I'm guessing yes... it says "One account, unlimited cameras connected and multiple users."

I currently have 2 cameras set up in HomeKit and works fine.
Nothing to do with multiple vs single camera use, but since we're on the topic of HomeKit:
One important point to be aware of is that motion detection for HomeKit will NOT work if you are using the camera through glass (eg. Window Mount). In this scenario, the camera does correctly detect motion and record clips for notification and viewing via the LogiTech Circle 2 app and website, but HomeKit will NOT receive any motion trigger signal that can be used in automations.
So if you want, for example, HomeKit to switch on house lights when motion outside is detected by your Circle 2 camera then you will need to have your camera mounted outside.
