What is Canary:

Canary is a complete home security system packed into a single device-a modern approach to security that lets you protect the people and places you care about most. It's built to learn and adapts to your home over time. Should it detect something out of the ordinary in your house or apartment, Canary sends intelligent notifications with HD video and audio directly to your smartphone.

With no contracts or required monthly fees and free cloud storage of recent events, Canary works right out of the box to protect the people and places you care about most. And since Canary's intelligent notifications only alert you when something unusual happens, you'll enjoy peace of mind when all is quiet and have the opportunity to react swiftly and efficiently when it's not.



Setup is simple:

Since Canary is packed with built-in sensors, additional components aren't needed. That means set-up takes minutes, not days. Download the free iPhone or Android app, put Canary on a shelf or table in a central area of your home, plug it in, connect to the Internet, and you're ready to go. No tools or installation required.


See and hear what's happening:

Stream real-time video of your home with Canary's 1080p HD camera, 147-degree wide-angle lens, automatic night vision, and high-quality audio.


More than a camera:

Protect your home with Canary's 90+ dB siren, motion-activated recording, auto-arm/disarm, and automatic connection to your local authorities.


Homehealth Technology™:

Monitor air quality, temperature, and humidity to help understand how your home might affect your health.


Smart notices:
Receive instant video alerts on your iOS or Android device. Easy options allow you to respond to incidents before they turn into emergencies.


Watch live:
Stream real-time video of your home anytime, anywhere via Canary's free app.


*No contracts or monthly fees:
The free basic security package is included with purchase, featuring 12 hours of cloud video history, five permanently saved video clips and three free downloads, as well as video recording and monitoring while Canary is armed. Extended storage plans are available for as little as $4.99/month for two days of video history and unlimited video downloads. All extended plans are non-contract and customers can opt in and out as needed.


Built to learn:
Canary's algorithm-based motion detection learns over time to send you smarter notifications with fewer false alarms.


Data protection:
AES 256-bit symmetric-key encryption, Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), secure HTTP access (HTTPS) using SSL, and more.


No need to mess with a keypad or even pull out your phone. Canary senses when you come and go, and automatically changes modes.


Motion detection/night vision:
Canary's motion-activated recording automatically starts whenever it senses movement, and uses a 147° wide-angle lens with automatic night vision for superior image quality.


Trusted users:
Canary works best when everyone in your home is connected to it. It's easy to share access with your family members or roommates using the free Canary app.


Multiple devices/locations:
Canary's system can monitor multiple locations, so you can have Canary devices in your apartment, your vacation home, and anywhere else you want to secure, and control them all from the same app. Each location can have up to four Canary devices.


Backup contacts:
Don't worry if you miss a notification-trusted friends, family, or neighbors can be your backups when you're traveling or can't respond. Rest easy knowing you'll always have someone looking out for you.


What's In the Box:
One Canary device, secure setup cable, AC power adapter, microUSB cable and a quick start guide.
