While we all thought HomeKit manufacturers would be slowing down ahead of the Christmas break. It looks like we may see a HomeKit Secure Video doorbell hitting the market very soon. The Logitech Circle View wired video doorbell camera has been spotted on Apple.com
The Circle View Doorbell is a video doorbell features Best-in-class Logitech TrueView™ video with a 160° field of view, with HDR. The HomeKit doorbell also features colour night vision to help capture all the details around your door.
The seamless glass face and slim silhouette add a touch of elegance and intelligence to your entrance. It also features a glowing light on the front that illuminates when someone approaches. Logitech has also made the video doorbell waterproof.
The Circle View doorbell Works with your current wired doorbell systems and chime modules. It Comes with everything you need, including multiple mounting options, Chime Kit, and wiring to connect to a wired doorbell system (8-24V AC 10 VA or higher).
As with the Logitech Circle View outdoor camera, the Circle View video doorbell is developed exclusively for HomeKit and HomeKit Secure Video. Which means the Circle View Doorbell supports HomeKit Secure Video for secure end-to-end encryption. Including a 10-day recording history, custom Activity Zones. All of this is possible if you are using a HomeKit hub and the relevant iCloud account.
As of now, it looks like the Logitech Circle View Wired video doorbell is only available at Apple.com priced at $199. However, Logitech has yet to confirm the doorbells existence on its own website. I have reached out to Logitech for details and I will update this article when they respond.
