas of interest within a surveillance area.

A Complete Surveillance System1


The DCS-5222L includes a built-in CPU, allowing it to function as a complete, standalone surveillance tool. Recordings can be made continuously, whenever movement is detected, or according to a predefined schedule. E-mail notifications can be sent when motion is detected, keeping you informed of what is happening, no matter where you are. The built-in microSD slot2 allows the camera to record independently. The DCS-5222L can also be used as part of a multi-camera surveillance system through the included D-ViewCam™ software, which supports up to 32 cameras.
