The weather just keeps getting warmer, which probably means that you’re leaving a lot more windows and sliding glass doors open. Thieves and predators like that.

If you want to take advantage of Mother Nature’s summertime breezes, there are some trade-offs. However, you can keep an eye on your home and property by installing a few simple security cameras. D-Link just announced four new camera options into its security lineup.

The Pan & Tilt Day/Night Network Camera (DCS-5020L), the Outdoor HD Wireless Day/Night Network Camera (DCS-2332L), the Day/Night Cloud Camera 1150 (DCS-933L), and the Cloud Camera 1050 (DCS-931L) are all new entries into the company’s line of mydlink-enabled Cloud Cameras.

New enhancements across the line include WiFi extender features, better audio and motion detection, a built-in CPU and web server, and a built-in microphone and speaker (select models). Also, each one works with D-Link’s mydlink portal for a live peek via a PC, notebook, iPhone, iPad or Android device.

The Pan & Tilt Day/Night Network Camera (DCS-5020L) has sound detection and WiFi extender features for easier placement. Other highlights include ultra-smooth pan and tilt and a wide 66-degree horizontal field of view, as well as 4x digital zoom, integrated motion-sensing and night-vision technology, and video up to 30 frames per second (fps).

The most expensive option in the new lineup is the Outdoor HD Wireless Day/Night Network Camera (DCS-2332L). It has IP-65 certified weatherproof casing that can withstand all-season outdoor use. It can capture 720p HD video and has a passive infrared (PIR) sensor for motion detection and email alerts. Other features include 10x digital zoom, night vision up to 26 feet, and a microSD/SDHC slot.

Designed for indoor use, the Cloud Camera 1150 (DCS-933L) and Cloud Camera 1050 (DCS-931L) both have a WiFi extender for easy placement. Other features include H.264 enhanced video compression and a built-in microSD card slot. The 1150 also has night vision up to 16 feet.

“The new line of Cloud Cameras give consumers and small business owners a combination of pro-level features and performance at a fraction of the cost of professionally installed security systems,” said Ken Loyd, D-Link’s director consumer product marketing. “Each of the new models add enhanced monitoring features and remote control capabilities that make it easier than ever to integrate a complete surveillance solution at home or the office.”

The DCS-5020L, DCS-2332L, DCS-933L and DCS-931L are all available now. D-Link has priced the cameras at $119.99, $269.99, $99.99 and $69.99, respectively.
