Following last month’s release of its new Wi-Fi Smart Plug, D-Link is now expanding its line of home automation devices with the new Wi-Fi Motion Sensor. Like the Wi-Fi Smart Plug, the sensor is designed to make your home smarter and safer and will automatically fire off a push or text notification to you as soon as it detects motion.
D-Link’s new Wi-Fi Motion Sensor can be used to know when the kids get home, when the dog goes outside or even if the garage door is opened, for example, but the functionality goes even deeper when paired with D-Link’s other Connected Home products and the new mydlink Home mobile app for iOS and Android.
Along with customization features for your smart home devices, the app also allows for various D-Link Connected Home products to work in conjunction with one another: “For example, easily pair a D-Link Smart Plug with a Wi-Fi Motion Sensor to make home electronics immediately react to motion, such as setting an action for the lights to turn on as you walk in the front door, another for a fan to keep the living room cool while you’re there, and another for music to play when you step on the treadmill.”
D-Link is also announcing the new AC1900 Wi-Fi Router (DIR-880L) today as well. It features 11AC Wi-Fi dual band connectivity with speeds of up to “1300Mbps on the 5GHz band and 600Mbps on the 2.4GHz band.” D-Link says this is the “company’s highest end wireless router to-date.” It is available direct from D-Link at $189.99.
