Chapter in this post:
The Canary Flex, the relatively new surveillance camera from Canary, should be robust outside and elegant inside. Either with a mains connection or wirelessly thanks to the built-in battery, it can detect movements outdoors and indoors, record videos in HD quality, let you know about activities via the app on your smartphone and much more. You can buy the Canary Flex surveillance camera from Amazon in black or white. Certainly also interesting for all those who are at this post asked if there is such a solution;)
The Canary Flex can be integrated into the manufacturer's security and alarm systems already available on the market and used flexibly. The power cord is magnetically attached to the device, which is somewhat reminiscent of the old MagSafe power cords on MacBooks. This means that the camera can be moved quickly from one location to another and can be used very flexibly inside, outside and anywhere in or around the house. The only important requirement: a WiFi network through which activities, pictures, videos and notifications can be shared.
With all the advantages of the system or the surveillance camera for indoors and outdoors, there are also some points that can be viewed negatively. The videos and pictures made by the Canary Flex are of course not saved locally. They are stored in the cloud, from which they can be downloaded to a smartphone or computer. In addition, a two-way speech function is also provided (for use as a baby monitor, intercom, emergency call system, etc.), but this can only be activated with a subscription. Here is a comparison of the services:

If you want to get an impression of the Canary Flex surveillance camera in picture and sound, then I have the right video for you here:
Both the Canary All-in-one security system as well as the individual Flex cameras can be connected and controlled via the WLAN with the manufacturer's free app. the App was only updated a few days ago and is now also ready for iOS 11 on iPhone and iPad (as of September 22, 2017). In addition, the app can be connected to the Apple Watch so that you are also informed about the security of your property on your wrist:

What do you think of this WLAN surveillance camera with its numerous possible uses and the connection with iPhone, Apple Watch and Co.? Do you have any questions or suggestions about the product or have you been able to subject the Canary Flex to a test? I look forward to your comments on the product!
