D-Link has released a new full high definition ultra-wide wi-fi camera which can deliver a 180-degree angle view – the widest angle lens available on any fixed consumer camera.
The DSC-2630L provides a handy DIY home security solution and offers wall-to-wall surveillance from a single device which is ideal for large rooms.
Onboard is a de-warping technology so users won’t see the “fish-eye” effect of the wide angle lens so the video can be viewed without distortion.
Also onboard is night vision for viewing up to five metres away in total darkness.
The camera captures high definition video as well as two-way communication between whoever is in front of the camera and the person viewing the camera’s video stream remotely like a telephone.
The DSC-2630L camera also has sound and motion detection and can send push notifications if the devices senses anything.
The D-Link camera has a microSD card slot so recordings can be stored locally rather than having to subscribe to an expensive cloud service.
Recordings are triggered when the camera is set to motion and sound detection and these can be viewed directly from the memory card.
The camera can be accessed and managed remotely from the free mydlink Lite app for iOS and Android devices as well as Windows Phones.
Under the hood the camera has 802.11AC connectivity so they can be connected to your router’s faster 5Ghz band for better bandwidth and easier full HD video streaming.
The DSC-2630L wide-view camera can be combined with the mydlink camera recorder (DNR-202L) which allows users to stream, record and playback up to four D-Link wi-fi cameras for 24/7 home security.
Recordings are stored locally from the recorder in a USB-connected hard drive.
The D-Link DSC-2630L Ultra-Wide View Wi-Fi camera is available now and is priced at $499.95.
