About Canary:

There’s a lot of “smart home” companies out there trying to “connect” things - dishwashers, lights, fridges, TVs, crockpots, etc. At Canary we prefer to solve problems.

We started with home security because it’s a need shared by hundreds of millions of people around the globe. We know because we’ve already sold Canary in 78 countries, and proved through our Indiegogo campaign (the most successful ever) that there’s a real demand for affordable intelligent home security that just works. Rather than being all about preventing the bad (including fires and floods), Canary also helps out in other ways whether it’s letting users watch their kids play during the middle of the day or providing a digital neighborhood watch while they’re on vacation.

Our goal is to make a security device that people want to interact with on a daily basis. We're looking for awesome people who love toppling giants, working autonomously in small teams, solving challenging problems, and developing solutions for actual people.
