Canary Pro and Canary Flex come equipped with automatic night vision. Canary uses an ambient light sensor (ALS) to detect light levels. When there is insufficient light to record clearly, your device will automatically use night vision. When night vision is activated you may notice dim red lights on the front of the Canary and hear a small click. These red lights are infrared (IR) LEDs and the click is the infrared filter being removed from the camera lens.
Infrared light is invisible to the human eye, but not to Canary. These LEDs are used as a light source for night vision. All video from your Canary devices will be in black and white when night vision is activated. When there is enough ambient light to record clearly in color, your device will automatically stop using night vision.
Note: Currently there is no way to manually toggle night vision on or off from the Canary app.
