Comcast Launches Smart Home in Michigan

Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) announced the launch of Xfinity Home across the company's service area in Michigan. Xfinity Home offers traditional home security components, such as police and fire alarm protection with 24/7 professional monitoring, 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 and Google Play for Android.

The service was first unveiled in Houston in mid-2010 with the name "Xfinity Home Security" and is continuing to roll out in various markets across the United States.
