I am particularly impressed with its IP-based wireless platform, plans for a nationwide offering, and a wide range of devices that can be monitored and viewed from any carrier’s wireless or wireline Internet connection. These consumer-friendly capabilities will help grow this industry.”
AT&T Digital Life will have connected devices and sensors like cameras, window/door sensors, smoke sensor, carbon monoxide sensor, motion sensor, glass break sensor, automated door locks, connected thermostats, moisture detection and appliance power controls. The main features and benefits of the new service according to AT&T are:
Professional installation of the platform, sensors and other devices
Integrated, wirelessly enabled platform that combines home security and automation capabilities
AT&T owned and operated 24/7 security monitoring centers
A state-of-the-art user interface application, which allows customers to customize a solution based on individual needs, and the ability to manage and control their services from the U.S. or while traveling abroad
AT&T will begin trial run of the Digital Life services in Atlanta and Dallas this summer and will require subscription of AT&T’s wireless home service for it to work.
