Frequently Asked Questions

 
Does Lily have obstacle avoidance?
Currently, Lily does not have any obstacle avoidance capabilities. We have found that most outdoor activities do not need obstacle avoidance because Lily can follow the user’s path. But again, there are no guarantees that Lily will not hit anything while it is following you. If Lily is about to hit an object you can press the middle button on the tracking device and Lily will stop, hold its position, and continue to film you.

How much does Lily cost?
You can pre-order Lily today for $499 USD. After pre-sales are over, Lily will be priced at $999 plus applicable taxes and shipping. Ships February 2016

Will Lily videos have sound?
Yes, the tracking device has a microphone that records high quality sound. Lily automatically synchronizes audio from the tracking device with video it records.

Can Lily stream video?
Lily streams low-resolution live video to the companion app to help you frame your shots.
