Canary Brings True Home Security to More People Faster Than Any Other Company

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jul 23, 2015) -  Canary today announced that only three months since debuting on retail shelves their all-in-one security device is now being used daily in 117 countries, representing the fastest expansion of a home security product across the world. The Canary mobile app has been used in 185 countries -- every country in the world except for 10, all within a few months.

Canary also announced that users have recorded over 100 million events and have used the Canary app to save more than 35,000 videos that they've identified as significant. Nearly 50 burglaries, home invasions, and other emergency situations have been captured by Canary, resulting in multiple arrests. Footage from these incidents is being used to identify criminals and aid law enforcement officials in ongoing investigations both in the US and internationally.

"Canary is bringing home security to people faster than any other company," said Adam Sager, Canary's cofounder and CEO. "It's already making a significant impact in communities all over the world. Over the past few months our customers have used Canary to capture dozens of serious incidents -- burglaries as well as cases of elder abuse, employee theft, and even arson. Canary empowers people during these incidents, enabling them to sound the siren on the device and connect with their local police or fire departments directly through the app, resulting in faster response times and more arrests."

As a true home security solution, Canary enables its customers to receive discounts on their renters and homeowners insurance policies. Canary is the only company offering an all-in-one consumer security device that has partnered with an insurance provider in this way.

Expansion of Services

Canary also announced the launch of its new Premium Plans which offer more options and flexibility for customers. The new Canary platform is the only consumer device that has made a commitment to its customers to provide enough data so they can do real security from their homes for no added cost. Canary's optional monthly plans are also the most user-friendly on the market, starting at only $4.99 a month. For Canary customers with eligible homeowners or renters insurance, these service plans can pay for themselves in a matter of months.

Plans will become available to Canary users the week of August 17th. As a special promotion to early customers, when the Plans launch there will be an opportunity for users to receive 50% off of any annual plan. Full details of the plans can be found at http://canary.is/plans/
