Canaries protecting your home

Canary Security

Canary Security

Home security has taken on a whole new life in the past three years. Used to be that most people bought service from one of the standard alarm companies. The techs would buy their own home security monitoring system and install it.  The difference between who monitors the system. If you’re away and want the police/fire automatically alerted to an issue, the standard alarm companies are still your best choice. But if you want to monitor what’s going on day to day in the home, then something like the Canary is an excellent option. Now, this particular piece of hardware has not yet been evaluated by me, so that is why I said something like this device. You’re also able to combine several of these devices to cover your home or even add one at the office, all controlled from the same smartphone or tablet. You can also give multiple users access to your Canary.

This particular device purports to be simple to setup and install, available via smartphone or tablet and able to provide you with a wide variety of data on the spot. If used in conjunction with a standard alarm service that does contact authorities, you’d be able to provide them with video, audio and environmental information to help catch and prosecute those who broke in, or maybe how a fire started, etc. I’ve requested a unit to evaluate and fully review, so we’ll see if one is made available.
