D-Link releases a "True FHD" Wi-Fi security camera with AI person detection, weatherproofing and IPv6 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.
