Alerts for Alarms Going Off


Canary helped me find a gas leak in my home, but I only noticed it when I decided to watch live and I heard the CO2 alarm going off in the background. Then, I checked the the air quality sensor and confirmed that there was a problem.

If it were possible, an alert that an alarm was going off would be extremely useful.


Wow, that would be absolutely awesome. Great idea!!


Thanks @sharkitten! That’s good feedback.

While Canary doesn’t currently detect audio alerts, you can set alerts for HomeHealth. Here’s a screenshot of those settings in the app:

And we have a short guide on that here:

Let me know if that helps!


indeed awesome: this feature would be most welcome, i.e. being notified if our alarm system or the smoke alarm devices were set off, while away, hopefully soon with an update!!!
