Comcast extending access to home automation services



Comcast has announced plans to significantly expand its home automation capabilities across its entire Xfinity services product portfolio, which includes X1 (TV and voice remote), xFi (WiFi), Xfinity Home (home security), and Xfinity Mobile, the company said.

The move will enable Comcast to put access to smart home controls into the hands of more than 15 million Xfinity customers at no additional cost. It also will make the adoption of digital home technologies and innovative Internet of Things (IoT) experiences much more accessible to many more people by democratizing and simplifying home automation.

In September 2017, Comcast acquired Stringify, an award-winning tech startup that today provides a cloud-powered automation service for more than 500 IoT products and digital services.

Comcastís Works with Xfinity program facilitates the integration of smart home devices into its single, unified Xfinity platform and provides increased choice and flexibility to Xfinity customers.
