June 15, 2012: AT&T to Launch New Wireless Home Automation Services

June 15, 2012
DALLAS — AT&T has announced plans for a new portfolio of all-digital, IP-based home automation and security monitoring services. Called AT&T Digital Life™, the services will enable users to do such things as change the temperature setting on their thermostat or lock a door from anywhere using any web-enabled device — PCs, tablets, and smartphones — regardless of wireless carrier.

AT&T plans to begin trials in Atlanta and Dallas this summer.

Managed by a newly created Digital Life group, the remote monitoring and automation portfolio will feature web-based access to automation, energy, and water controls, as well as professionally monitored security services.

AT&T Digital Life will feature a lineup of connected devices including:

• Thermostats

• Smoke, carbon monoxide, motion, and glass break sensors

• Window/door sensors

• Cameras

• Door locks

• Moisture detection

• Appliance power controls

The devices will be wirelessly enabled to connect to the IP-based AT&T Digital Life platform inside the home.

“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, Digital Life, AT&T Mobility.

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 and can access the service and remotely control the products from smartphones, tablets, and PCs, regardless of carrier.
