This Canadian tech company has invented a new security system that will allow homeowners to detect intruders using only invisible wireless signals.

Cognitive Systems Corp’s Aura is a small and simple home security device that monitors motion by detecting ripples in wireless signals, avoiding the need for cameras or complicated alarm installation. The two-piece system is made up of a sensor and “the hub,” the main device that’s referred to as the brains of Aura.

The hub and sensor work as a pair in your home to catch intruders. To be most effective, the hub and sensor should be placed on opposite sides of your home, ensuring that the main area of your house (where you can access all rooms and floors) is between both units. By using the Aura app on your smartphone, you can connect the hub to your Wi-Fi network, pair the two units and then just like that, your home is protected.

Aura can be active all day, even with family members entering and leaving the home. With a smartphone, family members can be added to an Aura account. Using location services, Aura will detect when a family member is home and will know not to trigger the alarm.

No matter where you are, you can use the app to easily control when you want to arm and disarm the system. When an intruder is detected in your home, you will receive an alert on your phone, and you can choose to activate a loud alarm sound.

Aura is working out some kinks with house pets, as pets over 20 pounds will trigger the alarm.

Aura’s retail price is $499 USD.
