6 Reasons to Choose a D-Link Metal Switch

6 Reasons to Choose a D-Link Metal Switch

If you need a simple switch to expand ports on your network and don’t have a preference in brand, almost any switch will do as long as you have a decent warranty. But for a business, it pays to spend a bit more money to get something that will last and is easier to troubleshoot than your average plastic switch. This is especially true if you’re supporting a network remotely and can’t necessarily control the environment 24/7. Here are the top reasons how our metal switches help you keep your network running like a boss. 1. Metal Case No surprises here, holding one in your hand and feeling the weight, you know that this switch will take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’ compared to a plastic switch that you can kick around like a soccer ball. 2. Front Facing Ports What you see is what you get, with Activity and Link LEDs right on the port, it’s easy to see what’s connected vs. switches that have their LEDs on one side and their ports on the other side. 3. K-Lock An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, better to lock down your switch with a Kensington Lock cable than risk the network going down because someone decided to make off with your good looking switch. 4. Grounding Screw A bit overkill, but if you’re in Lightning Country, this could save you a shocking experience. 5. Wall Mounting Kit Attaching it to a wall will prevent any Godzillas from stomping on it, but even if that did...

What makes a vandal-proof camera vandal-proof?

What makes a vandal-proof camera vandal-proof?

When a surveillance camera is installed in a location where physical access to the camera is possible, precautions should be taken to protect the camera from vandalism or theft. One factor to consider when selecting a camera is how vandal-proof the camera is. But what exactly does it mean when a surveillance camera is rated as vandal-proof? There are three elements to vandal-proofing. First the camera should be difficult to open or re-adjust. This is accomplished through the use of recessed security screws that require a special tool included with the camera. A standard screwdriver or hex driver cannot be used to open a vandal-proof camera. The second aspect of making a camera resistant to vandalism is to build the camera with materials that make it highly resistant to impact, such as a swing from a hammer or a baseball bat. How do you know how much of a blow a camera can withstand? There is an international standard for measuring impact (IEC 62262, the equivalent of the EU standard EN 62262) and a camera manufacturer can submit products to be impact ranked by a certified testing facility. The testing is based on the type of hammer, mass of the hammer and the resulting impact energy (measure in joules). The ratings range from IK1 (the weakest) to IK10 (the strongest). The charts at the bottom of this article show the details involved in providing an impact rating. Note that D-Link outdoor dome cameras have a certified IK10 rating. The third element of vandal-proofing a surveillance camera is one that...
