  • Overview

    The D-Link Omna 180 Cam HD camera combines D-Link's deep knowledge of IP surveillance devices with the easy usability of Apple HomeKit technology. Its elegant, stylish design fits effortlessly into your home, whilst delivering a full suite of high-end features such as a 180-degree wide angle lens, Full HD 1080p resolution, two-way audio, night vision and a microSD card slot.

    The 180-degree wide-angle lens can capture an entire room using just one camera, and Full HD 1080p resolution allows you to see every little detail. Infra-red LEDs are hidden in plain sight behind the black bands on either side of the lens, providing night vision up to 5 metres (16 feet), even in complete darkness. You can also access the Omna 180 Cam HD directly from the Home app on your iPhone or iPad*. Or you can simply use the free Omna app for more control and advanced settings - you'll receive instant notifications no matter where you are.

      Needs work

      This camera, and HomeKit itself, need a lot of work. The wide angle lens is just too wide. The screenshots in the D-Link datasheet are completely misleading This camera, and HomeKit itself, need a lot of work. The wide angle lens is just too wide. The screenshots in the D-Link datasheet are completely misleading. The fisheye effect is extremely pronounced. Items 5 feet away on the sides are unrecognizable. And if the camera is at anything but eye level you waste a lot of viewing area on ceilings or floors. It would be nice to have a manual adjustment for the lens to let you zoom in and out. And it would be nice to be able to tilt the base manually. I don't expect a full PTZ camera but some manual adjustments would be helpful. However, the biggest problem is that HomeKit does not support multiple steps, or conditions, in automations. I want to have recording and motion detection enabled only when I am away from home. The lack of this most basic piece of functionality make this camera almost unusable. It will be constantly recording and triggering the motion detector. Ridiculous. I hate to be ragging on HomeKit and D-Link. I love Apple stuff and applaud D-Link for shipping the first HomeKit camera. But, as it is, I will not be buying another HomeKit accessory or camera until they add features that make it somewhat comparable to what else is already on the market.

      Better start than all of the competition

      So I have been holding out for a HomeKit Camera. I have looked at all the existing products out there in the meantime. I just received my D-Link Omna today ( So I have been holding out for a HomeKit Camera. I have looked at all the existing products out there in the meantime. I just received my D-Link Omna today (ordered yesterday), set it up and finished playing with it and the Home app in iOS. 1) The camera is small. The dimensions are listed but I didn't look at them and was blown away when I opened the box. Love it. 2) I wish it were black instead of silver. 3) It has a microSD slot with support for up to 128GB cards. Most competing products want a cloud based implementation. I wanted the opposite: built-in storage first and cloud, if available at all ( I don't care for it), second. 3) Image quality is great. Haven't tested at night yet. 4) Motion detection comes set at 90% by default in the app and so far I found that it's slightly delayed even when set to 99% (the max) in the app. 5) The firmware is Rev. 1.0. And the App is also just brand new. There is NO way to save a recorded video onto the phone. Individual clips can be deleted but there is NO to save or share them (yet?) 6) Integration with the Home app is seamless and works well. I want to see what D-Link does with updating the firmware and the App and I will be buying one of these for each room. Highly recommended because it's a great product off to a great start.

      From Canary to D-Link

      I made the jump mainly for my HomeKit hobby. The setup is easy, UI is okay, took some figuring out for the notifications. I hope improvements and new features a I made the jump mainly for my HomeKit hobby. The setup is easy, UI is okay, took some figuring out for the notifications. I hope improvements and new features are added (i.e., Home-Away mode, viewable thumbnails from SD saves). It is kind of hard going from a Canary to the Omna as Canary had everything I wanted except for a monthly subscription and no HomeKit support. Here's to hoping the Omna gets some additional features, and soon!

      Simple and high quality

Then I read about what may cause this (very simple search - l Before I bought this I saw the one-star review that said it wouldn't connect so they returned it. Then I read about what may cause this (very simple search - long wireless network name with apostrophe). So I decided to try the Omna 180Cam HD because it seemed like the best fit for us. Unboxed what looked to be a high quality device (it is), Super simple Apple-like setup. Didn't detect my long wireless network name (default Airport Extreme name). Renamed wireless network. iOS devices automatically picked up the name change, TVOS had to be updated manually. Omna app connected (nothing to change - firmware was already up-to-date) picked up the wireless network name and joined easily. This is my first Homekit device. Made sure AppleTV was setup to use Homekit (it was). AppleTV uses my wifes AppleID so I used her phone to setup a couple rooms, added the camera to a room. Then I invited my Apple ID. Viola! My wife and I can easily use the Home app to check on our dog. It works seamlessly whether we are on wifi or cellular including the speaker/microphone. We've been using it for a month now and I'm considering getting another one which caused me to see the reviews again. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because I noticed that it gets pretty warm, I may see about having it turn off while we are at home. Also I think D-Link should have included a small microSD card with it.

      Completely Unreliable outside home network

      If you're looking for a home kit camera, or even a security camera for alerts when you're away from home - this camera is not the one. It is not accessible If you're looking for a home kit camera, or even a security camera for alerts when you're away from home - this camera is not the one. It is not accessible outside your home network, which makes it pretty useless as a security device. Do not buy. Given up trying to get it to work.

      Remote Access Away From Home

      Good camera ... but ... if you don't have Apple TV & you want to access your camera remotely while you're away on holiday you cannot take your iPad away with yo Good camera ... but ... if you don't have Apple TV & you want to access your camera remotely while you're away on holiday you cannot take your iPad away with you too. In other words, you can use your iPad as a Home Hub (instead of Apple TV) but then the iPad has to stay in your property ... see Apple support article support.apple.com ref. HT207057, which states "The device that you set up as a home hub must remain in your home, connected to your home Wi-Fi network, and powered on.". When I'm away for a few days I typically take my phone & also my iPad with me ... if you don't have Apple TV then taking both your phone + iPad with you means you cannot access your camera remotely ... You'd either need to a) leave your iPad at home, b) buy Apple TV, or c) buy / use another iPad as a home hub, in order to access the camera remotely. At least, that's what I'm finding so far ... you cannot simply triangulate phone to Omna Cloud to Camera over the Internet.

    • D-Link Omna 180 Cam HD - data immediately saved on iCloud?
      • Asked by Garry P from Sehnde-Ilten
      • on 27/04/2017

      Answer

      Garry: I have the same questions as you as I am considering purchasing the device. Here's what I Garry: I have the same questions as you as I am considering purchasing the device. Here's what I was able to learn by searching on D-Link's website in the support section for the product "DSH-C310" and viewing the FAQs. Apple won't let me provide the URLs. 1. Regarding the storage of recorded video onto iCloud, I found the following on D-Link's website: "Apple currently does not support cloud recording via the HomeKit ecosystem for security reasons, so there is currently no way to record video from any HomeKit camera to the cloud. D-Link does not currently offer any alternative cloud recording mechanism, other than a microSD card slot on the camera. You can configure motion detection-based recording which will be automatically saved to a microSD card inserted into the card slot. Recorded video clips can be played back on mobile devices using the Omna app, or the microSD card can be removed from the device and read using a computer." I'd thought it really stupid that a security camera only records video to the camera itself and could not understand why they can't record to iCloud. There's the answer. The camera manufacturer can't do it as Apple won't let them. If you want to record to cloud, you'll have to get a camera that includes a subscription to that camera's cloud-based storage system. 2. Regarding triggering on motion detection, here's what their website says: "The 180 Cam HD’s motion detection feature can trigger alerts when it detects movement within its field of view. This detection can produce a notification on your mobile device, trigger local recording to a microSD card, or initiate an automation policy. Motion detection is turned on by default in both the Omna and Home apps." The answer includes instructions with screenshots showing how it is done. Best Regards, Mark
