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.

Great Product became totally unreliable

Destino de Abril

I loved this product when I first got it, it runs very differently now. Not smooth even with a strong WiFi connection (I work in Rockefeller Plaza and have a wired connection at home, there should be no cannot connect you at this time message). Very slow to load, The red banner appears often, and they’ve constantly taken away features I took for granted to include in a membership. The membership does not improve the signal glitches. If you get this product now you will have to expect random connectivity issues every time you try to access your canary device. I bought this for security and do not feel secure. In fact, I bought this at first mainly to protect against home invasion but without subscription, recording is turned off when I am home. A robber can come into my apartment and beat me and my puppy to death, take everything, and Canary will not record a second of it anymore. I feel like I’m stuck with Canary until I can afford a new camera but if you are a prospective buyer looking for a reliable camera for peace of mind, go with Logitech and spare yourself of this company that had a great product and ruined it with their greed.

Bought 2+ years ago and still improving


Any product you buy will have it’s ups and downs but a true gauge of how well you’ve spent your money will be how long that product performs and how well it performs for the majority of that time. Canary constantly monitors their systems, listens to their customers and improves their software and firmware. This proves to me that Canary not only takes pride in their products but they also respect their customers who’ve bought their products. With the reductions in crime around our apartment complex being directly attributed to Canary videos helping local authorities, I still feel the money I’ve spent over the last 2 years was worth every penny to keep my family safe. Constantly improve yourself Canary.

Love Canary despite occasional flaws


My canary devices work AMAZINGLY. I am having some issues getting way too many notifications on my outdoor one since the person detection came out last week, despite turning the sensitivity down to 0. This is a really big issue in my opinion but I do have faith canary will get it right soon enough and all will be well again. Customer service is fast and very helpful. People complain about the subscription but I don't see it being wrong in anyway. You can at least use the app just for surveillance without and most companies have a subscription as well. Not to mention this is how they pay for upgrading servers and continually improving the camera. What is offered with the subscription is beyond worth it, you get what you pay for as usual.
