Just a quick review of one feature of Logitech’s latest Circle View with HomeKit Secure Video (HSV).
We picked up one of these a couple of weeks ago—the plan was to try to find a private, reliable solution for a baby monitor that can be used to capture cute moments/share with extended fam/etc., without paying exorbitant amounts + a subscription for it.
The camera works as expected. Reasonable picture quality, good-enough sound quality.
But HSV is so cool. And, unexpectedly, it works on the Apple Watch.
We were expecting to have to dial a device into ‘baby monitor mode’ and leave it up while kiddo is sleeping—and we’ll probably still do this most of the time—but we can actually pull it up on our watch and see and hear whatever’s happening from the camera’s perspective. Super neat!!
I would love a way to record video manually (currently it only triggers via automatic recognition of movement and a few other options), but otherwise it seems like a sweet device.
