Sound the alarms for AT&T

Marc Sanchez May 7, 2012


AT&T announced that it will add a new feature for its wireless clients: security. It’s calling the plan AT&T Digital Life, which will allow customers to take control of household tasks like remotely switching the lights on and off lights, unlocking doors, and keeping an eye on the kids.

All Things D reports: “The idea is that AT&T installs a home base unit that taps AT&T’s cellular networks and can connect via Wi-Fi and other methods to any number of devices in the house, from cameras and window sensors to locks, thermostats, appliances and motion detectors.” The systems will be tested this summer in Atlanta and Dallas.
