Logi Circle review

 

Logi's $200/£159 Wi-Fi-enabled Circle Home Connection Camera shares similarities with DIY HD cameras like the Nest Cam Indoor , the Netgear Arlo Pro and the Canary Flex .

Setting up the Logi Circle Home Connection Camera takes less than 5 minutes and the app is easy to navigate.

Its people detection feature was somewhat inconsistent. The rechargeable battery lasts only a few hours and takes even longer to recharge. The Logi Circle doesn't work with any other Logitech products or products from other smart home manufacturers.

The Logi Circle is a decent live-streaming camera, but rechargeable models like Canary Flex and Netgear Arlo Pro do a better job.

Logi Circle

 

The Logi Circle is an attractive and easy-to-use home security camera that lacks a few of the more powerful scheduling and programming features of its competition.

Easy to set up and mount anywhere. Simple app and Web portal. Battery-powered option. Two-way voice communication.

No way to configure alerts or recordings. Battery doesn't last long enough for realistic wireless use.

Performance and Conclusions The Circle's hardware is capable of handling 1080p video, and as of a recent update can now stream and capture video in that resolution (it was limited by software to 720p at launch). Video quality is very good, though the...

Logitech Circle review: This camera puts more emphasis on 'home' than 'security'

 

The webcam manufacturer's first security camera feels like a work in progress.

Day Briefs provide a digest of recordings ; Setup is a snap ; App is dead simple to use

Relies on algorithms to determine what and when to record ; Lacks customization options ; Short-lived backup battery

Logitech has a long history in the home security-camera market, but this product has more in common with a webcam than its competition.

Logitech Circle review: This camera puts more emphasis on 'home' than 'security'

 

The webcam manufacturer's first security camera feels like a work in progress.

Day Briefs provide a digest of recordings ; Setup is a snap ; App is dead simple to use

Relies on algorithms to determine what and when to record ; Lacks customization options ; Short-lived backup battery

The Circle offers decent video quality, flexible mounting options, and a simple app if you’re willing to pay a premium for a nanny/puppy cam. But the lack of customization options hamstring it as a security camera. A Logitech representative assured me...

Logi Circle Review – WiFi camera with a hit of hyperlapse

 

Logitech said it wanted its Logi brand to be more friendly than traditional computer peripherals, and the Circle home camera certainly fits the bill. A cutesy robot's eyeball of a WiFi-connected webcam, it aims to one-up Nest Camera courtesy of an...

Circle clearly has some lingering raw edges, but the good news is that Logi could – and indeed intends to – address them with software updates. With more control over clips and better sharing options I’d feel a lot more confident in recommending it....

Logi Circle Home Connection Camera

 

For that reason, it wouldn't be fair to compare Circle to Icontrol's Piper NV , Homeboy or even free security camera apps like the Android -specific Salient Eye -- all options with clear security features, like built-in sirens and arm/disarm modes....

Setting up the Logi Circle Home Connection Camera takes less than 5 minutes and the app is easy to navigate.

There's little to no customization of features and settings within the app and no third-party partnerships. The full battery lasts less than 2 hours and takes even longer to recharge.

The Logi Circle is a decent webcam, but models like Nest Cam do a significantly better job for the same price.

Logi Circle Review

 

The modern day security camera has evolved into more than just giving you peace of mind, since many of them go beyond just for security purposes. Many of them, in fact, are the brains of the smart connected home – allowing them to remotely turn on/off...

Captures all the important moments you might miss ; Day Brief produces a short time-lapse of the day ; Mobile thanks to rechargeable battery ; Long battery life

Content is saved only within a 24-hour period ; Fine details are tough to make out with its 720p footage

Pricing for the Logi Circle is set at $199.99, hitting the same price point as many of the other, popular security cameras that are on the market – such as Dropcam or Piper. Without question, the Logi Circle is different type of security camera,...

The Best Wireless Indoor Home Security Camera

 

We spent more than two months testing 15 different indoor Wi-Fi home security cameras, and we think the Logitech Logi Circle is the best choice for most people.

As noted, which camera you end up choosing is a matter of matching each one’s unique capabilities and pricing to your usage needs. There is no one-size-fits-all “best” option. Logitech’s Logi Circle is missing some key functions but is the easiest to...

Logitech Circle Review

 

By far the most convenient camera for reviewing everything that has happened in the past 24 hours

Great video quality, good real time viewing, convenient day brief time lapse feature

Fisheye distortion slightly more noticeable than on other cameras

The Logitech Circle is a high performing, well designed security camera that offers a convenient time lapse day brief feature. As it's an all around performer, we doubt anyone would be disappointed if they get the Circle.
