Posted by at 1:38 pm on June 15, 2009

D-Link today began shipping a network camera that allows users to remotely monitor live streaming video through the company’s new www.mydlink.com portal.

The new D-Link Network Camera (DCS-1100) is ‘mydlink-enabled’, allowing it to be easily viewed and managed by the mydlink portal, providing customers with an easier way to experience a connected, digital lifestyle. A wireless 802.11n version, the DCS-1130, is expected to ship at end of this month.

Offering plug and play connectivity, the new D-Link network cameras feature easy installation and setup, mobile 3G and Web monitoring, 16x digital zoom, motion detection, integrated microphone and multiple profiles. The DCS-1100 connects to the home or small business network via a standard network cable, while the DCS-1130 connects using 802.11n Wi-Fi with WPS support.

With 3GPP mobile surveillance, users can view a live feed from the cameras using a 3G-enabled cell phone, PDA or any compatible RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) device. Users are offered a flexible and convenient way to remotely monitor their homes or offices in real time from anywhere within a customer’s mobile network by simply using a common 3GPP-compatible player on the mobile device.

“Our new network cameras offer a user experience unmatched in the industry.   By being ‘mydlink-enabled’ customers can quickly view and manage their cameras from Internet Explorer with Internet connectivity,” said AJ Wang, chief technology officer, D-Link. “Both cameras can still be configured through the traditional web graphical user interface (GUI) as with other D-Link network cameras for many of the advanced features.”

An industry first, mydlink-enabled products let users with high-speed Internet, a home network and a PC quickly and easily install and monitor compatible home networking devices. The mydlink portal is designed to take the work out of activation and management of devices by offering the following user experience:
