A self-contained security device controlled by Smartphone :- The Canary

 The Canary

The primary purpose of the Canary is home security, it can also be used to keep an eye on pets, children, or elderly relatives. With this in mind, there is software under development to recognize and take into account dogs and cats moving about, so they don’t trigger alerts.

Canary is a deceptively decorative cylinder about six inches (15.2 cm) tall. According to the developers, setting up the device is simply a matter of plugging it into the wall and waiting about 30 seconds. The cylinder contains a raft of sensors, such a microphone and an HD video camera with night vision and a wide-angle lens that allows it to take in an entire room without the need for a mechanical panning mount. What keeps this from being just a stylish baby monitor is that it also has a three-axis accelerometer that can detect if the unit is moved or smashed, a passive infrared motion detection system, a temperature sensor, a humidity sensor, and even an air quality sensor. In addition, there’s a speaker and even a siren.
It’s useful for those people who live in rented homes, because flat dwellers aren't generally allowed to install security systems. As an alternative to teaching the hamster to bark, the Canary aims to put a complete security system into a self-contained, plug-and-play container that can be controlled by a smartphone app.

Cloud-based system is use to control of the Canary  through a smartphone. The unit sends alerts when it detects something unusual, such as a temperature rise that could mean fire, or sound and motion that might be a break in, and it provides options of calling a neighbor or the police or setting off a siren.
When the linked phone is in the area of Canary, then the phone also acts as an ID for Canary’s geofence feature, as the system recognizes it and disarms itself. when the phone leaves, the unit arms. The Canary can be connected to multiple phones, so not only can other family members use it, but the device can identify them and send alerts when they’re home or leave.

According to the developers, the Canary has a learning capability, so it adjusts to your habits. There’s an automated mode or a manual mode to disable specified sensors for privacy. The idea is not just to make it self contained, but also to produce a smart system that reduces the chances of false alarms.

Basic service with the Canary will be free, though there will also be subscription premium services, such as data options and call center support.

 The estimated price is US$199 with shipping goal of May 2014. The campaign continues until August 26.
