Digital Life is centered on a home security with around-the-clock monitoring from AT&T facilities.

The Smart Security tier adds a choice of three of the following features: motion sensor, carbon monoxide sensor, glass break sensor, smoke sensor or takeover kit. Smart Security begins at $39.99 a month plus $249.99 for equipment.
