Canary today at CES announced a new indoor security camera called the “Canary View,” which comes with a cheaper $99 price tag thanks to the removal of certain features from the original Canary device (via The Verge).
Specifically, the Canary View lacks the company’s “HomeHealth” technology, which monitors a home’s temperature, humidity, and overall air quality in the $169 Canary All-in-One camera. Otherwise, Canary View will perform all of the basic security camera functions, including iPhone compatibility, 1080p video capture, two-way Canary Talk, intelligent motion alerts, and more.
The device has a 147-degree wide-angle lens to capture footage, and can automatically transition to night vision when motion alerts appear in the dark. Some features on the Canary View — including Canary Talk — are limited to paying Canary Membership subscribers. The membership costs $9.99/month and updated last October when the company began charging for previously free features for its security cameras, citing “significant” cloud expenses.
The Canary View camera is available to purchase today on the company’s website for $99.
