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
“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.”

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.
