Surgeons operating
The Problem

Nosocomial infections.

1 in 25 American patients gets a healthcare-acquired infection.

Pathogen sample
The Problem

Multidrug-resistant pathogens.

Up to 700,000 people die each year from infection with antibiotic-resistant pathogens. A large proportion of these infections occur in medical facilities.

The Problem

Direct observation is problematic.

Even though it costs more, direct observation can change the behaviour it is trying to record.

  • It is costly.
  • Observation is not 24/7.
  • Behaviours do not stick.

Smart systems bring increased sanitizer use and better patient outcomes.

Do you have questions?

  • Is there a minimum number of dispensers you need to use Kanary?

    No, Kanary can be used with a single dispenser or washroom or with multiple buildings across continents.

  • How do you set up dispensers to connect to Kanary?

    The simplest way is to download our NFC setup app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. By holding your phone close to the dispensers built-in NFC chip, you can easily connect the dispensers to your preferred WiFi network and Kanary account.

  • How much does Kanary cost?

    Kanary offers a full suite of features with lower upfront and lower ongoing costs than most of our competitors. Please contact our smart team.

  • Is there a way to retrofit our existing OPHARDT dispensers to work with Kanary?

    For our SanTRAL® Plus line, yes. Simply purchase the Smart Retrofit Kit, and easily install it (it takes almost no time to install this kit). After this, you can use the NFC install app to set up your device and connect it to Kanary.

  • Is Kanary tailored for healthcare or facility management?

    While Kanary began its life as a healthcare solution, we saw the need to incorporate facility management tools. We are proud to offer a complete solution for both needs.
