Jan. 23, 2013: AT&T Home Security and Automation System to be Introduced in March

DALLAS — AT&T has announced plans to commercially launch AT&T Digital Life, an all-digital, wireless-based home security and automation service, in eight markets in March. The company said AT&T Digital Life will equip customers with control of their homes from a smartphone, tablet, or PC, regardless of wireless carrier or broadband provider.

With a state-of-the-art, user-friendly application, AT&T said customers will be able to easily customize a security and automation package based on their individual needs, and will have the ability to manage and control their services by setting up programs and alerts. Through dedicated monitoring centers staffed 24/7, professionals will respond to emergencies and alert police and fire authorities, along with customers, with details on where an event inside the home occurred.

“AT&T Digital Life is a game-changing wireless centric home security and automation experience with its unique integration and an intuitive app to control every feature from your smartphone, tablet, or PC,” said Kevin Petersen, senior vice president, AT&T Digital Life. “Combined with AT&T’s wireless network and unparalleled distribution channels, Digital Life will offer exciting new innovation. We can’t wait to get it into the hands of our customers.”

The system’s wirelessly enabled devices include thermostats; smoke, carbon monoxide, motion and glass break sensors; door locks; cameras; window/door sensors; moisture detection and water shut-off; and appliance and lighting controls.

The Digital Life control panel, built by Cisco, is UL certified and will run the system.
