Meet the Canary: a smart home security system that combines a camera, microphone, and a bunch of sensors to help you see and hear what happens in your home. For starters, it has a 1080p HD camera with a 147 degree wide-angle lens and night vision. You also get a 90+ dB siren, motion-activated recording, auto-arm/disarm, and air quality monitoring. The device can monitor temperature and humidity as well.
The Canary is easy to install and does not require you to pay any monthly fees to use it. Just plug it in, connect it to the Internet, and you are ready to monitor your home. Cloud storage is also provided. The companion app lets you keep an eye on your kids or pets, receive video notifications, and respond to incidents. Canary’s system can monitor multiple locations, which is a plus. It sets you back under $249.
