D-Link on Tuesday extended its range of Cloud Cameras, adding the Wireless N H.264 Day/Night PT Network Camera (DCS-5020L) into the product mix.
The new camera is features pan and tilt, audio detection, and a Wi-Fi repeater mode, among other things. D-Link said that the DCS-5020L is a powerful and competitively priced way to enhance home security.
The camera comes with mydlink Cloud Services, meaning it works with mobile phones and tablets, and it also supports D-Link’s Zero Configuration technology.
“Every family deserves a way to connect with the most important things in life, even when they can’t be around. The DCS-5020L with pan and tilt covers more of the house, helping users see more of their children, elderly family members, even pets,” said Harrison Albert, Regional Director, D-Link Middle East and Africa.
“It’s easy to use, and with D-Link’s Cloud Services for convenient viewing on a mobile device, the DCS-5020L offers the peace of mind that comes with knowing everything at home is fine.”
D-Link said that the new camera can catch every detail at day or night. In bright conditions, a filter blocks infrared light for more realistic colours. When night mode is engaged, the camera’s system of LEDs lights up the scene with invisible infrared rays for a detailed black-and-white video at distances of up to eight metres.
Pan and tilt allows the camera to see every corner of a room, while the wide-angle lens captures an area up to 30-percent larger than previous models at a glance.
Live video feeds can be viewed on an Internet-connected iPhone, iPad or Android device with the free mydlink mobile app. The app allows users to control the pan-and-tilt function and save or email snapshots. Video can be recorded to a PC on the local network with the free D-ViewCam camera management software for Windows PCs.
The device connects to a home network either by Ethernet or 802.11n wireless, and also includes a wireless repeater mode that extends Wi-Fi signal to every room.
