HomePlug. The main ingredient for easy-to-set-up Logitech Alert Digital Video Security.
Connect your Logitech Alert™ digital video security camera to your home network through your existing electrical wires? It’s easy with HomePlug® technology.
HomePlug technology is a powerline networking standard that uses your existing electrical lines to create a local network. It’s one of the main reasons why Logitech Alert™ digital video security is a snap to get started.

With HomePlug, it takes about fifteen minutes to set up your Logitech Alert digital video security system.
- Install Logitech Alert Commander software on your computer.
- Connect the small HomePlug network adapter to your router.
- Plug your camera into an electrical outlet
That's it. Home Plug technology is ready to transmit secure video data over your existing wires.
HomePlug—What is it?
Every home has power outlets and HomePlug puts them to use. Powerline networking—like other networking technologies, such as Ethernet or 802.11g—allows you to create a local network of connected computers and devices.
While Ethernet is a wired solution and the 802.11 standards a, b and g use wireless connectivity, powerline networking uses your existing electrical lines to connect your computer to your video security cameras.
HomePlug is a standards-based powerline networking technology. The HomePlug Powerline Alliance (https://www.homeplug.org/home/), a nonprofit industry association, manages the development of specifications and is supported by many industry-leading companies.
Logitech Alert digital video security cameras use HomePlug AV, which features a 200 Mbps data rate, 128-Bit Advanced Encryption Standard and password protection. With millions of HomePlug-certified products in use worldwide, the HomePlug AV specification is the world’s only industry-standard, high-bit-rate powerline communication specification.
