Logitech Circle 2 Magnetic Mount

Logitech Circle 2 Window Mount

The Magnetic Mount for the Circle 2 is a great accessory for positioning your camera just where you want it. It requires no tools or screws to set up, and allows you to stick your Circle 2 security camera on any metal surface. It even comes with a metal plate so you can attach it to non-metal surfaces if needed. Just don't expect to move that plate after you stick it on.

Pros

  • Easily attaches Circle 2 to any magnetic surface
  • Works with both indoor and outdoor
  • Ultra strong magnets
  • No screws or tools are required for setup
  • Compatible with Wired and Wire-Free Circle 2 cameras
  • Comes with optional metal plate that attaches to non-metal surfaces via a semi-permanent adhesive.

Cons

  • Metal plate adhesive is almost impossible to remove
  • Logitech says to wait 24 hours between attaching metal plate and hanging the Circle 2 on it

The Window Mount is fairly versatile and works with any window in the house, making it a good option for front door security. It's pretty easy to set up, and it can reduce reflections in the video footage should you decide to keep it behind a window. However, it does require being plugged in, which defeats the purpose of having the Wired-Free version.

Pros

  • Compatible with both Circle 2 Wired and Wired-Free
  • Can be mounted on any window pane (single pane works best)
  • Designed to reduce reflections in video footage if placed behind the window
  • Easy to set up

Cons

  • The Wire-Free Circle 2 will need to operate plugged in since this is a plugged-in wired mount
  • Setup isn't as simple as the Magnetic Mount

While both mounts are good options to have in your home security system, we prefer the flexibility of the Magnetic Mount. Plus, it can literally be attached anywhere on the house since it comes with a metal plate, so you aren't limited to just magnetic surfaces.

The breakdown

While the Window Mount allows you to see more of what's going on outside from the inside of your home, the view really depends on where your windows are placed. Since it sticks to the window itself, you're not going to be able to adjust the angle, unless there's another window that gives you a better view. If there isn't a good window to place it in, then the Window Mount is kind of useless for the situation. I mean, who wants to do work on the house just to get the right position for a camera?

Out of these two options, the Magnetic Mount is definitely the better choice. Even though it's magnetic, Logitech provides customers with a metal plate that attaches anywhere with super strong, semi-permanent adhesive, so it can go on any surface regardless. And if you already have a good spot on a magnetic surface (i.e. rain gutters, metal door frames or posts, even light fixtures), then just attach the magnetic base and put it where you want — it won't budge! Just push the camera around the base until you find the perfect viewing angle, and you're good to go with no unsightly mess.

However, you should be aware that if you decide to use the metal plate, you need to firmly decide where it'll go, since the plate is very difficult to remove with the strong adhesive. At the least, you know it won't be going anywhere.

Another big advantage with the Magnetic Mount is that if you opted for the Wire-Free version of the Circle 2, the Magnetic Mount doesn't need to be plugged in to use, allowing you to remain untethered. The Window Mount, on the other hand, needs that plug, which makes having a wire-free version of a camera kind of useless. The Magnetic Mount can also be used both indoors and outdoors, whereas the Window Mount is only for indoor use behind a window.

Logitech Circle 2 Window Mount

The Window Mount is easy to attach to any window, but you'll need to make sure you have a good view first. It's designed to reduce reflections in video footage if you place it behind the window. But know that if you have the Wire-Free Circle 2, the Window Mount requires it to be plugged in.
