Have you heard that Logitech provides free rich mobile applications for your Logitech Alert video security system? Simply visit the app store on your smartphone – either iPhone, Android, or Blackberry – and download the free app which lets you view live video. To take it to the next level, you can also upgrade to our premium service bundle which lets you experience the power of system management from afar by enabling you full control of your Logitech Alert system on your smartphone app, or on any PC or Mac via a web browser. We call these upgrades Mobil Commander and Web Commander. They are sold together as a bundle for $79.99 per year, and you can try them before you buy with our seven day free trial.
Here are a few snapshots taken from Mobile Commander on my iPhone.
Reviewing recorded video is simple, just click on the “Playback” tab at the bottom of the app and this is what you’ll find. The “Recent” tab gives you a summary of the most recent clips recorded on a camera. Each clip is displayed with a thumbnail, video length, time and date stamp to make it simple to review clips that look most interesting to you. The “Find” tab let’s you select a specific date and time to browse video clips.
Select the clip that you would like to review and Mobil Commander will fetch that recording from your camera and play it back for you. This makes it incredibly easy to review video while on the go. It’s also very helpful to verify alerts that you’ve received to make sure there’s no suspicious activity going on while you’re away from home.
Turning alerts on and off is even easier. Simply click the “Alerts” tab at the bottom of the screen and you’ll bring up a simple tool to quickly turn alerts on and off by camera.
With the premium software bundle upgrade you will also receive Web Commander. This powerful upgrade will give you the control you need while on the road from your favorite web browser. You can use all of the features above as well as the option to pan and zoom, create and adjust motion zones and much more.
Next time you log into your account at http://alert.logitech.com/
click on the free 7 day trial link in the lower left hand corner of the webpage and give Mobile and Web Commander a try. The features are powerful and very useful to help protect what matters most to you.
