Logitech Adds Night-Vision Camera To Alert Line

5/09/2012 10:53:31 AM Eastern

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’s 750n camera’s feed can be viewed on any computer, smartphone or tablet.

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 n- or 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

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.
