New Canary Security Device

I added a new Canary security device. If you don’t know what a Canary device is you can view more information from the link below. What it has is a video camera that captures movement within it’s wide lens and stores the video in the cloud. It arms itself and disarms itself when ever you leave your home and arrive back home using your cell phone and it’s geolocation. If Canary detects motion while it is armed then it sends you a notice on your cell phone and the video that caused the motion so you can review it and if it is an intruder then it provides links to call the police or medical for fire depending on what it detects. It also shows you the temperature of the room and the humidity and the air quality. I just recently received my Canary and so far I love it.

Here are a few of it’s highlights:

  • See and Hear: Stream real-time video of your home with Canary’s 1080p HD camera, 147 degree wide-angle lens, automatic night vision, and high-quality audio.
  • More Than a Camera: Protect your home with Canary’s 90+ dB siren, motion-activated recording, auto-arm/disarm, and optional professional monitoring.
  • HomeHealth Technology: Monitor air quality, temperature, and humidity to help understand how your home might affect your health.
  • Intelligent Notifications: Receive instant video alerts on your iOS or Android device.
  • No Installation/Contracts/Monthly Fees Required: Plug in Canary, connect to the Internet and you’re ready to go. Free secure cloud storage included.

    Just wanted to know if you are still using the Canary All-in-One security device and if so are you satisfied with the product?

    I stumbled to your blog cause I was having problems viewing my Defender security system via my browser. I have the AT&T U Verse with the Pace 5031NV modem. I believe the problem was I opened the 5000 port for the http but only TCP and not UDP. It was giving me the option of choosing either TCP or UDP and not both and I chose TCP only. I just need to find how to add the UDP as well. I can view from my iphone just fine using the ClearVu app.

    Sorry for the long story. I do have the Defender for the outside of the house and just wanted to know your input on the Canary system for the inside of the house. Does Canary have WiFi or is it hard wired ethernet?

    I also want to thank you for serving our country. God bless you and the U.S.A.

    • Yes Arek I still have it, still use it, and I love it. The video from it is outstanding. It also has the ability to auto arm when both my wife’s and my iPhones have left the home. I can also use this function to trigger my wink system to turn off the lights and lock the doors. Then when I return it triggers the wink system again to turn the lights back on. I have mine connected by ethernet cable but it also has wi-fi.

      • Wi-Fi would be more suitable in my situation. Just to make sure, I don’t need a PC connected to the network correct? I only have AT&T Pace modem which has Wi-Fi. I can open ports on the modem if needed.
        Thanks!

        • You don’t need a PC connected to the network. It does use your mobile phone to initially setup the canary plus download the app for your phone. I didn’t have to open any ports on the modem.
