D-link Cloud Router and Surveillance Camera Giveaway | 2012 Back to School Bash #wingiveaways

by Marcy on August 1, 2012 · 175 comments

If you are interested in computers and techie gadgets, chances are good you have heard of D-Link – a company that offers an innovative approach to home networking.

D-Link products are sold at several major retailers such as Best Buy, Sears, Amazon, Lowe’s, Staples, Target, Walmart OfficeMax and more. Be sure to check out D-Link online and on Facebook and Twitter to see all of the awesome products that they offer!

Now more than ever, multiple family members need access to a computer to manage school work and other responsibilities. Setting up a home computer network makes sense for many families. For parents of younger kids, you might want to keep tabs on their online activity while you are away from the home.  The D-Link Cloud Router 2000 (DIR-826L) lets you monitor your home network from anywhere on your iPhone, iPad or Android device using the free mydlink app. You can see websites that are being visited, block unwanted devices and receive automatic email alerts when unauthorized connections are attempted.

The Cloud Router 2000 also provides high-powered dual-band wireless connectivity–up to 600 Mbps–for great HD video performance. Wirelessly access your favorite movies, music, and photos on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device from any connected USB drive. For gamers and HD movie fans, the Cloud Router 2000 has four Gigabit ports for blazing wired speeds.

If you have ever considered using a surveillance camera to keep tabs on your home, the D-Link DCS-930L mydlink-Enabled Wireless-N Network Camera is a discreet and flexible way to check on your home, children, or pets in real time–even on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. I can see this coming in handy if you have someone watching your kids after school, or if your kids are old enough to stay home for a few hours alone after school but you want to know what they are up to!

What I like about this camera is that it is easy to set up, and you don’t need a computer to use it! The DCS-930L is a complete system with a built-in CPU and Web server that transmits high quality video images for security and surveillance directly to the network without the need for a PC. Simple installation and an intuitive Web-based interface offer easy integration with your Ethernet or Wireless-N (802.11n) wireless network.

To set the camera up, simply connect the cables, plug in the camera, run the short installation wizard and setup is complete. To view what the camera is seeing, simply log on to mydlink.com, choose your device, and start viewing–there is no need to configure your router to open up ports or remember hard-to-memorize Internet addresses. The D-Link DCS-930L mydlink-Enabled Wireless-N Network Camera works with the mydlink iPhone and Android app for on the go viewing – nice and convenient!

1 lucky winner is going to receive both the D-Link Cloud Router 2000 (DIR-826L) and the D-Link DCS-930L mydlink-Enabled Wireless-N Network Camera to try for themselves!

I used to think it was my laptop until it was stolen in a break in. Now the only technology I have is a smartphone and it doesn’t let me print my copons. So want another computer but the idea of someone stealing it again is putting me off. I so want this for protection and surveilance.
