Product Introduction: Home security is provided on a single device with Indiegogo-funded Canary
By Canary 2015-01-08
Launched on Indiegogo in 2013, Canary captured international attention and became the most successful connected home crowdfunded product ever. Within its first month of pre-sale, Canary sold $2 million in 78 countries, and over the past year, has kicked off mass production. With exceptional hardware, software, and user experience, Canary is positioned to become the leader in the smart home security space.
What drove Canary to reinvent home security? The belief that everyone deserves to have a safe home. However, traditional security solutions involve complicated installations and long-term contracts, and have left most people—especially renters—with little to no option for security.
Canary is a complete home security system packed into a single device—a modern approach to security that lets you protect the people and places you care about most. It’s built to learn and adapts to your patterns over time; whenever Canary detects something out of the ordinary in your house or apartment, it sends intelligent notifications with HD video and audio directly to your smartphone. That way, you can make smart decisions when something’s wrong and feel connected when everything’s right.
Canary is designed for everyone—renters and homeowners alike. Whether you’re setting up one Canary in a studio apartment, or three or four throughout a larger home, Canary is adaptable to your needs. It can be used to watch over your kids, your pets, and your belongings, or just to let you know that everything's safe when you’re away for the weekend.
Canary absorbs and analyzes the perfect combination of data from your home using a 1080p wide-angle HD camera, a high-quality microphone, HomeHealth Technology™, and more. This information is filtered through robust learning algorithms to create a detailed picture of your home, and is strengthened by user interaction; your feedback teaches Canary which events are part of your normal routine, and which ones really need your attention.
When something out of the ordinary happens, including unexpected visitors, sudden changes in temperature, or unusual activity, Canary sends real-time notifications to your smartphone with HD video of the event. From there, Canary gives you the option to ignore the event, sound the siren, or call the local authorities, empowering you to make informed decisions and choose the right response.
