D-Link has announced the DCS-8302LH Full HD Outdoor Wi-Fi Camera. Despite one part of its name, the OEM asserts it is sleek and sophisticated to have inside the house as well. It also packs features such as IR for night vision, AI to help avoid unnecessary user alerts and "next-gen" IPv6/WPA3 support.

D-Link has launched a new entrant into the IP security camera ring. This DCS-8302LH Full HD Outdoor Wi-Fi Camera is being pitched at homes as well as smaller offices or businesses. The OEM claims that it can fit in anywhere within these settings thanks to its built-in rotating stand, although it does also support mounting with screws or ties outside.

The DCS-8302LH has a "true" full-HD resolution at 30 frames per second and a 135-degree field of view. It is also described as weather-resistant, although no IP or other ratings are mentioned. Operating parameters of -25 to about 45°C (-13 to 113°F) are mentioned, however. The camera is also equipped with infra-red (IR) with a coverage of up to 5 meters for night-time functioning.

D-Link also supplies a free app so that users can control the Outdoor Wi-Fi Camera and view its surveillance and recordings (which can be stored to a microSD card, a cloud, or a NAS thanks to ONVIF-Profile S support). These apps can sent inappropriate alerts in profusion: therefore, this new model has AI person-detection that may refine them to important ones only.

The DCS-8302LH also features a 95 decibel (dB) speaker with an optional siren and on-board two-way audio with a mic. The new camera, which supports the newer WPA3 security for its Wi-Fi connectivity, is now available from retailers that stock D-Link, although no pricing has been mentioned thus far.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
