D-Link Extends Connected Home Offerings with Wi-Fi Motion Sensor and New App for Managing Devices

D-Link today announced it is now shipping a new Wi-Fi Motion Sensor, the company’s latest addition to its line of Connected Home products designed to make one’s home smarter and safer. The compact motion sensor plugs into an open power outlet and alerts users of activity at home with a push or text notification as soon as it detects motion. Whether you want to know when the kids get in from school, make sure the puppy goes outside during the day, or receive an alert when the garage door opens, the Wi-Fi Motion sensor makes it simple to stay aware of what’s happening at home.

D-Link today also announced the intuitive mydlink Home mobile app for iOS® and Android smartphones and tablets, providing instant control over D-Link® smart devices from anywhere, anytime. In addition to transforming a mobile device into a remote control for D-Link smart products, the free mobile app can also be used to pair D-Link smart devices together to truly automate a home. For example, easily pair a D-Link Smart Plug with a Wi-Fi Motion Sensor to make home electronics immediately react to motion, such as setting an action for the lights to turn on as you walk in the front door, another for a fan to keep the living room cool while you’re there, and another for music to play when you step on the treadmill.

“D-Link’s Wi-Fi Motion Sensor, along with Wi-Fi Smart Plugs and Wi-Fi Cameras, provide a complete Connected Home Solution that gives our customers the peace of mind that comes from knowing their home – and everything in it – is safe and sound while they’re away, ” said Daniel Kelley, vice president of marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. “The ability to control devices remotely, automate electronics, and get a quick view of what’s happening at home from virtually anywhere puts our customers in the driver’s seat of their home security solutions.”

D-Link’s Connected Home solutions truly simplify home automation and security. The mydlink Home app features an intuitive design that is easy to navigate and fun to use, and the Wi-Fi Motion Sensor uses a simple one-button installation – simply press the WPS button on the Motion Sensor and on the existing router to connect to a home network in minutes.

“Keeping your home safe and secure shouldn’t be difficult, nor should it cost an arm and a leg,” said Kelley. “We’re excited to offer our customers a flexible, full-featured DIY home security solution that can be set up quickly and doesn’t require any monthly fees or subscriptions.”

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.
Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.
