    D-Link is adding three new items to its list of home automation products, including two new smartplugs (indoor and outdoor models) and a water sensor. The company is also updating their mydlink app with updated features to accommodate newer and more older products.
    First off, the slimly-designed Indoor Wi-Fi Smart Plug (DSP-W118) works with Google Assistant, Alexa and IFTTT, doesn’t require a hub, gets over-the-air upgrades and has controls for outlet power, scheduling and timer functions.

    The second smart plug, the Outdoor Wi-Fi Smart Plug (DSP-W320), has features similar to the new indoor model, but is encased in a IP44-rated weatherproof case for outdoor use and includes two plugs versus the indoor model’s single plug design.

    Both plugs have 125V/15A ratings and work with the mydlink app.
    Lastly, D-Link’s Battery Wi-Fi Water Sensor (DCH-S161) has a battery lifespan of up to 1.5 years, uses an internal 90 dB siren, has a sensor probe connected via a 1.8 m cable, and works with IFTTT.

    Changes to the mydlink app weren’t listed, however Oscar Reyes, VP of Marketing stated, “The new integrations provide a versatile set of options for those with mydlink compatible products. With the new enhancements, it will be easier for people to connect their smart home by adding automation and additional security.”

    D-Link’s Indoor Wi-Fi Smart Plug (DSP-W118) and Outdoor Wi-Fi Smart Plug (DSP-W320) are scheduled for a Q2 2019 release (pricing not announced), while the Wi-Fi Water Sensor (DCH-S161) will be out in Q1 2019 and priced at $49.99.
