D-Link will be showing off its latest range of wireless networking and smart home devices at CES 2019, Las Vegas. This will include a new generation of smart mesh Wi-Fi routers, a number of new mydlink cameras that work with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant, as well as exciting new features to the mydlink app.
The latest D-Link Exo Series, with McAfee Protection, will be showcased for the first time, and will include mesh-enabled, smart Wi-Fi routers and extenders. The Exo Series provides value-added, premium features which make this range of devices superior to other household networking solutions.
D-Link’s new DCS-8600LH Full HD Outdoor Wi-Fi Camera and DCS-8515LH HD Pan & Tilt Wi-Fi Camera also join D-Link’s family of best-in-class surveillance cameras. Both cameras have been designed to meet the requirements of the modern smart home, including innovative voice control features and compatibility with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant.
“Secure, seamless wireless connectivity both in the home and the office is not only needed, it is now expected. Our new Exo Series with McAfee Protection aims to prevent, detect and combat cyber threats, whilst ensuring first class Wi-Fi service,” said Kevin Wen, President at D-Link Europe.
“We are continuing to see consumers grow more comfortable with using smart home devices via voice assistant features, and there are no signs of this slowing down. As we continue to innovate, compatibility with Amazon Alexa and Google Alexa are a priority for us, and we are thrilled to showcase a number of new products at CES which utilise this” continued Wen.
Updates to the mydlink app will also be presented. The app now includes two new features; Rich Notifications and Smart Recaps, giving consumers increased control of their homes/offices at the touch of their fingertips. Users will receive instant screenshots when a motion event is detected, can call an emergency contact when a notification is received, are able to create a short time-lapse video of footage captured and can filter existing recorded videos by type of event detected.
“Our customers are increasingly looking for instant, convenient ways to keep their homes and offices more secure. The updates to our mydlink app have been developed to allow our users to make the make the most of their D-Link devices through a single, simple interface” said Kevin Wen, President of D-Link Europe.
