Fast Company has a post on the Canary intelligent home security system. But, my first thought is this would be great in a data center, colocation, or server closet. The biggest problem would be it threatens the silos of security, facilities, and IT operations teams in their specialized systems.
I know one of you out there will take the leap and order one of these for your server area.
BTW, I have a home video recording system and it is so much better than a typical security system approach.
The hardware has these features.
The software has these features.
