Logitech is a brand well known to many Mac and iOS users for their frequently awesome accessories, but all isn't quite wine and roses following the company's quarterly results, with big changes coming in 2013.
Unlike the strictly viewing-only Logitech Alert apps for iOS and Android, the new Logitech Alert Commander for Mac offers complete control over up to six indoor or outdoor Logitech Alert cameras, including digital pan, tilt, and zoom, and digital DVR recording and playback. We tested the software with the Logitech Alert 750e Outdoor Master System, a weatherproof, night-vision-capable single security camera with HD video capture and motion-triggered alerts. (The indoor model is $50 less, while add-on cameras start at $229.99.)
It's a great time to be a Mac user, with accessory makers big and small finally taking the platform seriously with native software. Logitech has been leading the charge, and now counts its security products among them.
