Review and Buying Guide Logitech Circle Wi-Fi Portable Video Monitoring Camera

I hardly ever considered i would locate a use for a little something like this but due to the fact trailing it if not just identified. I never imagined i’d uncover a use for anything like this but because trailing it if not just found it handy i’ve observed it excellent enjoyment toothe circle actually is composed of 3 elements: the camera alone a baseplate with three screw holes, a magnet, and a 3m sticky strip for a plethora of mounting selections and a charger ring which receives sandwiched in-amongst them. The charging cable is about 10 toes extended but the battery will final for three hrs streaming or 10 in reduced power modethe magnet is so strong, it will conveniently take care of to most metals and your one particular issue will be getting it offi set it up without telling the loved ones, to capture 24 hours of occasions in our lounge. It really is time lapse day seize and quick hurts replay was terrific enjoyment to look at but i might recommend building confident you protect up if you have a pattern of walking all-around your dwelling in a state of undressthe application is uncomplicated to install and the application can be applied both on android or ios which is fantastic entertaining if you want to freak your family members out and scold your child for obtaining biscuits when they should not just a push the talk perform and got i. The home with themit’s fantastic my only quibble is its not truly a security camera, it truly is motion activated so finest possibly for a person of individuals caught in the act type robberies or negative behaviour. It’s movement sensors will ping you a notification as soon as activated much too.

Excellent, could get greater with computer software updates. I use this camera as a baby monitor. The magnetic charging dock is trapped to the wall around the cot employing the provided 3m command tape which is wonderful as i can get rid of it simply with no harmful the wall. The camera by itself is very good, reasonably very clear image, plenty of helpful options. Specifically the infra pink check out. The major situation with this camera is the program. Supposedly the camera is able of 1080p but presently only supports 720p. Also there is no desktop/tablet app so you are restricted to applying your smartphone at all moments. The application operates perfectly and is effortless to use but i experience like there are several evident constraints that they definitely will need to update. Actually, i would price this camera 5 stars if they update the program to deal with the troubles detailed.

Trendy and superior at what it does. The products has been put at my disposal by the overview club for testing needs without the need of any obligation but to present my feeling on this item. Very first impressions –the box is neatly laid out and simple to open. Fortunately there is no significant thick instruction books or nearly anything like that. It is all pleasant and cleanly laid out. The camera alone usually takes a ton of styling from the aged logitech webcams that i made use of to use a very long time back. App/set up –i’m not lying when i say that this took just about a minute to set up. After it was plugged in and the application was downloaded, all i experienced to do was produce an account, and then it picked up the camera routinely. The ipad application has a pretty clean up look to it, and will make it seriously quick to pull up moments from through the working day, or to watch a fast summary of the day. The clear layout is a thing that they have clearly set a lot of hard work into creating and it is a little something that arrives off very well and seems incredibly stylish.

Excellent but not as a security camera. This camera saves the past 24 hours of movement recordings and let us you overview them and help save them for no cost in that time. Having said that, after that, they are long gone endlessly. Therefore, it really is not excellent as a security camera but is great to retain a are living eye on your property / pets / kids. Obtaining reported that, most other cameras will make you pay back a subscription to obtain your clips for lengthier than 24 hours.

In general a pretty awesome camera and would take into account shopping for just one. I am examining the logi circle on behalf of the evaluate club for testing applications with no any obligation but to provide my impartial viewpoint on this merchandise. Set-up is quite uncomplicated, just obtain the app to your cellular and it requires you by means of it. The camera docks on a charging ring but can be moved off and placed anywhere you want. Battery lifetime is confined to all over three hours however when not on its charging ring. I have had the camera for just one 7 days hunting out in excess of the garden and auto largely. Only for the reason that my partner and workmates have been watching me on the stay feed whilst at get the job done. I did tell him to change the application off by means of the two way audio hyperlink. The illustrations or photos are quite crystal clear even in minimal lights.

Logitech Circle Wi-Fi Portable Video Monitoring Camera with Two-Way Talk, ideal Pet Cam / Baby Monitor / Security : Would recommend but very basic. The logi tech camera is usefull for day time viewing of your loved ones but during the night it seems to stop recording and shuts down. It skips footage all the time and so i miss precious moments of my sons activitys during the day when im at work. So altough the camera is really usefull whilst you are watching live feed it doesnt really work well for security purposes.

    Excellent device for working parents and people wanting adde safety. Very simple to install (perform simple online updates first) and oozes quality. I have set-up device to notify me of movements in the house, i get a message on the ipad and can then see a live video feed or view recorded playback. Somewhat nervous when device detected movement when no one was home this week but turned out to my wife who had a cancelled work course and had snuck home. Night vision is excellent (circa 5m in pitch black) but only downside is that if you plan to use nigh vision through a window you get reflection, not big issue for me. Model easy to move and very unobtrusive. The “talk” feature is great, i can now see my children and help / encourage / tell off (delete as appropriate) by talking with them over the device via 3g on my ipad mini. Price when purchased in early june was £119, great value but i see price is higher.

    Good but not as a security camera. This camera saves the last 24 hours of motion recordings and let’s you review them and save them for free in that time. However, after that, they’re gone forever. Therefore, it’s not great as a security camera but is fine to keep a live eye on your house / pets / kids. Having said that, most other cameras will make you pay a subscription to access your clips for longer than 24 hours.

    Battery & free cloud storage .It is all because of the integrated battery & free cloud storage, that all the other security camera manufacturers missed to integrate. I live in a modern apartment in one of europe’s capitals and i have recently discovered that the entire electricity from my apartment can be simply switched off from a panel outside of my apartment, which mean that i could invest a ton of money on advanced security cameras, sensors and alarms and all a thief should do would be to first switch off the electricity of the apartment and poof. No working cameras, no wireless router, no nothing. Instead i installed the logi facing the main entrance of my apartment and. Since my internet provider ofered me also an unlimited internet access sim card i installed it on a 3g router (which also has it’s own power supply) and connected the logi camera to that routers wi-fi. Now, even in the case of no electricity inside of the apartment i will still have both an active camera and a wi-fi connection and all the activity will be recorder in cloud ;)great, great, great.

    My wife and i decided to get a video camera for monitoring our baby’s sleeping. We already have a good ‘crying’ monitor so only needed the video. After spending a good deal of time reading camera reviews, i finally came to the conclusion that they all have their issues and this one at least looked good, had a decent camera and ios apps and could save to cloud. While setting it up in our living room (where our virginmedia superhub 2 lives), it appeared to work. However, i then attempted the firmware update it suggested and this process appears to have crashed midway through, leaving the camera in a vegetative state with the green light on. Tried the off and on switch but it off but the light stays on, the app says it’s offline and there isn’t any battery to unplug. I am an experienced software developer myself so this was not user error. Will post an update if this gets resolved – i guess i could let the battery run down overnight. Edit: once it ran out of battery it was able to start up again with the new firmware and so far is working well subject to patchy wifi in the baby’s room.

      Great device with incredibly easy to use interface (via app). Great device with incredibly easy to use interface (via app). Set up was a doddle and its functions, whilst maybe basic compared to some cameras, will be more than enough for most users. No ongoing subscriptions make this a great option for general home use – its not a dedicated security camera, but it will certainly help. At the moment i’m using it to detect squirrel movement in my loft and the night vision is excellent. However i’ll also use it for pet-monitoring and also house security monitoring whilst i’m away. The app will be improved over time i suspect, but it’s already very good. Some users complain of maximum 720 resolution, but mine has 1080 too – i suspect the recent software upgrades have added this. Having said that, 720 is very good anyway. All in all, a good value, fun camera, with many applications – and very easy to use.

        Excellent camera for the money. This camera is better than nestcam because of the free 24 hours cloud recording. I bought 6 of these and works perfectly. Setup is so simple even my 5 year old son could do it.

    I’ve been looking for an ip camera for a while now, having previously owned a foscam, that was returned due to weak security concerns. Unfortunately it seems most models out there now from the main brands are reliant upon subscription models – which isn’t something i’m interested in. This is particularly disappointing with the nest cam – since i already own a thermostat and multiple smoke alarms this would have been a neat addition to the nest app. The logi circle does not have this issue, so thought i’d give it a go (it also won the mac format magazine may 16 edition shoot out against canary, kodak cfl-v15, netamo welcome, netgear ario q and withings home hd) – which is positive. First off the packaging, very nicely presented – easy to get into and a quality feel – which seems to be the norm with logitech products. The camera itself is small, and feels well built. The mount option is also quite innovative too. The installation was simple, download the app, switch the camera on, enter wifi password and register an account – that’s it.Mine asked me to do a firmware upgrade, which i allowed – just taking 5 minutes or so.

    Good, could get better with software updates. I use this camera as a baby monitor. The magnetic charging dock is stuck to the wall near the cot using the supplied 3m command tape which is great as i can remove it easily without damaging the wall. The camera itself is pretty good, relatively clear picture, lots of useful features. Especially the infra red view. The main issue with this camera is the software. Supposedly the camera is capable of 1080p but currently only supports 720p. Also there is no desktop/tablet app so you are restricted to using your smartphone at all times. The app works well and is easy to use but i feel like there are several glaring limitations that they really need to update. Honestly, i would rate this camera 5 stars if they update the software to fix the issues listed.

    Excellent picture, easy to instal. Clear picture and sound too. I love the cloud capabilities too. I ended up buying 3 of them.

      Easy – good simple proposition. Had this for a few months now. I noticed some reviews were not complimentary. So i’ve just been checking out the nest review. Amazingly that camera doesn’t include the free 24hr video summary of any activity that logi circle does. And that’s logi circle’s usp. It alerts you if anything happens. You can save down the clip if you want to.

    Another cracking logitech product. . Got one for christmas, popped it in the lounge. Now i can see my family while i’m at work. Which means if i’m homesick or just want to see my son playing while i’m away i can with ease. Other cool features – night vision, warnings when movement is detected (good for home protection?) and ‘day briefs’ which is basically a snapshot video of the entire day in under a minute (or so). It’s got a wide angle view, two way communication and an easy to use app. Another cracking logitech product. + no rubbish fees for your streaming.

    Great quality camera but the set up was a little tricky. I was a little nervous about setting this up because i’ve never owned this type of kit before so was unsure of how easy it was to set up – especially because when you open the box there is no instruction manual in there. Instead you’re told to download the app, which would be fine but the box doesn’t set out the exact name of the app (you need to put in “circle logi” to pull it up). Once i’d got past that hiccup though the process itself was smooth – you need to have your bluetooth enabled but once you do the app connects up with the camera the app takes you through the set up and controls and i actually found it quite intuitive. The camera also has a microphone (which can be switched off) and night vision and a led function, all of which are useful. It’s easy to charge via a nifty magnetic charging base and the battery has a 12 hour lifespan (enhanced by a power saving mode), which is more than enough to cover the working day. There’s also a wall bracket that enables you to fix it to something if you so wish. The picture quality is excellent and i liked the playback function that allows you to skim through what’s happened. All in all, if it wasn’t for the hiccups in setting it up, this would be an absolutely brilliant product. Notwithstanding that though, i am very happy with it and am looking into buying another one.
    • What's this?
      Good quality video and audio streamed direct to your phone. Nice solid freestanding unit with magnetic charging platform. Also comes with screws so it can be mounted upside down to a ceiling, and remain in charge whilst doing so. Works well for security with notifications being sent to your phone as soon as motion is detected. Night mode is also very good with high intensity infrared lights illuminating whole rooms with ease (don’t place on/near a shiny surface as the glare will bounce up and haze things a bit)negatives are few and far between. There is a lag of about 2 seconds between stuff being captured and it being displayed on your phone. This makes conversing through the camera (as is suggested by the marketing material) extremely awkward and disjointed. This really isn’t a way to “keep in touch with your family” as it is marketed.
      • What's this?
        Excellent camera for fun and security. I was a bit wary when i opened the nicely made box to find no directions for this camera, just a bit printed on box saying to switch camera on and download the apphowever i needn’t have worried as it was very easy, i only use htc phones and the app found the camera in seconds, all i did was enter password on broadband hub plus it asked for email and a password, job done, but i am still learning how to use all the controls on the camera via the phone screen, all there is actually on the camera is on off switch underneath, which is a bit awkward to use as you need fingernails to do iti have so far only had fun with it, the picture is excellent with a very wide angle, the camera sits on a base to charge, which has a very long power lead, or you can use it without using internal battery. The camera is very sensitive to movement so just about any movement will turn it on, even moving one finger at 15ft starts it recordingi will try it at front door when i am more used to it, it’s also night vision i’m told, might try leaving it guarding my motorbike in the garage sometime too, even if a thief nicks or destroys camera it will already have stored the pictures to downloadall in a very nice bit of kit in my opinion, and something i can see me using regularly, just need to learn more.
