Apple Begins Selling D-Link's HomeKit-Enabled 'Omna' HD Camera With 180º Lens

D-Link today announced that its new Omna 180 Cam HD camera, unveiled at CES 2017 last month, is now available to purchase at Apple.com for $199.95.


The cylindrical Omna 180 Cam HD features a 1080p camera with a 180-degree field of view, a built-in microphone and speaker with two-way audio, infrared night vision up to 16 feet, and motion detection with the option to record motion-triggered video clips directly to a microSDXC card up to 128GB with no subscription costs.

HomeKit support enables users to control the Omna 180 Cam HD with an iPhone or iPad through Apple's Home app on iOS 10. When the camera detects motion, users can receive Lock screen notifications to get a snapshot of what's happening in their homes. The camera can also trigger Scenes with other HomeKit products.

D-Link said the Omna 180 Cam HD camera will also be available to purchase at Apple retail stores around the world later this month.

Sounds like a great uncle.

I'm also looking for an outside camera so I'll give that doorbell thing a look see. Thanks.

Yes, and was a good dad. His youngest was still in high school. He didn't get to use the thing very long, but it seemed good. He was very platform agnostic, switching between phones depending on the day (iOS, Android, Windows Phone) and had Windows and Mac machines. So I always heard from him a good, well rounded opinion—and most of the time, especially in the last several years, he tended towards Apple stuff. Especially for tablets and watches. He would have made a good tech blogger, actually, but he was always so busy hanging out with his boys that he never tried. My dad and I stopped speaking over a year ago, so he had slowly become more of a father figure to me. IDK why I'm talking about this on here, but I think of him all the time, and that post reminded me of one of the last things we spoke about.

Although expensive, and they serve a dual purpose... Look into Ring Camera's. As they release new products, they have the Homekit Chip in them and will be announcing the capability hopefully Q1 2017.

Can see the camera on my watch too.
[doublepost=1487249940][/doublepost]More observations.

Yes it records onto a memory card. However, what happens if I get burgled and they take the camera ?

I loose the footage from the camera. ?

At the moment I get a motion sensing alert when I'm in the house. I can't see any obvious setting that turns that off until I've left home.
[doublepost=1487247569][/doublepost]ok, so the answer from D-Link is that Motion Detection is either on or off. No means of customising that. So my phone beeps everytime there is movement in the lounge. Maybe this will get improved on in an update?

Ok next problem.

I turn off wifi on my iPhone 7 and switch back to 4g.

I can control my other homekit devices ok, but the Omna has no response on the home app, and in the omna app there is no image. ?????
[doublepost=1487248556][/doublepost]Update: Rebooted the ATV4, and now it's all working on 4g :)

Can you elaborate on this process? I can't seem to duplicate these instructions and create this on/off scene. Has anyone else been successful?

Thanks



You can't, I did mention this earlier.

So it's not an outdoor camera?

Sure it is, until it rains or the sprinklers hit it.
