Verizon and Motorola: Use Your Phone to Control Your House
Motorola Mobility and Verizon Communications today launched a new service called Home Monitoring and Control. The service lets customers monitor and control select facets of their household — lights, thermostat, video monitoring, security — remotely from a computer, tablet, or smartphone. Home Monitoring and Control makes use of Motorola's 4Home service. 4Home has two components: client software, which sits locally on the home network and/or device such as a smartphone; and a server, which is in the cloud. These two components together allow consumers to manage their home from anywhere with multiple user interfaces. From the client software, users can turn lights on or off, raise or lower the thermostat, view web cams within the house, and access security system settings and tools. The service is being offered to Verizon's home internet/TV customers. Verizon didn't provide details on the smartphone application or when it will become available.
