Logitech (www.logitech.com) has expanded its Logitech Alert software lineup by introducing Logitech Alert Commander for Mac OS X, a desktop application that turns your Mac computer into a video security command center, allowing you to configure, control and view your Logitech Alert digital video security system from a Mac.
The new Mac software works with all Logitech Alert security cameras. The Alert Commander for Mac is now available to download for free from the Mac App Store and supports Mac OS X10.6.8 and higher. Logitech Alert is a complete video security system in a box, featuring software, free remote viewing and free iOS, Android and BlackBerry apps.
With Logitech Alert Commander for Mac you can view live and recorded video from your cameras in HD resolution, and back up recorded video from your cameras to your Mac. Account and security settings also let you ocontrol digital pan, tilt and zoom of cameras, set up motion zones for individual cameras, and create and manage e-mail and mobile-phone motion alerts or desktop notifications of important events.
Logitech Alert Commander for Mac supports up to six Logitech Alert security cameras, giving you the flexibility to place additional cameras in more locations in and around your home. All Logitech Alert security cameras offer HD video (960 x 720 @ 15fps), a 130-degree wide-angle lens, and a built-in DVR that records motion events to an included 2GB MicroSD card -- even when the Mac is turned off. Several Logitech Alert models also include night vision, making it easier to identify people and other objects more clearly, day or night.
Logitech Alert uses HomePlug networking, which removes the need to run wires or bother with network configuration. Simply plug your camera into a power outlet, and HomePlug uses your existing electrical wiring and outlets to connect your camera to the network and transmit video securely.
