Looks a good piece of kit is there any alternative to this thats a lot cheaper that uses phone app in sameway

Cheep

Don't you need a subscription to access the recordings?

How many phones can you set up to connect to the same camera could myself and wife download the app on seperate phones?

I recommend the Logitech cirlcle its good

Hot.

Thanks

How do you get an alert of motion detected is it just an email or will it come up on ypur phone screen like a text message alert?

I have one of these and find it useful to know what the dog is doing when left. You can 'invite' multiple phones to download the app and view - using it much like Skype or FaceTime. There is no monthly fee although you can pay a monthly fee but the advantages aren't that useful to me. With the free plan you can download any video you want to keep within 24hrs so if it detected movement it starts recording to a cloud and informs you of the movement by text allowing you to save that recording, sound a siren or alert the police etc. The customer service is excellent too.
Hope that answers some questions.

Cheers great info i was worried it just sent u an email alert that i may miss so it sends u a on screen text think il order one

Have one, it's excellent.

Love my Canary. Use the app and get all members of the household to download it and it fires an alert when it detects movement or sound and records the footage. Stored in the cloud for free for 24hrs but you can pay extra for a premium service for a weeks worth. I've had mine since April and its worked perfectly since then. Catches the cleaners, window cleaner and dog when she is left for a few hours. Luckily nothing else. 10/10.

If you want to view footage whilst on holiday you may struggle. The tech people told us the further away you are the less likely you are to be able to see anything. We could see footage sometimes in Hong Kong but hardly ever in Australia, and that was the main reason we bought them.

What happens if your in a place that doesnt have wifi and u get an alert ? Can u watch the livestream ok on normal phone internet ie 3g?

I'm constantly tempted by one of these..but they are just so expensive for what they are. It's basically just an IP camera that happens to also have a built in speaker + Temp/Humid sensor.

At £50, that would be a good deal - as a typical HD indoor IP Camera with night vision and mobile/cloud access & alerting is £30ish from D-Link (and they are much smaller than the canary too) so paying another £20 for the extra features is OK..but at £90 (or the normal £100+) It's just too much.

Their marketing is very good though and I do kind of want one, even though my brain knows it's exceptionally overpriced for what it is. Still, have some heat for the deal as it's the cheapest I have seen one of these.

Didn't think my canary was under threat, I'll have to padlock his cage X)

I got one for £95 from Amazon this week which was a good price so this is even better. Liking it so far especially the way I can scare the crap out of my wife by remotely setting off the siren lol worth the money just for that alone!

Does this need any wiring or just a plug socket. I'm very tempted but just want to check as it doesn't say on the website. Thanks

By way of alternative, you may wish to consider a y-cam instead. Seems like the same functionality as Canary (including smart phone access and notifications) except it offers free 7-day cloud access rather than 24-hrs Canary provides. Have been using this for the last year and pretty happy with it so far. £79.95 over Black Friday.

The string between your two paper cups must be too long.

They have the all black one too. Thanks!

Can this be set to store video to local nas?

Looks good, but no audio alarm right?

Thanks, ordered one with discount code.

Got a y-cam already and its poor.
No 2 way talking or alarm.
The app just doesnt work properly. The location tracking works a few days then will turn on and off while in the house. Also if this mode did work, there is no night mode so it wont record while in the house. So i have just been using it with a fixed schedule. Will be relegated to watching over the garden.
Also quite slow using the live stream, can wait about 10-15 seconds to start whereas an older camera ive had loaded instantly.

One-off I believe

This is a great price for Canary! I have a Welcome camera from Netatmo which is currently on Amazon UK at £119 Inc. Vat, bought it for face recognition feature so the only time my phone alerts me is when a unknown face walks into my house. Because I've names all my friends and family members I have dumbed down all actions for these people, also no charge for storage as it comes built in with 8GB SD card (If I want to store more footage I can use my Drop Box account that Netatmo have in their settings)... Reading some earlier comments you shouls be able to see live view of any stored video's anywhere in the world you have access to wifi or 3g/4g phone signal.

I do believe you're right! And markftmuk makes some valid points around its other weaknesses also. Maybe it's time for me to change models also

It does have an alarm but no two-way audio - good fair review here: youtube.com/wat…9YA
I want something like this but none of the current devices on the market seem like they are quite 'there'.

Saying unavailable to me

sold out

looks good will have to have one

Oos

Anyone price matched yet?
