Have you ever gotten up in the middle of the night because your smoke detector was screeching? We’re here to solve that. Alerts are sent right to your phone where you are explained the situation. Maybe the battery is low, or maybe it’s an emergency. We let you know through the Canary webapp, which is connected directly to our Arduino device prototype.

Imagine renting an apartment or buying a home and knowing the air quality of the place first. We’ve developed a brand-new data set for New York City to let us do exactly that. It’s available through a RESTful web API that is well-documented and publicly available. With devices all over the city, we’ll be able to start monitoring how air is impacting our daily lives. And with an API, any developer can add to it. But we’ve also gathered open city data to track outdoor air quality. Thanks to data sets from AirNow, DEC, Health, and others for providing the data.
It’s estimated that 6% of deaths in the city are due to poor air quality. This is unacceptable. It’s our goal to push the dial on cleaner air with tangible, actionable information. Whether you’re asthmatic, sensitive to pollen, or in an acutely risky area, we’re here to make sure that you can breathe a little easier. And we’re partnering with the city and major companies to do so. Stay tuned to learn more.
