Comcast to increase Internet speeds for customers in Colorado

Comcast to increase Internet speeds for customers in Colorado”

"Xfinity will be the home operating system that integrates every IoT device and transforms a connected home into an intelligent home", Chris Satchell, EVP and Chief Product Officer at Comcast, said in a statement.

The new program will enable Xfinity Communities to address the rising demand among multifamily developers to offer residents home automation capabilities in addition to voice, high-speed internet and entertainment services.

Comcast is debuting a new program to provide single-family home and multifamily property developers access to a variety of home automation device providers and the Xfinity smart home automation platform. In comparison, Comcast says it only has about 1.3 million subscribers to its home security service, so the company is opening up these feature to a vastly larger group.

"Out footprint is half the U.S.", Daniel Herscovici, general manager and senior vice president of Xfinity Home, told me. "We wanted to find a way to unlock the opportunity of home automation to everyone, even those that might not be interested in home security".

Some of this capability came with acquisition of Stringify by Comcast in the middle of past year. The company built a cloud-based smart home device platform that worked with about 500 different products, and that tech will all be integrated into Xfinity's offering. Visit www.comcastcorporation.com for more information. The Xfinity app will get an update for home automation, including suggestions for scenes to trigger multiple device actions.

But the best part about this system goes back to the free price.

However, numerous devices were one-function oriented, such as a smart light or a smart thermostat.

This move can have a significant impact on the adoption and growth of smart homes.
