This week we’re talking shop with Jon Troutman and James Krause–AKA the guys behind the design of the Indiegogo sensation, Canary! The Canary is a multi-sensor, home monitoring device that aims to replace existing home security systems. We’ll talk to Jon and James about the ins and outs of developing a smart home product, why they chose Indiegogo over Kickstarter, what their design process is like and how does it feel to have raised over a million dollars through crowdfunding?

We’ll be discussing:

  • Who are you Jon Troutman and James Krause?
  • What is the Canary and who is it for?
  • How did you set out to design hardware and an accompanying app?
  • How did you celebrate your crowdfunding goal?
  • …and more!
