D-Link says its new home security camera works over 4G LTE
The DCS-1820LH LTE Full HD Indoor/Outdoor Camera is one of the latest devices from networking and home security manufacturer D-Link. Available in the second quarter of the year, the DCS-1820LH will sell for $300 (roughly £220 and AU$385 converted).
This model is similar to the D-Link DCH-212KT Wire-free Full HD Indoor/Outdoor Camera Kit, also announced today, with one key exception: 4G LTE, like your phone's data connection. That means you should be able to take this 1080p HD live-streaming camera beyond the boundaries of a typical Wi-Fi network (or simply use LTE as a backup if your Wi-Fi regularly cuts in and out).
In addition to its mobile data integration, the DCS-1820LH is an indoor/outdoor rechargeable-battery-powered security camera. It features two-way talk, night vision and local and cloud storage. Its local storage comes courtesy of an integrated microSD card slot. Free 14-day, 10GB cloud storage is available, as well as an optional subscription service for a monthly fee.
