Logitech Unveils Circle View Doorbell, Designed Exclusively for Apple HomeKit

Logitech  announced Circle View Doorbell, the first wired video doorbell developed exclusively for Apple HomeKit. Featuring Face Recognition and Logitech TrueView™ best-in-class video, Circle View Doorbell gives you crisp head-to-toe portrait video from just two feet away, true HDR to handle high-contrast scenes, and color night vision up to six feet away. Circle View Doorbell, compatible with most existing wired doorbell systems and designed to complement homes of every style, also supports HomeKit Secure Video, giving you simple and secure ways to customize your video recordings, notifications, storage, and sharing options. 

With HomeKit Secure Video, a powerful and secure smart home platform available on more than a billion active iOS and iPadOS devices, intelligent detection is done securely and privately on your HomePod, the new HomePod mini, or Apple TV to determine when a person, animal, or vehicle is in the video. You can securely interact with Circle View Doorbell in the Home app or by asking Siri on supported Apple devices.

Face Recognition identifies people you tag in your Photos library or recent visitors captured by your camera or doorbell in the Home app. With Circle View Doorbell, you can use the Home app to be notified when people come to the door and receive smart notifications across your Apple devices — on your iPhone and Apple Watch while you’re away, or even an announcement on Apple TV and HomePod. You can even mute your home’s existing wired chime. Video streams and recordings using HomeKit Secure Video are processed on the home hub device, uploaded to iCloud, and are end-to-end encrypted securely to the Home app. These recordings do not count against your iCloud storage limit for photos, videos, and files.

To help consumers skip the hassle of installation, Logitech has partnered with HelloTech, the leading independent, on-demand installation provider with a nationwide network of thousands of hand-selected experts. Customers also have the option to self-install if comfortable handling power tools and working with electrical systems. Circle View Doorbell supports existing systems powered by 8-24 V AC transformers with 10 VA or higher power.
