D-Link's first and only HomeKit security camera gets a steep price drop

D-Link's first and only HomeKit security camera gets a steep price drop

In my D-Link Omna 180 Cam HD review, one of my complaints is the security camera's high price. At S$319, it has a rather skimpy feature set compared other IP cameras out there, and that strengthens the impression that customers are paying a premium for the HomeKit integration.

That said, since early August, D-Link has dropped the price of the Omna camera to a more wallet-friendly S$239. That’s a steep S$80 drop. It’s unknown what prompted this price drop, though one could guess D-Link is anticipating fiercer competition in the coming months when iOS 11 is released.

Still, whether you’re drawn by HomeKit’s promise of security and/or you simply want to have all your home automation devices to appear neatly in the iOS Home app, there’s never been a better time to buy the D-Link Omna 180 Cam HD, which at this moment is still the only shipping HomeKit-enabled home survelliance camera.
