System Canary stands out from a number of their own kind, especially the fact that it can truly be called "smart" - responds to it not only on all sorts of events, such as opening / closing doors, but also for unusual signals such as an unusual time of opening the doors to apartment.

Design and Configuration h4>
 The system looks very simple, but inside - all sorts of components, subsystems and components:

  • HD camera (720p) with a mode of night vision and 170 degree wide-angle lens;
  • Wi-Fi module;
  • A microphone and a speaker of high quality;
  • The siren;
  • LED RGB;
  • 3- axis accelerometer;
  • The motion sensor (PIR);
  • The temperature sensor ;
  • The humidity sensor;
  • The air quality sensor.

    According to the developers, one block Canary quite enough for reliable monitoring of the apartment. But it is possible to install several units, if the apartment is big, or you live in the house.

    The functionality and capabilities h4>
     This device is mounted either on the wall / ceiling or mounted on any horizontal surface. Of course, it is better to place the device anywhere in the center, not on the balcony / basement :)
