iDevices are passe, AT&T's trying to create iHomes
This entry was posted on Saturday, May 5, 2012.
According to AT&T's website for Digital Life:
A state-of-the-art remote monitoring and automation platform for service providers outside the U.S.
One of the key features of Digital Life is the ability to detect water leaks, and turning off your water supply if need be. Moreover, Digital Life is simply maintained and installed by AT&T - you don't need to be a customer of Ma Bell already to make the most of this potentially powerful suite of home services.
There's no reason not to believe that Digital Life won't be a successful venture for AT&T. Customers want their lives to be made easier, and making the use of more and more automation reduces spots of bother such as a water leak, while you're meant to have some 'you' time, or are away on a vacation with your family. In case the trials work out well, who knows how ubiquitous this may turn out to be in the future.
