Comcast Smartens Up Bay Area Homes

Comcast announced the launch of Xfinity Home in portions of the company’s San Francisco Bay Area service area. Xfinity Home offers home security components such as police and fire alarm protection, as well as the ability to remotely 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 the Xfinity Home app, which is available for free on Apple’s iTunes App Store.

The service just launched for Comcast customers in the East Bay and North Bay. Other local areas, including San Francisco, South Bay, West Bay and Monterey/Salinas are expected to launch at a future date.
