The Logitech Circle 2 Wired home security camera is now compatible with Apple HomeKit. The announcement comes four months after the product was first introduced.
Providing “customizable DIY security where you need it,” the Logitech Circle 2 Wired now works through the Apple Home app. In doing so, you can enjoy access to live camera video on your iPhone and iPad, and notifications to your lock screen on iPhone/iPad or Apple Watch.
According to Vincent Borel, director of new ventures at Logitech:
HomeKit truly complements the simplicity of setting up and using Circle 2. We’re focused on building experiences that let you easily and securely control your Circle 2 camera, while expanding its capabilities. Whether you’re checking on the kids from another room with your iPad or looking for extra peace of mind while you’re away, HomeKit makes Circle 2 work even smarter for you and your family.
The Logitech Circle 2 Wired includes unlimited 1080p HD streaming, night vision, an 180-degree wide-angle lens, and two-way talk and listen. With the camera, you’ll receive 24 hours of free, secure cloud storage. Monthly premium plans are available that can increase this time up to 31 days.
Besides Apple HomeKit, the Circle 2 Wired also works with Amazon Alexa and Logitech’s POP Smart Button.
Priced at $179.99, the Circle 2 Wired is available now at retailers nationwide and will be in Apple stores and Apple.com, starting in October in the U.S. and Europe. The Circle 2 Window Mount will also be available in Apple stores for $39.95. The Circle 2 Plug Mount will be available on Apple.com for $29.95.
