The technology manufacturer provides two of its cloud services D link from Taiwan at the end of the year. This eliminates support for connected devices. These will have to contend with impairments. Older smart home devices from the provider are particularly affected.
D-Link: What to expect
If you use one or more smart home devices from D-Link, you may have problems at the end of the year. The Taiwanese manufacturer recently announced that the two cloud services it offers, mydlink Home and mydlink Baby Monitor, will no longer be supported after December 30, 2022. Other apps from the provider should continue to be operated as normal.
In particular, devices that rely on the connection to D-Link’s cloud systems should no longer function properly and to their full extent. The manufacturer’s notification also states “Users of the mydlink Home and mydlink Baby Monitor apps can no longer log in via these apps”. Remote viewing, remote management, and remote setup will also be discontinued for the affected products.
Which models are affected by the change
The manufacturer’s baby cameras are particularly affected, but also other recording devices, smart sockets and other accessories for the smart home. Below is the listing provided by D-Link:
- DCS-700L, DCS-800L, DCS-820L, DCS-825L, DCS-850L and DCS-855L
Smart home accessories:
DCS-935LHDCS-8200LH, DCS-5010L, DCS-5025L, DCS-935L, DSP-W110, DSP-W215, DSP-W115, DCH-S150, DCH-S160, DCH-G020, DCH-Z510, DCH-Z112, DCH-G022, DCH-Z122, DCH-Z110, DCH-S220, DCH-Z120 and DCH-Z310
According to D-Link, the reason for the step is security concerns in terms of support for older devices. From now on, the company would like to concentrate on the development of products and solutions that offer the maximum possible security for the customer. The routers from six different providers are already at risk from malicious code and we’ll tell you what you can do about it.
