All in one security system
The Canary Flex is a HD security camera that can be used indoor and outdoor, wirelessly or plugged in. Its camera captures remarkably crisp, HD video in 1080p with a wide-angle lens of 116 degrees. The wide angle view ensures a whole room or space can be monitored using only the Canary Flex. When dusk approaches, the automatic high-quality night vision is activated, capturing footage up to seven metres away with some ambient lighting in the room or space. The Flex’s built-in microphone picks up high-quality audio and paired with its built-in speaker this allows two-way conversations from the Canary Flex to your smartphone or tablet.

Positioning the Flex outdoors will not faze the security camera as it can withstand tough weather such as rain, snow, heat or cold and still produce HD quality video recording.

The Canary Flex has an innovative design; placed on the mount with a cutting-edge 360-degree magnetic swivel base, you can position the Flex at the perfect angle. Simply stick the mount onto a flat surface, snap into place and twist in any direction you wish.

Operate wirelessly or plug it in
Thanks to Canary Flex’s 6,700 mAh lithium-ion battery, you can operate the security camera wire-free on a single charge with its extended battery life, making it perfect for outdoor use. The Flex can also be plugged into one of your mains sockets around your home to keep your security camera continuously powered and monitoring.

Dual-band WiFi technology
This security camera delivers a reliable WiFi performance due to its dual-band technology. No additional hubs are needed, meaning you will have no extra clutter laying around.

How does the remote monitoring work?
Canary allows you to monitor your property remotely with free basic 24/7 live viewing on your smart device, motion activated previews, 24 hours of video storage and timeline, automatic arming/disarming, activity zone control, and one touch access to responders. This experience is free and comes with the basic features , if you want the full-fat experience you can upgrade to the complete experience which includes full length motion activated video alerts, 30 days of video storage/timeline, unlimited downloads of video to your camera roll, two-way Canary talk, desktop streaming, and custom modes for extra personalisation. The complete experience is great value compared to other smart monitoring brands and is perfect for you if you want to take your Canary device to the next level. You also have the option to subscribe annually and receive two months free!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish night view functionality I bought this on the same day I bought a similar Motorola product, one destined for my house and one for my mother's. This one was supposed to be for my place. I installed it on the 9th may and underwhelming is, to put it mildly. I also have the internal version of the Canary Cam which is much better. But if you are looking for an external Camera to be used outside and in the dark, this product isn't one I would recommend. In night light absent conditions just doesn't have a powerful enough IR illuminator. Basically useless. Will be returning it to shop asap for a refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend the product Absolutely loved this product. Does exactly what it says - connects to phone and shows footage. Has several modes, and I can choose to turn the video on and off whenever I want. Quality of picture is great. Sends notifications whenever there is a change, so that is very helpful. Good customer care as well - they were able to answer my queries very quickly via email. Overall - highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little tech - a must-have for household security Having never used any security tech, we bought this last month and it's been a great way of keeping an eye on our house and belongings. Just this last week, the video alerts let us know that some maintenance men had arrived unannounced, letting themselves into our rented accommodation without asking! One quick call to the landlady who reassured us who they were and what they were doing! Sleek in design and easy to set-up, it's a great piece of kit that can be personalised to your security needs. Would recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't bother for external use I already have Canary internal cameras and they are brilliant day or night. However I bought the flex for outside my front door as it has a speaker/microphone too, only to discover you can't secure it to the wall securley like a normal external security camera i.e. with tamper resistant fittings, it only fastens to its base by a magnet. You can't find this out until you open the box, although it says magnet base on the box, it also says you get wall fixings, you've no idea what type of wall fixings until you open the box, only to find one screw that the magnetic base just hooks on to. Who in their right mind is going to leave £200 worth of kit on a wall outside their house that someone can walk off with as it's only hanging on via magnetic base? Serious desigh floor Canary if you expect people to buy this for outdoor security use, especially at ground floor level to make use of the speaker and microphone functionality. Also bear in mind it only has night vision of 7 meters, so if you put it any higher up the house out of reach, not only is the microphone and speaker out of range for useful purposes, the night vision soon will be too. In addition, if you fitted higher up the house out of reach with the aid of a ladder and decide to run it off battery, you'll need to get the ladders out every time you want to charge the battery.. If you have common sense, then this is not fit for outdoor use. Would have been a wonderful product if it had secure outdoor mounting brackets, then at least you'd need some tools to remove it before you can steal it, and before anyone says "at least you'll see who stole it", you won't if they've covered their face :) Not providing secure fixings for outdoor use has in my opinion rendered this product useless for outdoor security camera purposes. Someone at Canary really didn't think this through when advertising it for external use. I didn't go for the Ring front doorbell solution with microphone speaker and camera as didn't really want a doorbell and the ring camera is only 720p, and I already have brilliant Canary internal cameras. It's a shame Canary didn't get this right as they have done with the internal solutions. I took it back and got a refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great clear picture and video playback I've had this about a month now and am very pleased. Already own canary all in one to keep an eye on pets and chose this one as it's wireless. It's small and lightweight yet sturdy. Battery life great and easily and quickly charged. More expensive than others but worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good and flexible outdoor security camera Adding this to an existing interior Canary. Setup was fine and it works as expected. So far, battery life is not so great - I suspect that as it's got a low WiFi signal, it is drawing more power than usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera Great addition to the canary range. Excellent video quality and app is easy to use.

How far away from the WiFi does it work from .

Asked by: Tacky gary
This would depend entirely on how strong your wifi router is as well as how many walls or doors are between the camera and the wifi router.

How long does a battery last. Assuming outdoor mounted and viewing a front door.  Can you set a mask area for enacting the record - so not to film passing traffic? Thus saving battery life. Or is always recording ?

Asked by: Dec907
In normal use the battery can last up to 3 months. Recording is triggered by the Passive infrared sensor which will turn the camera on to start recording when it detects heat and movement.

Hi, I'd want to use this outdoors so want to keep it discreet to avoid theft but not so out of reach that charging the battery is a big chore. For night vision, does it have LEDs which glow and make it much more visible than during the day? Tx, Ed

Asked by: Ed the Eagle
There is a single IR LED in this unit for night vision, which may be visible at night.
