Review and Buying Guide Canary All-in-One Home Security Device

Ok functionality, but ‘pay to play’ and not integration with other components or application. If i would arrive again to make this order determination once more i would want a merchandise with a extra open up platform. The actuality that i have to pay out to be capable to down load my have info or to get longer coverage than forty eight hrs is pretty off-placing. If you have the ambition to increase additional good home devices afterwards on this device would be absolutely isolated from that eco-method seeing that the canary isn’t going to combine with anything put by itself.

Not terrible but somewhat above priced and no support for oneplus two (to established the device up). . I received this for a close friend and established this up nonetheless couple of points:- the construct quality is seriously good. Feels like its been designed of quality supplies. – the set up approach is really easy even though it does not do the job with the just one plus 2. As component of the setup you want to connect the device by means of headphone socket which does not get the job done with the oneplus2. To get round this i established it up on the ipad and then logged in on the oneplus2 employing the application. – the digital camera high-quality is very excellent and zoom in is fantastic. – the siren/alarm is very loud- the assistance from canary is fantastic and highly suggest the limitless provider. Draw back:- the camera does not go- can not set motion detection zones.

I wouldnt acquire just about anything else. Device operates just as described with exceptional photo high-quality and easy streaming. The geo-fencing for car arm and disarm operates seamlessly also ensuring no aggravating false alerts from the device. Even far more remarkable is their customer support, a polite stick to up immediately after treatment e-mail from them enabled me to form out an challenge i had with developing two equipment on a single account (my fault). Great product and terrific support. I will be shopping for a lot more gadgets from them before long for other properties.

Superior looking device, simply mistaken for a designer loudspeaker, and good impression high-quality.

Truly superior high quality and effectively assumed out. Acquired 1 of these for my household, really superior high-quality and well considered out. Purchased yet another 4 for my warehouse (to enhance the existing security procedure) due to the simple fact it is 1080 viewing and i can pick up audio as very well. Program was able of choosing up exercise and recording twelve persons leaving the warehouse in different teams and recording it all to the cloud.

Canary All-in-One Home Security Device – Black : Good bit of kit, but better 3rd party integration would make it 5 star. . Great bit of kit for monitoring your home. It would be even better if it integrated with nest or ifttt or homekit. It is really interesting to see the exact temperature of the room it’s in, the humidity and the air quality. It is also the only (i am not aware of others at the time of writing) with a free plan included – 12 hours of recording for free. Nest cam needs you to subscribe to a monthly plan – that puts me off instantly. Also they keep updating it, follow on the blog here: [.

    Get one now, you won’t regret it. Wow, unbelievable how cool this little gadget is. Tested it out when the cleaners came over and it triggers an alert to my mobile phone. On sporadic occasions, i’ll get a alert when the sun comes up around 5am but i can live with that. Besides, you can tag that as ‘sunrise’ and the camera seems to learn from that.

    Picked up a canary here in the uk. Tested it out here then brought it back to germany. Installation extremely easy. You pair your cell phone to the device with the supplied ear phone jack, set up your account and away you go. The device registers when you leave your home and is then armed. If the motion detector detects any movement you receive an alert on your cell phone, and are given the option to call the emergency services or sound the 80db siren. All the household members can pair their phones to the canary and they all have access to the canary’s functions. Had a small problem when the most recent updates were released, but the helpline was very efficient, and i just had to delete the app on my iphone and reinstall the app. A very effective and easy to set up home security device. I would highly recommend it.

    Received this today and set it up in 10 minutes, easy to use and i am very impressed. Bought it to replace old burglar alarm, with 4 smartphone users in the house it was an ideal choice. Would definitely recommend this.

    Works well, bet updates on firmware are best done with a ethernet cable.

      Its apparent drawback is really its strength (read on. ). I weighed up the pros and cons of canary vs a ‘traditional’ security system, like the excellent wireless yale kits, for a long time. Basically the big difference, and the reason many people think canary is no good, is that with the canary, an intruder will not automatically trigger the alarm. Yes, that’s something that you have to do. So if you don’t get and check any alert sent by canary quickly enough to see the intruders still there, you’ll miss them. And that is why many people claim canary is no good, and why i nearly didn’t get one. Until one day, i was relaxing at home reading the ‘paper while a neighbour’s house alarm went off. Doing what everyone does when they hear a house alarm. But due to a recent break-in at my house, i went to investigate. I of course found that no one was robbing them, but more importantly i discovered that the alarm, that was a full ten houses away, was being ignored by everyone. . I would rather capture burglars in hd video saved in the cloud, but maybe not have an alarm go off, than i would have an alarm auto-triggered, but without capturing any evidence. You need reasonably fast and reliable wifi of course. . You’ll be amazed how people don’t notice it. I thought that any burglar would immediately smash it, but people have no idea what it is.

        The push notification alerts work great – i have it synced to my iphone and. Got this to keep an eye on my dog while i’m out. The push notification alerts work great – i have it synced to my iphone and apple watch. The video quality is amazing, wide angle lense so you can see whole room. Looks modern next to phone and wifi router. Now i can see that my dog just sleeps and every now & then watches out of window then back to sleep.

    Ok functionality, but “pay to play” and not integration with other hardware or software. If i’d come back to make this purchase decision again i would prefer a product with a more open platform. The fact that i have to pay to be able to download my own data or to get longer coverage than 48 hours is quite off-putting. If you have the ambition to add more smart home devices later on this device would be totally isolated from that eco-system seeing that the canary doesn’t integrate with anything put itself.

    Set up in 10 mins for my wife and i. The wide angle and lens quality is very good. I looked at this and the nestcam, but kept returning to this model based on the wide angle, app, reviews and health monitoring too, i’m not dissapointed and will probably buy another two for elsewhere in the house.

      Excellent product with excellent app. I purchased canary just over a month ago and have been holding off on writing this review until i had a decent chance to get to know it. I was a bit concerned about a lot of other reviews saying that they had problems connecting, problems with sensitivity, etc. Thankfully, my canary experience has been extremely positive. Connecting – syncing the canary with the app on my iphone 5s was seamless and it also connected fine to my sky broadband router – i have a download speed of around 13mbps and an upload speed of around 1mbps and it has coped fine. Auto-arming – one of the huge reasons i went for canary rather than one of the other cameras out there was the auto-arm function. Both my wife and i have the app on our phones and canary has no problem auto-arming when we have both left the house and disarming once one of us is home. The only slightly irritating thing is that the radius is quite large, so that it only auto-arms once we are 200m away and disarms at around the same distance. I have also downloaded the wink app which allows you to set a timer schedule for auto-arming, so we’ve got the canary set up to arm at midnight and disarm at 7am. Sensitivity – when we first got the canary, it was sending notifications a lot more than it should – we have lights switching on with timers and it would always notify us. However, after a bit of tagging and reducing the sensitivity setting, we no longer get notifications for this or things like car headlights or sunlight, although the canary does still record them (it just doesn’t tell us about them). So a month in, we’ve now got it set to a good level where we get notifications for people-sized movement but not for anything else. Subscription – this was a bit annoying. I’ve had to pay around Ā£40 for a 1 year plan that allows me to see 2 days worth of activity and have unlimited downloads.

        After setting it up – excellent application. However excellent support helping out to get to the final setup to adopt the tool to the local network as it needs open fe ports during setup.
