D-Link announces support for Apple HomeKit
New D-Link Wi-Fi camera to support Apple’s smart home framework & new home app in iOS 10
D-Link has announced the development of a new Wi-Fi camera that will support Apple HomeKit and the new Home app in iOS 10 later this year, making the networking company one of the latest major brands to support Apple’s smart home framework.
D-Link offers a range of Wi-Fi cameras as part of its Connected Home series with the new D-Link Wi-Fi camera 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.
“In D-Link, we've 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 Harrison Albert, regional director at D-Link Middle East & Africa.
“We’ve been working hard with Apple to help make a unique connected home experience that meets the real needs of users. Now, through the new HomeKit-enabled D-Link camera and Apple’s new Home app in iOS 10, we are excited that families around the world will have an easy and secure way to monitor their homes.”
Furthermore, 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.
The new 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.
