Cisco has launched a UL-certified, all-digital, wireless-based home security and automation service with AT&T Digital Life. Cisco will provide the Digital Life control panel and back-office provisioning, and applications life-cycle management system, which allows customers to monitor, protect and manage their homes using a smartphone, tablet or PC.

AT&T plans to launch the Digital Life service in eight U.S. markets in March, with up to 50 additional market rollouts planned in 2013. While broadband provider agnostic, the service uses AT&T’s nationwide wireless network.

With AT&T Digital Life, consumers will be able to augment security and manage their home from virtually anywhere with options to: view live video from inside and outside the home; arm and disarm the security system, control and manage appliances, lighting and HVAC for energy efficiency; lock or unlock doors for guests or repairmen; and even detect water leaks before damage occurs.
