Main features

This new D-Link DCS-8635LH Cloud IP camera is aimed at a home environment and even a small and medium office, to keep everything well watched thanks to its 2K resolution and truly spectacular video clarity. In addition, this new model is not too expensive either, and we can buy it for approximately 100 euros.

This camera has a 4 megapixel sensorcapable of providing a 2K resolution (2560 x 1440) at 30 FPS, so we are going to be able to zoom in on the image and it doesn’t get too pixelated, we will see the image very clearly through the mydlink app and also on a computer, since it supports the ONVIF S standard and the RTSP protocol to view the image. camera centrally from an NVR. This camera has a viewing angle of 105.4° horizontally, 56.4° vertically and 125° diagonally, however, we must bear in mind that it is robotic, it is capable of rotating 340º horizontally, although not vertically. Thanks to the fact that it is robotized, we will be able to monitor a very wide area of ​​our home.

This new camera has infrared night vision at a maximum distance of 7 meters, thanks to this, we will be able to record at all times everything that is happening in the room or in outdoor spaces where we place it. This model has IP65 certification against water and dust, so we can place it perfectly on the porch or in our garden to monitor everything that happens outside the home. Other very important features are that it incorporates bidirectional audio, that is, it has both a microphone to listen to everything that happens on the other side, as well as a speaker, to be able to speak from the mydlink app with the person on the other side. In addition, it has a built-in 90dB siren to scare away thieves in case of motion detection.

Regarding the connectivity of this camera, It has Wi-Fi in the 2.4GHz band and in the 5GHz band, so we are going to connect it directly to the WiFi router in our home or to a WiFi access point. An important detail is that in the configuration wizard it only allows us to connect to 2.4GHz, but later we do have the option to change the WiFi network to the 5GHz band. By incorporating Bluetooth we will be able to install it very easily and quickly through the mydlink app, in addition, it has support for the WPA3-Personal protocol, so if you have a WiFi router or AP with this type of encryption, you will to be able to connect this camera without problems and have the maximum possible security in communications. We also have one Fast Ethernet port (10/100Mbps) in the power cable itself, therefore, we have the possibility to cable this IP camera to have the best performance and the minimum possible latency.

This D-Link DCS-8635LH camera has cloud recording if an event is detected, it also has recording on the micro SD card up to 256GB that we are going to be able to install, and we are even going to be able to make a continuous recording on the micro SD card, a very interesting novelty that we did not have until now. Having compatibility with ONVIF and RTSP protocol, we will be able to control this camera and centralize the recordings in an NVR, either from the manufacturer D-Link to store all the recordings, or in a NAS server through software. This camera is capable of detecting the following events to make recordings in the Cloud or SD:

  • Motion detection.
  • Sound detection.
  • People detection, based on integrated AI.
  • Vehicle detection, based on integrated AI.
  • Glass breakage detection.

As you can see, we have extensive detection options to make event recordings fully automatically. Through the app we will be able to configure all these detections and decide what to do, in addition, it also has support to configure the geofence and activate the cameras when we leave the house, so that they are activated automatically when we leave. Of course, we will be able to configure the privacy mode as we want, on demand or at scheduled times.

This camera has complete integration with the mydlink app for Android and iOS smartphones, in addition, we must remember that for the purchase of a D-Link camera we will have 1 year of recordings in the Cloud totally free, without having to pay, and this update It is extensible to two other cameras that we already have in our home, because the free plan update includes a total of 3 cameras.

Once we know the main features, we are going to see what this new model is like in our unboxing.

Unboxing and first impressions

The first thing that caught our attention about this camera is that it is designed to be placed directly on the wall, it is something that we must take into account, it is not designed to be placed on a table like other D-Link models. Inside the box we have everything necessary to place it perfectly in the final location, the most advisable thing would be to put it on a wall in exterior places or on a column, with the aim of being able to cover the 340º that allows us to rotate the camera horizontal.

We must also take into account the quality of the materials, since it has the IP65 certification against dust and water, this means that we are going to be able to put it in outdoor environments without any problem. In addition, we have 2K resolution, two-way audio, infrared night vision, micro SD card slot up to 256GB, and continuous recording or based on detection events, and even recording on an NVR either by hardware or by software on a NAS server. .

The recording in the mydlink Cloud will be free during the first year if no more cameras are purchased with the same account, or a payment plan is purchased, however, it must be taken into account that these payment plans are made at the level of the account, and not by camera individually. If you have 3 or more D-Link cameras, it is worth buying the paid plan to enjoy cloud recording without limitations.

In the following video you will be able to see in detail the main features of the camera, the contents of the package and all the parts of it.

Soon we are going to offer you a complete analysis of this D-Link DCS-8635LH Cloud IP camera, where you will see in detail how it is and also the image quality in both photography and video that it is capable of providing with 2K resolution.
