The Logitech Alert security camera system is a dead simple remote monitoring service and the company just outed an iPad companion app. In many ways the iPad version is just a retooled version of the current web app with live video viewing as the main feature. Users can view previously recorded alerts, change the settings on the cameras, and view live 720p video complete with sound. The app itself is free although to use any feature besides the live mode, a $79.99 subscription to the Logitech Alert Web and Mobile Commender service is required. Logitech’s cameras are on the pricey side, but feature great video quality, and as this app shows, good support from Logitech.
