Birdi (formerly known as Canary) is a smart device that monitors air quality in homes, tracking dust, soot and other health dangers. It also warns homeowners about emergencies such as fire and carbon monoxide levels. 

The device sends alerts and warnings via an app and users can see the information or silence alarms straight from their phones. In case of a real emergency, the app makes sure that homeowners get the help they need by patching them through to the relevant authorities. 

Birdi can also see when batteries are low and sends replacements out to users a few months in advance. The app also shows techniques to minimise dangers.
