If you often receive unnecessary notifications for normal activity such as shadows or pet movement, you can adjust your motion notification settings to control which types of events send you notifications.
Canary will continue to record all motion events in any mode you have customized to record video, but you’ll only get notifications for events that interest you.
To access your motion notification settings:
Adjust Your Settings
If you’d like to receive fewer or more notifications, adjust the slider accordingly. For example, if you have a pet and wish to receive fewer notifications when it moves, drag the slider to the left.
Every home is different, so you may need to experiment with your settings to achieve your desired frequency of notifications.
Motion events that send a notification are easily identifiable by the motion icon in the lower right of the clip, so you can quickly find and review them.
