VIDEO: D-Link brings 802.11ac HD Wi-Fi camera to A/NZ


D-Link’s first consumer security camera with 802.11ac Wi-Fi has arrived in A/NZ at last, with advanced monitoring features to challenge Netgear’s Arlo solutions.

D-Link has long made a range of wireless surveillance cameras for business and home uses and users, but today is the day its newest model, featuring superfast 802.11ac Wi-Fi capabilities, has arrived.

Dubbed the DCS-935L HD Wi-Fi camera, D-Link says it offers ‘advanced home and small business monitoring features including sound detection, motion detection, triggered alerts, and day/night viewing for a robust and affordable surveillance solution.’

With 802.11ac supporting the 5GHz wireless band as well as the traditional 2.4GHz band, you can choose to use 5GHz connectivity so you have a clearly channel, meaning better bandwidth and smoother video streaming.

D-Link’s A/NZ MD, Graeme Reardon said: “For home owners and renters looking for a DIY home security solution, our HD Wi-Fi cameras are a great fit and allow users to avoid the additional cost of installations, contracts or subscriptions.

“Our newest HD Wi-Fi camera delivers faster 11AC Wi-Fi connectivity so users can place them further from the router with a faster connection, making it more flexible for placing cameras where surveillance is needed.”

Here’s D-Link’s video of its new camera:

Besides faster Wi-Fi, which also delivers an extended range that means more placement options, you also get ‘an expanded viewing area with a 78 degree horizontal field of view along with crisp HD 720p video quality for clear and detailed security footage. Sound and motion detection capabilities allow for push alerts to notify homeowners what's happening even when they're away.’

Additional noteworthy features include:

  • Setup via the mydlink Home mobile app with D-Link Direct Connect wireless setup
  • Night vision up to 5 metres
  • microUSB power input for flexible power options
  • Push alerts on motion and sound detection
  • Supports mydlink Home app for remote viewing (for iOS and Android)

Available this month for $149.95 at D-Link’s website and its network of retailers, resellers, channel partners, distributors and online retailers, you can also find out more information about it here
