Top Customer Reviews
The product & service is perfect for what I am looking for: passive monitoring of my home (now office too) when I’m not there, and I’m not particularly interested in a monthly service plan. The algorithm they’ve built to identify suspicious movement that I can verify on my phone is exactly what I was seeking.
Canary Flex is an improvement on the original model in four areas:
1) Built-in battery – long-life, don’t have to plug in if you recharge weekly
2) Outdoor usage / weatherproof
3) Flexible magnetic base allows for vertical (up/down) movement
4) Long power cord A+++++++++++
The battery is certainly the most useful addition and it’s built-in – this is critical for me, since I have a battery backup on my internet & communications it will continue to work even in the event of a power loss.
Key for me was integration into the app that I already have on my phone – seamless set-up connecting to the wifi and all set. Now I have monitoring capabilities via Canary’s software both at home and my office.
Considering another unit to watch the back door as well.
Overall a quality device integrated with a great service that connects directly with your smartphone.
During pairing, for some odd reason, the Canary requires both Bluetooth and Location Services to be on (Android install). This caused my pairing to fail multiple times as I did not permit Canary to have Location permissions, I didn't think it was necessary and didn't want to share this. After multiple attempts at pairing failed, I enabled Location permissions and the devices were successfully paired. Post-pairing, I removed Canary's location permission and the device has been functioning fine since. I would prefer if the device could connect simply through Bluetooth only. I also did not like that the camera required an address during setup.
Setup is very simple and if you are looking for a camera to plug in, pair, and get going, this is it. I found no options to set a static IP address, and there is no web app accessible from a browser, you must use an Android or iPhone. You also only get 24 hours of recorded video via the Canary Cloud without a subscription. There is no SD card slot. The Canary Flex does not have a RJ-45 connection for Ethernet, and must always be connected to WiFi.
The camera's performance overall is sufficient for home indoor and outdoor use for general surveillance. Due to the 720p camera and wide field of view, pixelation is visible on targets 15 to 20 feet away. Therefore, the camera is good for large, overview shots to determine movements and behaviors of targets. Since you can't change the camera's focal length, you are stuck with the 116 degree field of view. As mentioned before, you can't change the camera's aspect ratio either, so a hallway shot looking at a door results in a lot of wasted wall being recorded.
The camera performed well in low light conditions and with a super bright LED flashlight SureFire 6PX Tactical Single-Output LED Flashlight with anodizded aluminum body, Black shone directly into the imager (see images) with no severe blooming or image degradation The camera's wide dynamic range compensation needs improvement (see images) where the camera is positioned in a scene with bright back lighting and a dark foreground.
For recording and motion detection, you must keep the device plugged in to capture an entire event. When not plugged in, recording began approximately 5 seconds after motion was detected, resulting in me already passing the camera and not able to tell who entered. This is mainly why I would recommend the camera be placed in a location where overall movements and behaviors are being monitored like a living room or backyard. When the camera is plugged in, the Canary does a wonderful job of recording a second or two pre-motion so that you can see the entire event.
Overall, I am satisfied with the device for home use or personal use. I will be using it as a hotel room camera when I am traveling and will use my Zuni Travel WiFi router ZuniConnect Travel Router + USB Charging Port to power and communicate with the device.
I had high hopes for this camera and I really wanted to like it since I already have two canary systems. But the poor battery life and the fact that the amount of cloud storage reduces the more canary devices you own (on the free plan) made me return the Canary and buy an Arlo pro.
I tried to install the camera outside and have it connected to a power outlet. But the proprietary connector cable is not long enough to reach my nearest outlet. And they do not sell longer cables on their website.
Also, an FYI: On battery power, motion has to be detected for a longer period for a notification to come through (even though I set the sensitivity to high) to your phone.
Our main reason why we purchased the C Flex was to have a capable baby monitor. The 8-10 second live video lag defeats that purpose. Hopefully they create a patch to fix the issue. I really don't want to sit with a $190 laggy camera.
