The Good: Setting up the Logi Circle Home Connection Camera takes less than 5 minutes and the app is easy to navigate. The Bad: Its people detection feature was somewhat inconsistent. The rechargeable battery lasts only a few hours and takes even longer to recharge. The Logi Circle doesn't work with any other Logitech products or products from other smart home manufacturers. The Bottom Line: The Logi Circle is a decent live-streaming camera, but rechargeable models like Canary Flex and Netgear Arlo Pro do a better job. Logi's $200\/\u00a3159 Wi-Fi-enabled Circle Home Connection Camera shares similarities with DIY like the , the Netgear Arlo Pro and the Canary Flex. \t \tWhile the Circle offers 1080p HD live streaming, a rechargeable battery and custom alerts when a person walks by (only available with the fee-based Circle Safe Premium service), the Circle doesn't actually stand out in any significant way. \tIts person detection function got it wrong on more than one occasion, it has limited battery life and it doesn't support any integrations. I'd skip Circle and take a look at its competitors instead.Editors' note, January 20, 2017: This review has been updated to include details on the Logi Circle's person detection feature and additional software updates.Joining Logi's Circle \tLogi Circle is an endearingly pint-size Wi-Fi- and battery-powered 1080p HD cam, available in either white or black, that you can stick anywhere you want (indoors) for 24-7 access to a live video stream. \tIts default battery power mode is supposed to last for up to 3 hours. In power-save mode, its battery is supposed to last for up to 12 hours -- but that's with diminished features and resolution. My experience was a little different. I tested a fully-charged Circle's battery life three times using its default power mode. \tThe first time, the camera lasted for roughly 2 hours streaming at 1080p during a busy time at the office with a lot of motion and motion-related push alerts. The second time, the camera lasted for about 4 hours (also streaming at 1080p) during a time with less foot traffic and fewer motion alerts. The third time, the Circle lasted about six hours streaming at 720p -- three of those hours were busy and the rest were relatively quiet. \tYes, the camera will last longer if you stream at a lower resolution and if there's less activity. Ultimately, though, it doesn't last very long. Logitech tells me this is all by design, but I still question the value of a battery with such a limited charge capacity. \tThe related Android and iOS apps act as your main point of access to the camera both during the initial setup and any time you want to watch current and past footage or enable\/disable features like push notifications, night-vision and power-save mode. \t \tThe app is very straightforward and the configuration process keeps things simple with a step-by-step tutorial that walks you through the entire installation. Installation includes charging the cam on its "charging ring," which sits flat on any surface. You'll also be asked to enter your local Wi-Fi network details. Then, the app will prompt you to create an account with your email and a password -- the entire process took two minutes. \tIf you need to switch Wi-Fi networks, you'll have to delete and reset your entire camera. That's pretty inconvenient, but it isn't something you'll have to do very often, if at all.
