D-Link has released an update to the OMNA app for its Omna 180 Cam HD HomeKit-enabled Camera, noting several new interesting features that will be rolling out by an accompanying OTA firmware update over the next few days. The OMNA 180 Cam HD was the first HomeKit-enabled camera to arrive on the market after Apple added support for the feature in iOS 10 back in 2016, and while the new update doesn’t appear to be adding any new HomeKit-specific features, users will be able to use the OMNA app itself to schedule automatic OTA firmware updates in the future, as well as arming and disarming the motion sensor with a single tap and viewing “summary clips” that will presumably provide an overview of motion events. The release notes for the app also indicate that notification behaviours have been modified, along with a usual more general note about bugfixes. The updated OMNA app is available from the App Store now, but the new features will also require a firmware update that appears to be rolling out more gradually.
