For Digital Home owners concerned about what goes on around their house at night, D-Link has introduced its new Wireless N Day/Night Network Camera which can integrate into any wireless home network.
Unlike traditional USB-connected webcams, the D-Link DCS-932L security camera features a built-in CPU and web servers so streaming video can be sent directly to the network without a PC.
The camera, whose maximum power consumption is just two watts, offers 802.11n Wi-Fi connectivity, Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) for easy installation, Motion JPEG, and 20 frames per second (fps) streaming, as well as new infrared illumination technology for night viewing. D-Links says the infrared technology enables users to monitor a home or small office at up to 16 feet away from the camera.
Live video streams can be viewed on a personal computer or on a Apple or Android based smartphone using the free mydlink app which is available from the Apple App Store or the Android Market Place.
The VGA (640x480) resolution DCS-932L also comes with D-ViewCam camera management software for Windows PCs, which allows consumers to record video from any mydlink camera to a local hard drive. It also lets consumers set trigger motion detection, recording schedules and e-mail alert notifications for up to 32 cameras.
The DCS-932L Wireless N Network Camera is now available in North America for $150.
