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.”

Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE Standard 802.11n specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, buildings materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range.
As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

DevOps is gaining traction in the federal government – and for good reasons. Heightened user expectations are pushing IT organizations to accelerate application development and support more innovation. At the same time, budgetary constraints require that agencies find ways to decrease the cost of developing, maintaining, and running applications. IT now faces a daunting task: do more and react faster than ever before – all with fewer resources.

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
