Why does the background change?
The Canary randomly selects a frame from the most recently recorded motion, and automatically assigns a screenshot as the background.
Why does it say “Set to private.” on my Home Screen?
When your device is set to private, the camera and microphone are completely off. To Watch Live, Canary needs to be in a mode that's setup to record video.
To enable Watch Live, you may need to:
- Manually switch to away mode.
- Manually disable the private setting.
- Customize home or night mode to record video.*
*Please note that video recording, and Home Mode adjustments are only available with Premium Service.
