Comcast has expanded its new home security business into six additional U.S. markets. Xfinity Home Security offers traditional home security components, like police and fire alarm protection backed by 24/7 professional monitoring, as well as the ability to 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 a new Xfinity Security app, which is available for free on Apple's iTunes App Store.

The service was first unveiled in Houston in mid 2010 and is now being rolled out in parts of Philadelphia; Portland, OR; Jacksonville and Sarasota/Naples, FL; and Chattanooga and Nashville, TN. Additional markets will be introduced on a rolling basis.
