If you often receive unnecessary notifications for normal activity such as shadows or pet movement, you can now control which types of events send you notifications.
By adjusting your notification settings, 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.
You can choose to manage notifications for all devices at a location, or for individual devices at the same location.
Tap Set All Devices or Set Each Device to select your preference.
Adjust Your Settings
By default, Canary’s notification settings should filter out the majority of background activity like TVs, ceiling fans, and other repetitive motion.
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.
