Purchased Canary a couple of days ago and was enjoying it so far. Looks cool, switches from Home to Away and vice versa without any issues (Android). I was happy with it until today, when I wanted to test the actual motion detection and notifications delay time.
I have disabled automatic mode-switching from within the app, disabled by phone’s wifi and bluetooth, hid in the corner where the camera can’t see me and manually switched to away mode. The camera’s bottom light turned on, I have waited about a minute and then jumped out in front of it. I was walking around the room for good 5 minutes, but have received no notifications at all. Timeline is completely empty.
I have cleared app data, reinstalled the app, restarted the phone numerous times, but it just doesn’t send me any notifications and timeline remains empty. I have tried night mode with notifications enabled - nothing.
So, I am just wondering if the device might be faulty or am I doing something wrong? What is the best way to test if it actually detects motion and functions as intended?
Thank you in advance.
