About this app

Canary is home security made simple. The Canary app works with our security devices to connect your home to your phone, allowing you to view and protect those that matter most.

Monitor your home: Watch live or recorded HD videos day or night. Access Canary’s timeline for a living history of your home. Save and bookmark your favorite clips.

Intelligent notifications: When Canary identifies something out of the ordinary, you’ll get a notification with recorded HD video of the event, as well as the option to watch live.

Automatic arming: Canary changes modes when you come and go. No complicated keypads or codes to remember.

- Home
When a member is home Canary is customizable. You can set notification and privacy preferences.

- Night
Schedule Canary to monitor for activity while you sleep.

- Privacy

Emergency Options: Respond to incidents directly from the Canary app. Trigger the 90 decibel siren, or be connected directly to your home’s local emergency responders.

A healthier home: Canary’s HomeHealth Technology™ monitors indoor air quality, temperature, and humidity. It all adds up to a smarter and safer home.

Most recent update broke it. The app was already slow and buggy at times, but it's worse now. My phone says the app has bugs, so the app won't even open. And it's stuck on 'away' mode so I get more notifs than I like. Edit: January 5th, cannot access the app, or my account, and i have to manually change modes as it won't auto change anymore. What happened this time? -_-

What is with these ads? Just went from bad to worse. I would not recommend these after being a huge supporter and recommending to many. They got greedy and charge for everything, these cameras are useless unless you want to pay for EACH! PREVIOUS REVIEW: 1 camera completely stopped working, won't connect, won't record movement when on anymore! These things are so useless, no longer getting push notifications all of a sudden for a while.

I've always had issues with Canary, even when we paid for the service, there would be periods of no recordings at all, always when we needed them. It seems like it will only record every 10 minutes when it detects activity. It always switches to home mode, even though we disabled that. Useless. Will never record anything anymore. Additionally, the temperature and humidity won't pull up anymore and the app seems to not respond to touch. It is like this on all our devices (2 phones, 1 tablet).
