Logitech Video Security Cameras Now Available

Secure Your Home: Logitech Video Security Cameras Now Available In Australia and New Zealand for the First Time
Logitech Video-Security Cameras Offer Do-It-Yourself, 15-Minute Setup; Motion-Activated E-Mail Alerts; Free Remote Viewing

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA — 10th September 2008 —  You can help secure your home or small business at a fraction of the cost of traditional video security systems – without configuring a network or running any new wires. Logitech announced the company’s video security cameras – recent additions to Logitech’s portfolio of products for the digital home. The two PC-based security cameras feature do-it-yourself (DIY), 15-minute setup; motion-activated e-mail alerts and free remote viewing on any PC with an Internet connection.

“Logitech is proud to bring its video security family of products to market in Australia and New Zealand,” said George Saad, General Manager for ANZ. “By harnessing the power of digital video, as well as the PC and Internet technology, we’ve made it easier for you to feel peace of mind in your home or at your business.”

The first two Logitech video-security cameras are available as starter packs or add-on cameras. They include the Logitech® Indoor Video Security Master System, the Logitech® Outdoor Video Security Master System, the Logitech® Indoor Add-On Camera and the Logitech® Outdoor Add-On Camera.

Easy Setup Uses HomePlug Technology

To give you maximum convenience, Logitech’s wireless video security system uses innovative HomePlug™ technology, which connects and transmits video data over your home’s existing electrical wiring. As a result, you’ll be up and running in 15 minutes – with no new wires to run and no network configuration. In fact, it only takes three simple steps to secure your home: Install the Logitech® Command Center PC software, connect the USB receiver and plug in your camera(s). Plus, HomePlug encrypts your video, so it’s secure.

Once you’ve installed your camera(s), you can watch live video or review recorded video. The intelligent cameras detect motion and record video directly to your PC’s hard drive for easy playback and archiving. To give you easy access, the intuitive PC-based interface lets you easily navigate and set your preferences.

On-The-Go Alerts, Free Remote Viewing

You can feel more peace of mind with Logitech’s video security cameras – even when you’re on the go. If there’s motion at your home or business, you can configure the system to send you e-mail or mobile-phone alerts. Additionally, you can log in to your password-protected online account to view live video online from an Internet-connected PC.

For maximum coverage, you can add up to six Logitech Indoor or Outdoor Cameras in any combination.
