Canary is a smart home security device. It is designed to be very easy to set up, just connect it to your wireless, load the app on your smart phone and put your mind at rest knowing your home is safe.

This smart security device comes in three colours (matte black, classic white, silver) and features a whole bunch of sensors to watch over your home when you are not there.

  • HD Video
  • Night Vision
  • Motion Detection
  • Microphone
  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • Air Quality
  • 3-Axis Accelerometer

Every aspect can be controlled from your smart phone to make your home smarter and safer. Some of the most interesting features of the mobile app, that learns and improves from user behaviour are live video & sensor data, push notifications for alerts, a media archive (video, audio), guided action plans for emergencies, automatic arm & disarm thru geofencing and backup alerts to friends or family.

Similar to Cube Senors or Qgate but much more integrated and user-friendly this simple and affordable device by founders Adam Sager, Chris Rill and Jon Troutman transforms your living space into a quantified home. Canary started an indiegogo campaign and managed to reach its first goal of 100k US$ in only a few hours. The developers now set a new goal of  1.25M  US$ to add features like an ethernet port and adaptive streaming video quality.
