Telecommunications giant AT&T is preparing to enter the home security and automation services sector with the upcoming launch of AT&T Digital Life. The company will offer a variety of Internet protocol (IP) based services and products that can be managed from anywhere in the world.

 

AT&T will begin service trials in Atlanta and Dallas later this summer. The AT&T Digital Life product lineup features a variety of IP-connected devices including:

 

  • Security cameras
  • Window and door sensors
  • Glass-break sensors
  • Door looks
  • Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Thermostats
  • Moisture detection
  • Appliance power controls
 

All of these devices can be controlled remotely, from anywhere in the world, using your smartphone, tablet, laptop or any device with Web access. The service won’t be limited to customers of AT&T wireless, either.

 

"AT&T Digital Life will change the way people live, work and play — and meets a clear need in the market,” said Kevin Petersen, senior vice president of Digital Life, AT&T Mobility.  “The service is smart, simple and customer centric — freeing homeowners to do the things they want to do without compromising on the things they need to do to care for family and home.”

 

If you’d like to sign up to receive notifications when the new home security and automation services are offered in your area, log on to the AT&T Digital Life website and fill out the short form.
