Logitech has been known for its webcams for a long time, and a while ago it started bringing that expertise into the home security camera market. The Logitech Circle 2 was released earlier this year and our own Ryan Whitwam got a chance to try it out, finding that it was superior to the first generation in almost every way.

Logitech has released an update to the Logi Circle app that goes with its Circle security cameras, and for the first time, users will now see an image preview in a notification warning you of detected activity while you're not at home.
