Many see home automation as the next big thing in the consumer electronics space and D-Link is keen to plant a flag in the emerging connected smart home with its new mydlink Home range of smart devices. The line includes five modules aimed at letting homeowners control technology around the home using a smartphone or tablet, be it from the comfort of the sofa or when out and about.

The heart of mydlink is made up of four modules designed to keep an eye (or sensor) on the home and react accordingly. According to D-Link, these made to be simple to set up with one-button installation using QR codes and a setup wizard.

The mydlink modules include:

  • Home Monitor HD: This is a one-megapixel camera with wireless AC connectivity, night-vision with infrared illumination and an integrated microphone. This has a fixed point of view and is intended for monitoring entrances, garages, and similar areas.
  • Home Monitor 360: A fully-featured pan and tilt camera, the Monitor 360 is for monitoring large areas or to reduce blind spots. It boasts real-time H.264 and MJPEG compression, night vision capability and an integrated microphone.
  • Home Smart Plug: This Wi-Fi-enabled module is a simple device that plugs into a wall outlet, with appliances then plugged into the module. This allows users to turn appliances on and off remotely, schedule automatic activation and deactivation, receive activity notifications and monitor energy use. The plug also has a overheating safety cutout.
  • Home Wi-Fi Motion Sensor: This motion sensor is a one-piece module that also plugs into a mains socket. It has one-button setup and can detect any movement within 8 m (26 ft).

These modules are controlled by the mydlink Home mobile app, available for Android or iOS, that allows direct control of the modules and can be used to set schedules to turn appliances on and off. It also sends email alerts when activity is detected by the modules, and can be used to pair the wireless modules so they can work together, such as the Motion Sensor pairing wirelessly with a Smart Plug connected to a lamp to turn it on when someone enters the room.

The mydlink system is designed to work in concert with not only the aforementioned modules, but also the mydlink Home Music Everywhere module. This wirelessly streams music from an Android or iOS device, or any network-connected media player that supports DLNA or AirPlay, to a connected speaker of home stereo with a standard 3.5 mm input jack. Like the other modules, it plugs directly into the mains and operates using a secured Wi-Fi connection.

“Most households now have digital music libraries spread across several devices, combined with music from online streaming services. Music Everywhere makes it incredibly easy to tap into these and stream music around the house, without the short range limitations of Bluetooth,” says Kevin Wen, President of D-Link Europe. “For added convenience, it also boosts Wi-Fi coverage in hard-to-reach areas, such as basements and upstairs bedrooms, ensuring a great listening experience no matter where you are in your home. Music Everywhere helps you turn your simple home into a smart home.”

D-Link says that Music Everywhere can not only increase a home Wi-Fi network’s range, but also the speed to upwards of 300 Mbps.

“D-Link’s motto is ‘Home is where the smart is’ and the new mydlink Home range fulfills that perfectly. Our complete smart home ecosystem truly simplifies home automation, control and security,” says Wen. “Most current ‘smart home’ systems are expensive and complicated to install. We are leading the market in developing this affordable, full-featured do-it-yourself suite of home automation solutions. The devices can be used individually or together, set up quickly and don’t require any monthly fees or subscriptions. Now it’s easy to turn your simple home into a smart home.”

The mydlink Home range and Music Everywhere module will go on sale in Europe on October 7 with pricing yet to be announced.

D-Link DWL-8610AP Combines Wireless Speeds of 802.11ac Technology with Flexibility and Scalability of D-Link’s Unified Wireless Solution

D-Link recently announced the DWL-8610AP, a new high power, 802.11ac unified wireless access point. Rich with advanced radio management and security features, the DWL-8610AP allows IT professionals to get the most of their wireless network and maximize their users’ experience.

dlink-DWL-8610AP

The D-Link DWL-8610AP delivers reliable, high-speed wireless performance using the latest 802.11ac standards, with maximum wireless signal rates of up to 450 Mbps using the 2.4 GHz band, and 1300 Mbps using the 5 GHz band1. It supports impressive device densities and offers optimal range and coverage over both bands.

“Our students and faculty access our wireless network with a variety of devices, including laptops, tablets and smartphones,” said Kevin O’Neill, technology director, Gretna Public Schools in Gretna Nebraska. “As we continue to scale our network, the DWL-8610AP with 802.11ac technology allows us to handle these increasing demands and connect more users and more devices.”

The DWL-8610AP is easy to install and can be powered using the included AC to DC adapter, or directly through the network cable using Power over Ethernet from any switch or midspan injector that supports IEEE 802.3at.

DWL-8610AP_A1_LowResFront

“Wireless users in schools and businesses expect connectivity and bandwidth – it’s all about performance,” said Steven Olen, director of product marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. “Our Unified Wireless systems maximize user experience and help achieve this via seamless roaming, load balancing, and other advanced RF management features.”

About the DWL-8610AP

Versatile and powerful, the DWL-8610AP can be flexibly deployed as an autonomously managed, standalone wireless access point, or as a centrally managed access point controlled by a D-Link Unified Wireless Switch or Wireless Controller. Businesses can start with standalone mode deployment and then migrate to a centrally managed system anytime later.

An important benefit to a centrally managed wireless network is proper RF management. When a number of access points are deployed close to each other, interference may result. The DWL-8610AP will sense a neighbor nearby and automatically select a non-interfering channel, greatly reducing RF interference and allowing administrators to deploy APs more densely. When a nearby AP is operating on the same channel, the DWL-8610AP will minimize interference by automatically lowering its transmission power. At any time should a nearby AP drop from the network, the DWL-8610AP will increase its transmission power to expand coverage.

Additional benefits include:

  • Band Steering: detects and steers 5 GHz capable clients away from the overcrowded 2.4 GHz network to the less congested 5 GHz network.
  • Load balancing: ensures maximum performance by limiting the maximum number of users per access point.
  • Beamforming technology: enables even greater reach. By focusing the wireless signal at connected devices, it guarantees continuous fast wireless speeds, even under heavy network utilization or in areas that have bad wireless signal.
  • Plenum-rated chassis: adheres to strict fire regulations for placement in air passageways.
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty: carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty, furthering D-Link’s commitment to product quality and long-term customer confidence.

Availability

The new D-Link DWL-8610AP unified wireless access point is currently shipping through D-Link’s vast network of channel partners, including value-added resellers and distributors and online retailers. For more information, visit www.dlink.com/dwl-8610ap.

Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range. Wireless range and speed rates are D-Link relative performance measurements based on the wireless range and speed rates of a standard wireless product from D-Link. Maximum throughput based on D-Link 802.11ac devices.
