    Simple to set up! Easy to use!

    I'm VERY satisfied with my Canary. I use it to monitor my apartment and pets when I'm not home. It was easy to set up and the iPhone app has a sleek interface. It has all the features I need (live streaming to my iPhone, alarm, night vision, motion detection) and even some I didn't know I wanted (temperature, humidity and air quality sensors). The wide-angle lens is perfect to cover my living room, kitchen and front door (gotta love NYC apartment layouts)! I'd recommend this product to anyone looking for an easy-to-use home monitoring system.

    We love our new Canary! On top of giving us peace of mind when we leave the home, it's become a great way to spy on our adorable dog when we're at work. Because it's motion activated, any time the dog moves past or within range of it's wide sensors (and presumably if a thief entered our apartment) it sends a notification to your phone via the app. Additionally, you can use the "Watch Live" feature if you simply want to watch your dog/cat/child/spouse while they are at home and you're not. It's also got an elegant, sleek design that can easily blend into a bookshelf. Some features I especially appreciate: the app sensing when I am "at home" and "away," for automated arming and disarming of the Canary; air quality & temperature monitors; being able to bookmark and comment on recorded video clips; and installation ease-- literally took us only 15 minutes! In short: I highly recommend this as a product to renters and/or homeowners who want a cost-effective, simple way to secure their homes, with the added benefit of being able to connect to your family when you're away.

    I was surprised how efficient and helpful this camera is I know people state it is hard to set up it can be complicated but you just have to follow directions and be patient like everything else. This product helps me keep in touch with my folks at home and a eye on the pups when I am in and out of the house I would recommend highly not only because of the 2way feature but also Has temp and the air flow and etc as well. @@@@@@@@ Alerts are a plus @@@@@@@

    I purchased my Canary after much research. I was torn between the Canary and the Nest. In the end I liked that the Canary stops recording when I'm home and that I could set up a night time schedule so that it can record when it detects motion when I'm sleeping! I love how seamless it is. It automatically arms when I leave and automatically disarms when I arrive home. It doesn't add an additional "to do" to my day! Also it is extremely well made. Needless to say, I'm more then satisfied.

    The Canary Home Security system is working very well as advertised. It is quite sensitive but the sensitivity can be adjusted. I love the fact that I can control it remotely.

    The Canary Home Security gave me exactly what I wanted; peace of mind. I can check in on my house at any point in the day, and it does a very good job of alerting me when there's any motion within it's view. Great product and easy to use.

    Great camera for security or just to see what's going on at home. Has home and away mode as well as night mode so if your home it won't record unless it's during the night. The

    I set this up with many online help searches for my inlaws android phone and it stopped a break in and robbery from occurring last week. It works well with alerts and a loud alarm but is only able to monitor a small area like an apartment and would not work for a multi entry house without purchasing one for each entry. Overall good product after you get it setup for an apartment dweller at an affordable price compared to the major alarm companies fees.

    Canary is a great device. I have one and two at my mother's house - makes it easy to check on things. It just works and works without any interaction from anyone.

    We bought two Canary cameras to put in our aging parents' home. They are in declining health and refused nursing care. These cameras have extended their independence and time at home, as well giving my family and I the peace of mind knowing we can ensure their safety at any time of day.

    This is a great alternative to those who are looking for a home security system without added monthly fees. The basic model plan allows you to see several days of video footage, access environmental information, and alerts. Highly recommended!!

    Bought this device on a recommendation of a friend. I'm glad I did as it gives me more assurance that no one is breaking into the house and a nice feature is the temperature and air conditions in the house. Especially in the winter months when you "don't" want the heat to quit when your not home.

    Great Home Monitoring Solution

    Was very quick and easy to set up. Very few false positive notifications. Love the privacy feature which shuts the system off when you are or other identified people are in the home. Automatically turns the system on when you leave. Easy to control and monitor with the iPhone app. I have had two for a couple of months now and I am very happy with it. The devices monitor air quality, temperature and humidity levels too. Would be nice if air quality details were made available for each type of gas it monitors.

    I bought two different brands and the Canary is far superior. Wide angle coverage, great clarity, sends notifications to my phone when there is any sound or movement, and best of all it automatically arms and disarms based on when I leave the house and when I come back in. The only thing that would make it better in future models is if the camera followed the object it detects.

    Canary Love

    I love my Canary! Not only is it hilarious to finally watch my cat's shenanigans while I'm not at home, but I love being able to check out my apartment remotely when the building manager or utility person stops by while my husband and I are at work. I feel much more in control of my home's security. We live in SF with no central HVAC so it's also awesome to now track the temperature in our apartment. The product is small and sleek and I love how easily it connects to my iPhone. I'll admit I had a bit of a glitch setting the product up but realized it's because I just got the new iPhone 6s and there was some issue connecting. We used my husband's iPhone 5s instead and the setup worked just fine. I'm also a geek about design details so I especially loved the simplicity and design of the packaging and overall setup.
