D-Link A/NZ launches new home wireless surveillance kit

18 Feb 2019

D-Link A/NZ has launched the new Omna Wire-Free Indoor / Outdoor Surveillance Kit for around-the-clock, smart home monitoring. 

Bringing smart surveillance to all areas, the Wire-Free Full HD Indoor / Outdoor cameras and accompanying Wi-Fi Hub offer a number of new features. 

With significantly extended battery life due to lithium batteries, the ability to record locally or to the cloud, combined with a complimentary 12-month subscription to the mydlink Cloud recording service for up to 5 cameras.

“Our new Omna Wire-Free Surveillance Kit gives users complete flexibility to keep an eye on the things that matter most, both inside or outside of your home, no matter the weather,” says D-Link A/NZ managing director Graeme Reardon. 

“There are no wires to run, and with high-power, rechargeable batteries powering each weather and dust-resistant camera, you’ll never have to worry about running ugly network cabling throughout your home, or be restricted to installing cameras close to a power outlet again. 

“It also sports advanced features including Full HD 1080p video capture, combined with options to record footage to a locally connected microSD Card or USB Hard Drive, or to the mydlink™ cloud recording service, as well as crisp and clear two-way audio. In short Omna Wire-Free provides homes or businesses with an easy choice to step up to the next level of smart surveillance solutions.”

The Omna Wire-Free Surveillance Kit is a bundle consisting of two DCS-2800LH Wire-Free Cameras and a DCS-H100 Wi-Fi Hub.

The DCS-2800LH is a compact wireless network battery camera suitable for day-time and night-time, indoor or outdoor, environments. 

It features built-in night vision giving you clear images in complete darkness up to 7.5 metres away thanks to its clever, built-in infrared LED’s, advanced motion detection capabilities, as well as two-way audio so that you can converse clearly.

The kit also supports both Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant. 

Using the mydlink Skill for Alexa, you can view live feeds from an Omna Wire-Free camera on the screen of the Amazon Echo Show. 

Ask Alexa to ‘Show me the front door camera,’ or ‘Show me the backyard’, and anywhere else the Omna Wire-Free camera has been placed, which eliminates the need to navigate the mydlink app.

The cameras are designed to be compact so they can fit into any decor, no matter where you place them with the magnetic mounts provided for each camera, as well as a separate mounting arm.

It also comes with the free mydlink mobile app to install the devices, control your cameras, set up schedules or event triggers, view live or saved video footage in high definition, and be alerted to all your notifications.

The DCS-H100 Wi-Fi Hub has ports that allow you to record snapshots and video clips to a microSD card, external USB Hard Drive, or to the cloud via the mydlink Cloud Recording service. 

With a complimentary 12-month premium subscription, you can have automated storage of your video recordings to the mydlink Cloud service, and playback recordings in the cloud or download video clips to your mobile device.
