Logitech reported that Circle View has significantly improved video recording technology in bright daylight. There is also a hardware button on the rear panel that allows you to disconnect the camera and microphone. Additionally, in conditions of poor visibility, the image quality will remain high, thanks to the two infrared sensors. This ensures good visibility within five meters. Thanks to its wide viewing angles (180 degrees), the camera can single-handedly cover a large area during video monitoring.
Made for Apple devices
It is also worth stating that Logitech has implemented the support for Apple Secure Video functionality in this new Circle View camera. But to use Apple HomeKit Secure Video, you need to upgrade your iCloud storage plan to 200GB. With this, you can watch the footage and live broadcasts in the Apple Home application for iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Logitech Circle View will be available in stores at a price of $160 (Rs. 12,100 approximately). However, it is still unknown if the device will be up for sale in India.
