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-sensored 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!
