If you prefer more, they offer three cloud storage options.The base cloud package offers 5 days of rolling video storage. It uses smart triggers and video loops to record activity in a manner that is very similar to what Piper offered.From the app, you should be able to view who is home and who is away as well as view a detailed activity timeline that includes logs from your camera and any attached sensors. There is very little latency when trying to view video, and they frequently provide updates and new features that benefit, not punish, the customer.Through the app, you can also set up push notifications of events, view saved video clips, live stream from your camera, and customize settings. Canary offers several built-in automation features like a temperature sensor, humidity sensor, and air quality sensor.You can share video via text, email, or even to social sites like Facebook.Membership is .99/month for the first five devices and .99/month for additional cameras. All users can review three hours of snapshot activity for free.It also works best when streaming video from Wi-Fi and viewing video from a PC works better than using the app.Angee plans to launch an i OS and Android app simultaneously. At this time, there is little information about the app, but they have shared an app preview.
Their Apple TV app allows you to view a live video stream and view recorded clips from all of your Canary cameras.
However, after using the family sharing feature, I found it flawed as family member access is not customizable.
For example, you can’t give your family access to just one camera nor can each family member set their own alerts.
As an example, I gave my family access to a camera placed at my grandmother’s.
They can now view the camera at my grandmother’s and also the camera I have at my house. And while they want alerts from my grandmother’s house, they don’t want alerts from my house. Finally, although the Nest app provides an overall clean experience, the app is not impervious to the issues facing the Canary app.
