D-Link's new smart security camera will tilt and rotate to target intruders

For a decent price, too

D-Link launches new 360 smart cam

D-Link is back with another smart security camera, which has just launched in the UK.

The Mydlink HD Pan and Tilt Wi-Fi Camera, to give it its full name, will use its titular movements to hone in on any intruders it detects and follow them around. The camera has a 360-degree movement with panoramic capture, letting you hone in on select points, as well as sound and motion detection that will trigger video recording and send you push notifications.

Video is captured at 720p HD quality, and there's night vision the company promises will give you up to 5 meters of visibility when the sun goes down. Those aren't market-leading specs by any stretch, but for the price of £112.99 it's a decent offering.

You can use a microSD card for storing video, or alternatively use D-Link's cloud service, which starts on a free tier but will incur a monthly cost if you need to pump up the storage.

Two-way audio and integration with Google Assistant, Alexa, IFTTT, and D-Link's other smart home devices round out the list of features. Though you can simply place the camera on a surface, it also comes with a mounting kit should you want attach it to a wall or ceiling.

All told, there's nothing here you won't find on other smart cameras, but the price is good and the range of motion is something you won't get on many others - so this could be a good fit for certain home setups. It's available to buy now on Amazon or on D-Link's website.

And if you're in the UK and on the hunt for a new security cam, the Blink XT2 has also just rolled out.
