Great news Mac users! Today, Logitech is expanding our Logitech Alert lineup by introducing Logitech Alert Commander for Mac® OS X, a new powerful software desktop application that easily turns your Mac into a video security command center. Mac users can now setup and install their Alert systems without needing a Windows based computer!
With our new Mac software, you can configure, control and view video from you Logitech Alert™ Security System directly from your Mac, a capability that is already available on Windows-based computers. Alert Commander for Mac OS X is available for free in the Mac App Store, supports Mac OS version 10.6.8 and higher, and works with all existing versions of our Logitech Alert security cameras.
Alert Commander for Mac OS supports up to six Logitech Alert security cameras and gives you the flexibility to keep an eye on your property and loved ones. With a wide-angle lens that delivers twice the viewing area than that of a standard camera and HD resolution video, home security has never looked this good. Plus, there is a new pop-out window feature that allows you to minimize the main app while continuing to watch one or more cameras while you multi-task. Work on a presentation or browse the web, and still keep an eye on what’s important.
Additionally, you can access previously recorded clips — play, pause, forward and rewind video – ensuring no action is missed. To make it easier to review your recordings, just mouse over the timeline and see a thumbnail of the action that triggered a recording. And just like the Windows version, you can back up your video recordings to your Mac’s HD to archive for a later review.
On vacation, a business trip or at the office? You can receive text alerts with photo snapshots to your e-mail or mobile device when suspicious motion is detected. You can also schedule desktop notifications to appear at a certain time each day. No matter where or how far away you are from your home or business, Logitech Alert offers you peace of mind.
