Canopy Pickup Cam created by joint Ford-ADT venture

Techstination feature for Wednesday, August 16, 2023

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        Canopy, a venture created jointly by Ford and ADT, is tackling the issue of pickup truck bed security with the new Canopy Pickup Cam.  The devices…arriving soon in September…are designed to work with any type of pickup truck..not just Ford models…and are a self install solution.   Chief Product Officer Sam Harris..

“The sensing unit is using a combination of radar, accelerometers, cameras.  When we see something that we think is suspicious, someone loitering around the truck someone reaching into the truck bed, within half a second we actually wake up the camera, take an image.”

And start the rapid verification and notification process.    There are deals now at but the regular pricing will be about three hundred dollars for the system with service priced at about 15 dollars a month.
