Increased Safety and peace of mind

With child safety unanimously at the forefront of parents’ minds, technology can play a vital role in maintaining a secure home for your loved ones. The HD 180 Panoramic Camera (DCS-960L) allows parents to keep an eye on their kids, with a single stand alone camera.

Boasting the title of the world’s first 180-degree wirelessAC Wide Eye camera, it offers home security that captures your whole room in 720p, enabling you to see more of your home at a glance.

Never miss an important moment

No parent wants to miss key milestones in their child’s life, but for parents who have busy schedules, this is sometimes inevitable. Worried you might miss your child’s first steps whilst at work? Or simply want a live update of what is happening whilst you’re out? The DCS-960L has the ability to not only live stream straight to your smart phone, but also record so you can capture every significant moment.

The handy Smart Home HD Starter Kit (DCH-100KT) includes a smart plug (DSP- W125), a Wi-Fi Motion Sensor (DCH- 2150) and a Monitor HD (DCS-935L).

Although complete peace of mind when you’re away from your children is difficult to achieve, the motion sensor in this kit makes it easier. It sends push notifications to your phone that will alert you whenever motion is detected, enabling you to know when a door is opened or closed, and to monitor off-limit areas like medicine cabinets.

Additionally, monitor HD allows you to see your home in HD 720p- seeing everything in detail, even when zoomed in, so you can always relax about what is happening at home.

When you’re a parent, every day is a busy one and every second of the day counts. With the smart plug in this kit you can turn your devices on and off from your mydlink App, saving you countless trips back home when you forget to turn off any devices!

Keep your children protected online

Whilst the internet provides a range of advantages to children’s lives and acts as an essential resource to aid modern learning, it is important to not forget the dangers that it exposes children to. The EXO AC1750 Wi-Fi-Router (DIR-869) helps you to combat these issues as it features a number of parental controls that enable you to easily schedule an
‘internet curfew’ in your home, block/allow specific websites and/or devices, and monitor internet activity. These parental controls can be managed from your smart phone for maximum convenience.

Ultimately, it is evident that technology can make parenting a more pleasant experience, and with many of D-Link’s products being designed with the security of the home in mind, you can be assured that your most precious possessions and family members are protected, whilst you stay connected from wherever you may be.
