home alarm security
New alarm systems not only help people keep tabs on any unusual activity at their home, but they are making everyday living more convenient. "We've also built in the home automation capabilities where now you can control your lights, control your thermostat, you can control video cameras, and view video cameras and all of those devices work together seamlessly," said
Xfinity Home Vice President Dennis Mathew. Comcast began
rolling out its wireless Xfinity Home system in 2012 and now is available in Comcast served area across the country. Ray Child has the system in his home, and said it helps him keep tabs on everything via his PC, tablet and smartphone. "I can't tell you how many times whether it's a trip across town or across the country where I've had that 'ah ha' moment where I didn't turn on my security system," Mathew said. "I can be driving down the road and say, 'I really want those lights on,' so I can remotely turn on the lights.
