Logitech Adds Night-Vision Camera To Alert Line

By John Laposky On May 21 2012 - 4:01am




NEW YORK — Logitech has added an indoor night-vision security camera to its HomePlug-based Alert line of home-security-in-a-box products.

The Logitech Alert 750n indoor master system ships with a 4GB memory card that stores snapshots or video; free software and an app allows remote viewing and email or SMS text alert messaging on any PC, smartphone or tablet.

A plus subscription can be added, for $79 a year, that allows live viewing of the camera and up to five other nor i-series Logitech Alert cameras on the user’s network, as well as viewing archived footage.

The camera records 960 by 720 HD color video at 15 fps and has a 130-degree wide viewing angle. The night vision works in complete darkness -- the company demonstrated the camera in a closed desk drawer -- and the video feed showed a bright black and white image without the green tint or glowing effects of traditional night-vision video.

The camera has motion-triggered recording and can be set up to send notifications to an email address or text account. The user can specify up to 16 motion-detection zones within the frame by clicking and dragging on the frame in the software setup.

The master system retails for $300, and a separate SKU of the night-vision camera is offered as an add-on option, with a $230 retail price.
