Today, D-Link has introduced a new affordable mini HD Wi-Fi Camera, the DCS-8000LH, that features 720p video for under $60. While it may not blow you away from a technical perspective, the slim, unassuming design makes it a great buy for those looking to dabble in home security for the first time.

D-Link’s latest release is an excellent starter security camera for a number of reasons, including its built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and integrated smartphone apps. Head below for the full press release and more.

The DCS-8000LH comes in at under 3.7-inches tall with a small camera lens, all wrapped in a rather unassuming casing. This isn’t like Nest Cam or other popular surveillance devices on the market today. D-Link’s newest camera will fit right in with other smart home gear you might already own.

“The Mini HD Wi-Fi Camera provides crisp 720p video to help users keep an eye on their homes at all times. A built-in IR LED provides 16 feet of night vision in total darkness and automatic push alert notifications, so nothing gets missed. The camera’s ultra-compact and inconspicuous design makes it ideal to fit in with any decor.”

D-Link is offering its latest surveillance camera for $59.99, or $119.99 as a two-pack. That’s a fairly aggressive price given that this model has features like night vision, motion detection and a built-in speaker. As we mentioned earlier, this is a great buy for those looking to add entry-level surveillance to a home. D-Link has already launched the DCS-8000LH on its company store for purchase.
