AT&T Digital Life interface
AT&T plans to test the system out in a series of trials beginning this summer in Atlanta, Georgia and Dallas, Texas

AT&T announced a new set of services today called AT&T Digital Life, which will allow customers to control various aspects of their home via Internet-enabled devices.

AT&T Digital Life aims to provide full wireless control of home security and automation services through the use of mobile gadgets like smartphones and tablets as well as PCs.

Customers will be able to monitor and control their home security systems, automation, energy and water via the Internet. The digital, IP-based AT&T Digital Life features many devices and services like cameras, door locks, thermostats, moisture detection, window/door sensors, appliance power controls and sensors for smoke, carbon monoxide, glass break and motion.

AT&T will professionally install the devices needed, and connect the system wirelessly. AT&T Digital Life comes with AT&T mobile Internet service, but can also connect to Wi-Fi, wired broadband and Z-Wave connections.

Customers can then use their PC or mobile devices to access AT&T Digital Life's interface application, where household security and services can be managed. Users can control AT&T Digital Life in the U.S. or abroad no matter which carrier they're with. Customers can also add more features later after installation.

"AT&T Digital Life will change the way people live, work and play -- and meets a clear need in the market," said Kevin Petersen, senior vice president of AT&T Mobility's Digital Life. "The service is smart, simple and customer centric -- freeing homeowners to do the things they want to do without compromising on the things they need to do to care for family and home.

"We’re planning a unique suite of services, from start to finish, that will give homeowners control of their property and their possessions through an easy to navigate user interface. Our focus is on providing our customers with a comprehensive home security and automation solution that offers the best possible customer experience, and uses the most advanced mobile internet technology on the market to make their lives easier and keep their families and property safer.”

I'll get off my farking American ass and lock all my necassary doors and windows manually and adjust my temperature with my built in fingers on a needed basis.

Hack that. Oh sure, you could break in despite locking it all up, but be prepared for a nice shot from my 12 gauge Remington if you do

I think this is supposed to be more of a "when you're not at home" type of situation. If you were to only use this from with-in your house then that'd be kind of lazy. But hey, this is America we live in after all. Wouldn't be the same if we couldn't pay a crap ton in order to be more lazy.
