Smart IoT devices are revolutionizing the way we monitor our homes. Whether we want real-time alerts at the exact moment a UPS driver drops off a package or a 30-second streaming recap of the day’s activities with the Nanny, home security is super easy to set up and caters to the homeowner’s preference. Introducing Circle 2 by Logitech – a weatherproof modular home surveillance camera that keeps an eye on your home 24/7 with an intuitive companion app, four different mounting options, and 1080p HD image quality.
Weighing only 7.3 ounces and designed for both outdoor and indoor use, the Circle 2 is a highly versatile device and super durable. With four different mounting options, Logitech newest modular camera can be installed anywhere around the house without sticking out like a sore thumb. By changing the mounting accessories, you end up altering the smart camera’s abilities. Here is a quick summary of each mount:
The Glass Window Mount – allows users to see outdoors without a glare
The Plug Mount – provides a 24/7 surveillance experience without worry about battery power
The Weatherproof Extension – comes with an insulated cable to tackle all types of harsh weather conditions
The Rechargeable Battery Pack – lasts three straight months on a single charge.
With the option of purchasing a wired or wireless system, the Circle 2 security camera allows homeowners to have a stress-free monitoring experience without having to replace batteries or rewire the house.
Logitech, when making the Circle 2, spared no expense with regard to image quality. With a max resolution of 1080p HD and the ability to capture night vision on an 180-degree wide-angle lens, you’ll never miss the family cat jump on the counter trying to steal a late night snack. Backed by unlimited live surveillance streaming and storage options of 14-days (basic plan) or 31 days (premium), homeowner’s can customize their motions zone preference.
Taking advantage of Logitech’s person detection technology, users can pre-program the UPS driver, the Nanny, family members and the frequent visitors of your home – seamlessly identifying the difference between an intruder and a house guest.
As with most IoT devices, their true value isn’t realized until you connect to their companion app. The same goes for the Circle 2. Backed by 24 hours of two-way encrypted cloud storage, Logitech’s smart app lets you analyze unlimited live streaming footage from the convenience of your smartphone. Here are some of the cool features that make Logitech’s Circle 2 a powerful surveillance system:
The Advanced Event Filtering feature – a convenient way to not only identify but record relevant motion so you can seamlessly locate and reply clips that matter.
Smart Time-lapse Day Briefs – play/download a free 30-second recap of the day by allowing the app to “intelligently sort through footage” to see only the stuff that’s action-packed.
Talk & Listen Feature – activates the two-way talk and listen feature for greeting guests or warning intruders to get off your property.
Smart Location – allows Circle 2 to intelligently determine when to turn alerts on/off depending upon your location.
If you’ve drunken the smart home Kool-Aid, you know that IoT devices work their magic when they speak to each other. Logitech’s wireless Circle 2 version links to Amazon Echo for use with Alexa. Whether you want to set up motion detection recognition profiles, initiate recordings at certain times throughout the day, or notify the system of an upcoming vacation, Alexa’s voice recognition software lets you control Circle 2 without needing to open the app.
With an estimated ship date scheduled for mid-July and plans to make Circle 2 compatible with Apple’s Homekit, Logitech’s newest surveillance camera is the perfect device for the homeowner interested in bringing their connected home to the next level.
