A great way to compliment your home security system and beef up it’s security is to invest in a video surveillance camera. There is a wide variety of video surveillance cameras out on the market and today we will be taking a look at the Logitech Circle 2 Camera.
Nowadays there are many ways to keep a close eye on the things we find most valuable to us. One of those ways is to invest in a home security camera. Home security cameras are becoming increasing popular with homeowners across the United States, and when they are integrated with a home security system they are highly effective in deterring crime. Just take a look at Link Interactive’s home security/home security camera bundles.
Before we go over the features of the Logitech Circle 2 Camera, we would like to give our readers some background information on the company Logitech. Logitech is a European based tech company that specializes in products for personal computers and phones. Logitech was founded in 1981, and have been making these types of tech products since. They have currently expanded their product line to include some security equipment like their Logitech Circle 2 Camera, and we will be going over that in this post today.
The Logitech Circle 2 Camera is a very versatile security camera. It can be used indoors or outdoors due to the weather-proof material from which the Logitech Circle 2 Camera is made. The Logitech Circle 2 Camera comes in two versions; a wired and wireless version. Both versions work by connecting to your home’s WIFI network wirelessly with the difference being in how they are powered. The wireless version of the Logitech Circle 2 Camera is powered via a rechargeable battery while the wired version of the Logitech Circle 2 Camera is powered by plugging it directly to an AC power source.
The Logitech Circle 2 Camera has a compact sphere design making it easy to place in a discreet location. It has a video resolution of 1080P with a 180-degree field of view. It has night vision technology included that allows you to capture video clips up to 15 feet in low or no light scenarios. The camera is also a DIY type of install and includes everything you need for a fast and simple installation.
The Logitech Circle 2 Camera has some really great basic features. We like that the Logitech Circle 2 Camera comes in a wired and wireless version. We also the wireless version due to the simple fact that it gives you more options of where it can be placed. Now, if you’re looking for a security camera that you can integrate with a home security system that is professionally monitored by a 24/7 monitoring station, then give our home security system and cameras a look. Our home security systems can be controlled and monitored by you, the end-user and come with a lot more features than the Logitech cameras.
The Logitech Circle 2 Camera has some really useful advanced features. The Logitech Circle 2 Camera includes a 2-way audio feature. This feature allows you to hear and communicate with whomever is around your camera. It also includes zoom technology that allows you to zoom in on an image for better detail. The Logitech Circle 2 Camera uses advanced motion sensing technology that will trigger your camera to start recording when motion is detected. You can customize all your alerts for your Logitech Circle 2 Camera through the Logitech app for Android, Apple, and PC devices. Another really cool feature of the Logitech Circle 2 Camera is that you can use smart home assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa to use voice controls to control this camera.
The Logitech Circle 2 Camera advanced features really focus on the practical uses for this camera. We like the fact that it has a 2-way audio feature. We also like the fact that you can incorporate and use it with smart home assistants. The one advanced feature that we wish the Logitech Circle 2 Camera had was a pan/tilt feature. If you’re look for a pan/tilt feature that lets you move and rotate the camera from your phone and also zoom in and out, take a look at our Alarm.com cameras.
Video clips that are captured by your Logitech Circle 2 Camera are stored for free for 1 day through its Circle Safe storage program. If you are looking to have longer storage of your video clips you will need to pay a monthly subscription fee for the Circle Safe storage program.
With Link Interactive on the other hand, not only do you have the option of storing your clips on the Cloud, but you can also get an SVR (kind of like a DVR device, but digital and online) and store your clips locally on there.
You can control all of the features of your Logitech Circle 2 Camera through the Logitech app which is free to download for Apple, Android, and PC devices. There are some free features that are given with the Logitech app such as push notifications for when your camera starts to record and the ability to stream live video.
If you are looking to use the advanced remote features for your Logitech Circle 2 Camera you will need to have purchased Logitech’s Circle Safe Premium Plan. With this plan you will get to use the free features listed above along with human detection technology and customized motion zones. If you are looking to purchase a Logitech Circle 2 Camera you will pay anywhere from $180 to $360, and this depends on what version of the Logitech Circle 2 Camera you go with.
The Logitech Circle 2 Camera is a great little camera to invest in. One really great thing that makes the Logitech Circle 2 Camera stand out from the rest of the video surveillance cameras that are out on the market currently is that it can be used indoors our outdoors. Logitech is a well-known brand, and you can purchase a product through them with confidence.
Why Link Interactive?
However, the Logitech Circle 2 is limited in terms of home security features. What we mean by this is that if you’re looking to get the most features for your buck, then you might want to look elsewhere. It’s easy to install and versatile, but when it comes to self-monitoring, it lacks behind other more established security cameras on the market, such as Link Interactive’s Alarm.com cameras. Alarm.com has an extensive lineup of home security cameras, from PoE (Power over Ethernet) to totally wireless. Another great thing about Link Interactive’s Alarm.com cameras is that they can be connected to full blown home security system, and then monitored from a single source, such as the app on your iPhone or Android phone. They can also be monitored by a professional 24/7 emergency response service that would dispatch the authorities in the case of an alarm.
