CES 2017: First Apple HomeKit enabled security camera makes its debut

06 January 2017 3

D-Link’s first Apple HomeKit-enabled security camera made its debut at CES 2017 this week. The new Omna 180 Cam HD, which provides an easy way to monitor home, is the first product in D-Link's forthcoming Omna family of HomeKit-enabled devices.

The HomeKit enabled camera comes with advanced security features with end-to-end encryption. The HD Cam is cylindrical in shape and offers a 180-degree field of view at 1080p resolution. It also comes with a built-in microphone and speaker with two-way audio. It is capable of providing infrared night vision up to 16 feet. It has a motion detection sensor too and you can record video clips, triggered by motion, directly to a microSDXC card with a storage capacity of up to 128GB and that too with no subscription costs.

It is also very easy and simple to set up the 180 Cam HD. It just takes a few seconds to set up the Cam with a few simple steps via the Apple Home app in iOS 10.1. You can further control the Omna 180 Cam HD with an iPhone or iPad through HomeKit support. You will receive Lock screen notifications as and when the camera detects motion. It will provide users with a snapshot of what's happening in their homes. In addition, via HomeKit, the Omna 180 Cam HD is compatible with other Homekit enabled devices and can provide triggers when motion is detected.

The HD Cam will be available in the first quarter of 2017 though we do not have any information about its pricing yet. You can check out more information at us.dlink.com.

Could the semi-circular field of view be sufficient or would it need to have a 360-degree view? It's all about security, so isn't it vital to have an entire view of the surroundings?

This looks a cool new gadget. The design is pretty simple so it's easy to use and clean too. I didn't know that D-Link is also in IoT kind of things. I thought they were only into making routers.
