Living in Toronto, I always want to make sure my home is secure. Especially, when I’m not home. Thankfully technology has been changing rapidly, and things have gotten easier to monitor even when we aren’t home!
We’ve tried other cameras before and been happy with what we’ve gotten from them, but the new D-link Omna 180 Cam HD has raised the bar. Not only is the picture crisp, clear and 180 degrees of where you have it placed, but you can also speak into it, so if anyone were to approach your door or get into your home you could speak into the camera and tell them to GET OUT!
This feature, I think is one my husband had the most fun with. When he goes out, and I am at home with the kids, he’s freaked me out by speaking into it, and it was impeccable.

Adding the 180 Cam HD to your home is as simple as following the instructions in the Omna or Home apps and using your camera to scan the unique HomeKit accessory setup code included in the product package. It’s as simple as that!
SEE THE BIGGER PICTURE: Your home is important to you. The 180 Cam HD gives you extra peace of mind, showing you as much of it as possible. Most cameras only o er a 120° lens (or less), but the 180 Cam HD features an 180° wide-angle lens, making it feasible to see a full room with just one camera.
Placed on a shelf or mantle, the 180 Cam HD can help you to keep watch over your living room, child’s bedroom, nursery, or garage to help ensure your home is safe while you are away. D-Link’s advanced de-warping software digitally straightens the 180 Cam HD’s wide-angle image, for the clearest possible view.
SEE, HEAR AND TALK:
Because ‘always home’ means being there even when you’re not, a built-in microphone and speaker allow you to not only listen to what the 180 Cam HD hears, but also make yourself heard by those who are nearby the camera.
My home is imperative to me as is the safety of my whole family, including my dogs. We’ve had some issues with neighbors and our dogs so it’s interesting now that we have this camera as we can now set it up to monitor our yard too. My favorite feature is how crisp and clear the photos are. I can watch from on the go and see things clearly, unlike many other cameras that show a grainy and not clear picture.
There is an essential Motion detection setup. You can clear it and set up the areas that you want to cover. This is also good when you have kids trying to get into everything, and you are trying to watch from another room; I got my eye on you little ones!
Of all the cameras we’ve tried, I would say this is my favorite. Not only because of the excellent picture quality but also because it’s small, it of the “See, Hear and talk feature!”
For a busy family, or someone always on the go this is the perfect way to keep an eye on your home from on the go! I’m excited to be able to monitor, and feel comfort knowing I can keep a close eye on things even when I’m not close! I like to watch and see what my three pups are up to when we aren’t home…. Little tricksters.
