[MUSIC] The $180 Logitech Circle 2 is a major improvement over the company's last gen Circle security camera. Instead of a rechargeable battery, this model is powered by an adapter and it can be used inside or outside in temperature Temperatures ranging from negative 4 to over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The power adapter does limit the Circle 2's mobility a bit but the original Circle camera had very limited battery life and wasn't weatherproofed for outdoor use. If you do want a battery powered camera Logitech also sells a rechargeable version of the Circle 2 for $200 that we plan Planned to test out soon. In terms of technical specks, a circle two has 1080p HD live streaming a wide 180 degree field of view and free twenty-four hour clip storage you can view in the related app. Logitech also offers a free time lapse of your day, so you can see all of the major activity in a condensed clip. This camera is also extremely smart Friendly with support for Amazon Alexa, specifically screen compatible devices like the Fire TV Stick and the Eco Show, it also works with Apple Home Kit and Google Assistant. Signing up for Logitech's optional Cloud service gives you access to 14 or 31 day video clip storage, personal alerts and customizable Motion detection zones. The Circle 2 is a reliable indoor/outdoor security camera that sense alerts in near real time when it detects regular motion or sees a person. If you don't mind that it has to be connected to an adaptor 24/7, the wired Circle 2 camera might be worth your money. [MUSIC]
