The camera unit has no WiFi support. Instead, it comes via a cable to a WiFi module which is what enables a wireless connection. Having this extra device can be a hassle, especially since, unlike the camera, it is not resistant to harsh weather conditions and has to be placed indoors. See More
These sensors include: ambient light, sound, temperature, and humidity. Average temperature and humidity can help you realize how to reduce your heating bills. There's also a VoC (volatile organic compounds) sensor which reads the amount of particles in the air - a measure of air quality. If this reading is high, and you have an air filter, it's probably time to change or clean the filter. See More
IFTTT (IF This Then That) is an app that allows for custom automation. It combines triggers and actions to create recipes that are easy enough for just about anybody to create. IFTTT allows you to automate things like when you receive a specific text message from a specified number to start/stop recording, or start/stop speak & listen mode. See More
With both microphones and a speaker, you can have a conversation with somebody through the Withings Home even while you're out and about. Your voice will be carried from the iPhone and played through the Withings Home speaker, and their voice will similarly make its way to your iPhone's speaker. See More
The Canary has a viewing angle of 147 degrees, letting it see more than competing products. The 1080p resolution is crisp, and allows for digital zooming up to 3X. There are 12 infra-red LEDs that work as part of the night vision to keep recording even after the lights have gone out. See More
The Canary Security System is equipped with a siren which is rated at 90dB (similar to that of city traffic or a subway at 200ft). While not ridiculously loud, it should do the job to scare the heebie jeebies out of anybody not expecting it. See More
The free plan is limited - your history will only go back 12 hours, with 5 available bookbarks and you can download 3 videos. The $5/month ($49 annually) plan increases this to a 2 day history, 25 bookmarks, and unlimited downloads. For $10/month ($99 annually) you get 7 day history, 100 bookmarks and still get unlimited downloads. The most expensive plan at $30/month ($299 annually) gives you a 30 day timeline with unlimited bookmarks and downloads. See More
The Canary can utilize your phone's GPS to turn on and off automatically depending on where you are (when you're at home it will enter private mode, but when you leave it will activate). If you live with others, all they need to do is install the app and it won't activate when they're home either. See More
