Logitech has announced that the Logitech Alert Commander application for Mac is now available to the public. As its name indicate Alert Commander is the “brains” of the surveillance setup and can turn a computer into a surveillance center capable of tracking many Logitech security cameras. This functionality was previously available only to Windows computers. The new app is compatible with all Logitech alert hardware and is a free program in the Mac App Store.
If you are not familiar with it, Alert Commander can display several real-time video streams, but also play back previously recorded videos. It supports a “pop-out” mode, in which a single window can be separated from the main app if you need to work with multiple windows. Motion Zones can be defined so that you get an alert only when something moves in that area. Alerts can also be sent via email or SMS. For those who have fancy cameras with Zoom, Pan and Tilt, Alert Commander has all those controls built-in. Watch the official Logitech video in the full post.
