The compact motion sensor plugs into an open power outlet and alerts users of activity at home with a push or text notification as soon as it detects motion. Whether you want to know when the kids get in from school, make sure the puppy goes outside during the day, or receive an alert when the garage door opens, the Wi-Fi Motion sensor makes it simple to stay aware of what’s happening at home.
The mydlink Home mobile app provides nstant control over D-Link smart devices from anywhere, anytime. In addition to transforming a mobile device into a remote control for D-Link smart products, the free mobile app can also be used to pair D-Link smart devices together to automate a home.
For example, you can pair a D-Link Smart Plug with a Wi-Fi Motion Sensor to make home electronics immediately react to motion, such as setting an action for the lights to turn on as you walk in the front door, another for a fan to keep the living room cool while you’re there, and another for music to play when you step on the treadmill. The mydlink Home app is a free download at the Apple App Store.
The mydlink Home app features an intuitive design, and the Wi-Fi Motion Sensor uses a simple one-button installation. Simply press the WPS button on the Motion Sensor and on the existing router to connect to a home network in minutes.
