I have 2 canaries in different houses, both work great. You don't need a monthly sub, the extra features are nice but rly you just need it as a nanny cam. Note: even with monthly sub, this is NOT q substitute for ADT or similar (dispatch service). App works great, as advertised.
I was very happy with this app until the last two updates. I am now unable to zoom and move the picture. The buttons are higher in landscape mode and cannot be switched off making it easy to hit them by mistake.. please go back two updates to when it worked.
Geofencing doesn't work so now it's just a creepy way to spy on family members. Also, the new person detection feature means you can't use it as a nanny cam without getting a notification every 2 minutes, even at the lowest sensitivity setting
This app goes from useful to non functional with the breeze. Only thing it's good for is reporting the temperature inside my living room and telling me I'm an intruder in my own home. If this stupid camera wasn't a gift I'd smash it with a hammer. At least then I'd get some enjoyment from watching it suffer.
2/23/18 update: App is still sluggish with continued pausing. Not my home network because if i go to their website and the live stream page is works fine. New update does not allow the Siren, Talk, Emergency buttons to dissappear when phone is turned sideways. 10/22/17 update: app still continually crashes. Then when it does work the live feed always and i mean always is slow and/or stops. Ever since update on 8/13 or 8/14, live stream is very choppy. 8/29 update: very heavy distortion just to add a talk feature is not worth it. The app distorts rather than stops or pauses because they added the two way talk feature. They did this so there is no delay in the video. Again not worth the heavy distortion. 9/8 update, app crashes all the time now.
Over 20 false notifications a day ringing my phone, even with motion sensitivity turned all the way down to zero, just from my cat walking around. Never used to happen before the automatic firmware update. Junk.
