Full HD coverage at 30 frames per second.

D-Link has released the DCS-2530L, a full HD (1080p) Wi-Fi camera with a 180-degree lens. This allows users to see more than traditional security cameras, which tend to have a 130-degree view. It also lets you use mydlink to connect to the camera and monitor an area remotely.

The camera's high-quality video and wide viewing angle is complemented by the 30 frames per second recording speed on the camera, making it easier for you to view and analyse videos.

Unlike the Nest home security cameras that launched this week, which upload to the cloud, the D-Link camera allows users to add storage for recording straight onto a microSDXC card, providing up to 128GB of storage. You can record on a schedule, continuously or when a detection system is triggered.

Through the mydlink lite app, you can also monitor your rooms from anywhere using an Android, iOS or Windows device.

The DCS-2530L has a built-in microphone which, on top of recording audio, works as a detection mechanism. The camera has motion detection so if something comes into its view, it will make you aware through push notifications. It can also see up to five metres in the dark, meaning the camera will potentially be able to spot something even when conditions are not optimal.

While the DCS-2530L is useful for seeing more in a room, it's designed for internal use and isn't going to be the best choice for external surveillance.

The DCS-2530L can be purchased from D-Link and other resellers for $299.95.
