You don't have to invest in a complicated smart home security system to keep your house safe - Toucan can give you all the bells and whistles in one fell swoop.

When it comes to smart home security, there’s a lot of choice – almost too much, in fact. If you’re considering home surveillance options but you’re overwhelmed by the sheer range of gadgets, gizmos and systems on the market, you might be relieved to hear that there’s a single solution that could put and end to your woes.

By connecting to your existing outdoor or porch light, Toucan gives you an instant camera, motion detector, siren, and two-way remote chat for easy breezy smart home surveillance. With Toucan installed, you can watch a live-stream of your camera’s footage from your phone, chat to guests on your doorstep, get alerts when there’s trouble afoot, sound the siren, and create smart lighting schedules to keep an eye on your home 24/7.

One of the most appealing things about Toucan is that it’s super-easy to install. Just screw in Toucan’s smart socket into your light, connect the Toucan device via USB, and secure it in place for the optimal view of its surroundings. It connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth to give you full control of its features from its companion app, and uses your existing WiFi connection to stream video and snapshots. The camera unit itself is sturdy and weather resistant, trooping on through showers and snow to make sure you never miss a moment.

Like other smart home security systems that give unlimited surveillance, Toucan offers various packages depending on how flexible you need it to be. On the basic free subscription package, you’ll get all of Toucan’s great features, with access for all of your home’s footage for up to two hours after it was filmed. If you want unlimited access to all of Toucan’s footage you can opt for a paid subscription plan instead

If you’re ready to take the plunge into smart home burglary prevention but you’re feeling stifled by the noise from other brands and gadgets, Toucan is a simple quick-fix to get the level of security you’re after. The even better news is that you can pre-order it for the discounted price of just $149 (£103) if you get in there before May 8th. After that, it will shoot up to its full price of $199 (£138).
