Canary Redefines Security -- Again

Smart Home Platform Now a Daily Habit in 15 Countries Announces World's Most Versatile Security Device -- Canary Flex Goes Where Wi-Fi Can't With New 4G LTE Accessory From Verizon Wireless; Introduces Membership, Service Beyond Cloud Storage

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 20, 2016) - Canary today announced several new products, led by Canary Flex™, the first and only indoor and outdoor, HD security camera that can be used wire-free or plugged in. Designed to be breathtakingly beautiful, inside and out, Canary Flex effortlessly adapts to any environment and is built to withstand the toughest elements.

Whether monitoring the nursery, backyard, garage, or basement, Canary Flex captures motion with vivid HD clarity, day or night, and sends intelligent notifications when unfamiliar activity occurs. An extended-life rechargeable battery provides months of wire-free use, and a weatherproof magnetic plug offers power from any outlet. Canary Flex stands upright or mounts easily and inconspicuously on a wall, and its innovative 360° magnetic swivel base enables effortless camera articulation and precise point-of-view positioning. Built to stand alone or complement multiple Canary devices, Canary Flex connects to Wi-Fi and streams live or recorded audio and video to your phone and integrates with the existing Canary app experience, no extra hardware or hubs required. Available in Snow White or Space Black, Canary Flex is simply the most advanced and adaptable security solution ever designed, with elegant symmetry and powerful technology packed into one discreet device.

"At Canary, we believe that the relationship between a person, their home, and the ones they love is a beautiful thing, and that it can be protected and enhanced by the tools we build," said Adam Sager, co-founder and CEO of Canary. "With Canary Flex, we created the most stunning, truly useful product in the Internet of Things, which will bring people into a new relationship with their homes and families and meaningfully improve their lives."

Accessories
Canary Flex is launching together with a range of thoughtfully-curated accessories that extend how and where you can use the device. From an outdoor mount that allows secure camera positioning to more playful solutions that are right at home in the kids' room, these accessories are designed with the same refinement and artistry as Canary Flex itself. New accessories include:

  • Secure Mount: Secure Mount attaches to any wall or surface, inside or out, keeping your Canary Flex locked-in wherever you place it. A ball joint makes it simple to adjust the camera angle so you can always find the right view.
  • Stake Mount: Designed to blend in, Stake Mount is perfect for back gardens or planters. Canary Flex easily snaps in place on the mount's magnetic base. Stake Mount likes sun, rain and there's no need to bring it inside during the winter.
  • Twist Mount: Twist Mount takes Canary Flex to unexpected places. Cabinets. Railings. Tree Limbs. Let your imagination run wild. Wherever you can hang it or wrap it, Twist Mount creates smart vantage points for your Canary Flex.

4G LTE Mount for Canary Flex
The 4G LTE Mount for Canary Flex, connected by Verizon, and co-developed by Canary and Verizon, breaks the boundaries of where home security can go. Verizon's 4G LTE covers over 2.4 million square miles, so whether it's monitoring the creatures that lurk deep in your backyard, your boat at the marina, or guests arriving at the entrance of an extended driveway, the possibilities are far and wide. The weatherproof 4G LTE Mount cradles Canary Flex within a custom-designed, easily-mounted housing to provide full range of motion, allowing the camera to be easily maneuvered and positioned. Like Canary Flex, the 4G LTE Mount can be plugged in or used untethered and wire-free. Pricing and availability for the 4G LTE Mount for Canary Flex will be announced at a later date.

Membership
In the same way Canary has leveraged stunning hardware and sophisticated software to redefine the industry, Canary is bringing true innovation to service plans. Moving away from industry conventions that are defined by storage and data limits, Canary is unveiling security as a service, focusing on providing its users with total peace of mind. With a new subscription program called Membership, Canary introduces a game-changing approach to protecting your home and family. Members will have access to the last 30 days of recorded video history, unlimited storage, and unlimited video downloads plus exclusive services and unprecedented benefits that deliver added security and tangible value including:

  • Deductible Reimbursement: Canary will reimburse up to $1,000 of a homeowners or renters insurance deductible for qualifying incidents.
  • Incident Support: Canary will provide Members with a dedicated agent to help retrieve video evidence and assist through a home theft event.
  • Extended Warranty: Canary will extend the length of its warranty to two years from its original date of purchase.

Membership will launch in October at $9.99/month for one device, and $14.99 for 2-3 devices. You can connect four devices for $19.99/month, and any devices beyond that for $4.99 per device. Canary will still offer a free everyday service to all customers, which increases from 12 hours of available recorded video history to a 24-hour total timeline for up to four devices. The free plan will also allow all customers to share, save, and download unlimited videos with no data caps or restrictions.
