Dream of accessing and viewing your live Cloud Camera feeds on your Windows Phone? It's now reality with mydlink (www.mydlink.com) for Windows Phone, developed by D-Link. Enabling you to tune into the hardware remotely, the app also lets you manage Cloud routers from anywhere using either Wi-Fi or a data connection. Cloud Cameras and Routers by D-Link are part of the mydlink service. They help make lives easier for parents and homeowners with cameras and secure routers that are easy to set up.
The Windows Phone client is a well-designed solution from the popular service and hardware provider, with full support for H.264 video streaming with audio (depending on models). Aside from the expected features and functionality, what else is available in mydlink? You'll be able to save snapshots of the camera's video directly on the Windows Phone, which is always a bonus if there's something you wish to look at another time. The status of Cloud Camera and Routers are displayed for quick checks.
Some other cool features include toggling camera view modes between Night mode, Day mode and Automatic mode. It really is a perfect companion app for those who utilise said products from the company.
