  • Summary: 15" long and bigger than a softball round. This unit was stolen right off the side of my house. The mounting bracket remains in place but the connecting arm between the bracket and the camera housing broke right off. (At least I caught them on camera!!!)
  • Pros: Because of its size I was able to fit both my D-Link DCS-3220 Camera and a DWL-P200 PoE inside the case. Cat5e cable runs through the mounting arm.
  • Cons: This case is larger than I expected. After mounting it on the side of my garage, it looks like one of those cameras you see above the street lights. Mounting bracket is not strong enough to prevent theft.

This thing is huge

  • Summary: Why does this need to be 14.5" long when the camera is only about 6"?
  • Pros: Very nice looking, good for outdoor installations (to an extent, shouldn't be used in extreme environments - see dlinks website for details).
  • Cons: Absolutely HUGE. It's almost 15" long. This is definitely not for indoor installations. I bought it with the intent of installing it in a hallway. Ended up just putting the DCS-3220 on it's ugly supplied mounting bracket. Way to big.
