D-Link, the worldwide leader in
manufacturing of broadband, networking and digital electronic technologies,
today announced an affordable and compact Wireless Security Camera that includes
a fully integrated web server to serve live streaming video to be viewed
anywhere in the world. The new Wireless D-Link Internet Camera seamlessly
connects to a wireless network and can be placed virtually anywhere including
nursery rooms, bookcases, entryways and small offices for off-site surveillance
of the home or office.
"The simplicity, affordability and flexibility of this compact wireless Internet
Camera make it a must for any consumer looking to monitor the home or office
while they are away," said Steven Joe, President and CEO of D-Link. "A low-cost
wireless camera is a natural extension to our award-winning Internet Security
Camera family and this camera with its range of features is an affordable
solution for the digital home user."
With the D-Link Wireless Internet Camera (DCS-900W), a user can access the
camera from any location with a web browser to view real-time streaming video at
320 x 240 pixel resolution at up to 20 frames a second. The D-Link Internet
camera includes a powerful built-in fully integrated web-server that contains
its own IP address to act as an independent device. A free Dynamic Domain Name
Service (DDNS) utility built in the camera's web server allows the user to
create an easy-to-remember personal web address (e.g. http://me.atmycamera.com)
at which the camera's live image can be conveniently found on the Internet.
Unlike similar cameras that require a paid DDNS subscription service, the
DCS-900W includes everything needed to stream video outside the home or office
network, for free.
The DCS-900W provides multiple video delivery options allowing video to be
captured and sent to an email address or recorded to a hard drive while
simultaneously broadcasting over the Internet. With an easy-to-use web-based
user interface, the D-Link DCS-900W Internet Camera can be set up and configured
in a matter of minutes to remotely monitor any site. The unit can be set to
record a video feed with date and time stamp to create an archived record for
later viewing. The D-Link Camera includes password protected management software
that allows users to monitor up to four cameras at one time, providing a large
amount of coverage for the home or office. Advanced video compression allows the
recording of up to eight hours of video onto just 500MB of hard drive space.
The D-Link DCS-900W is IEEE 802.11b standard and compatible with both 802.11b
and 802.11g wireless networking technologies. Advanced wireless security
features including SSID filtering and 64/128 bit WEP encryption ensure the
security of the wireless transmissions.
Price and Availability
The D-Link DCS-900W Internet Camera will be available in January 2004 through
authorized retail, reseller and distribution partners at a Manufacturer's
Suggested Price MSRP of $169 and an Estimated Street Price ESP of $149. The
D-Link DCS-900 comes with a One Year Warranty and absolutely FREE 24/7 Technical
Support including firmware updates.
