D-Link launches new high definition wireless smart cameras
D-Link has launched two new high definition wireless cameras and upgraded the companion app to meet all your home monitoring needs.
The two new cameras are the DCS 8300LH Full HD Wi-Fi Camera and the DCS 8525LH Full HD Pan and Tilt Wi-Fi Camera and they extend D-Link’s Smart Camera LH Series range.
The new mydlink app also offers new features and opens up cloud recording options along with third-party integration with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and IFTTT.
Both cameras also come with sound and motion detection functionality as well as two-way audio so you can talk to and hear whoever you see on camera.
Through the mydlink app, users can also view live footage from all the cameras either one by one or simultaneously and also access video recordings.
There is also smart automation functionality so users can create different scenarios for different cameras as well as setting schedules.
“These two new Full HD Wi-Fi cameras as well as the new and enhanced mydlink app show our commitment to ongoing advancement of our products and services, in terms of both functionality and ease of use,” says D-Link ANZ MD Graham Reardon.
“Not only are there now affordable Cloud Recording options to support these cameras and ensure a more seamless Connected Home experience, but the customisation settings raise the bar to another level.
“For example, you can now set a camera to send you a notification when motion is detected while you are away from home, but then activate privacy mode when come home, which turns all cameras off automatically, with just a simple tap within the new mydlink app.”
