Phone powered off


With phone powered off, Canary still functions; how is this?


Hi @ron2fs,

Your Canary connects to your Wi-Fi network independently of your phone, and will continue to record video and upload it to the Canary Cloud if it’s set to a mode that records even if the phone is off. While the phone is powered off you won’t be able to receive notifications when motion is detected, and the Canary won’t be able to automatically switch modes based on your location. However, once you power back on and sign into the app you’ll find any video your Canary recorded available in the Timeline for you to view.

Does that answer your question? If not let me know and I’m happy to explain further!
