Canary, a “digital house sitter” of sorts, is a home security device designed to give you peace-of-mind and relevant information when you aren’t there. The nicely-designed cylinder is packed with a camera, microphone, motion detection, and many other sensors to alert you (via your mobile device) when something is out of the ordinary.

When you leave your home, you can simply arm Canary with your smartphone, which can then be disarmed through geofencing when you return. This product certainly seems like an all-in-one solution to home monitoring, and is the perfect addition for those looking to make their homes safer, smarter, and more efficient.

The startup’s team looks promising, with the co-founders having extensive security, defense, and design backgrounds. As of this writing, Canary has already raised nearly $750k of its $100k goal on Indiegogo, so it’s safe to say that this project will be a success. It is expected to go on sale in May 2014 for around $200.
