D-Link’s 180-degree home surveillance camera with HomeKit support hits Apple.com

D-Link’s Omna 180 Cam HD Camera is now available to purchase from Apple.com, priced at $200. Unveiled at CES 2017 last month, D-Link’s new accessory for the connected home is certified for Apple’s HomeKit platform, meaning users can control it in the stock Home app on their iPhone or iPad.

Omna 180 Cam HD Camera files as the world’s first home surveillance accessory that comes with native HomeKit video integration.

The smart home device features a 180-degree wide angle lens capable of capturing an entire room, Full HD 1080p video resolution, two-way audio, night vision up to 16 feet (five meters), even in complete darkness, and a microSD card slot.

As soon as the sleek cylindrical device detects motion, it sends a push notification with a snapshot of what’s happening in your home and real-time video appearing on your Lock screen. If it detects motion, the accessory can optionally begin capturing video to a microSDXC card up to 128GB.

Unlike similar home surveillance products from other vendors, there are no subscription costs attached to the device. D-Link has said that Omna 180 Cam HD Camera will hit Apple’s retail stores globally later in February.

As mentioned, the device is HomeKit-enabled and can be controlled directly in the Home app on iPhone or iPad and used in conjunction with HomeKit scenes. For example, you could set up a scene to turn on lights when your Omna detects motion.

D-Link provides a dedicated app for more control and advanced settings.
