Canary - Smart Home Security
By Canary Connect
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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.
When all members are away Canary monitors for activity and sends notifications
When a member is home Canary is customizable. You can set notification and privacy preferences.
Schedule Canary to monitor for activity while you sleep.
Camera and microphone are completely off.
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.

From time to time, the Canary auto-mode switching feature may briefly access your GPS in order to have high confidence in your location. Battery life is very important to us and we do many things to ensure we use it sparingly. Please be aware that continued use of GPS services running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 2.8.1
- iOS 11 support.
- Various bug fixes and stability improvements.
Don't bother with Canary.
When I first set up the app everything worked (I have the free version of your app). Within minutes I was unable to "watch live" because the app began to repeatedly crash. I have removed the app and reinstalled it but nothing is working. I have an iPhone 6 Plus, iOS version 9.3.5.
The camera keeps disconnecting from the internet and Bluetooth. It would be nice if the dashboard gave a status. Sorry but you all need to go back to the drawing board.
I also have the Presence app set up with an iPhone 5 to test which one is detecting activity. The Presence app with my old iPhone is outperforming your product and I have spent zero dollars. Your camera/app is not picking up activity or notifying me timely.
With all of the data breaches & identity thefts; my biggest concern is all the data Canary collects from its users, even those who had a failed experience. Get ready for your phones to start ringing off the hook because anyone who ever did the setup has been sold to the highest bidder. *sigh*
Canary, better than Blink and Butterfleye.
I have 3 Canary’s and love them. The video is clear and detects motion really well. The best thing is when I leave the house it automatically turns on. I’ve tried both Blink and Butterfleye and so far this is the best. I don’t understand the bad wrap it’s getting in the reviews and wondering what’s better than this one!
No Default Landscape View - Great Home Security
My family loves our Canary Home Security System. We have only been impressed.
There is no default support for landscape mode. I use my iPad Pro in landscape view 90% of the time. And when I open Canary, I have to rotate the iPad to portrait then back to landscape (keyboard attached and all) to get into the right view.
Hoping for a new update soon.
