Already available in the US, the Canary View smart home security camera has now launched in the UK for £79.

Complementing the flagship Canary Pro, the Canary View is equipped with the latest security features to help users keep their homes and families safe, claims the manufacturer. This includes automatic motion detection, one-touch access to first responders and AI-enabled person recognition. 

The Canary View camera allows users to see what is happening at home from their mobile phone, tablet or computer at any time, from anywhere in the world. Capable of deterring burglars, monitoring home nurseries or to simply keep an eye on the kids and pets, it keeps everyone in the know with smart notifications sent directly to a user’s mobile phone or tablet whenever the device detects activity in monitored locations, with a variety of options to respond.  

  • 1080p HD video with night-vision and 147 degree wide-angle lens
  • AI-enabled smart detection notifications to alert users of suspicious activity while avoiding false alarms
  • Data Security – encrypted video with a “private option” to turn off camera/microphone at any time
  • Compatibility with Alexa and Google Home devices


Designed for ease of use, the Canary View can be placed in any desired location and connected to the power supply and local Wi-Fi network. Unusually, the 15cm-high device doesn’t look as much like a security camera as its competitors.

The manufacturer claims the Canary View delivers razor-sharp HD-quality video due to its automatic night-vision and a 147° wide-angle lens providing full insight into captured activity, whether night or day.

Furthermore camera and microphone can be completely switched off by setting the camera into a privacy-specific mode. All data and videos are encrypted using security standards similar to those found in online banking. Information is then stored in high security certified data centres, ensuring that private information stays private.

For a limited time only, Canary is offering a special launch deal. The Canary View camera is available with purchase of one year Premium Service Plan (£79), which includes 30-days of video memory, Canary Talk (two-way audio) and a Safety Button which contacts the police and informs them of the user’s immediate location, regardless of where they may be.

The Canary Pro indoor camera, with a built-in siren and environmental sensors, and the battery-powered Canary Flex indoor/outdoor camera, are also both available.
