"Circle 2 gives people just that - you can place the camera wherever you need it, inside or out, and rest assured that you'll be alerted of any changes in your home while you're away."
LAUSANNE, Switzerland & NEWARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Logitech (SIX:LOGN) (NASDAQ:LOGI) today announced Circle 2—an indoor/outdoor home security camera that can be placed anywhere you want. Whether you’re checking to see who’s at the door or in your living room, Circle 2 helps you keep an eye on all parts of your home. Simply place Circle 2 in your desired location, connect it with the Logi Circle app, and let the camera do the rest.
“People want the peace of mind that comes with a simple security solution,” said Vincent Borel, director of new ventures at Logitech. “Circle 2 gives people just that - you can place the camera wherever you need it, inside or out, and rest assured that you'll be alerted of any changes in your home while you're away.”
Circle 2 is an evolution of Logitech’s original Logi Circle cam featuring a much more versatile design, weatherproof solution, various mounts and accessories, an updated companion mobile (iOS/Android) and web app to keep you connected at all times, as well as today’s most popular smart home integrations. Two models are available, Wired and Wire-Free, which give you the freedom to position the Circle 2 camera wherever you want. No matter where you place it, Circle 2 provides a crafted home security experience that will continue to evolve with your needs.
Taking your home security even further, Circle 2 works with a selection of mounts and accessories that allow you to customize your experience.
Compatible Mounts and Accessories
- Circle 2 Window Mount - See more of what's happening outside, from the inside. Simply attach the Window Mount to the camera and place it on any window pane to see outdoors.
- Circle 2 Plug Mount - The Plug Mount lets you watch over the home from any wall outlet – in the kitchen, garage, or even down low to see your pet.
- Circle 2 Weatherproof Extension - The Weatherproof Extension lets your Circle 2 Wired Camera reach even further, both indoors and outdoors. Its Weatherproof Case ensures your cables are safe from outside weather conditions.
- Circle 2 Rechargeable Battery - A backup Rechargeable Battery (lasts up to 3 months) so you can quickly swap out the Circle 2 Wire-Free Camera battery while the other is charging.
Circle 2 works with many smart home platforms to simplify your experience even more. Circle 2 will support Apple HomeKit soon with a software update. Use the power of your own voice with Amazon Alexa through a custom skill to control key settings and start recordings. Circle 2 also works with Logitech’s own POP Smart Button to easily control your camera with just a press of a button. The Amazon Alexa and Logitech POP integrations also work with Logi Circle by updating the respective apps, when available.
