D-Link has announced an inexpensive cloud-connected network camera.
The entry-level DCS-930L Wireless N Network Camera is accessed via D-Link's mydlink portal and joins DCS-1100 and DCS-1130 models, which were announced last year.
The camera has a fixed focus 5.01 mm, F2.8 lens that feeds a VGA CMOS image sensor. MJPEG video formats include 20 fps @ 640x480, 30 fps at 320x240 and 30 fps at 160x120. Sound is provided via a built-in microphone.
Network connection is via built-in 10/100 Ethernet and 802.11b/g/n wireless. The camera feed is viewed by logging into the mydlink portal and doesn't require any router changes to open ports.
The camera also comes with camera management software (Windows and Mac OS) supporting up to 32 cameras with features including the ability to record directly from the camera to a local hard drive or NAS, trigger motion detection, set recording schedules and set e-mail alert notifications. Video can also be views by any iOS device or mobile device supporting 3GPP RTSP.
The DCS-930L will be available soon at street pricing around $100.
