If you’re looking for a HomeKit-enabled security camera for your home, you’ll be pleased to learn that D-Link’s Omna camera is now available for purchase. The camera was officially announced at CES 2017 earlier in January and is apparently the first HomeKit-enabled camera in the market.
For those who might have missed out on D-Link’s announcement at CES, the Omna is a cylindrical-shaped camera. It features a 1080p Full HD camera and is capable of capturing a 180-degree view, so you could place it at a corner of the room and be able to take in everything at once.
It comes with a built-in microphone, a speaker with two-way audio, infrared night vision of up to 16 feet, motion detection, and support for microSDXC memory cards. The best part is that the video captured will be stored onto the memory cards, so if you’d rather not pay for cloud services or subscription services that other manufacturers offer with their cameras, the D-Link Omna could be it.
It is also HomeKit-enabled, which we guess could also be one of the camera’s selling points. This means that the camera can be controlled easily with iOS devices running on iOS 10 and above, and because of HomeKit integration users will be able to receive notifications on their Lock Screen when events are happening. The camera is priced at $200 and is available via Apple’s Online Store.
