Starting At $99.99, Cameras Enable Remote Monitoring of Kids, Pets, Home or Office via Web by Logging into Computers with Internet Access
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., June 10, 2008 — D-Link, the end-to-end networking solutions provider for consumer and business, today announced it is now shipping two new cost-effective network cameras for remote monitoring of the home or small office, providing an all-in-one solution for creating a surveillance camera network over an existing wired or Wi-Fi network.
With easy network setup, The D-Link® Wireless G Network Camera (DCS-920) connects to a home or small business network — either wired or via Wi-Fi — to enable remote video viewing. With integrated Wi-Fi capability, the DCS-920 can be mounted in places that were previously inaccessible, such as ceiling and walls. The D-Link DCS-910 is an even more affordable, wired-only version, which connects to a home or office network using standard Ethernet network cables.
D-ViewCam™2.0 a free network monitoring software, is included with both cameras to enable the simultaneous viewing of up to 32 cameras with a wide range of remote control features. With their compact and sleek design, the new network cameras connect quickly and easily to an existing network, facilitating streaming high quality MJPEG video for viewing either locally or over the Internet.
“The D-Link DCS-900 series of network cameras, members of our SecuriCam™ product line, offer an ideal security solution for homes and small businesses on a budget because they provide high end surveillance features at a very affordable price,” said Joe Melfi, Technical Marketing Engineer, D-Link Systems, Inc. “What sets them apart from a traditional closed circuit camera system is the remote access feature that allows users to log into the IP cameras and view streaming video from any computer with a Web browser and Internet access.”
Both cameras can be accessed and controlled using any Java-enabled browser. They allow both taking snapshots and recording directly from the Web browser to a local hard drive. The cameras can be configured to detect motion, send email alerts when motion is triggered and record to a computer on the home network or attached storage devices for detailed video monitoring and playback. They represent an ideal solution to keep an eye on the kids, pets, vacation home, or office remotely by simply logging onto the camera using a Web browser from any computer with Internet access.
