Shiny Gadget of the Month – Canary All-in-One Security Solution

By November 12, 2018July 9th, 2019Blog

It is probably safe to say that most people would feel better about having a security system in place in their home. However, that does not mean that most people actually have security systems. People can be off-put by the cost and complexity of getting a professional home security and monitoring system installed, but this does not have to be the case. For a smaller home the Canary All-in-One provides total home security and intelligence with a 1080p HD camera, 90 decibel siren, plus a built-in climate monitor for a small price.

The Canary comes loaded with features. It has two-way talk to communicate with family at home, or maybe just to keep your pets off the furniture, an alarm that you can sound to thwart intruders, live and recorded video, air quality monitor to tell you temperature, humidity, and understand how it can affect your health, and access to pre-populated numbers for first responders. It even works with Alexa for voice control… all this in a compact little gadget.

You can set up one, or multiple, devices to monitor your home. The wide angle lens will monitor things and if motion is detected it will send you an alert to your smartphone. From there you can view the motion and determine if you should set off the alarm and contact the authorities or not. The motion detection uses AI technology so that it can recognize your pets from an intruder so you are not inundated with alerts, but can still keep an eye on your furry friends. It also uses this technology to know if you’re around and auto-arming if you are not, as well. It also comes with a privacy mode to shut down the camera and microphone at any time so you can still have privacy in your own home while you are there. Canary even comes with insurance benefits. Companies like State Farm, Liberty Mutual, and Allstate offer benefits for having a Canary device.

All these features packed into a tiny device. The Canary All-in-One is listed on their website for $169 with discounts for using their premium membership. To see more about what this nifty little gadget can do check out their website for more information .
