What Sets Canary Apart

Simple, flexible, and powered by AI technology. Welcome to Canary. This home security company allows you to choose your pricing and contract length. Get the basic package with no-contract (but high upfront fees), or join the $10/mo Canary membership and get big discounts and neat features like zone masking, two-way talking, and 30-day video storage. Canary’s achilles heal is that it doesn’t support home automation features. See what our experts say in our Canary review.

      About Canary Security

      The Canary system is rather simple. Although it uses multiple sensors and cameras, it relies on the abilities of a few pieces of integral equipment to create a virtual boundary around the home and detect changes in the home’s environment. Instead, the system relies on the wide angle lens of the camera and the All-in-One device’s ability to sense changes in your home’s environment. Check out the full review of Canary here.

      Surveillance Cameras

      Canary cameras offer “watch live video” and two-way communication through either the Flex or View cameras.

      Mobile Alerts

      Canary offers apps for both iOS and Android systems, providing mobile capabilities. It also allows for two-way communication and the sending of alerts and notifications.

      DIY Installation

      All of the devices offered by Canary can be easily installed by the homeowner.

      24/7 Monitoring
      24/7 MONITORING

      Canary is set up for self-monitoring through “Watch Live” technology. The system is set up to immediately notify law enforcement if there is a breach in the security portion of the system and the alarm is set off.

      Power Outage Protection

      The system offers a battery backup with rechargeable batteries. When it comes to connectivity, there is an ethernet port, as well as Wi-Fi connectivity. It also runs on a low-wave blue-tooth connection.

      Remote Control

      The remote features offered by the Canary system include the ability to arm and disarm the alarm and cameras through the use of a mobile app that is supported by geoservices.

      Voice Response

      The View and All-in-One devices offer two-way communication and allow you to interact with Google Assistant, Wink and Amazon Echo.

        I have a canary camera that Installed outside but the power cord and the cable did not withstand the heat and the humidity. the Camera works just fine. Is it possible to replace just those parts that I mention without having to but the camera also?

          Hi Ernie,
          Sorry to hear that. We’re not Canary, so you’d need contact them to ask about replacing those parts.
