The best HomeKit-enabled camera I've used

I'm the connected home editor for iMore so I've had the opportunity to try several HomeKit-enabled cameras. The Logitech Circle 2 is — by far — the best camera to use with your HomeKit setup. The set up process was simple and intuitive and I've yet to experience any connection issues. The camera is rock solid, motion notifications are reliable and accurate, and the camera's view is available in the Home app for iOS.

How to use the Logitech Circle 2 with Apple HomeKit

Once you've got the camera connected to HomeKit, you'll be able to view and control the camera within the Home app for iOS.

You can also use Siri to quickly access your camera. My Logitech Circle 2 looks out onto my front yard, so I've placed it in the Front Yard room within the Home app for iOS. I can say, "Hey Siri, show me the camera in my front yard," and Siri will launch the Home app for iOS and immediately show me a view of the Logitech Circle 2 camera.
