Logitech, who are well known for their wide selection of high-quality mice and keyboards for the office and mobile devices, has recently unveiled an updated version of their home security camera the Circle 2. I reviewed the original Logitech Circle security camera a year and a half ago and liked it except for the low video resolution, indoor only design, and pricing. Logitech has improved two of my three complaints.
The new Logitech Circle 2 is now available in either a wired or wireless version. Both models of the camera are weatherproof and suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
Logitech also offers several mounting solutions like the Weatherproof Case which makes sure the cables are protected from outside weather conditions.
There’s also a very cool looking Window Mount that sticks the Circle 2 right to the glass. I’m guessing that this mount doesn’t solve the problem with night vision IR reflecting against the glass, but I like that the window mount can…well… mount to the window!
The new Logitech Circle 2 cameras offer 1080p HD resolution, night vision, 180-degree wide-angle lens, and two-way talk and listen.
The wired and wireless Circle 2 cameras are priced at $179.99 and $199.00 respectively, and just like the original camera, the Circle 2 has 24-hours of free, encrypted cloud storage with the option to purchase a Circle Safe subscription plan that provides 14 days or 31 days of storage.
