Will not setup. I am plugged in, yellow cord is in. WiFi s/b connected


My first canary DIED, so I bought two new canaries.
I cannot set up this new canary. Stuck up ACTIVATE screen.

  • I am plugged into electrical.
  • I an logged into WiFi.
  • The yellow cord is in the cary and the iphone.
  • I did get some light flashing and a pierce shriek, but canary does not appear to be online.
  • I also tried ethernet.


Hey there @llw212!

Can you describe what steps you took to try and activate it?

Thanks Zev. It’s fixed now. I activated by connecting through ethernet.


Great to hear! Enjoy!
