Logitech Circle View Doorbell With HomeKit Secure Video Launches at Apple

Alongside AirPods Max, Apple today also began selling the new Logitech Circle View Wired Doorbell, one of the first video doorbells with support for HomeKit Secure Video.

The Circle View Doorbell includes Logitech's "TrueView" video technology with a 160º field of view, head-to-toe HD video quality, HDR, and color night vision. As a wired doorbell, the Circle View connects to your existing doorbell setup, including indoor chime modules.

While Robin's ProLine Doorbell was the first doorbell to support ‌HomeKit Secure Video‌, that's a professional-level doorbell priced in excess of $500, so Logitech's Circle View is really the first ‌HomeKit Secure Video‌ doorbell aimed at consumers.

‌HomeKit Secure Video‌ gives you 10 days of iCloud-stored footage that doesn't count against your iCloud limits, although you need to have at least a 200GB ‌iCloud‌ plan to support one camera or a 2TB ‌iCloud‌ plan to support up to five cameras.

‌HomeKit Secure Video‌ also gives you private video analysis that occurs directly on your Apple device rather than on cloud servers, as well as full encryption before anything is sent to ‌iCloud‌. It also integrates with people tags from the Photos app in order to identify who is at your door.

The Logitech Circle View Wired Doorbell is priced at $199.95 and is available now from the Apple online store.

This appears to use WiFi, not PoE, and is therefore not a “wired” doorbell.
Yes its a "wired" doorbell because it uses existing low voltage doorbell wiring for power instead of a battery. This is the same phrasing used across the entire video doorbell market.

Apple really needs to allow more than 5 cameras with HKSV.

Did you even read the specs on Logitech’s website? No, you didn’t. WiFi. That’s not wired. That’s wireless.
when referring to smart home products like cameras and doorbells, wired or wireless refers to power delivery. Not data. These smart home products from Logitech, eufy, arlo, netatmo, nest, abode, simplisafe, wyze, aqara, vocolinc and so on all transfer data over wireless. But are only called wireless if they use batteries. And called wired if they plug in an electrical outlet. This isn't anything new.

POE cameras are something else entirely. I'm not aware of any POE cameras in the smart home space that these other products occupy. Though I could be wrong.

If only they had a wireless version, I'd order one asap. My Ring is getting old, and for privacy reasons is rather get something else the next time.
