Presence alerts inform you when members of your location come and go. It relies on the placement and size of your geo-fence, and provides you with information that you can find on your timeline in a more accessible manner 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. Alternatively, if a member of your location 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. You will not receive notifications about your own whereabouts though, we believe you know where you are.
To receive these alerts, follow these steps:
- Open your Canary app.
- Tap on the three lines in the top right corner.
- 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.
