D-Link, a renowned router and smart home manufacturer, has announced a smart plug that enables home automation functions through integration with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.
DSP-W115 Smart Plug allows you to turn appliances on and off from a tablet or a smartphone, schedule appliances to automatically turn on and off based on date and time, and set up smart home automation with compatible mydlink devices and IFTTT. The device, which connects to a home’s existing WiFi network, also pushes notification alerts when appliances are turned on or off.
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.”
Meanwhile, the mydlink app now sports an updated, more user-friendly interface with shortcuts on the main screen that allows you to access devices quickly and more conveniently.
