D-Link has announced that some of its newer devices will now nicely integrate with Google Assistant come the end of January 2018. In particular, the mydlink DCS-8000LH HD Mini Wi-Fi Camera, DCS-8100LH HD Wi-Fi Camera, DSP-W115 Wi-Fi Smart Plug, and DSP-W245 mydlink Wi-Fi Power Strip will work with Google’s AI solution.

The integration will allow users to ask the Google Assistant to show their camera’s live view on a television or display when connected to a Google Chromecast device. The mydlink Wi-Fi Smart Plug and Wi-Fi Power Strip can also be turned on and off with the Google Assistant.

“D-Link’s new product integrations with the Google Assistant provide users the ability to control their mydlink Cameras and mydlink Smart Plugs with the power of their own voice. We plan to continue expanding the range of Google Assistant-compatible products to provide more home automation possibilities for smart homes.”Graeme Reardon, Managing Director, D-Link ANZ

To configure the devices, owners of these mydlink Cameras and mydlink Smart Plugs need
simply go into the settings menu of their Google Home app or the Google Assistant on their phone, select Home control and follow the instructions to link their mydlink account to the Google Assistant.

He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Would be great if they added this to the DCS-825L baby camera, but they haven’t updated their app in ages (and it is so bad) so not getting my hopes up.
