Digital Life Platform By At&t Focuses On Home

Home-Securtiy Householders in the Houston metro can just press a button on their phone or touch the screen of their pad to save power, keep an eye on the well-being of their families or watch their Houston home security situation. Recently, AT&T has designed a new platform with the capabilities to offer these sorts of media to home security service vendors. The new home monitoring solution from AT&T not only aims at Houston home safety, but also the entire United States and global market. In early 2012, AT&T published an IP-based distant home monitoring and automation platform, which is referred to as AT&T Digital Life, to provide Houston home automation and home security service providers and providers around the globe with the capabilities to provide their customers home security services in a custom-built and web-based method. Due to such a web-based user interface, suppliers can offer their consumers home alarm monitoring devices like wire-free detectors and cameras with wire-free .munication features. These home automation equipments can .municate with a monitoring center in one’s house. The Digital Life platform contains licensed software development kits, technical and integration support, hardware certification and application hosting. Because of the customizable experience provided by the Digital Life platform, home monitoring and security suppliers are able to develop a typical illustrative user interface and expand branding to devices. Suppliers are able to tailor the solutions for specific industry and applications, i.e. consumer, home alarm monitoring, healthcare, etc., dependent upon their own requirements and business types. Digital Life platform was primitively generated from technology from Xanboo, which was acquired by AT&T in 2010. Xanboo was founded in 1999 as one of the original cloud-based home security and automation .panies. In 2006, AT&T had offered a Xanboo-based service to its consumers in Houston and all over United States. However, this program was short-lived. Not long ago, AT&T demonstrated its Digital Life platform capabilities at the GSMA Connected House at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain from Feb 27 to Mar 1, 2012. AT&T Digital Life offers Houston and international home automation vendors with lower entry costs into a market that can potentially generate new return streams and lower churn for the vendors. Home alarm monitoring service suppliers can build their own interfaces and utilizations with a software developer’s kit (SDK). The basic kit includes home alarm monitoring cameras and security detectors. Price starts at $9.95/month. Digital Life platform is similar to Motorola Mobility’s 4 Home, the platform utilized by Verizon, AT&T’s tele. .petitor. Last year, Verizon started to provide its Home Monitoring & Control solution based upon Motorola 4 Home. Monthly fee started at $ 9.99. Kevin Peterson, senior vice president of Digital Life for AT&T Mobility, noted that focus for the new business is on worldwide markets, not the US. This means that householders in Houston cannot profit from the Digital Life platform at present. Nevertheless, other staffs at AT&T still came on strong that besides the worldwide markets outside of US, the Digital Life platform will be also available for Houston home alarm monitoring service providers and providers all around US. Regardless of the countries or areas that will be counted into the new platform, we are excited to see that home automation and security industry has got an immense ac.plishment.
