Presence alerts inform you when members of your location come and go. This feature relies on the placement and size of your geofence to provide you with up-to-date information through push notifications.
If a member of your location leaves, you will receive a push notification on your phone informing you that the person has left. Additionally, if a member arrives at that location, you will receive a notification that they have arrived. Enabling this feature will provide you with notifications for all members of your location, however, please note that it only works for users you have invited to access the Canary devices with their own email addresses. You will not receive notifications about your whereabouts, though, we believe you know where you are.
To receive presence alerts, follow these steps:
- Open your Canary app.
- Tap on the gear icon in the top right corner of the Dashboard.
- Tap on My location.
- Tap on Edit users
- Press Presence Notifications to turn on the feature.
To experience optimal performance of this feature, please ensure all members are on the same Wi-Fi network as your location and have Wi-Fi turned on for their phone.
