Logitech Circle 2 Reviews:
Out of all the HomeKit cameras, it is the best IMO. But overall, It’s decent. It disconnects from my network every so often (nothing else disconnects, checking network logs I find no drops at all when the camera disconnects). Also, for some reason (and I’m guessing it’s because of HomeKit) opening the stream takes quite some time to load, both in the Home app and in Logi. I have another 1080p non HomeKit camera and the stream opens almost instantaneously. Be aware tho - HomeKit only accepts 720p stream (at least that’s what I figured out, correct me if I’m wrong).Bottom line - if you’re going for a HomeKit camera, go for the circle.Oh, and a DISCLAIMER: make sure you got the non wireless one! The wireless battery powered one doesn’t work with HomeKit.
I have the original and the 2 wired. For the life of me I don’t get how the 2 is slower in sending notifications than the 1. It takes 2 and sometimes even 5 seconds for it to alert me.Otherwise, image quality is great and the interface is one of the best I’ve ever used. The HomeKit integration with motion sensors are nice, but i get too many notifications when activating it in Home since it doesn’t have any algorithm to differentiate stuff. I’m starting to think majority of ip cameras aren’t really necessary for HomeKit use esp pointed outside. The manufactures own app has a ton of more useful settings rather than just steaming low res vid in the home app.
I love it. It’s purely used when no one is home. It’s plugged into an Eve Energy and an automation turns it on when the last person leaves and off when the first person arrives home.Generally speaking it only captures my cat jumping around but the quality is great, microphone works well, night vision is about 15ft. Can’t fault it for the price you pay.I’m not impressed with the subscription costs tho
I just got Logitech Circle 2, it's great! Any way better subscription pricing than Nest. App is solid. Hardware is nice with good mounting options. Recommended.
