Canary Flex is the most innovative and versatile home security camera available. With everything Canary Flex can do, and everywhere it can go, we want to provide some tips to help you get the most out of your device. Read on for some easy ways to make sure Canary Flex works best for your home.
If you think you’ve found a suitable spot, check the Wi-Fi icon on the home screen of the app, and try streaming Watch Live from your Canary Flex device. If video plays without interruption and the Wi-Fi icon indicates MED or HIGH, you’ve found a good place for your Canary Flex to live.
Plugged In vs. Battery
If you’re using Canary Flex indoors, we recommend you keep your device plugged in for best performance.
If you want to use Canary Flex outdoors, the device has a rechargeable battery designed to last multiple months with normal usage. Set it up wire-free or plug your device in outdoors using a weatherproof, covered outlet if you see a green dot on the bottom of the power adapter.
Canary Flex operates within a temperature range from -4° to 113° F, with deviations up to 122° F. Please note that battery life will drain more quickly in low temperatures.
To make sure your Canary Flex lasts for as long as possible on a single charge, position your device to eliminate as much background activity as possible while still monitoring the desired area.
You can always check the status of your battery life through the battery icon on the app home screen*. When the battery runs low, we recommend that you recharge when you’ll be home. Learn more about extending battery life here.
Customize how much or how little activity is required to send you a notification in your Motion notifications settings. For example, if you have a pet and don’t want to be notified when it moves, drag the slider to the left. Still getting too much background motion? Try changing the angle or direction of your device.
