D-Link releases two new smart home HD Wi-Fi cameras


Networking product vendor D-Link has announced two affordable HD Wi-Fi cameras are joining its stable of smart home security solutions, with full Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and IFTTT support.

D-Link’s new cameras are named the DCS-8000LH Mini HD Wi-Fi Camera and the DCS-8100LH HD 180 degree Wi-Fi camera, respectively.

Both cameras offer premium features including advanced video monitoring, wide viewing angles and, as the name suggests, crisp 720p high-definition quality.

As you would expect from D-Link’s Connected Home range,  the two new cameras can also be connected or controlled through home automation platforms including Google’s Assistant, Amazon’s Alexa – very timely with the first batch of Echo devices now landing in Australian homes and offices, and IFTTT (“if this then that”), to personalise the smart home experience. This means one can realistically utter such voice commands as "Hey Google, show me the upstairs camera on my TV."

The cameras also provide cloud recording and other features through D-Link’s mydlink smartphone and tablet app.

Both cameras also have a built-in IR LED, providing five metres of night vision in total darkness, coupled with automatic push alert notifications so one is always aware if someone is sneaking around a property.

The DCS-8000LH Mini HD Wi-Fi camera offers 120 degrees of view while the DCS-8100LH camera delivers a vast 180 degree landscape.

Graeme Reardon, managing director of D-Link ANZ, said, "The Mini HD Wi-Fi Camera is classic D-Link home security – a stylistic and aesthetically pleasing design that allows it to easily fit in with its surroundings while remaining packed with all the necessary features for any home or space that you need to keep an extra set of eyes on.”

Sound and motion detection capabilities allow for push alerts to notify home owners what's happening even when they're away and can also trigger video clip recordings to a local microSD card slot or cloud recording.

The HD 180 Degree Wi-Fi Camera (DCS-8100LH) is available now for A$199.95 and NZ$249.99. The HD Wi-Fi Camera (DCS-8000LH) is available now for A$149.95 and NZ$179.9
