If you’re like me, you just don’t want to go through the hassle of having a security system installed.They’ll be there to do the installation sometime between the 5th and 12th of the month, sometime between the times of 7AM to 7PM. And DIY is COMPLETELY out of the question, tools are not my friend. Enter Canary, the first smart home security device for everyone.
From the Canary Indiegogo page:
Canary is a single device that contains an HD video camera and multiple sensors that track everything from motion, temperature and air quality to vibration, sound, and activity to help keep you, your family and your home safe.
Canary is controlled entirely from your iPhone or Android device, and alerts you when it senses anything out of the ordinary — sudden temperature changes that could indicate a fire, sound and movements that could mean an intrusion. You can instantly receive, view and act on the alerts no matter where you are. Over time, the Canary learns your home’s rhythms to send you smarter alerts.
You can also control which sensors are turned on or off on the Canary.
When you receive an alert, you can decide how to respond. Do you want to text your neighbor to check in? Call the police? You decide.
The secure mobile app allows you to check in on your home from anywhere — down the street or around the world.
Using the Canary app, you can easily monitor and track data from many sources within your home, including temperature, air quality, humidity, and activity (video, audio & movement) in your home environment.
The Canary app and primary service are free, and accessable via as many phones as you’d like. After the products ship, there will be additional (optional) service plans that include more data options (such as storing events over a longer period of time) and a call-center backup. These premium plans will have a surcharge but are optional and contract-free. Contributing to the campaign does NOT sign you up for a paid service plan. Updates to the app are free for users as well.
If this all sounds good to you, take a moment to visit the Canary Indiegogo web page.
Below is a breakdown of the perks you can choose from when you support this campaign.
Have you seen, or even better yet do you have, a current Kickstarter or Indiegogo project you’d like us to check out? If you do then drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell me all about the project, and why you think it would make a good subject for a future Kickstarter/Indiegogo Project of the Week. If I agree, I’ll contact you for more information.
