Securing video and data is our top priority. We built the Canary system to be simple to use without sacrificing any of the safeguards that customers expect when streaming and storing video. All parts of our system—from the device to the cloud to the app—employ extensive security measures to protect private data, such as AES 256-bit symmetric-key encryption, Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), secure HTTP access (HTTPS) using TLS/SSL, and more. You can find out more detail about Canary’s security practices here.
As a State Farm customer, you will receive a month free of our 7-Day Plan and a $20 State Farm Bank® Visa® Gift Card.1 In addition, owning a Canary may qualify you for an insurance discount.2
This device is the perfect security system for me and my family. We leave it on to send notifications to our phones when my wife and I are not home. Hi-res video let's us keep tabs on the dog, and also on the babysitter, all the while providing security with no monthly fee. Highly recommend this product! Read more
I never thought about needing a security device but while I was away on vacation someone attempted to break into my apartment. It put me on edge so I decided to get the Canary and it has provided me with a greater sense of security and comfort. It's also been helpful when I got my place re-painted. I could watch to make sure nothing was going on that shouldn't have been and no one was going where they shouldn't. Read more
I am also using [Canary] in ways I didn't imagine when I got it. I was having an issue with one of my dogs in the house when no one was home. I was able to set the Canary up in a strategic location and actually see what my dog was doing when the coast was clear. My house is safe from intruders and mischievous dogs! You can't beat it for the price!! Read more
Just download the Canary app, plug it in, and follow the onscreen instructions on your smartphone to get set up in moments. No tools, assembly, or installation required.
Canary was designed to be placed on flat surfaces. Suggested locations include countertops, tables, bookshelves, end tables, and credenzas.
We recommend setting up Canary in a central, high-traffic area of your home. In larger homes, we recommend setting up a Canary near each main entrance.
Yes. Canary is completely independent from any central hub or external sensors.
Yes. Canary must be connected to the internet either via Wi-Fi (2.4GHz) or wired Ethernet (cable not included).
Canary is not designed for outdoor use.
Canary is a stationary unit, and does not mechanically rotate, pan, or tilt. However, it features a wide-angle field of view which covers a large area without the need to pan, and up to 3x digital zoom.
Canary features a 90+ dB siren that you can activate manually from the Canary app.
We’re working on a web app that will allow you to access your Canary through any web-enabled device, but we don’t currently have a timeline for when this will arrive.
You can securely stream live video from your Canary with the iOS or Android app.
Canary sends push notifications to your smartphone to alert you to unexpected activity and events.
In away mode, Canary monitors your home for activity and sends you a push notification with a video when it detects movement.
In home mode, Canary can send you notifications when it detects activity, record activity without notifications, or disable the camera and microphone entirely.
In night mode, you can set a schedule for when you want your Canary to monitor your home for activity with or without sending you notifications. Alternatively, you can schedule your Canary to be set private.
When Canary is set to record, you can stream real-time video, view and save video events to your location timeline, and check your home’s air quality, humidity and temperature.
When set to private, Canary’s camera, microphone, and motion detection capabilities are fully disabled. Only temperature, humidity, and air quality information are uploaded to the Canary Cloud.
We currently offer free shipping to anywhere in the US and UK.
No. We’re committed to ensuring that we provide a simple, complete security solution to all of our users. Our free plan includes motion-activated alerts, video recording, access to events from the last 12 hours, and up to five saved clips on the Canary Cloud.
For longer-term storage options, you can sign up for one of our Extended Plans.
We offer a 60 day return policy if you purchase Canary through our online store. If you decide to purchase your device from a third-party retailer, returns are subject to their policy.
You can find all the details about our warranty and returns policy here.
It’s entirely dependent on your house or apartment, but we usually recommend one per floor, and one per entryway. Our system supports up to four devices in one location, so you can easily start with one Canary and add more later.
That’s totally up to you. It's a standalone system so it works by itself, but if you want to keep what you have, then Canary can be a good complement. With Canary, you’ll be able to know what’s happening inside your home directly from your smartphone without any complicated keypads or middlemen.
Canary is designed to accommodate everyone from individuals to roommates to families. Use the Canary app to add multiple members to a location and keep everyone informed and connected.
Absolutely. You can set them up wherever you want, and if you set them up in different locations, you can easily access both locations with the Canary app.
In addition to video and audio, Canary features HomeHealth Technology™ which monitors temperature, humidity, and air quality. You can use this information to get a more complete picture of your home.
