Hundreds of police officers and firefighters in Chula Vista received free state-of-the-art Canary home security cameras Tuesday as part of a donation.
In honor of National Night Out 2017, which promotes safer neighborhoods, State Farm donated 473 cameras to the Chula Vista Police Department.
The cameras can be controlled remotely using an app on a cell phone.
The Canary device can not only monitor movement but also detect and alert the user about changes in temperature, humidity and air quality in the home.
Over 15,000 communities across the United States, as well as cities in Canada and military bases worldwide participate in National Night Out annually. It was started in 1984.
