D-Link's CES introductions focused more on its vision of the "digital home" than on basic networking connectivity and storage.

D-Life

D-Link's vision of a place where "everything just works simply and effortlessly" for "a connected, digital lifestyle" is its new D-Life concept. D-Life is a combination of products and website (www.d-life.com) designed to bring networked products to folks who don't want to futz with the nasty business of configuring a typical networked product.

D-Life products

The site has you enter a id codes that come with the product into an account that you set up on the site. You're then registered and the products are supposedly ready to use. The website is also a vehicle for selling value-add services for those products, including minutes for what appears to be a VoIP cordless phone and storage for a "security camera".

You also, according to the D-Link release, will be able to connect to other D-Life users using "Internet phones, instant messaging and Internet voice mailbox" and remotely access the security camera feed.

D-Link didn't provide any information on the products other than the photo above, which looks like it includes a digital photo frame, powerline networking adapters, web/security camera, a small white box and cordless VoIP phone. I'll get more info when I make my stop at D-Link's booth on Tuesday.
