As household gadgets like deadbolts and thermostats only grow smarter and smarter, it makes sense for the security systems we use to keep those things safe and sound to progress in the same vein. And as of today, they have, thanks to the Canary -- a new smarthome security device that just managed to meet its $100K crowdfunding goal in under 12 hours.

Ideal for both homeowners and renters alike, the cylindrical, thermos-sized device is packed with a litany of sensors, a microphone, and even a nightvision camera that will monitor everything from temperature, to air quality, sound, and movement in whatever space its sitting in, sending an instant alert to your phone anytime it registers something potentially suspicious. And the best part: installation's as simple as plugging it in.
You don't need to fret about forgetting to set it, either, as it will automatically arm and disarm thanks to geofencing tech that recognizes when your phone is in and out of range. And unlike "dumb" alarm systems of the past, it's designed to adapt to its environment and adjust to the fluctuations in noise, temp, and other trends unique to your apartment over time, thus cutting down on annoying false alarms.
