Logitech on Wednesday introduced new software that turns Mac computers into video surveillance command centers.
Logitech Alert Commander for Mac allows users to tie six Logitech Alert security cameras into a single HD dashboard, viewed live or in playback, giving them full surveillance over households and small offices. (Users can also set up motion alerts that send text or images to your phone or email.) And once set up, the feed can be viewed privately but remotely at Alert.Logitech.com or via the company’s iPad app.
It works with systems including the $350 Logitech Alert 750e Outdoor Master System and the Logitech Alert 700i Indoor Add-On Camera, for either external or internal views of the premises.
Until Wednesday, Logitech’s security products had been compatible only with PCs running Windows software.
Logitech Alert Commander for Mac is free; it is compatible for users running Mac OS 10.6.8 and later.
