AT&T introduces its home management system
The wireless-based DL is customizable via smartphones, tablets, or PCs with apps available for iOS, Andriod smartphones, and windows phones. It is compatible with majority of web browsers and can also be used with any broadband provider. For security purposes, customers log in each time the app is opened from an internet-connected device.
“We know how important security is to our customers,” said Kevin Petersen, senior vice president, AT&T Digital Life. “People rely on their mobile devices more than ever, so Digital Life offers an easy and convenient way to secure their homes, protect their families and simplify their lives from virtually anywhere.”
Customers can control their cameras, doors, locks, lights, thermostats etc. from their phone by setting alerts or programs to manage the home. Standing by and monitoring the home are professionals who respond to alerts as well as notify the emergency and police authorities.
“We’re bringing you security and convenience features that can be easily integrated into your life, making things simpler for you and your family,” said Petersen.
Launch markets include Atlanta, Ga., Chicago, Il., Miami, Fla., Los Angeles, Calif., Denver, Colo., San Francisco, Calif., and New York City, N.Y. among others.
