We were recently introduced to a new device that we think we will be a game changer in the home security market. It’s called Canary and it’s a sleek, small device which contains an HD video camera and sensors that track everything from temperature and air quality to vibration, sound, and movement. Controlled entirely from an app on your smart phone or tablet, Canary sends alerts when it senses something abnormal—from movement when your home is supposed to be empty, to temperature spikes which could indicate a fire. You can then decide how to respond to those alerts.
Over time, Canary learns your home’s rhythms to send even smarter alerts.
Canary is not currently on the market, but you can find more information on crowd-funding opportunities and pre-orders at Indegogo:
