There are two very obvious topics we love talking about here at Room for Tuesday- good design and our dogs. A pairing that doesn’t necessarily go hand in hand, but nonetheless have a big influence on our lives. I was super excited when Logitech asked us to team up for a giveaway featuring their new Logi Circle because it incorporates both of my favorite things! It’s a handy little home security camera that doubles as a way to monitor your pets (or kids, I suppose) while you’re away. I seriously love it, and now Finn has figured out that my voice is coming from the camera when I talk to him… it’s really a fun contraption. Click below to read about mine and Jacqueline’s experience and to enter the giveaway.
Since I’m in the middle of moving and our house is almost completely packed, nothing is styled in its regular place. I’m eager to move into our new home and find an inconspicuous spot for the tiny camera on our soon-to-be custom built-in. For now, the only thing Emmett has yet to pack are my plants. Luckily, I have a lot of them, and the camera looks pretty cool styled alongside the planters. Coincidently, the only table he’s yet to wrap in bubble is the perfect height for Finn.
During college, I used to zone out of far too many lectures watching a thing called the “panda cam”. It came along with all MacBooks back in the day. Please tell me you guys remember it? It was a live feed of the pandas at the San Diego Zoo and I was so obsessed with watching them play (rather than taking notes). Well, the Logi Circle is like my own personal “panda” schnauzer cam. It’s super easy to set up and use- you just have to turn it on and download the app. The fun part is talking through the camera.
During a full day of meetings and appointments, I passed the time in the waiting room watching Finn and talking to him (I’m sure people thought I was crazy). Most of the time he just got super close to the camera, tilted his head, and perked his ears. Pretty amusing if you ask me! Here he is sun bathing in the kitchen…
Rather than boasting about my dog obsession the entire post, the camera really has a lot of cool features: smart alerts, motion filtering, free cloud storage, auto night vision, and you even have the ability to replay, download, and share footage. It also quickly recaps an entire day. I think this little tool is going to come in super handy while we’re away on vacation. It’d be nice to keep an eye on our house while we’re traveling.
Jackie’s experience was pretty similar. She liked that it has a nice design and easily blends into her home decor.
Much like myself, she and her husband just have Piper (a bernese mountain dog) and no kids… so she’s also enjoying watching her fur baby remotely. This sweet face actually destroyed a vintage rug not so long ago… maybe Jacqueline will catch her in the act, and prevent another mishap. Ha!

i would love this! i’m a stay at home mom in a not so great neighborhood that is constantly broken into. my husband is also a firefighter, so he’s gone 24 hours at a time. i’m usually pretty nervous once we leave the house or it’s night time. this would help calm me down! i also have a new foster kitten that i have to leave home sometimes, so this would help there, too.
SarahAugust 24, 2016 at 5:01 pm
Oh man! Yes, this would definitely be helpful in putting your mind at ease. Good luck, Kelli! xo

We would love a pet cam for our house! My husband and I both work and he travels frequently, we would love to be able to check in on our kiddos (boxer and lab mix 🐶) during long days at the office and on the road.
SarahAugust 24, 2016 at 5:01 pm
My husband grew up with boxers, and I grew up with labs. Love them both!! :)
LisaAugust 24, 2016 at 2:32 pm
What a great device to have in a home! My husband and I would love this as we are transitioning to having our sweet dog roam the house while we are gone opposed to the crate. Plus, having a camera to monitor the house while we are away, whether for vacation or just a day, would be perfect.
SarahAugust 24, 2016 at 5:00 pm
We have the same issue. I feel like we can only trust Finn for a certain length of time before he gets bored and destructive. Ha! Good luck! xo
MichelleAugust 24, 2016 at 2:53 pm
I hope this giveaway is open to Canadian readers. A pet cam would help us keep an eye on Bane the malamute and check up on him since we’re gone for 9 hours a day. He’s still in his crate but he’s managed to chew off the metal links that hold the crate together!
SarahAugust 24, 2016 at 4:59 pm
Yes ma’am! Bane sounds so cute- I love malamutes. xo
Sam SchneiderAugust 24, 2016 at 3:21 pm
Love your witty post :)
I would love to find out which of my mysterious puppies is ransacking my panty drawer during the day and hiding them on the side of my bed. Is it the Great Dane whom seems so sweet and innocent? Or the fiery yorkie with his mischievous tricks, hard to say since the panty raiding didn’t start until Bella ( the Great Dane) moved in.
SarahAugust 24, 2016 at 4:59 pm
HA!! I’m cracking up over here. The dog cam could definitely help in finding the mysterious panty raider. xo
GraceAugust 24, 2016 at 3:27 pm
This would be so great to keep an eye on my little troublemaker while we are at work during the day. We have long been curious as to what he gets up to during the day (we speculate that it’s not much)!
SarahAugust 24, 2016 at 4:58 pm
That was my exact thinking! I was curious to know what exactly he did all day long (mostly sleep, ha)! xo
Kimberly TelferAugust 24, 2016 at 4:07 pm
Oooh I would love to spy on my two doggies. And talk to them?? Yes please! By the way ladies, your pups are the cutest!
SarahAugust 24, 2016 at 4:56 pm
Thanks so much Kimberly!! xo
Meghan HolderAugust 24, 2016 at 4:49 pm
I would love to spy on my wittle Berner Zoey. She is 3 years young and just want to know she is having a good day while I’m working and in school. Sometimes I am away from her way longer than I want to be and I’m sure it makes her just as sad as it makes me!
SarahAugust 24, 2016 at 4:55 pm
Yes!! It’s really fun because you can talk to Zoey through the camera. She sounds adorable :) xo
Stephanie O'ConnorAugust 24, 2016 at 10:52 pm
I’m a stay at home mom with a traveling hubs. I would love the sense of security and our girls to be able to feel closer to dad when he is gone. Love the modern sleek look of this! I’ll post a home pic on IG- stephanieormama Thank you and good luck with the move!
SarahAugust 25, 2016 at 12:03 am
I like the look of it too! I love that your girls could benefit from this giveaway. Fingers crossed! xo
TierneyAugust 27, 2016 at 9:33 pm
I would love to win this Logi camera! We need one to monitor our front porch to guard against package thefts.
SarahAugust 30, 2016 at 1:10 am
Uh oh! Luckily, I haven’t had an issue with package theft, but the camera could definitely be helpful with that.
CAROLINEAugust 28, 2016 at 4:16 pm
My husband and I are crossing our fingers that we can win this camera! I just told him earlier this week, “How amazing would it be if we could watch Conway (our 3 month-old Goldendoodle) while we’re away, and see what he is up to?” Not realizing this device was already invented… Also, Conway would use all of his sweet puppy manners to welcome an intruder into our home, thus this device would be incredibly helpful as our back up guard dog. Check out our puppy’s picture under my insta name cpkiwi.
SarahAugust 30, 2016 at 1:06 am
Conway sounds so cute!! Fingers crossed. xo
RachelAugust 30, 2016 at 4:51 pm
I would love to have a Logi Circle camera to watch my fur child! I have a Goldendoodle that is home while us “human’s” are away at work 5 days a week. I would love to see what he does, to see how I could better leave our apartment with fun things for him to use/do! Being an “only child” seems to make him lonely sometimes so it would be helpful to watch what he does all day and give him more activities! Also, then I can “awww” over him while he snoozes on the couch, haha!
JacquelineAugust 30, 2016 at 4:57 pm
What a great giveaway! This would be great for our black lab Zoey for when we are gone and it would be nice to spy on our little girl when she naps.
Thanks for the giveaway.
Allison HasserdAugust 30, 2016 at 5:01 pm
Ah, i need these! My bloodhound Duke has been diagnosed with epilepsy and we were trying to figure out how to monitor his seizures while we were away! this would be perfect for us to be able to check in on him while we are at work! i love the simple design and how they don’t stick out! thanks for the giveaway! i tagged you in a picture on IG of Duke so you can see just has sweet he is! :)
SarahAugust 31, 2016 at 2:03 pm
Aww, Duke is so sweet, Allison!! AND- congrats, you’ve been randomly selected as the giveaway winner! Email me: email@example.com with your address to claim your prize. xoxo

My husband is gone often for work. This would help ease his minds as he is gone that our house is on good working order and no one has come to burgle me!
ChristinaAugust 30, 2016 at 5:50 pm
I have always wondered what my dog does while we are away -if I win this, I can find out!!
