Another cable service provider has launched a remote home monitoring service. This time it’s Comcast, extending its Xfinity product into the home security realm.
For as low as $39.95 a month, Comcast customers can subscribe to the Xfinity Home Preferred Package, which will enable 24/7 professional monitoring as well as the ability to remotely adjust digital thermostats, turn lights on and off and watch live stream video from wireless cameras when away.
Comcast also has an Xfinity Home app, which is free and available on Apple’s iTunes App Store.
Xfnity Home customers can also create personalized settings to have emails or text alerts sent with doors open or close or motion detectors report activity inside or outside the home.
Sounds like pretty standard fare for this kind of service, but its still nice to see one of the bigger providers offering it. Would you subscribe to Comcast’s new service?
