Logitech's weather-resistant Circle View camera offers a wide 180-degree field of view that makes it easy to keep an eye on large areas of your home — inside or out. The camera has glass optics and a high-quality image sensor with wide dynamic range, so you get crystal-clear HD footage in all kinds of light. And if there's no light at all, the camera still has you covered with infrared LEDs that allow it to see up to 15 feet away in the dark.
The Logitech Circle View has a modern, decor-friendly design.
Easy to set up
The camera was specially designed to work with Apple HomeKit, so there's no need to download any extra apps or create new login details. You simply plug the camera's tethered, 10-foot cable into the provided indoor USB power supply, open the Apple Home app on your iPhone® or iPad®, and scan the HomeKit code on your camera.
Secure to use
Your HomePod, iPad, or Apple TV acts as your HomeKit hub. Once footage is captured, your Apple device analyzes the video and then encrypts it locally before sending it to iCloud where it's securely stored.
There are also some comforting privacy features on the camera itself, including a button on the back that turns off video and audio capture. You can also shield yourself from view by tilting the camera face down.

More details on the Logitech® Circle View Camera
Overview: The Logitech Circle View (961-000489) is an indoor/outdoor security camera with an ultra wide-angle lens that captures more area than many other surveillance cameras. This small, lightweight camera can be mounted just about anywhere. Circle View works on your home Wi-Fi network (802.11 b/g/n - 2.4GHz), and is optimized to work with Apple HomeKit, which allows you to view live or recorded video on your iPhone or iPad. It has an attached 10' power cable with a USB Type A connector that plugs into the included USB power port. Dimensions: Width 2.656", Height 3.394", Depth 2.95"; Weight: 9.1 ounces (incl. cable)
Camera: The Circle View wired security camera is equipped with a glass lens that provides an ultra-wide 180° field of view. The camera live-streams Logitech's TrueView 1080p video. Its wide dynamic range lets you see more detail in high contrast videos. Images are clear in sunlight or shadows. Two built-in infrared LEDs give the camera night vision out to 15 feet. The camera includes a microphone and speaker, enabling two-way talk between your camera and your iPhone or iPad.
Privacy Features: The Circle View camera has privacy features built into its hardware and software. Whenever you need privacy, you can simply tilt the camera down to shield yourself from view (audio pickup continues). The camera also has a rear panel power button that you can turn off both video and audio. The Home app offers more advanced privacy features, such as end-to-end encryption, automatic recording, and in-home video analysis.
Apple HomeKit-enabled: Apple HomeKit Secure Video provides excellent video quality and end-to-end encryption for secure video. Videos are securely stored in a supported iCloud+ account for 10 days, and can be viewed in the Home app on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Setup of your camera is simple. With the Apple Home app on your iPhone or iPad, you just need to scan the unique setup code.
Note: Apple HomeKit Secure Video requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 13.2 or later; the Home app set up on your device with the same Apple ID that you use for iCloud+; a home hub set up on an iPad, HomePod, or Apple TV; a supported iCloud+ storage plan, and one or more HomeKit Secure Video cameras (such as the Circle View).

You can view live video through the app with 2-way audio. Apple HomeKit Secure Video keeps your recordings secure, while letting you share the videos with others. The Home app works with mobile Apple devices running iOS 10.0 or later. To store your videos, you will need an active subscription to iCloud+. The 50GB plan ($0.99/month) supports one camera, while the 200GB plan ($2.99/month) supports 5 cameras. The 2TB plan ($9.99/month) will let you add an unlimited number of cameras.
Mounting Options: The Circle View has an integrated base that lets you place the camera on a shelf or tabletop. It comes with a simple bracket for mounting the camera on a wall or inverted on a ceiling. You can aim the camera in many directions by turning the camera base, tilting the camera head up or down, or rotate the camera head to get the proper orientation.
