Logi's Circle camera misses the markThe Logi Circle Home Connection Camera has too few features to be a truly useful smart home accessory.
This $200 Logi Circle home connection camera is one of Logitech's first devices to fall under its rebranded Logi name. Here's what I like about this camera. It has a really straightforward app. The 720p is crisp and about on par with a Connect [UNKNOWN] performance and you can easily scroll through your activity feed to see your recorded footage. But this camera's battery power is pretty bad. I tested it on more than one occasion. And with even light use, it tended to last less than two hours and take even longer than that to recharge so as far as a functional, portable, rechargeable camera, this one really really fell short and part of the reason that this app is so easy to navigate in the first place is because it has almost no Features. You can't set activity zones, there's no ability to customize motion sensitivity. There's basically nothing in the app at all. In fact, Logee kind of hijacks the whole user experience from you basically deciding what's important and what isn't and controlling everything on your behalf So some people that are really new to DIY might like that. It's basically just a watered-down version of a web cam. But other people who are looking for more advanced customization and control or even third-party [UNKNOWN] Migration just won't find it with Logi Circle. There are a lot of ways that this camera falls short, and you can read all about it in my full review on cnet.com. I'm Megan Wollerton for cnet Appliances.
