AT&T plans to release a new portfolio of all-digital, IP-based home-security-monitoring and -automation services it’s calling AT&T Digital Life. Customers can use any Web-enabled device, including PCs, tablets and smartphones, to control the system (regardless of wireless carrier).
The devices will be wirelessly enabled to connect to the IP-based AT&T Digital Life platform inside the home. Trials in Atlanta and Dallas begin this summer.
AT&T Digital Life will include the following features and benefits:
>> 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 that 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
>> The option to experience and purchase the service in AT&T’s distribution channels, including AT&T company-owned retail stores. The service will also be made available for purchase on att.com when available commercially.
>> The ability to add more features and services after the initial installation.
The Digital Life platform includes built-in AT&T mobile internet service and will also be capable of Wi-Fi, Z-Wave and wired broadband connections. Trial subscribers can use their own wired broadband solution with the Digital Life system.
