Summary: I bought a 700n and two 750e cameras (plus their software) for our house. The first 750e died after a few weeks, and Logitech replaced it. The remaining two cameras (a 700n and a 750e) died after a little over a year; the warrantee is only 1 year, so logitech will not replace it. I let the replacement sit in the box since last summer, I finally put it up (to replace the dead one), we'll see how long it works. Beyond not working, these cameras are super flakey.
Summary: This is a delayed review, I purchased this item last year in May, 2013 I purchased this set (master system + 2 additional cameras) to protect my home because it looks like something easy to use and set up (which is true to some degree). However for me, because I don't have a ladder, I had to call in professionals for wiring and placement. I thought having to wire the cameras was the hardest part, boy was I wrong...
Summary: Software that came with the unit would not allow camera to connect. Placed a support call for help. First response was the software was out of date. Downloaded and installed updated software. This caused my home network to become unusable, no internet service. Finally gave up since my network was useless while the new software was installed. Camere looks like it connects but just blinks connected/not connected.
Summary: This would have been 4-5 star product if it hadn't died a few days after 1-year warranty expired. Nice picture quality, responsive program. I really enjoyed it and have planned to buy a few more. Oh well, now I have to look somewhere else.
Summary: 6 months is kind of short for a 300$ device. Now waiting for customer service since a week to confirm my purchase. By the way, the setup is really difficult. Not that it is hard to connect everything but any firewll etc might prevent that you can detect your cam. Took me 6 hours to figure it out. Otherwise a nice cam with a nice picture quality.
Summary: Bought this system directly from the Logitech web site. Two outdoor cameras have been up for 3 years now and working fine. Just wanted to pass on the reminder that you should plug the network adapter directly into the wall socket and not a power strip or surge protector that somehow reduces the signal such that the cameras won't be detected.
Summary: I installed two Logitec Alert Outdoor cameras after trying the Agasio A603W wireless network cam (different review). The logitec cams have a far wider angle and highter resolution. Signal is conducted via the 115V power lines via interface adapters to the PC. Included software works great and automatically archives recordings from activations.
Summary: I bought this camera master so that I could watch my truck. the ease of installation is great. I have watched on the video my truck get broken into 5 times. None of the times has the camera given a good enough visual of the thief for me to make out who they were. When the police reviewed the videos, they recommend I get a better system. I have had this camera zoomed in as far as it would go, and still I get a bad video.
Summary: I purchased my system 3 years ago, have been extremely happy with this product, I have since added 2 additional cameras and set up a second system at our vacation home. I did have one camera go bad and one power supply go bad. I contacted product support and they promptly replaced both items. The few times that I have contacted logitech support, they have been very helpful. Logitech has been a pleasure to work with.
