Canary all in one home security gadget

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, September 24, 2015

An all in one home security gadget called Canary.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   When you think of home security systems, you typically think of sensors on doors and windows that involve quite a bit of time and effort to set up…and most likely  a subscription for home monitoring.   Canary is designed to do away with the set up hassles.   It’s a cylinder that connects to your home network….and keeps watch….alerting you when something is amiss and letting you decide whether to call in an alarm.  Communications Head John Carter…

“In addition to a 147 degree wide angle, HD 1080p camera, it’s also an HD audio microphone in there as well as an air quality VOC sensor, a sensor for temperature, a sensor for humidity.”

It works with Android and iOS smartphones and will store video in the cloud for free for 12 hours.   If you want clips stored for longer than that Canary sells plans for as little as five dollars a month.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
