D-Link has unveiled its first HomeKit-enabled home security camera at CES 2017 this week. The new Omna 180 Cam HD is the first product in D-Link's forthcoming Omna family of HomeKit-enabled devices.


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.

Like other smart home security cameras, the Omna 180 Cam HD lets homeowners monitor their homes while they are away for extra peace of mind. One of its main competitors is Canary's All-in-One Home Security System and Camera, which also incorporates a built-in 90-plus-decibel siren and temperature/humidity/air quality monitoring.

D-Link said the Omna 180 Cam HD will be available in the first quarter of 2017. Pricing was not disclosed.

Would personally have preferred that to of been achieved using multiple lenses, rather than a single fisheye.

Finally. I have been waiting for it for the past 6 months. Features sound right. Hopefully, it will cost <$200

OK, but does it support RTSP or something so I can record it to my own server or a location of my choosing, without needing to rely on on-device storage or an Internet connection, much less storing it with a third party? That's what's lacking from a lot of otherwise nice-looking security cameras.

Where are the HomeKit outdoor security cams??

Hasn't there been a few that I've already been published on this website? I thought there was one yesterday with some flood lights that were HomeKit compatible. Perhaps I'm wrong.

I received my Omna 180 today and have been playing with it.

I can't see anywhere where you can store the recordings other than on the memory card.

The 180 degree lens is pretty awesome, it captures my entire lounge with both doors at either end in full view. Very impressed.

Here are a few pics.
