WHAT IS THE LOGITECH CIRCLE?
From keeping your home secure to recording life’s precious memories, there are loads of ways smart home monitoring manufacturers can guilt-trip you into buying their latest wares. Logitech has taken a very family-focused approach with its Circle camera, claiming it’s the ideal solution for any parent looking to keep a watchful eye on their kids remotely.
In technical terms, it’s no different to every other smart home monitoring kit Trusted’s reviewed in recent months. It lets you monitor your home from anywhere and includes motion sensing, night vision and some cloud storage space. Its pricing puts it in the same ball park the class-leading Y-Cam HomeMonitor HD and Nest Cam, but it has none of the advanced features or wider ecosystem that these products offer.
LOGITECH CIRCLE – SETUP
Setting up the Circle is fairly simple. The camera takes the form of three separate pieces: a mounting plate for screwing into the wall or ceiling, a charging dock that attaches directly to the mounting plate, and the main spherical camera. The main camera is attached to a circular plastic base that can be separated from the charging plate and moved around your home.
The camera has electrical contact points on its underside that connect directly to the charging ring. This means the camera can be rotated independently of the stand, so you’ll never run the risk of getting its wires tangled. The camera has 110 degrees of tilt too, so it’s very easy to point it in the right direction. There’s also a USB wall plug and a 10ft USB cable that’s hard-wired into the charging ring.
