Pros & Cons
The Logitech Alert 750e Outdoor Master System comes with everything that’s needed to help protect what’s important. It is a smart, weatherproof camera with wide-angle night vision, Windows and Mac software support and a free remote viewing account. With a choice of indoor or outdoor master system plus add-on up to 6 cameras in any combination or location, this is an easy set up device for surveillance. It also supports live video feeds from computer, smartphones, Ipad, Iphone or tablets. This device manages a vision up to 100 feet in complete darkness. Its 130 degrees wide angle lens and weatherproof HD 720p video camera with high powered night vision illumination makes it easier to recognize important details in all weather conditions. The Logitech Alert Commander Software give total control to watch/record/back up video with windows or mac computer and can reconfigure alerts and motion zones anytime.

This camera give the freedom to set motion alerts for various movements like – motion triggered alerts to email or phone, scheduled notification alerts or alerts for target vulnerable areas like doors or windows by specifying up to 16 motion-detection zones.

It also has a built-in DVR and includes a 2 GB microSD card which is expandable up to 32 GB and can store up to a week of recorded video. It only records motion triggered events even when the computer is off and the recordings are automatically backed up on the computer when it connects to the network.
However, there were many reviewers who complained about the motion detection mistaking rain and snow falling and sending alerts. It can be pretty annoying as the problem is particularly acute at night when the infrared illuminators are activated and triggers false alarms. The software seems to be poorly designed and many users face sync issues with the camera and software. This device does not have continuous recording option and some users saw poor image quality and poor night vision quality issues.
Overall, the Logitech Alert 750e Outdoor Master System is a simple, sleek, solidly made security camera system with good looks and affordable price.
