Use a paperclip to depress the reset button on the base of the Camera. The reset button only needs to be depressed momentarily. The indicator LED on the front of the camera will turn red to indicate that the camera is resetting. The reset process should take around 1-2 minutes, with the indicator LED ﬂashing orange to indicate that the reset process has been completed and the camera is ready to be added to your home network.
A solid red LED indicates that the camera cannot connect to the Wi-Fi network to which it has been confgured. First, check that your Wi-Fi network is functioning correctly (Wi-Fi router is powered on and wireless functionality enabled) and the camera is within range of the Wi-Fi network. If the Wi-Fi network is functioning correctly and the camera LED is still red, it means that the camera in unable to connect to the network using the confgured credentials. You should reset the camera to factory default using the reset button on the base of the unit, and re-install the camera using the Omna or Home apps.
A ﬂashing green LED indicates that the camera has been removed/unpaired from your HomeKit controller (the iOS device you used to install the camera). You should reset the camera to factory default using the reset button on the base of the unit, and re-install the camera using the Omna or Home apps.
To access the camera remotely (away from home), an Apple TV (4th generation) with tvOS 10.1 or higher or iPad with iOS 10.1 or higher is required to act as a Home Hub. Apple provides a detailed guide on how to set up a Home Hub for remotely controlling HomeKit accessories.
The 180 Cam HD’s motion detection feature can trigger alerts when it detects movement within its feld of view. This detection can produce a notifcation 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. You can adjust motion detection settings as follows:
Go to the Cameras page and tap the Settings icon.
Tap the Motion Detection menu item from the list.
Tap the Motion Setting slider to toggle motion detection on or off.
If motion detection is turned on, the following confguration options will be available:
Detection Area - Tap the areas of the grid to turn motion detection on or oﬀ for that area. Orange shading indicates that an area is being monitored for motion detection.
Sensitivity - You can adjust the motion detection sensitivity by sliding the marker along the scale.
Motion Retrigger Delay - Select the length of time the 180 Cam HD will wait before sending subsequent notifcations. This is useful in areas where continuous motion may be occurring.
Tap and hold the Motion Detection item in your Home screen.
Tap Status and Notifcations.
Tap the Allow Notifications slider to turn motion detection notifcations on or off.
Put simply, the Home app provides basic functionality for the camera as well as motion detection notifications, and also allows the 180 Cam HD to interact with other HomeKit enabled devices. The Omna app provides additional functionality including local recording and playback, adjustment of motion detection settings, and frmware upgrades. We would recommend that you use both the Omna and Home apps concurrently in order to get the greatest beneft from all of the great features oﬀered by the 180 Cam HD.

The 180 Cam HD is accepts most types of microSD card. We recommend that you use a microSD card which meets the following specifcations:
The Omna 180 Cam HD's sensor is capable of producing 1080p Full HD resolution video, however in order to minimize video lag and buﬀering caused by changes in network conditions, the live video is automatically adjusted to the achieve the best quality video given the current network enviroment. For example, while your home network might normally be capable of providing enough bandwidth to the 180 Cam HD for 1080p video, in a situation where there is a temporaray increase in network activity (such as other users downloading large fles or watching high quality streaming video), to avoid live video stoppage or stuttering due to insufcient network speed, the 180 Cam HD will dynamically adjust the video's resolution to the best possible quality given the available bandwidth and latency, ensuring an uninterrupted live video experience.
Video clips recorded to a microSD card are recorded in 720p HD resolution. Video streaming can use a large amount of data and also requires a large amount of processing power. The 180 Cam HD allows for up to two devices to simultaneously stream 1080p live video, which take a signifcant amount of the device's processing power. Priority is given to live video, as it's what most users will use more often. The remaining processing power is sufcient for 720p HD resolution, and is used for recording to microSD cards.
