Xfinity Home surfaces in Arizona, Virginia
Albuquerque and Santa Fe in Arizona, Washington, D.C., and Virginia, are the latest markets in which Comcast has activated its Xfinity Home services.
Xfinity Home is the MSO’s set of home security, monitoring and control services. It includes traditional home security features, such as police and fire alarm protection, as well as the ability to remotely adjust digital thermostats, turn lights on or off, and watch secure live streaming video from wireless cameras while away from home.
The service also comes with the Xfinity Home app, which is available for free on Apple's iTunes App Store and Google Play for Android.
Comcast is selling the Xfinity Home Preferred Package for as low as $39.95 per month. Xfinity Home customers will also be eligible to receive up to a 20 percent discount on their homeowners' insurance.
The service was first unveiled in Houston in mid-2010 with the name Xfinity Home Security and is continuing to roll out into various markets in the U.S.
