Logitech Circle 2 review

 

The Logitech Circle 2 adds effortless security to your home.

Easy to set up ; Works with Amazon/Apple/Google hubs ; “Day Brief” shows time-lapse of full day ; Unique mounting options available ; Weatherproof

Some features require paid membership ; Included mount can be a bit finicky ; IR night vision could be better

With a rich feature set, good design, fantastic app, and simple mounting solutions, the Logitech Circle 2 is impossible to ignore. We particularly like the Day Brief feature, which can be a fun (or funny) way to review all the activity that went on in...

Logitech Circle 2 review

 

Logitech's $180 Circle 2 wired security camera is a significant improvement over its first-gen model , but it's also very different. Instead of a rechargeable battery, this new model requires an adapter for power. It's also rated for indoor and outdoor...

Logitech's $180 Circle 2 wired security camera is easy to set up and works with Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit and Google Assistant for a wide variety of smart home/voice control applications.

While this camera can be used indoors or out, it relies on an adapter for power (rather than a rechargeable battery). Logitech does sell a wire-free Circle 2 camera separately for $200.

The Logitech Circle 2 is versatile, responsive and easy to use, but you should only buy this wired model if you don't mind keeping your cam close to a wall outlet.

Logi Circle 2

 

The Logi Circle 2 is a solid wireless home security camera with a wide angle lens that can be used indoors or outdoors.

Indoor and outdoor use. Completely wireless. Wide viewing angle. Two-way audio. Motion-triggered video recording. Works with Alexa and Google Assistant.

Premium features require a subscription. Does not support IFTTT. Noticeable barrel distortion. Lacks audio detection. Long lag during wake-up.

With the Logi Circle 2, you get motion alerts and a wide-angle view of your home from anywhere. Setup is a snap and the mobile and web apps are intuitive, but you have to pay for a Premium subscription to use the Motion Zones, Person Alert, and Custom...

Logi Circle 2 Review: Weatherproof camera undercuts Nest

 

When it comes to connected home security cameras, Logitech hasn't given up on weening you off your Nest addition. The Logi Camera 2 takes a more security-centric view than its predecessor, with the benefit of more capable software, smart home...

Flexible selection of mounts ; Weatherproofing for indoor or outdoor use ; Wide angle lens ; Useful daily summary video ; 24hr video storage

No local storage option ; Add-on mounts cost extra ; Night vision illumination isn't as even as Nest

Logitech Circle 2 review: Second time's the charm for this wired home security camera

 

The Circle 2 improves on its predecessor is every way, but you have to spend a little extra to unlock all its goodness.

Motion detection accurately recognizes humans ; Cutomizable motion zones allow for more accurate detection areas ; Event and alert fiters help you manage notifications

Advanced features require premium cloud subscription

It’s a little disappointing that you have to pay for a premium cloud subscription to take advantage of what are often standard features—other cameras like the and include motion zones and smart motion detection in the their price—but whether that’s a...

Logitech Circle 2 Wireless Review

 

Day brief feature and the flexibility provided by the internal battery make this great for people that want to keep a close eye on anything in their home

Great video quality, good real time viewing, convenient day brief time lapse feature, very wide field of view

More fisheye distortion than other cameras

Logitech Circle 2 Review: Innovative Features, Lackluster Video

 

Logitech has certainly put a lot more thought into this device than the company did with the original Circle camera. However, Logitech needs to improve night mode image quality, add push notifications to its software, and give all users access to...

Clean, intuitive software ; Convenient filtering of alerts ; Up to five activity zones that may be included or excluded from alerts ; Effective person-detection ; Support for Apple Home Kit

Person alerts and activity zones for only Premium cloud subscribers ; Image quality only poor to fair ; No scheduling ; Push notifications only for iOS

The Logitech Circle 2 has innovative, easy-to-use software and great person-detection. However, the camera's image quality is disappointing and its functionality is limited.

Review: Logitech's Circle 2 Wired is the best camera with Apple's HomeKit - for now

 

Logitech's Circle 2 has been available for a little while, but only recently did the company add HomeKit support to the Wired model -- making it just one of two security cameras in the entire smarthome market with that integration. The results are...

If you want an iPhone- or iPad-connected security camera and you're going the HomeKit route, the Circle 2 is easily the best choice at the moment. The only other HomeKit-compatible camera is the D-Link Omna 180 Cam HD, which records solely to microSD...

Logitech Circle 2 is a great surveillance system, but for a price

 

Accessible home monitoring should be more than just being able to buy a security camera. It means having a packaged software experience, where you should be able to link cameras over a secure cloud connection while mounting them on walls, glass or the...

Costly or not, Logitech has a great home security tool here. If you pay the premium for software and accessories, there’s not much you won’t be able to keep a visual on. Honestly, a lone wired Circle 2 unit is enough for basic monitoring.
