Logitech has this week unveiled the second piece of hardware in its Logi range of devices and taken the wraps off the new Logitech Logi Circle camera, that is now available to preorder priced at $200.
The Logitech Logi Circle camera has been created to provide a competitor to Google’s Nest Camera and comes with its own Android and iOS companion application.
Enabling users to stream Live HD Video with 2-Way Talk and Listen over a wireless network. Vincent Borel, director of new ventures at Logitech explains more :
There’s a new movement in home monitoring. The nature of today’s connected world is changing the way people interact with cameras in the home. Video surveillance is no longer just about security, it’s about staying connected with our homes and loved ones. Planned or unplanned, magic moments happen in our homes every day and we designed the Logi Circle as your destination for capturing and discovering them no matter where you are or what you’re doing. Now you can watch your kids playing or catch your dog chasing its tail even if you’re running errands, traveling for business or at the office.
The Logitech Logi Circle camera will start shipping next month throughout the US and selected countries within Europe. Logitech explains a little more about their new Scene Intuition video filtering technology :
Scene Intuition learns your home life patterns and filters the footage to send alerts only on interesting activity, so you don’t need to sift through spam footage. And, when you want to see what action has taken place in your home, Day Briefs provide an auto-generated, 30-second video summary of the best moments from that day. You can see this daily summary with one touch of the app.
Because life doesn’t stay still, the Logi Circle is portable and rechargeable. Take the camera room to room with you to stream for up to three hours, and when you need to recharge it simply place on the included magnetic charging ring.
