Until now, consumers who wanted a home monitoring solution needed advanced technical knowledge to navigate the complexities involved in setting up an IP camera. Not any longer. D-Link is launching mydlink, a free Internet portal service giving users a simple and convenient way to keep an eye on the things that matter to them most.
Easy to install, simply insert the CD included with any mydlink compatible camera to begin the setup process, then just a few clicks later you're ready. mydlink will detect compatible cameras set up in your home, garage or any indoor location and quickly and easily configure them onto a network, allowing for convenient access to your video feeds from wherever there is Internet access.
The ideal solution for keeping an eye on pets from work, children in the next room, or your house while you're away, mydlink grows with your needs, supporting up to four mydlink compatible cameras. The mydlink portal provides users with the reassurance of being able to monitor what is important to them from any Internet connected device, 24 hours a day, via high-quality live video.
For those constantly on the move, mydlink can also be accessed on major mobile platforms including iPhones, iPads and Android smartphones via the free mydlink mobile app*, providing maximum convenience and flexibility.
Chris Davies, General Manager, D-Link UK & Ireland said: "There has always been strong demand for consumers to keep an eye on the things that are important to them when they are away from home, but until now setting up a remote monitoring system has been quite daunting. D-Link always strives to take complex technology and make it possible for everyone to use. So we are very excited about mydlink, which breaks down all the boundaries that users have traditionally faced when using this technology. Whether you want to monitor a pet at home, check on a sleeping baby or keep an eye on the garden while on holiday, mydlink makes the task a simple one."
mydlink is available on the compact new DCS-930L Wireless N Home Network Camera and DCS-932L Wireless N Day & Night Home Network Camera from D-Link.
Unlike traditional webcams, the DCS-930L and DCS-932L contain a built-in CPU and web server, meaning that they will function without a computer needing to be turned on. Connecting wirelessly to a network, both models provide users with an easy and effective way to monitor their home or office remotely.
The compact design of both cameras means they can be placed virtually anywhere you need them and, with a built-in microphone, you can listen as well as view all of the action from afar.
The DCS-932L Wireless N Day & Night Camera provides the ideal 24-hour monitoring solution. With built-in Infrared LEDs and a low-lux image sensor, the DCS-932L lets you capture video, even when there is little or no light, perfect for keeping an eye on your baby in the nursery.
