After several months of captivity, finally the first measures of lack of control are allowing us to return to taking the streets little by little, from walks to terraces, and the new reopening of shops. However, these exits, often extremely long, have made our home a vulnerable point.
Fortunately, there are more and more alternatives that we have to maintain security, such as the one just presented mydlink DCS 8000LHV2 WiFi camera, the first of a new generation of IP Cameras incorporating new improved detection functionality as well as video recording and control via the cloud.
Main features WiFi mydlink DCS 8000LHV2 camera

One of the most obvious advantages of this WiFi camera lies in its compact design, only 9 cm tall, which will allow us to place it discreetly in almost any place in our house, including the walls themselves, thanks to the inclusion of a small mounting bracket.
Although the main advantage undoubtedly lies in the security functions themselves, such as highest accuracy in detection and alerts. And is that while most devices focus on motion detection based on the differences between the frames of the image (causing a large number of false alarms due to lighting changes), now we can adjust a much more accurate detection and focused exclusively for the detection of people, movements or sounds (with adjustable sensitivity parameters).
We will also have faster and more detailed pop-up notifications, if the user has them activated on their mobile or tablet, they appear immediately even in screen lock mode, thus avoiding the user having to go to the mydlink application and allowing a faster response. Once the pop-up notification with the photo of the event has been received, it is possible to carry out two almost instantaneous actions by the user: call with a click to one or two pre-defined emergency numbers, and / or access the live view of the camera.
In addition, in the event that the camera has been disabled, it will also be possible to access the recording of the video in the cloud, automatically started and stored from the moment the first motion or sound detection occurs. Thus, these videos will also be available for download in the local memory of our devices.
As for its configuration, we find a very simple and fast process thanks to the wizard itself the free mydlink app, available for Android and iOS. We simply have to download and install this application on any smartphone or tablet and follow the step-by-step instructions. Although we can also activate the camera settings through Bluetooth connectivity.
Currently we can already find the mydlink WiFi camera available through the brand’s web store, and at a recommended starting price of 69.99 euros.
