News comes this morning that Logitech will acquire WiLife, makers of the simplest to install digital video home surveillance system in the market. When I tried the product last year, I had some struggles with its HomePlug underpinnings, even though I’d previously had good results with HomePlug. In any case, the software is very well-done and this will fit well into Logitech’s product portfolio.
Logitech has a strong track record of building acquisitions such as Intrigue, which developed the Harmony remote, and Connectix’ QuickCam business, which greatly accelerated its webcam business. Indeed, Logitech should leverage the QuickCam brand with its new acquisition.
