Here in part two of our recap of CES 2016, we wanted to show you some of the cool devices for your home that help with security and safety. First up, the Canary all-in-one complete security system. This gadget can help you achieve peace of mind each time you leave your home! This pint-sized cylinder touts a 1080p HD camera that can record high quality video and it also records great audio so you can monitor your home from anywhere using your mobile device. Its 147° angled lens can cover a substantial portion of your home when placed in a room that is centrally located. It senses motion and notifies you on your device if an activity in your home is “unusual”, depending on your personal settings. If you happen to look in at a live shot and noticed something or someone suspicious, you can sound a blaring 90+ decibel siren that’s sure to scare away any unwanted guests. What’s even cooler about this gizmo is that it also has features like night vision for recording in the evening, 30 day cloud storage for your videos and it has an air quality sensor. It currently retails for about $199 (monthly subscription fees not included).
Another noteworthy item from CES 2016 was the Ring Video Doorbell. Ring debuted at CES in 2011 but has since taken off! It’s widely popular because it helps guard against home burglary and package theft. Once someone rings your doorbell, you are notified on your smart phone or device and can actually see and speak with that person. Other key features include an impressive motion sensor, video cloud recording, the capability to be paired with other Ring accessories like their mounted Stick-Up Cam and indoor chime for a traditional doorbell alert and Ring can be synced with other smart lock products you may have installed. Ring retails for about $199.
We’re revisiting appliances with this last item. This year at CES Whirlpool debuted a whole host of award winning, innovative smart home tech, especially for the kitchen. Their new Smart Front Control Range, like with their other new machines, is compatible with Nest Thermostats. Why? Let’s say you mistakenly leave your stove top or oven on when you leave the house for the day, the Nest Thermostat can detect that and help keep your home safe by sending you an alert on your smart phone. This range will be available in gas or electric as soon as it becomes available for purchase sometime in 2016. It retails for $2,000.
