the win­ner Logi Cir­cle

There’s a se­cu­rity cam­era for ev­ery­one

Mac Format - - APPLE CHOICE -

Choos­ing a win­ner was harder than we thought, with no one cam­era dom­i­nat­ing the rest. Ev­ery cam­era here has fea­tures that will ap­peal to some­one: the Ne­tatmo’s use of in­ter­nal mi­croSD stor­age means you’ll never have to pay a penny in cloud stor­age fees, for ex­am­ple, and its fa­cial de­tec­tion fea­tures might have won it the day, but for the fact we were able to cir­cum­vent them. Se­cu­rity con­scious folk might like the Ca­nary’s ear-split­ting siren, while oth­ers may ap­prove of the Ko­dak’s abil­ity to change view re­motely us­ing its pan-and-tilt cam­era.

If you’re look­ing for a baby mon­i­tor and se­cu­rity cam rolled into one, then the Withings Home HD will prove hard to re­sist. Net­gear’s Arlo Q cam­era looks ugly, but boasts the most gran­u­lar se­cu­rity set­tings of all for those who want fine con­trol, but ul­ti­mately our gaze fell on the Logi Cir­cle. It’s a strong all-rounder, but its killer fea­tures – its porta­bil­ity, dis­creet na­ture and beau­ti­fully sim­ple app – give it the edge.

The Ne­tatmo’s use of in­ter­nal mi­croSD stor­age means you’ll never have to pay a penny in cloud stor­age fees

Un­clip the Logi Cir­cle from its charg­ing sta­tion and you can place it any­where for in­con­spic­u­ous, wire-free sur­veil­lance.
