D-Link announce Alexa and Google Assistant enabled Smart Plug
1D-Link has unveiled the DSP-W115 Smart Plug, along with the new mydlink app, which enables home automation functions through integration with Smart home platforms Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
D-Link’s new DSP-W115 Smart Plug enables integration with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant adding the convenience of hands-free voice control of home appliances with popular Smart speakers including Amazon Echo and Google Home – it could be handy for sticking the coffee machine on in the morning, as part of a routine, for instance or maybe for turning the fairy lights on at Xmas. At the same time, IFTTT (If This Then That) integration and automation with compatible mydlink cameras extend the option to make homes more secure, giving users valuable peace of mind.
Commenting on the launch, Paul Routledge, D-Link UK and Ireland Country Manager said, “Over the past year we’ve seen consumers grow more comfortable with utilising smart home devices via Amazon Alexa and Google Home, and we anticipate seeing this accelerate throughout 2018. The new mydlink app opens up access to these services, ensuring that our customers can make full use of their capabilities, while remaining in control of their mydlink devices, through one simple interface.”
The revitalised mydlink app features shortcuts on the main screen allowing you to access devices quickly, whilethe new ‘One-Tap’ function allows multiple devices, alerts and automations to be enabled or disabled with just a tap. Not only does the mydlink app provide detailed statistical information about how much power each appliance is using, but it also sends customised notifications to a your mobile device, informing you when it switches a device on or off, when a pre-set power consumption limit is exceeded, or if a device has been automatically deactivated due to overheating.
The DSP-W115 Smart Plug is available on Amazon on pre-order for £29.99
