A new startup called Canary is about to launch a home security device that will put you in control.
Canary contains an HD video camera and multiple sensors that can track everything from motion, temperature and humidity to vibration, sound, and activity.
Features are customizable and, most importantly, everything is controlled by you only, from your smartphone. Canary alerts you when it senses anything out of the ordinary — from sudden temperature changes (fire), to movement (intrusion).

Perks are available for contributors at Indiegogo.
For $5 you can support the endeavour, for $199 you will be an early adopter of a package that includes device + mobile app and from there go fancy!
