When upgrading your home to smart tech, you need to make compromises and by that I mean you need to select whether you are going to let one of the big three run your home – Apple, Google or Amazon. Each come with their pros and cons.
Logitech has created a doorbell that will be compete with the likes of a Ring doorbell and the Google Nest Hello doorbell. Called the Circle View doorbell, it is compatible exclusively with Apple Homekit.
The Circle View doorbell uses your Apple photos to determine who is at the door, alerting you on any of your Apple devices. The camera’s 160° diagonal field-of-view means you can see who’s at the door whether they’re short, tall, or just a package on the ground. Along with colour night vision to ensure that you can still see who is at the door late at night.
If you already have a wired doorbell, the Logitech Circle View doorbell replaces your existing wired doorbell on a low voltage transformer and works with most indoor chimes, meaning you can just ‘plug and play’.
Logitech Circle View Doorbell is available for $199.99 for the self-installation option and $299.99 for pre-installed.
