Stay calm this festive season with D-Link

It’s that time of year again. The chestnuts are roasting and the wine is mulling. Now it’s time to prepare for the masses joining you over the holiday period and get started on that Christmas feast for 20…

We’ve come up with a few handy hints to help make this festive season stress free.

1. Party on with peace of mind

In the whirlwind of parties, social gatherings and holidays, homes are frequently left unattended during the festive period, and don’t burglars know it! For example Halifax reports that over 50 burglaries take place every day in the UK over the Christmas period. We’re definitely not suggesting that you cut back on the parties but with the right equipment you can help keep your home safe and secure when you’re not there.
Our mydlink Home Monitor 360 gives you the gift of peace of mind. Setup is quick and easy and it connects to your home Wi-Fi. With motorised pan/tilt and digital zoom as well as night mode which allows you to see clearly in the dark, the Monitor 360 means you’ll be able to keep an eye on the comings and goings at your home. The built in motion sensor means you can get notifications to your phone when movement is detected so you’ll always be one step ahead. All this with no installation costs or ongoing subscription fees

After all, there’s only one sneaky person who should be entering your home without your knowledge at this time of year...

2. Make Christmas magical

Be the hostess with the mostess this Christmas, and be ready and raring when your guests arrive. The mydlink Home Wi-Fi Motion Sensor can alert you when your guests come through the door and you (or your little helpers) can greet visitors with a mince pie and a mulled wine. They won’t know how you do it!

3. When you can't be there

If work is taking you away from home this festive season, don’t miss a moment with mydlink Home Monitor HD.

There’s nothing more exciting to the little ones than the sound of sleigh bells on Christmas Eve, have some festive family fun with your children and watch over them with the mydlink Home Monitor HD, with eyes and ears peeled for St. Nick and his reindeer friends…don’t let them stay up too late though, remember Santa’s very camera shy

4. Walk into Winter Wonderland

Make this Christmas the cosiest yet and give your house a festive glow. Connect your Christmas tree lights to a Smart Plug so you can light up your tree before you even get home via the mydlink Home app. You can even pair it with your motion sensor to trigger the lights when someone enters the house - a Christmassy welcome in from the cold.

5. Rock 'n' roll Christmas

Keep everyone rocking around the Christmas tree with Music Everywhere. Just plug in your old hi-fi speakers and stream your music through your Smartphone or tablet. Whether you’re DJing at your Christmas party or providing some festive tunes to accompany your Christmas lunch, Music Everywhere has got you covered.

6. Festive fun with your furry friends

It’s a Christmas miracle, Father Christmas hasn’t been yet but the cookies you left out for him are gone! Although that four-legged friend of yours is looking pretty pleased with himself. Catch your pets in the act with the EyeOn Pet Monitor. Or, you could just use it to snap in fun and festive costumes and share post it on the Internet…your call!

7. The most precious gift of all...

Keep watch over your most precious gift with our secure EyeOn Baby Monitor (DCS-825L). Connect to the monitor wirelessly at home or through the Internet when you are at work, so you can check on your infant no matter where you are via your smartphone or tablet. With sound and motion detection, two-way audio, and the ability to take snapshots and videos, not only will you not miss a moment, your family and loved ones don’t have to either.

8. Keep connected on the move

Spread the gift of Wi-Fi on the go this festive season with the 4G LTE Mobile Wi- Fi Hotspot 150 Mbps (DWR-932) and a data enabled SIM. Not only can you stay connected while you’re away but you can also share your connectivity with those around you. Who said you can’t buy popularity?!

9. Magic moments to be shared

Photographs should be for life, not just for Christmas. We all have our favourites/you know the ones, Uncle Vernon dressed as Rudolph, Cousin Javier nesting in the Christmas tree after one too many glasses of wine. Keep those festive memories safe and all together with the DNS-320L ShareCenter™ 2-Bay Cloud Network Storage Enclosure.

10. ‘Tis the season for seamless streaming

Keep the whole family happy this Christmas... The masses have been fed, glasses have been raised and the presents have all been opened , so naturally you now can’t move for tablets, smartphones and any of the other latest and greatest wireless gadgets that Santa’s elves have generously provided. Leave no man behind with slow Wi-Fi.
