Today Logitech announced the Logitech Circle View Camera, a new security camera created to work with Apple HomeKit and support Apple HomeKit Secure Video.
Circle View features a nice design with premium details, including a metal base, matte finish and a power cable that blends with any space. The camera is simple to set up, can be placed on a shelf or wall-mounted, and it features a weatherproof body.
It supports 1080p HD video, an ultra-wide 180° diagonal field-of-view, clear contrast with wide dynamic range and enhanced infrared night vision capability up to 15 ft away.
The camera offers Apple HomeKit and HomeKit Secure Video support for privacy features, including end-to-end encryption, on-device video analysis, automated recording, secure and private storage in iCloud and more. On top of this, the camera allows you to tilt it down for quick privacy or to manually disable the camera audio and video completely with the press of a button whenever desired – particularly useful when the camera is placed indoors.
HomeKit Secure Video uses on-device intelligence to privately analyze the live feed of Circle View cameras and determine when a person, animal or vehicle is present before securely storing the recorded video in iCloud on supported plans. Camera recordings don’t count against your iCloud storage limit and you can view live and recorded video from your Circle View camera in the Apple Home app on your iPhone, iPad or Mac.
Logitech Circle View will be available at Logitech.com and Apple.com beginning today for $159.99 USD.
