[German]Are you using D-Link products like the mydlink Baby Monitor or mydlink Home. Today, December 30, 2022, vendor D-Link will shut down certain cloud services. The aforementioned devices will then become electronic junk because their functionality will be lost. An example of why you should not buy and use products with cloud features.
D-Link has announced the facts in the article mydlink Home and mydlink Baby Monitor End of Service. On December 30, 2022, D-Link cloud services will be shut down for the following D-Link products, the manufacturer writes. For mydlink Home, the following products from D-Link are affected:
Support for DCS-935L and DCS-5010L will be discontinued in the mydlink Home app, but users of the mydlink Lite/mydlink+ app will not be affected. Likewise, support for DCH-Z510 will be discontinued in the mydlink Home app. However, users of the mydlink app are not affected. Of the mydlink baby cameras, the following models are affected by the cloud services shutdown:
Users of the mydlink Home and mydlink Baby Monitor apps will then no longer be able to log in via these apps after December 30, 2022. In addition, all services will no longer be available as they will be discontinued. This affects remote viewing, management and setup of all products connected to the mydlink Home and mydlink Baby Monitor apps and cloud services.
D-Link will also remove the apps from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store following the end of service. App updates will also no longer be available. The manufacturer recommends having the apps updated again, as the updated "compatible" apps" will still allow login to manage "other" Mydlink devices. "However, login to the Mydlink Home and Mydlink Baby Camera apps will no longer be possible," the manufacturer writes in this article's FAQ.
D-Link argues that, after all, the products are no longer in distribution and their support end date has been reached. Anyone who has purchased a product listed above within the last year can contact D-Link – the manufacturer then assumes an "erroneous sale" after the end of the sales period and will probably seek a goodwill settlement. However, the case once again shows that you should steer clear of all the IoT and home automation stuff from this and other manufacturers. Anyone affected by the deactivation?
