This next-gen software is supposed to make it possible for Canary owners to view their camera's live feed via Apple TV. You should be able to check out your activity timeline from Apple TV as well. Nest announced a similar update earlier in November, but the Google/Alphabet property extended TV viewing to both Android TV and Apple TV users.
I asked Canary about this and the company said it didn't currently have plans for an Android TV integration.
In addition to Apple TV connectivity, the Canary app should now work on Android tablets and iPads -- previously, the app was limited to phones. And, it should work with Android Wear products, including the Moto 360, LG Watch, Huawei Watch (£198 at Amazon.co.uk) and .
Canary software now also supports an on-demand siren-triggering emergency button for anyone with a siren-equipped Canary Smart Home Security device (£159 at Amazon.co.uk). Canary Flex (£248 at Amazon.co.uk) models do not come with built-in sirens.
We've already reviewed Canary's Smart Home Security product, but we expect to get our hands on a Flex in short order, so we'll be sure to test out these software updates when that happens.
