With the devices Canary Flex, Canary Pro and Canary View, the American manufacturer Canary Connect currently offers three surveillance cameras with various features and price ranges for monitoring your own home.
The Canary Flex is the most expensive of the three models (1 year of premium service included) at €199 in the Amazon store (currently € 199.00*) and, true to its name, can be flexibly adapted to many situations inside and outside the house. This is made possible by features such as a freely rotating, magnetic base, a long-lasting battery, weather resistance, night vision, wide-angle lens and WLAN connectivity.
Furthermore, in addition to HD image resolution, the Flex also offers a speaker, microphone, and person and motion detection. Data protection is based on encryption of recorded data during transmission and storage in the manufacturer’s cloud.
You can control all Canary devices in your possession via the manufacturer’s smartphone app, which can be expanded and fully used with a paid premium service.
We took a close look at the Canary Flex and would like to report on its strengths and weaknesses in everyday use in this article. The test devices were an Android smartphone and a Windows 10 desktop PC. We were also provided access to the premium service by the manufacturing company for this test. Logically, not all features of this normally paid access are also offered by the free variant. We will therefore also go into the differences between the two subscriptions where necessary. As always, we hope you enjoy reading!
