Meet the smart light switch that can also protect your home
So we haven't liked a lot of D-Link's smart home products in the past.
But this [UNKNOWN] camera is actually kind of cool.
So the basic gist is that it can control two different light switches, so the top panel will control one light and the bottom will To control another.
It also has a built in 1080p 130 degree field of view camera which is really unique for a light switch but pretty cool.
I mean you can install pretty much anywhere in your house where you have an existing one or two gang light switch and then if it's installed in an optimal spot to check out for intruders or someone else that you don't want in your house It can be a security device as well.
It picks up on motion sign on it has an if channel.
And it does all that really well.
The only thing I experienced that wasn't awesome was a couple of phantom motion alerts.
But at 250 bucks it's definitely expensive.
So if you're just looking for a security camera just spend two hundred bucks on.
An [UNKNOWN] cam or some other live, streaming camera.
But, if you are looking for a light switch, I'd actually take a look at [UNKNOWN] camera.
