D-Link has started shipping a compact and affordable network webcam that allows users to remotely view live streaming video through the company's www.mydlink.com portal with multi-browser support and while on-the-go with an iPhone app.
The new D-Link® Wireless N Network Camera (DCS-930L) is 'mydlink-enabled' allowing it to be easily and securely viewed and managed via the mydlink portal, providing customers with an easier way to experience a connected, digital lifestyle. Other 'mydlink-enabled' cameras include the DCS-1100 ($179.99) and the DCS-1130 ($219.99) which were announced last year.
Unlike a traditional USB-connected webcam, the DCS-930L is a complete system with a built-in CPU and web server that transmits high quality video images for security and surveillance directly to the network without the need for a PC. Simple installation and an intuitive web-based interface offer easy integration with your wired or 802.11n Wi-Fi network. The DCS-930L also comes with D-ViewCam camera management software which includes recording and motion detection features for a complete and cost-effective home monitoring solution.
With the addition of an iPhone app, users can view a live feed from any of the “mydlink” family of cameras using the mydlink portal from their phones. For added convenience, users can view a live feed from the cameras using any 3G-enabled cell phone, PDA or any compatible 3GPP RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) mobile streaming capable device.
Due to the camera's small size and easy installation, users are offered a discreet and flexible way to check on their home, children or pets in real time from virtually anywhere with Internet access or within the customer's mobile network.
