See and hear what's happening in and around your home — from anywhere

The terms "affordable", "easy setup" and "user-friendly" are rarely applied to home security camera systems, but Logitech changes all of that with the Alert 750e. This system comes with everything you need to monitor a live security feed and to make recordings from one included outdoor camera. Plus the system lets you add and simultaneously monitor up to five more indoor or outdoor cameras, for greater coverage throughout your home.

Setup in three easy steps

First, load the included software onto your Windows®-based networked home computer and follow the directions on the setup wizard. Next, connect the included Logitech HomePlug™ adapter to an outlet and your network router. Finally, place the included camera in the area you want to monitor and plug it in to an outlet. The system uses your home's electrical wiring for crystal-clear signal transmission. No Wi-Fi® hassles, IP address settings or router re-starts required.

Free apps for anytime live access

The free Logitech Alert Web Viewer lets you watch real-time HD-quality security feeds of your home from anywhere. You can view it on a home computer, or a remote computer connected to the Internet. Add free apps for your iPad®, iPhone®, iPod touch®, or Android™ or BlackBerry® smartphone to watch and listen right on your mobile device. You can even set the system up for motion-detection recording, and to send you email and text alerts when movement activates the camera. Best of all, this is a do-it-yourself system that requires no monitoring service subscriptions or fees.

    Features

    Overview: The Logitech Alert 750e Outdoor Master System is a weatherproof, outdoor video security system, featuring a night vision camera and home network compatibility. The system includes powerful software that allows you to monitor the system live on your computer or from anywhere on a free, secure website. You can also record, store, and play back video on your PC or the included microSD card. Up to six indoor or outdoor cameras can be used in this master system.

    Camera: The Logitech Alert outdoor camera can provide HD-quality video security (960 x 720 @ 15 fps), even in the dark. The camera has a 130° viewing angle for wide angle recording. With built-in infrared night vision, the camera makes it easier to recognize people or other objects in low light. It also has a built-in microphone so you can monitor and record audio with the video (see note below). The camera is weatherproof (ISO 60529 IP55 rated), and is recommended for operation in temperature extremes from -22°F to 120°F. The camera has a standard 1/4"-20 tripod thread on the top and bottom for mounting. Hardware is included for mounting the camera on a wall or ceiling, on a post, or under a soffit.

    Note: Be sure to comply with the laws in your state or locality regarding recording audio along with the video.

    Easy Setup: The Logitech Alert 750e Outdoor Master System can be installed using a simple 3-step procedure: install the supplied Logitech Alert Commander software, connect the Network Adapter to your home network, and plug in your camera. Because the system uses HomePlug networking, there's no need to install new wiring. HomePlug networking uses your existing electrical wiring and outlets to connect your cameras to your network and transmit video securely. You can easily expand the system with up to six cameras, including the 700e outdoor camera (item # 596700E) and 700i indoor camera (596700I).

    Logitech Alert Commander: Included with the system is the powerful Logitech Alert Commander software. The software gives you the option of monitoring the system on your PC in Live Mode, or by recording video for later viewing, either on your computer's hard drive or on the camera's built-in microSD card. The Alert Commander software lets you configure and control the system, display between one and six video windows, and select from four viewing modes.

    Free Remote Monitoring: The Logitech Alert Commander software includes programs that allow you to see live video from your cameras from an internet-connected computer (Web Commander), or through a free app for your iPhone, Android, or Blackberry mobile device (Mobile Commander).

    Premium Service Upgrade: The Web and Mobile Commander Premium Service is a subscription-based upgrade that allows you to manage your Logitech Alert system remotely over the Internet or from your smartphone. For $79.95 per year, you can search and play recorded video that is stored on your camera's DVR. This allows you to quickly review the event that triggered an alert, or simply see what's been going on all day. You can also change motion zones, turn motion alerts on/off, add recipients to email alerts, adjust the sensitivity of the audio, and pan or zoom your cameras for a closer look. If you have multiple sites, they can all be controlled remotely from a single subscription.

    microSD Card: The camera records video to a microSD card, even when your PC is turned off. The supplied 2 GB card gives you enough space for up to a week of video and audio. Larger capacity cards, up to 32 GB, can record up to several months worth of video and audio. When you turn on your computer and connect to the network, the recorded video can be backed up to your hard drive. An SD card adapter is included so you can use a card reader or insert the card directly into your computer.

    Motion Detection Zones: The Alert Commander software allows you to set up motion detection zones on the viewable video, typically around windows and doors. When movement is detected in any of the detection zones, the camera will automatically record the action. Up to 16 motion detection zones can be specified for a single view.

    Alerts: You can set up alerts that will automatically notify you whenever a camera detects motion. Notifications can be sent to an email address or to your mobile phone.

    Digital Pan-Tilt-Zoom: As you monitor the system, you can use keyboard commands to pan left or right, tilt up or down, or zoom in or out to get better detail.

    System Requirements: The Logitech Alert 750e Outdoor Master System operates on a Windows-based computer with the following requirements:

    • Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista, or Windows 7
    • 2 GHz or faster processor
    • At least 1 GB RAM

    Very nice camera

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I did a lot of research and spoke to a coworker who had a Logitech camera he used inside his home. He showed me all the features and I went ahead and purchased this outdoor model to monitor a porch area. Setup was very plug and play: clear instructions, one minor note is that it's best to use an Ethernet connected PC to set up but after that wireless is fine. Picture quality, motion masking and alert settings are very good. I purchased from Crutchfield due to their warranty terms and customer service. I'm very pleased with this purchase and would recommend to others.

    Pros: Packaging, instructions, set up, hardware quality, features, durability

    Cons: None so far

    Awesome camera!

    Written By Tyler D. Evans, New York, NY on Tuesday, December 06, 2011

    Great product! I bought Logitech Alert as to replace my old DVR. I wanted something with better video and audio quality and reliable remote connection technology.First I went the cheap way with a Dlink932. That didn't work (bad video quality and like the DVR, the remote access never worked well). I was skeptical about the price but after all it actually delivered a lot more bang for the buck. The set up was a no brainer. In 5 minutes I had both cameras up and running. The coolest thing was to be able to stream both video and audio to my Iphone, Ipad and PCs. With no hassle. Everytime it works! The HD and night vision give a crisp and clear video quality. A plus: Before I needed 3 DVR cameras to cover the entire front of my store. Now I can have an even better/wider coverage using only on single Alert camera plus much better video quality ( I can actually recognize faces), during the day and night (This is REAL Night Vision). I also love the software features. The remote connection is super reliable. Again, I could never figure out how to do that with my DVR. My wife and I both use it all the time to see our kids at home when we are not around. The remote playback feature is also super helpful when you want to see what happened during times you are not at home or in the office. I strongly recommend this if you want the highest quality while saving lots of time and money (and headaches). Thanks Logitech!

    Pros: HD quality video with very sensitive audio! Super easy to install and use! Professional quality night vision! Rugged and modern weatherproof design! Remote connection that you can certainly rely on. Wide angle view to cover more area.

    Cons: I wish I could have more than 6 cameras per location.
