D-Link Launches 180-Degree Full HD Ultra-Wide View Wi-Fi Camera
D-Link ANZ has launched its Full HD Ultra-Wide View Wi-Fi Camera (DCS-2630L), stating that the Wide Eye camera, its first 180-degree Wi-Fi camera, delivers the widest angle lens available on a consumer fixed camera.
Among the DCS-2630L’s features, it is decked out with HD video quality, two-way audio, sound and motion detection, a microSD card slot for local recording, and automatic day/night viewing, with D-Link stating it is “an ideal start to a DIY security solution for any home or small business”.
Providing wall-to-wall surveillance coverage, D-Link states the DCS-2630L is suited for large rooms and areas with multiple entry points. Employing de-warping technology, the 180-degree Wide Eye lens is able to take a fisheye view, transforming it into a more viewable video stream with less distortion.
Built-in night vision provides up to five metres of viewing in total darkness, while with two-way audio, users can respond to what they see and hear.
“Our new 180-degree Wide Eye camera provides customers with the ability to see an entire room from a single camera, all in glorious full-HD,” D-Link ANZ managing director Graeme Reardon commented.
“The fact that a single camera can now provide full wall-to-wall coverage is a huge benefit to consumers and small businesses, as many other competing solutions may require several cameras to see all the details within a room.”
When combined with the mydlink Camera Video Recorder (DNR-202L), users can simultaneously stream, record and playback up to four D-Link Wi-Fi cameras, with the recorder recording footage locally to an attached USB hard drive.
The mydlink Lite app allows the DCS-2630L to be accessed and managed from iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices.
