AT&T is hoping to share the convenience of home automation with more of its customers very soon. The company just announced plans to offer AT&T Digital Life in 15 markets across the U.S.
AT&T Digital Life includes a 24/7 monitoring service, which will alert the homeowner, as well as police and fire departments, in case of an emergency. Users can choose between options such as window sensors, glass break detectors, carbon monoxide sensors, and more.
Other features include management and control of security and automation devices, using programs and alerts. The all-digital, wireless Digital Life platform also works with thermostats, wirelessly-controlled door locks, video cameras, and more.
“We’ve been building AT&T Digital Life with the intent to establish a strong position in an industry ripe with potential to connect customers to their homes in a game-changing, wireless-centric experience,” said Kevin Petersen, senior vice president of AT&T Digital Life. “We did extensive research, listened to our customers and worked hard to build a solution with an unmatched set of assets. We are excited for our customers to begin experiencing Digital Life and all the benefits it offers.”
Currently, AT&T is offering these home security and automation services in eight markets. The new additions will be coming this spring. If all goes well, AT&T plans to have those services in 50 markets by the end of the year. Potential customers can purchase services inside an AT&T store, through a call center representative, on the web, or by scheduling an appointment with an in-home sales consultant.
