Networking specialist D-Link is slowly but surely filling the market with these little gizmos that add value to your home WiFi network at an affordable price.

D-Link has waded into the smart plug market, taking on the DIY smart home with the new WiFi Smart Plug DSP-W215, which not only allows for remote control of a plugged in appliance, but monitoring of its power consumption. The adapter - along with its companion apps for iOS and Android - slots in-between a regular AC outlet and your appliance of choice, whether that be an air-conditioning unit, lamp, or a TV, and can even watch out for potential overheating.
D-Link has announced a new product that aims at parents who want to use tech to keep an eye on their baby. Any parent remembers the overwhelming desire to keep a close eye on a new baby or an older tot who has learned to climb out of bed. The catch is that all parents know the act of stepping in a room with a sleeping child has a 50/50 chance of waking the kid no matter how quiet you are.
In some homes and offices, it can be difficult or impossible to get a clear and consistent WiFi signal into all rooms and offices. That leaves some people resorting to using wired networking or power line networking. Another option is to use range extenders for a wireless network to boost signal strength.
D-Link's unusual little portable WiFi 11AC router and mobile charger has hit shelves, offering both an AC-adapter free to share a data connection with multiple devices, as well as keep a phone topped up.
