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.

Fortunately there are a range of tools available to parents today to help childproof the house and keep an extra eye on what’s going on.

With Back-to-School season upon us it’s officially time for rushed mornings, forgotten lunch and the dreaded homework. So in order to make the transition back to school life a little less painful, we’ve gathered a list of smart gadgets to take a few speed bumps out of the back to school road.


Be There, Even When You’re Not

Wi-Fi Cameras are great year round, but for parents who like to check in on the kids from the office, they’re especially handy during the school season. With D-Link Wi-Fi Cameras, you can check in on the family anytime right from your smartphone or tablet device to make sure they’re alright. Many Wi-Fi Cameras even have 2-way audio so you can even give a quick reminder to spend less time playing Wii (or whatever kids these days are in to) and more time on geometry.

Lock Smart

With Schlage locks you no longer need to worry about the kids losing their house keys or wonder whether leaving a hidden key for emergencies is too risky. In fact, with Schlage you don’t have to worry about keys at all! Everyone in your family can have their own code which they can use to come and go. An added benefit to keyless entry is that you’ll know exactly who is coming and going and when, with push alerts on your phone. And if you need to let someone without a code into the house, you can do so right from your mobile device.


With a few strategically placed Wi-Fi Smart Plugs you can make mornings and school nights easier. A Wi-Fi Smart Plug is essentially a smart outlet for your home. When you plug a device into a Smart Plug, you can turn it on and off right from your mobile device or set simple on/off schedules. Set up a few throughout the house for your lights and schedule them to turn off at the kid’s bedtime and on in the morning so you’re not waking up to a dark house. Even consider adding one to the kids rooms so when they need that extra push to get out of bed you can turn a light on right from your phone. Use a Wi-Fi Smart Plug throughout the day as well to check to see if you left a light on or even to turn to Crockpot on or off for dinner (Check out  my favorite Crockpot Recipe here)!

Know When Things Are Moving


Wi-Fi Motion Sensors are devices that plug right into spare outlets in your home and alert you with push or text notifications when they detect motion. With a Wi-Fi Motion sensor set up near the front door, you can receive a push or text notification when your kids get in from school. Motion sensors are also great for making sure the kids don’t go anywhere or get into anything they’re not supposed to while you’re out. Set up motion sensors in off limits rooms or areas so you can receive push alerts on your mobile phone when they detect movement.

Keep it Cool

A smart way to save money on your energy and make sure you don’t come home to a house that feels like the center of Dante’s Inferno is with the Honeywell Thermostat. With the Honeywell Thermostat you can remotely monitor and control your thermostat from anywhere with your mobile device and make sure the house is the right temp for when the kids get home or just make sure they’re not messing with it while you’re gone. In any case, it provides an efficient way to control your home’s temperate and save money.


Have the Power of Wi-Fi

For Back-to-School you want to make sure you’ve got the Wi-Fi power necessary to handle all the demands of kids working on projects, checking email and streaming movies and gaming (just because school’s in session doesn’t mean you’ve got to cut out all the fun activities). One great feature of D-Link Wi-Fi Routers is the ability to set schedules and curfews so when it’s bed time you can limit Wi-Fi access to the kid’s devices and even block certain websites to make sure they’re focusing on school stuff rather than Facebook.
