Canary All-in-One Smart Home Security Camera


Canary's smart home device is more than just a camera, with several useful features that make it more an all-in-one home-monitoring system. These include location-based notifications, an in-depth app, and environmental data that keeps track of air...

The Canary is extremely reliable but it lacks the extra features to make it stand out in a competitive market.

Canary All-In-One Home Security review: A bird in the hand


What goes on in your house when you're not there? That's the question that Canary is here to answer with its £159 smart home security system. We trust Canary. That's the bottom line here. There's a lot about it that really feels like "the one" as smart...

Inconspicuous design, great app experience, multiple users, recognises phones to deactivate as necessary, multiple sensors and alarm features, 12-hour free timeline

Regular false recognition, no bracket for variable positioning, future potential not yet realised from multiple sensors (no IFTTT, for example), subscription cost complexity, no recording downloads

We trust Canary. That's the bottom line here. There's a lot about it that really feels like "the one" as smart home security goes. It doesn't have the face recognition technology that Netatmo's added on to Welcome but we're not sure it really needs it....

Canary All-in-One Smart Home Security Camera review


A slickly designed security camera, but comes with some hidden costs

The Canary is a useful one-box, cloud-based home security camera with high quality footage and an especially well-designed app. It’s also refreshingly easy to use, thanks to the way it leverages your smartphone. The snag is the high price and stingy...

Canary Smart Home Security Device review


If I were a shopper currently in the market for a home security system, I'd be giving Canary a good, close look. With an HD, night-vision camera and a bevy of sensors for things like motion, temperature, and air quality Canary promises to stand guard...

Canary offers impressive video quality including a highly detailed night vision mode. Its "Homehealth" sensors are accurate and helpful.

An over-sensitive motion sensor renders Canary borderline unusable, and we didn't receive text alerts when we cut the power.

Canary is packed with solid hardware, but it doesn't add up to a device we'd want to depend on.

Canary Security


When I think of Canary I think of a bird known for its singing and in a way no doubt this is how the name of this product was arrived at. It is a security alarm product that sees the intruder and then no matter what he/she does they are on camera.

To say the setup was not easy is perhaps the understatement of the year – no make that decade – as even though I live in the UK – and it agrees with that – it insists I enter a ‘state’ this however can be anything a blank space or a non-existent one it...

Canary Smart Home Security camera review


The Canary Smart Home Security camera is the latest security gadget for keeping tabs on your home when you're out and about, but is it good enough to be worth buying? We added one to our home and put it through its paces to find out.

First off, considering it's just a security camera, the Canary Smart Home Security camera looks fantastic. It's a seriously nice bit of kit, with an inconspicuous design that blends into the background

Our biggest gripe with the Canary is that it can be deactivated simply by cutting off the power - and you don't receive a notification when that does happen. Which means thieves can easily deactivate the camera if they do spot it

Solid, beautiful hardware, combined with an elegant app make for a compelling argument to pop the Canary Smart Home Security camera in your home for security, but annoying notifications, a somewhat frustrating set-up process and no easy way to mount it...

Review: Canary wireless security system for apartments and homes


Canary's system comes with everything you need to set it up. Once you download the iOS app and plug in the device, you pair it to your phone via a yellow wire (which you only need to use once). Hook up Canary to your home WiFi or wired router and it is...

As vapid and widespread as the Internet of Things segment is, it is products like the Canary wireless security system that offer a cohesive and effective example of a connected, smart, cloud-powered and app-controllable security option that is well...

Canary All-In-One Home Security Device


The Canary All-In-One Home Security Device keeps tabs on your home with 1080p video capture and sensors for air quality, humidity, and temperature, but you'll have to pay extra to use many of its features.

Simple to install. Sharp 1080p video. Crystal clear night vision. Two-Way audio. Monitors air quality. Alexa and Google Assistant voice support.

Many features require a subscription plan. No local storage. Lacks native support for IFTTT.

Live on-demand video, sharp 1080p footage, and instantaneous mobile alerts are all good reasons to consider the Canary. It installs in minutes and keeps tabs on humidity levels, room temperature, and air quality in your home, and it lets you download...

This cloud-based security system delivers features galore, but it's far from perfect.
