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
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
