Benefits

The benefits of an integrated service like this pilot are that you can manage your home lighting, temperature, and security remotely over any type of access device. This can be particularly comforting if you’re going away on vacation or will be away from home for extended periods of time. Although lighting and temperature may be able to take care of themselves via timers or thermostats, the ability to see who’s at the front door or to check that you locked all the doors is a definite benefit for peace of mind.

Another benefit, whether accessed and operated by the homeowner in-home or remotely, is the ability to consolidate all homemanagement functions into a single application. This way you can adjust your settings in one place instead of having to run all over the house and adjust each device separately. With consumerproducts companies working together in alliances such as the Internet Home Alliance, the future vision of these integrated operations is within sight.
