Canary brings person detection to its cameras to help avoid false positives


Canary’s finally bringing one of its most requested features to its full line of connected home security cameras. After spending some time in beta, person detection will be rolling out over the course of the next six weeks to all of the company’s existing customers.

The feature utilizes a combination of AI and machine learning the company calls “Canary Vision,” in order to differentiate people from other kinds of movements. As someone who’s tested both the standard Canary all-in-one and the more portable Flex, I can attest to the fact that a lack of intelligent detection was one of both products’ biggest downsides.
