Many see home automation as the next big thing in the consumer electronics space and D-Link is keen to plant a flag in the emerging connected smart home with its new mydlink Home range of smart devices. The line includes five modules aimed at letting homeowners control technology around the home using a smartphone or tablet, be it from the comfort of the sofa or when out and about.
The latest player in the Internet-to-your-TV world is the Boxee Box by D-Link. This set-top device is likely to put up a fair fight in the face of some big name competition including Apple TV
, Sony Internet TV
(armed with Google TV) and Logitech Revue
(also running Google TV).
D-link have provided a firmware upgrade to enable printer and hard drive sharing from the USB port on their Xtreme N family of routers. This new USB over TCP/IP technology is called SharePort, and is available for the DIR-628, DIR-655, DIR-825, DIR-855 and DGL-4500 models.
