I love long summer days that lead to late night hang outs on our patio, that is, until I’m all tucked into bed after everyone has left, hear a strange noise and end up lying awake for hours wondering what’s trying to sneak in to my home. And don’t lie and tell me that’s never happened to you! I mean, everyone has heard a noise or two at night, right? When Logitech reached out to partner with me to give their home security camera, Circle 2, a try, I quickly obliged.
The Logitech Circle 2 Camera, available in Wired and Wire-Free models, is a breeze to install. If I can do it, you can do it. It offers a user-friendly mobile and web app a, and is designed for indoor and outdoor use with a 180-degree field of view. It offers motion-triggered video recording, and has some cool features including a time-lapse Day Brief, Person Detection, and custom motion detection zones. My favorite part is that it works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice commands!
I chose to put the Circle 2 Camera in our family room, which has a view of our man cave, dining room, kitchen and entryway. It’s a very central spot. The great thing about Circle 2 is that I can easily move it if I feel like there’s a better spot for it. And if you want, they have additional accessories available such as a Window, Plug and Magnetic Mount, too. I need to purchase another one and place it on our patio, since it works just as great outdoors and, I can display it pretty much anywhere I want!
Like I said previously, the installation is quick and easy. I downloaded the app, plugged in the camera, and tapped ‘Setup’ in the app. The camera immediately emitted a chime and the LED went from flashing blue to solid blue. I named the camera, selected my Wi-Fi network from the list and entered my password, hit ‘Connect’, and was up and running within seconds. I was then prompted to create an account using my email and a password. SO EASY!
You can literally check on your home from the mobile or web app at any moment of the day. If I’m away and want to check in on my dog or the family, I can open up the app and see what he’s doing. It’s brilliant!
Having the Circle 2 home security camera has already made us feel safe and sound. Overall, Circle 2 seems like a great way for anyone who’s worried about their home or loved ones to have a bit more peace of mind and security.
