Logitech Updates Alert Line with Indoor Night Vision Camera

Posted in Low Cost with tags , , , , , , , , on May 10, 2012 by zackduncan

Logitech Alert 750nLogitech has announced that it is expanding its line of Alert HD security cameras by adding a new indoor model that comes complete with night-vision capabilities. Logitech’s Alert line takes advantage of the HomePlug AV networking standard, which allows data and power to run over common electrical cables.

This may seem like a problem, as AC outlets aren’t located everywhere in a building. If that is a problem then Logitech also offers SKUs that offer Power over Ethernet (PoE). These models allow you to simply run a CAT5 cable to each camera and install an inline power injector at the router. The announcement made by Logitech made no mention of Power over Ethernet for the new indoor camera, though it is a strong possibility that it will be included.

Logitech’s Alert line also delivers high-resolution 720p video which streams from multiple cameras and can be viewed simultaneously on a local networked PC that is running Logitech’s Alert Commander software. In addition to that, each camera is also equipped with a 16-zone motion detector which can trigger the camera to record a video clip when objects move in front of them.

If triggered, the camera can send an email or text alert to you with the video clip attached. Recordings are then stored on the actual cameras thanks to a 2GB MicroSD  card, which is doubly beneficial as it means that your local PC won’t have to be constantly running. Also, if you are a DropBox subscriber, then you can elect to copy the recordings to their storage in the cloud.

You can also review live camera feeds remotely from any computer or mobile device that has an internet connection with Logitech offering free remote-viewing apps for Android, BlackBerry and iOS devices. In addition, Logitech’s Alert Web and Mobile Commander service provides the same viewing and control capabilities available from the software running on a local PC, though it comes with an $80 per year subscription.

Logitech will be offering the new Alert 750n Indoor Master System, which comes with the camera and the Alert Commander software, for $300. If you already have the Alert Commander system and just want the new camera then you can get that for $230. The outdoor system is available now for $350 with standalone cameras available for $280.
