Bringing home smoke detection into the 21st century, the Canary smart smoke detector accurately analyzes the air while connecting to your smartphone. Canary is a detector that can sense smoke, carbon monoxide and air quality while sending data to a mobile device. All of this technology is hidden behind the facade of a regular smoke detector.

The Canary app connects with your detector to let you know if there is a problem and when you need to charge it. In addition, all of the data is sent to the cloud to add to an air quality database. Compiled data can show which neighborhoods have the best air quality so that you can choose to live in a cleaner part of your city.
