There's also an Alexa integration in the works. It will be available on all Canary devices and will work with the Echo Spot, Echo Show and compatible Fire TVs. To bring up a particular live video from one of your Canary devices, just say something like, "Alexa, show me the front door," and those Alexa-enabled devices will show you what your Canary device is streaming.

Lastly, Canary is adding a less expensive product to its lineup. While Canary Flex costs $199 and Canary All-in-One comes in at $169, Canary View is priced at just $99. Like its counterparts, Canary View includes intelligent alerts, one-touch access to local authorities, automatic arming and disarming as well as end-to-end encryption. However, there are some features that are not included in Canary View such as HomeHealth Technology, a loud siren and outdoor monitoring. The lower price point means fewer functions, but it also means more people may try out Canary's system or expand one they have already begun to set up.
