D-Link adds battery-powered and LTE cameras to its home security line

D-Link introduced two new home monitoring cameras at CES that tackle logistics shortfalls of domestic security. One is a wire-free system boasting battery power that lasts up to 11 months, while the other can operate and record over LTE. Additionally, D-Link has refreshed three of its simpler, affordable models. All have sound and motion triggers, can record footage to the cloud and integrate with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and IFTTT.

The Wire-Free Full HD Indoor/Outdoor Camera operates around a hub and as many cameras as desired, all of which operate on battery life. Kits start at $250 for one camera, $350 for two and additional cameras cost $220 apiece. The $300 LTE model does exactly what it says, which is useful if Wi-Fi is spotty or unavailable. Both cameras record in 1080p and will be available in Q2 2018.

D-Link also refreshed three of its simpler home security cameras. The lower-tier $60 HD Wi-Fi Camera handles basic home monitoring in 720p with a 120-degree field of view from a static position, while the $90 mid-grade Full HD version bumps that up to 1080p and 140 degrees. The top camera of the set, which retails for $120, includes pan and tilt functionality to cover 340 degrees in total. All three will be available in Q2 2018.

You can set up and control all of D-Link’s new cameras from your smartphone or device with the updated mydlink app. Users can be alerted when they detect sound or motion and watch live video straight from the app. All of D-Links cameras can record locally on microSD or to the cloud using D-Link’s subscription options, which will be available in Q1 2018 and range from $1 a month for 2GB of video up to $10 a month for 30GB.
