Canary

Smart home security for everyone

Kate- Community @Tierion
I LOVE my Canary. I constantly am trying to find new ways to make my little city apartment "smarter" and safer, and Canary totally nailed it. Their app is seamless and while there may not be a really obvious "panic" button, it's really easy to make the Canary sound an alarm (which is deafening...

As weird as it may seem to see a "home security" product as a recommendation for general air quality, it's actually one of the main reasons I originally bought my Canary. They have awesome little graphs that show you general air pollutant/irritant levels and temperature levels in your home, hour by hour. It's so rad. In addition to having these awesome air d… See more

Canary does a kickass job at home security (high quality camera with night mode, motion detection, user profiles, etc) but really goes above and beyond with the tiny features.

I've had one for a couple of years now, and while the auto-unlock function doesn't always work (maybe successful 60-70% of the time), the auto-lock function makes it easy to leave the house in a jiffy!

My friend has one of these and I used it to stay at his place while I was visiting, and I was able to get into his place while he was at work. Super clever, especially for people who are hosts on Airbnb and other similar services!

Whistle is pretty great for exactly this purpose and doubles as an activity tracker. Uses GPS, Cell, and Wi-fi to track as accurately as possible.

Usually the expression "you don't know what you don't know" is a warning. It's meant to keep people, often entrepreneurs, from rushing after an idea, and, in so doing, biting off more than they can chew. Admittedly, Christina Mercando d'Avignon, founder ofRingly , did not know initially how to build smart hardware or beautiful jewelry.
