D-Link announced this week the development of a new Wi-Fi camera that will support Apple HomeKit later this year and the new Home app in iOS 10, making the global networking company one of the latest major brands to support Apple's smart home framework.
D-Link offers an extensive range of Wi-Fi cameras as part of its Connected Home series. D-Link's new Wi-Fi camera was built for HomeKit's camera category – one of two important new accessory types announced in the keynote speech at Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) event in San Francisco.
“D-Link has been building Wi-Fi cameras for more than 10 years and we understand the strategic importance of these cameras to your home's IoT ecosystem,” said William Brown, president, D-Link United States. “We have been working hard with Apple to help make a unique connected home experience that meets the real needs of users. We are excited that now through the new HomeKit-enabled D-Link camera and Apple's Home app in iOS 10, families around the world will have an easy and secure way to monitor their homes.”
The addition of Siri support with HomeKit allows cameras to be voice-enabled, giving families even more options to control and monitor their homes with faster results. Furthermore, the D-Link® Wi-Fi camera and integration with HomeKit is a powerful demonstration of how D-Link is enhancing the user experience and increasing the performance of its Connected Home portfolio.
