Following in the footsteps of Google’s own Nest, Logitech has announced that the Logitech Circle home security cameras now integrates with Google Assistant.
Today, Logitech announced Circle 2 home security cameras now work with the Google Assistant on smart speakers like Google Home, eligible Android phones and iPhones, so you can easily ask to watch live video of what’s happening in and around your home. Start by saying, “Ok Google, show me the backyard camera,” to show a live view of your backyard on your TV using the Google Assistant and Chromecast, or a TV with Chromecast built in.
The news is great for consumers as it now provides a choice of home security cameras that can leverage Google Assistant for real time monitoring of your home or apartment.
The integration works with both the original Circle cameras as well as the recently updated Circle 2 models and works on both wired & wireless integration into your home network. Functionally, it works the same as the Nest cameras do with Google Assistant. If you have a “front door” camera, you can say, “Hey Google, show me the front door” and it will stream the video feed from that camera to your Chromecast. Additional cameras are support for other doors or areas in your home or apartment.
This new addition by Logitech is just the latest in a rapidly growing field of Google Assistant supporting devices. There are now 65 different home automation vendors supporting Assistant, making things easier for consumers and providing them more choice on what they want in their homes.
