Connecting, Controlling and Securing My Home With D-Link Devices


No offense to my home, but it is just not the smartest home around.  If I want the lights to turn on, I have to flick a switch.  If someone enters my home while I’m away, what does my home do?  Nothing!  Clearly, my home needs to get smarter.

Can I Make My Home Smarter with D-Link Connected Home Devices?

If my home is going to survive in 2015, it clearly needs to get smarter.  I decided to try out three D-Link devices to see if they could give my home the intelligence boost it clearly needed.  I tested out the –

D-Link HD Pan & Tilt Wi-Fi Camera (DCS-5222L)

D-Link Wi-Fi Smart Plug (DSP-W110)

D-Link Wi-Fi Motion Sensor (DCH-S150)

Now I Wish I Was As Smart As My Home

The D-Link brain transplant for my home worked!  With the three devices in place, my home can do smart things like…

  • If someone walks into my garage, turn the lights and radio on in my house (hoping to scare them off) and turn the Wi-Fi Camera on to record.  In addition, keep me in the loop by sending text updates
  • Allow me to turn my coffee pot off…from 3,000 miles away
  • Play my favorite song the moment I walk in the door
  • Get a text when the cat jumps onto the couch, then pan the camera up to see him and then say to the cat via the camera’s speaker “Get off my new coach and learn to play piano and make YouTube videos!”
