D-Link has launched the first in its Omna family of Apple HomeKit-enabled devices, the new Omna 180 Cam HD, on apple.com.au and apple.co.nz. The company will also launch the camera in Apple stores around Australia later this month.
The Omna 180 Cam HD provides an easy way for users to monitor their home for extra peace of mind. Omna’s HomeKit integration allows users to be “always home” and includes advanced security features with end-to-end encryption and authentication between the camera and an iPhone or iPad.
When activity is detected, users will receive a rich notification on their lock screen, delivered via the Apple Home app, showing a live feed from the camera. Users can even access their Omna remotely to see what’s happening in their home in real time.1
D-Link ANZ MD Graeme Reardon said, “Omna is the first in our range of connected home devices that uses all of D-Link’s very latest technological advancements and features. Being the first to launch an Apple HomeKit-enabled camera makes this product and those to follow even more exciting for consumers.”
Omna’s HomeKit integration allows users to be “always home.” Seeing everything through your iOS device offers extra peace of mind – keeping an eye on your baby in the nursery, checking on an elderly relative, watching your dog in the living room, or helping ensure homes are safe while you’re away.
Apple HomeKit enabled – The Omna 180 Cam HD sets up in seconds thanks to Apple HomeKit technology. Simply use your camera to scan the unique HomeKit accessory code included with the product, and you’re up and running.
180-Degree Field of View – Omna is derived from the Latin word ‘omnis’ meaning all-encompassing. Most cameras offer a limited 130-degree lens, while D-Link’s unique 180-degree solutions and de-warping technology allow users to see just about everywhere and everything.
Dynamic Video Streaming – The video bitrate continuously adjusts to ensure optimal performance given the available bandwidth.
Two-Way Audio – Listen and speak using the camera’s built-in microphone and speaker, so even when users are not at home they can still make their presence known.
Night Vision – See up to five meters in complete darkness with infrared night vision.
Motion Detection – Triggers alerts and automatic video clip recording
Local Recording –Record motion detection triggered video clips directly to a microSD card up to 128GB, with remote playback capabilities. Offers pre-event snapshot and recording, with more flexibility on recording video locally to the camera without impacting network or Internet bandwidth. All with no recurring monthly fees.
Controlling the Omna 180 Cam HD away from home requires an Apple TV (4th generation or later) with tvOS 10.1 or later or iPad with iOS 10.1 or later..
The Omna 180 Cam HD will retail for AUD$329.95 and NZ$349.95
