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.

...and your little dog too.

C'mon where are the whiners saying that it is the Feds taking away civil liberties or another conspiracy theory. The Gov't has planted a chip in the phones that can spy on your house and control "your little dog too" 🤣
