THE WIN­NER Log­itech Cir­cle 2

Plenty of stor­age com­bined with plenty of fea­tures

Mac Format - - APPLE CHOICE -

The Nest Cam IQ is ex­pen­sive at £299, al­though its 4K sen­sor does pro­vide ex­cel­lent im­age qual­ity and use­ful fea­tures such as track-and-zoom. How­ever, Nest’s re­liance on paid sub­scrip­tions for online stor­age and other ad­vanced fea­tures can be costly in the long run.

Net­gear’s Arlo Pro is the same price, but it pro­vides a weath­er­proof cam­era, one week of free stor­age and a su­per-loud siren for ex­tra pro­tec­tion. At £200, D-Link’s Omna stands out with its HomeKit sup­port, al­though that re­ally isn’t es­sen­tial for a se­cu­rity cam­era at the mo­ment. At that price, Ne­tatmo’s fac­ere­cog­ni­tion fea­tures may prove more use­ful, es­pe­cially for hec­tic fam­ily homes.

The most af­ford­able cam­eras are clearly the Nokia Home and Log­itech Cir­cle at £170. Some peo­ple will like the Home’s air qual­ity fea­tures, but the Cir­cle 2 is more ver­sa­tile, with a weath­er­proof de­sign that you can use in­doors or out­doors, and a well de­signed app that to­gether make it one of the most ver­sa­tile se­cu­rity cam­eras cur­rently avail­able.
