Internet-of-Things technology vendors want to take over your home, car, person—you name it. And the trend will continue to pervade further into our lives as portable tech becomes ever more sophisticated. At WWDC 2016, Apple announced expanded integration with smart-home product vendors, one of which is a monitoring product called Canary ($179). I just happened to be reviewing their current 1st generation product when the announcement was released. HomeKit (and newly minted products that leverage it, like the Canary Plus to be released later this year) teases with an Apple-centric vision of smart appliances, apps and online monitoring services to come. The current Canary offers a slice of that vision.
