I always thought apartment living was pretty safe. I lived in a gated community that was away from the city and in a really quiet neighborhood. Then I got a notice that someone had been climbing the fence and breaking down doors to steal jewelry. Yikes! I grew up in a rural area, so home safety was something I never worried about. But city life is different and it’s good to be prepared.
The Canary Indoor Wireless High-Definition All-In-One Home Security device helps keep your home safe and sound with motion detection notifications, a 90+ dB siren and HomeHealth Technology. It learns the cadence of your home so it can send you accurate notifications with fewer false alarms triggered by pets or other regular activity in your house.
Security systems always seemed so complex to me, but I was able to set this up all by myself. It’s really simple. Just place the Canary in a central location, plug it in and connect to your Wi-Fi. The free mobile app let you see what’s happening via a live streaming video from anywhere with your iPhone® or Android smartphone. You can even see in the dark with infrared night vision!
The app installation is simple and secure. When I searched “Canary,” it was the first app in results.
You need to create a password, setup your geographical location (it automatically detects your address if you GPS is on), and answer a few questions about your home.
Canary’s HomeHealth feature lets you know if the temperature and air quality of the home is safe and comfortable – you can monitor the air quality, temperature and humidity in your home from almost anywhere.
In order to facilitate my new home security system, I used the Netgear® Nighthawk™ DST Router and DST Adapter, found exclusively at Best Buy.
This high-performance router was built to support 10+ connected devices – you can also prioritize devices for streaming videos or music, and included advanced features for lag-free gaming.
I consider myself pretty tech savvy, but even I get confused sometimes.The Geek Squad support included was very helpful when I came across a speed bump in my set up.
I highly suggest these products for your home security. The Canary Indoor Wireless High-Definition All-In-One Home Security System retails for $249.99.
