SecuritySpy doesn't list the Logitech cameras as being supported.
Also, the web commander is useless if Logitech isn't capable of keeping the servers alive. They have been down all day.
There are several ports open--it would be nice if Logitech would just provide tools for other people to develop an Open-platform client so folks like SecuritySpy could quickly add these nice cameras to their mix. Or a standard web streaming tool surely would be simple enough for them to create.

I would also love to know when there is a Mac OS X native version for the commander software. I'll be a user with two cameras. Looking forward to having a Mac OS X version. Thanks.

I really like the features and review of the Alert™ 750e Outdoor Master System. I was just about ready to order a system and 3 additional cameras when I saw the specs that it's Windows only. I' a Mack user and have an extra mini that I'd like to use with this system. If it was now available for a Mack, I'd order in a heart beat.
If I did dig out an old PC and set it up now, I wonder if I would be allowed to convert to Mack software when (and if) it becomes available. And if there would be any additional cost for the switch.

Does anyone know the settings to use in SecuritySpy to support the logitech Alert cameras? I can see the cameras using VLC, but have had no luck in getting SecuritySpy to connect.
I'm using the manual setting, putting in the ip address, changing the port to 554 and putting "/LowResolutionVideo" in the HTTP request.
I have tried several different combinations (default port, full rstp in the http request) to no avail.
Wireshark shows bad requests
RTSP/1.0 400 Bad Request\\r\\n
Allow: OPTIONS, DESCRIBE, SETUP, TEARDOWN, PLAY, PAUSE, GET_PARAMETER, SET_PARAMETER\r\n
Anyone figure it out yet??

Looking at the security spy documentation, the only format it supports from network devices is MJPEG: "SecuritySpy supports devices that can send video in "multipart JPEG" format (sometimes called "server push" or "motion JPEG"), as well as those that can send individual JPEG images."
Unfortunately we don't expose a MJPEG stream on the camera that's easily digestible. It'd be great if security spy supported receiving RTSP with H264/AAC payloads; MJPEG is pretty clunky.

Does anyone from Logitech have an update to the Mac OS issue? I intend on using a iMac with Parallels windows virtual machine to run my Logitech. In fact, my logitech system is the ONLY reason why Im getting parallels. it's an annoying work around, and shame on Logitech for not having a Mac version.
Can someone from Logitech confirm that I can run their Alert Commander on Parallels in a virtual windows environment, and am I able to store the recording on the hard drive within the iMac. Does the hard drive need to be formated a certain way to store Alert videos, even in the virtual parallels machine?

Has anyone had an update on the Mac OS version of this software? I understand that the web view at alert.logitech.com works however I can only view 1 camera at a time and I'l like to see all 5 of my cameras like the software does. If the web version of this software was able to display multiple cameras at the same time that would also work.

I m running win7 on a 27" imac. loaded win7 with bootcamp and partioned 100gig for the windows side. Also using a seagate 1tb usb ext. drive. Alert works, but the same connectivity problems exist. I am now running Blue iris with 6 alert indoor cams and 3 outdoor cams. Have to keep commander running to control cam settings. I can usually open commander and only see 1 or 2 cams but all 9 are streaming to Blueiris.
Also using PoE switches. Logitech should buy the Blueiris software and ship it with the great cameras. I truly hope they get Commader fixed, their recording recall is far better than Blueiris.
