D-Link ups home security game with industry-first Wi-Fi siren

25 Nov 15

D-Link ANZ has made additions to its Connected Home series with Wi-Fi siren, designed to add extra security, awareness and deterrence in people’s homes.

The company says the DCH-S220 Smart Wi-Fi Siren is an industry first.

The siren has been designed to work in conjunction with other D-Link compatible Connect Home devices, and when paired with a D-Link Smart Motion Sensor, it can generate an audible alarm, as well as provide notifications to a user’s tablet or smartphone.    

“Our new Smart Wi-Fi Siren means that you will never again miss an intruder entering your home, especially as we approach the key Christmas and New Year holiday period, when many homes are left unattended,” D-Link ANZ MD Graeme Reardon explains.

“Paired with a D-Link Smart Motion Sensor that detects any movement in your home, an unmissable warning blares from the siren, with configurable sounds and volume levels, and importantly you can also receive a notification to your tablet or smartphone, so that you can enjoy peace of mind and relax on your holiday, knowing that your home is safe and secure,” he says.

“As with all D-Link Smart Connected Home products, set up is easy,” Reardon says. “Simply plug the Smart Wi-Fi Siren into an existing power point in the most convenient spot in your home for maximum effectiveness, press the WPS button on the Siren and your existing home router, and you’re done.

“No extra monitoring fees. No extra wiring. Simple.”

The siren features six different alarm sounds, adjustable volume up to 100 decibels and a compact AC-powered wall plug design that requires no additional power cables.

D-Link's Smart Connected Home solutions are designed to simplify home automation and security with the mydlink Home app. The app, available on both Android and iOS, allows users to control, view and manage all their D-Link Smart Connected Home devices, and set up rules to have them talk to each other.
