A few weeks ago we highlighted a home-monitoring security system called Canary. Canary helps you keep track of your home by monitoring a number of variables, including air quality, vibration, temperature, sound, and movement. When something is awry, it will send a detailed alert to your smartphone.

The system also comes with an HD camera with night-vision functionality which allows users to monitor live feeds of their home if they so choose.

Now comes word via MacRumors that Canary has eclipsed the US$100,000 mark it initially sought to generate via Indiegogo. Impressively, Canary recently surpassed the $1.25 million threshold, with MacRumors noting that “the project is on track to become the most successful crowd-funded home product ever.”

If all goes according to plan, Canary will begin shipping in May of 2014 and will retail for $199.

Below, check out a video of Canary in action.
