CableFAX Daily executive editor Michael Grebb meets Louis Stilp, founder, president and CEO of InGrid, Inc., a digital home security firm that’s targeting cable operators and other broadband service providers.

The pitch? Analog security systems share drawbacks that shouldn’t apply in the digital age. So InGrid wants to show cable operators how broadband-enabled security can improve flexibility, reliability and functionality for consumers seeking home security solutions. And of course, home security adds yet another service to MSOs’ burgeoning bundle.

No deals quite yet, but Stilp tells Grebb that the company is confident that MSOs and other broadband providers will come around. One enticement: InGrid would handle all the background technology (similar to how Research In Motion takes care of network tasks for big wireless providers offering the Blackberry device), allowing MSOs to concentrate on marketing and customer satisfaction.
