From time to time, the Canary auto-mode switching feature may briefly access your GPS in order to have high confidence in your location. Battery life is very important to us and we do many things to ensure we use it sparingly. Please be aware that continued use of GPS services running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

What a divisive Application!

I understand why this application appears to have split opinions. I have been using the App with the the all-one indoor camera for a week or so. It “seems” to have so much unmet potential, why can we not just have a separate option to leave “motion activation” on or off? What must we only record Audio and Video together and not be able to mute audio recordings and still have video? Why does the video NOT record properly on motion activation? What are there horrible constant breaks in most recordings? Something that records video is not “supposed” to have several breaks in a 30 second recording? What is that about? I would like to invest in further cameras and but the software is not good, trying to connect over WiFi and “watch live” is just a folly. I have an 80-20 connection, my iPad works fine. This sometimes has the gritty feel of a Beta application. On the plus side, the video quality is excellent, very very clean video, also the UI is beautiful, so clean and smart layout, the option of free cloud storage for the first month has me too! So please keep up the updates give us a little more freedom in how we can utilize better (pretty basic) options.

High charges for a load of rubbish

I was an original backer of Canary when they started out but the software is so disappointing it’s hardly worth it now. I paid for a years Canary last year as part of a deal to buy another camera, the app has been crashing and unstable the whole time. Now after a year, they just try and charge me for another year! No email, no comms. Just trying to take the money! No thanks Canary, the competition have flown by since you launched.
