d-link-hd-180-degree-wi-fi-cameraDon’t look now, but yet another new tech offering has just been announced at the 2017 CES in Las Vegas, Nevada. This time it’s an expansion of D-Link’s Connected Home Ecosystem for simple DIY home security, which falls under the smart home category for sites like Best Buy. D-Link is known as a global leader in connectivity technology for both home and business environments, and their award-winning pedigree makes them a force to be reckoned with in the broad world of security network solutions.

D-Link’s latest achievement is 2 high performance security cameras that are fully WI-FI compatible and offer a number of extremely useful features, including the freely available mydlink Home App, with which you can accomplish several security related tasks. For instance, there’s an option for free local recording of captured footage on a Micro SD card, as well as both free & subscription based cloud storage, along with the ability to review footage captured throughout the day via a super convenient time lapse recap feature.

Read on for further details concerning the D-Link Full HD 180-Degree Outdoor Wi-Fi Camera (DCS-8700LH) & the HD 180 Degree Wi-Fi Camera (DCS-8100LH) if you’re ready to take your own home (or business) security system to the next level!


D-Link Full HD 180° Outdoor Wi-Fi Cam (DCS-8700LH)

First up is the DCS-8700LH model, which is the outdoor version of D-Link’s security camera. Of course, it must be noted that both of the cameras announced by D-Link at CES 2017 share a number of the same features, such as advanced video monitoring capabilities and High Definition video recording, but only the 8700 model is meant for outdoor use. As such, it features enhanced night vision capabilities over the 8100 model (a 25 foot total range as opposed to 16 feet). Even so, both models offer wide angle viewing (at 180 degrees) and are fully compatible with other devices from D-Link’s Connected Home Series of products. Moreover, you can rest easy knowing that the incredible combination of D-Link’s night vision technology & HD resolution is sure to capture amazing detail, even on the darkest of nights.

Key Specs for the DCS-8700LH Include:

  • 180 Degree Field of Vision
  • HD 1080p Resolution
  • 2-Way Audio
  • Sound & Motion Detection
  • 25 Feet Night Vision


D-Link HD 180 Degree Wi-Fi Camera (DCS-8100LH)

The DCS-8100LH half of D-Link’s excellent security camera duo not only differs from the 8700 model in its night vision range (16 feet), but also in its overall resolution. Whereas the 8700 camera offers the clarity of 1080p, the 8100 model offers a still impressive 720p of resolution. Of course, at this resolution, the 8100 model still stands out as a High Definition security camera, and it even comes complete with sound & motion detection and an excellent 2-way audio system. In fact, both models do. These features will certainly come in handy should it ever become necessary to communicate with someone you just happen to be recording!

Key Specs for the DCS-8100LH Include:

  • 180 Degree Field of Vision
  • HD 720p Resolution
  • 2-Way Audio
  • Sound & Motion Detection
