Canary, the complete home security system, is about to go on sale in the States at a RRP of $250. The Canary received a great deal of attention when the company exceeded its funding goal of $100,000 on Indiegogo, back in July 2013. The Canary attracted an impressive two million dollars' worth of pre-orders, and also closed an additional $10 million round of funding led by Khosla Ventures.
The good news is that early beta testers, who were among the first to pre-order the Canary, have been working with the makers to iron out bugs prior to the full commercial release, which according to the website, is Feb 2015.
Like similar home monitoring devices such as Branto, Rico, Mother, Cocoon, Kuna, Point, iSmartAlarm, and Piper the Canary contains motion, air and smoke sensors, as well as a camera. What sets it apart from the aforementioned competitors is that its software claims to be able to sense the difference between pets, children and intruders. The Canary records a clip each time motion is detected and sends a notification to the app.
