D-Link introduced three new Security Cameras this year at CES2017.
The budget priced DCS-8000LH is a self standing table top camera with 720p HD video, 120 degree field of view and 16 foot night vision.
The higher end DSC-8100LH is a compact Wi-Fi camera that can be desktop, wall or ceiling mounted and features two-way audio, 180 degree field of view, 720p, night vision and a micro SD card slot for on camera storage.
The best looking camera of the bunch is the D-Link DCS-8700LH and strangely enough this outdoor camera may not be released in the USA. The DSC-8700LH features 180 degree field of view, two- way audio, 1080p HD and a micro SD Card Slot. This camera would compete head to head with the Nest Outdoor cam and in my opinion come out on top because of the hidden power cable. The D-Link DCS-8700LH has a much better mounting base and cleaner install options than the Nest Outdoor Cam making it a clear winner. I’m not sure why D-Link is not releasing this camera in the USA but the other two cameras are scheduled to be available in Q2 of this year.
Let’s hope D-Link will release the DCS-8700LH in Canada if not in the US.
