Logi Circle live streams your home to your mobile

A camera for keeping in touch

Ever find yourself wishing you could spend more time at home?  Logi Circle is a newly launched product that aims to provide the next best thing – a live feed of what’s going on back there.

The Logi Circle (which is being marketed under Logitech’s new shorter brand name) is something of a cross between a home security camera and a webcam.

If everyone’s away from home and you’re worried about someone pinching your telly, you can use it to keep tabs on your stuff. Or, if you’re stuck at the office and missing the kids, you can instead tune in to a video stream of them playing.

The Circle connects to your iOS or Android device via a free app, which enables a number of additional features. Using the streaming option, you can view live HD video directly on your smartphone. Or – if you’re pushed for time – hit the button to create a 30-second ‘Daily Brief’ – a montage of your home’s most significant moments of the day. Logitech calls the technology that powers this ‘Scene Intuition’ – filtering software that learns your home life patterns and cuts out all the boring bits to just show the day’s most interesting moments.

And if you want to connect, you can do so. The 2-Way Talk & Listen mode enables you to use the Circle as a video chat tool.

“There’s a new movement in home monitoring,” said Vincent Borel, director of new ventures at Logitech. “The nature of today’s connected world is changing the way people interact with cameras in the home.

“Video surveillance is no longer just about security, it’s about staying connected with our homes and loved ones. Planned or unplanned, magic moments happen in our homes every day and we designed the Logi Circle as your destination for capturing and discovering them no matter where you are or what you’re doing.”

The Logi Circle is on sale now for £159.95.
