Connect all of your gadgets at the same time and transform your home from a smarts-challenged one to a tech-savvy home. The D-Link Smart Home Kit helps strengthen the connectivity of your gadgets at home. The Wi-Fi in itself is a powerhouse with its tri-band technology, and the Cloud Camera helps keep your home secure.


The D-Link Smart Home Kit consists of three products each designed to help make browsing, streaming or gaming a breeze. The D-Link DIR-890L Wireless AC3200 Ultra Wi-Fi Router has a tri-band technology that helps deliver what is needed to power homes. It speeds up to 3.2 Gbps which makes it one powerful router perfect for homes with gaming aficionados.

The Cloud Camera 5000 of the D-Link Smart Home Kit helps you keep an eye on your loved ones when you are away. It has exceptional picture quality that you can access anywhere with the help of the mydlink Lite app.

Lastly, the D-Link Smart Home Kit includes the DSP-w215 Wi-Fi Smart Plug. This plug is not like any other plugs because it helps you turn your devices on or off with an app and even create a schedule based on your lifestyle. 

Pros and Cons 

The D-Link Smart Home Kit can solve your connectivity problems with the powerful hardware included in the kit. The three devices included in the kit are each designed to make connecting easier and hassle free.

The D-Link DIR-890L Wireless AC3200 Ultra Wi-Fi Router provides your entire home the coverage it needs, meaning you will not lose your connection within its specified range. You won’t even have to worry about the quality of the connection because of its Smart Beam Forming. This empowers the router to direct bandwidth to your device even as you move around different rooms in your home.

The Wi-Fi Smart Plug helps you keep track of your router and you can turn it on or off using the app. The plug even has a thermal sensor that will help prevent your router from overheating. Aside from that you can monitor how much energy your device is using through the app which can help you save money.

The Cloud Camera 5000 has amazing specs. With this device you can keep a watchful eye even when you are away it even has night vision technology and it even sends e-mail alerts when it senses any change within the camera’s environment.

The whole D-Link Smart Home Kit is very useful but is also very costly. The router alone will cost a few hundred dollars. That does not include the Cloud Camera and Wi-Fi Plug.

The Cloud Camera is still in need of a few tweaks. It is a bit on the expensive side but can be difficult to install especially for those who are not tech savvy. Another downside is that it may blast emails every minute due to the e-mail alert system if not properly configured.


For a home kit the D-Link Smart Home Kit is very powerful. It is a good investment especially if you have a tech-savvy family or you always have that need to stay connected wherever you are at home.
