Canopy has launched its first product, the Canopy Pickup Cam. Canopy was created in response to the rise of tradespeople and truck owners losing tools, equipment and gear to theft on the jobsite.
The Canopy Pickup Cam is a connected security camera for pickup trucks, designed to provide real-time truck bed monitoring when the vehicle is parked and the owner is away.
“Every day, vehicle owners load their trucks with the tools that make their work possible. These vehicles are designed to transport their livelihood, yet, they offer little protection. Traditional security measures, such as lockboxes, cables, and covers add unnecessary time and effort to the work day,” said Canopy CEO Christian Moran. “The harsh reality is most people who use these products don’t find out about a theft until it’s too late. At Canopy, we saw these problems as an opportunity to redefine vehicle security. We combined the benefits found in smart home technology with our automotive and AI expertise to deliver a great connected experience for vehicle owners.”
The Pickup Cam provides customers with a complete view of the truck bed, with a 180° wide field of view, captured in HD. The camera has a dynamic LED bar that serves as an initial deterrent, signaling when the vehicle is under intelligent surveillance. Every Pickup Cam is connected to a Canopy Hub, which provides cellular connectivity and dedicated power to enable continuous monitoring.
The complete system can be self-installed in about 15 minutes.The camera works with the Canopy Security app where you can view live video and past recorded events. Users will receive a push notification whenever suspicious activity is detected. Recorded footage is stored securely on the cloud.
The app also includes an on-demand Emergency help feature that connects users with an ADT professional monitoring agent. A subscription allows Canopy to protect vehicles in various locations. The subscription also enables several connected capabilities, including 4G LTE connectivity, secure cloud storage for data, real-time alerts, ADT emergency help and access to future software updates and new feature rollouts.
