Logitech Indoor Add-On Security Camera

Logitech Indoor Add-On Security Camera


Alright, so let’s say that you’re one of these paranoid types and you’re very, very afraid of someone attacking you. You need to know what’s happening all the time in your house. Or, you got a lot of kids, you wanna keep an eye on them from, let’s say, your kitchen, or your computer, from anywhere. Maybe you have a business that you want to secure and you want to be able to check the progress of your business or what’s happening there from anywhere in the world using the internet. And you want to set all this up but you don’t want to use the expensive and difficult to configure IP webcams. Check this out. This is the WiLife system from Logitech. This is one of the add-ons for the WiLife system. So, pretty much, if you have the WiLife kit, you can pretty much add up to six cameras in total and this is one of them. And this is their basic indoor camera, which is not basic at all because it’s got a bunch of great features. And most importantly, the coolest thing about a product like this is usually when you set up IP webcams you gotta do all these settings to your home network, and to your router. You have to have Wi-Fi to begin with. Then you gotta configure the website and how you’re gonna get it on the net. And how you’re gonna record it on your hard drive, and it gets overly complicated very quickly. Logitech has simplified the whole thing. It’s so simple, it’s ridiculous. This thing takes like ten minutes to set up. They say fifteen. I say ten. Pretty much, here’s how it works. Instead of using your Wi-Fi, or an Ethernet cable, or a corded cable, or anything silly like that, they use the electrical system inside your house. So pretty much, it’s gonna run through here and to another plug on the other side of your house that’s gonna plug into your computer and it will transmit all the video through this little tiny box. So you need no network configuration. You know there’s nothing there that will confuse you. You don’t set open ports on your router. None of that garbage. You literally just plug it in and go. Now, you have to have the master system for this. This is just the add-on camera. They have three different add-on cameras. This is the indoor. They have an outdoor version which is water tight. And they also have a spy version, which is hidden inside of a little radio clock. And that one is pretty sneaky. And pretty much you can have up to six in total. They all connect, just with this. And they even come with a bunch of different mounting options. And not only do they provide you with the hardware, but they provide you with amazing software. First of all, you get a WiLife online account, which will let you check up, you know, live video of whatever’s on the cameras from anywhere on the internet. Pretty much you just log in, look at your feed and it’ll show you what’s going on. Also they provide you with software to record all this stuff so you can record it straight to your hard disc drive. You don’t need to worry about where it’s going to. A DVR, or a security box with a DVR attached, none of that stuff. You just literally plug it in, attach the master suite to the master system, to a plug in the wall so you can receive all the signals from all the cameras. And you’re good to go. The suite will take care of automatically recording it to your hardrive. You can do scheduled recording so it will only record from a certain time to a certain time. You can even do motion detection where it will only pretty much start recording when it senses something. So it’s good if you don’t know what’s going on. I don’t know if you saw the video, that little beagle climbing out of the cage on YouTube. It went viral. If you haven’t seen it, go look up “The Great Beagle Escape”, and you know, just like that. You want to catch something that’s interesting, something that, if you want to catch wildlife, it’s great for that, because it’s gonna just detect it, it’s gonna turn on only when there is motion, that won’t fill up your hard drive. Another thing that’s really cool is actually the fact that they give you playback tools and search tools so if you want to go through like four days of footage, they have these really cool tools in the software that let you go through all that footage no problem and very quickly and simply just to review stuff like that. Another thing is that you can do Email and instant message warnings or notifications so whenever the motion detection goes off and starts recording video, it will automatically, pretty much send you a text message or shoot you an Email telling you, hey, it just went off, go to the website, check it out, something is happening. So that’s also very, very cool. So, if you want to build a budget security system. Not even budget. I mean, this is very, very high quality stuff, but it’s not as expensive as getting a bunch of IP webcams and then configuring a router and doing all this work. It’s actually going to be cheaper and simpler to just go straight away with this. And you can add as many as you want, up to six. Well, not as many as you want, up to six. So you can do three indoors, and three outdoors. Or, one spy, two indoors, and two outdoors, or whatever you want. It’s really up to you. You can pretty much mount it. As you can see, it comes in this little stand. That can pretty much go just about anywhere, on a desk. You can point it out a window if you don’t want to get the outdoor one. Also it comes with this bracket here too, which pretty much would go up against a wall. And this swivels in whatever direction you want, so you can point it in the direction that’s appropriate. And you also get a suction cup. This thing is actually really really light. So if you were to screw this in here you can actually just suction it to a window, if you’d like. And that wouldn’t be a problem. And another good thing is that they have this on the front so you can suction it to the front to put it up against the glass facing out. Okay? So that’s genius, genius. Great design. Like that a lot. And then as far as, you know, setting it to the computer, again, there’s nothing easier than just plugging it in and not having to worry about anything else. So, definetely, if you are interested in setting up a security system, or you just want to monitor something, I monitor my salt water fish tank with this, so I can check and make sure nothing’s wrong, check this out. It’s the WiLife system from Logitech and this is the Indoor Add-On Camera. Okay? Got that? You need the master system and then these are the add-ons. And there’s indoor, outdoor and spy. This is the indoor. Available from LogiTech right now. If you have any questions Email me. I will see you guys next time. The LogiTech WiLife Indoor Camera Add-On kit is available from the retailers listed here: Or for more information you can type in L23-8110 into any major search engine. For ComputerTV, I’m Albert.

    The wall plug only works if the place you want to place it is on the same circuit breaker as your computer/base station.
