Loved this device and app. Bought two. Then they made it so that you could only view the last 24 hrs of video without a subscription. Fine, I can live with that. With each update they take away more and more features trying to force folks into a pricey subscription. I run my own NVR, but there is no way to recover hardware cost by connecting these cameras and it is too late to return them now. I can no longer recommend Canary.
I've had my camera for over a year and loved it. Now they are forcing us to get monthly/yearly subscriptions. The main reason I got the camera was because there was no extra cost outside of what I pay for my WiFi. They just made being a single mother that much harder. Keeping an eye on my latch key kid is a must and they just made that harder. No longer can I give 5 stars. What happened to grandfather clauses? Did that ever occur to you guys? Guess when you only see green who cares, right?
Used to be 5 stars until they took my ability to download events away. If I don't want to pay for the service, but I get broken into, I have to pay to get the surveillance video of the perp. That's unacceptable. They've taken too much functionality away for users who bought the product but don't want to subscribe.
Just like all the other customers who have had canary for a year or more. I am highly disappointed in all of these new updates and changes! All of the new updates and changes are just for the free customers to be backed in a corner and pressured to buy subscription for $99 or more. All of the great features that were free are now gone. Bad move canary, very bad move. I will be selling this canary soon and will be looking into another device.✌️
Thought this would be a great product. However it has proved unreliable and not fit for purpose as a home monitoring security device. Notifications are slow and the "watch live feature" is very hit and miss. I am sending my devices back. Now the night mode feature is part of the full subscription. No way Canary. I paid too much for the kit in the first place without having to be forced into buying premium membership too.
Terrible update and awful way to get people to signup to overpriced membership. Now many features you would expect to get with any security camera are only available if you subscribe. Shame on you Canary! Buyers of Canary products need to be cautious as you may find your hardware rendered pretty useless unless you are willing to pay high monthly fees especially if you have multiple devices. Time to look for alternatives to Canary.
