AT&T nears goal of 50 markets for Digital Life
AT&T just launched Digital Life, its home automation/home security product, this April. But it’s already approaching its goal of expanding into 50 markets by the end of 2013.
The Dallas-based telecom announced today that as of Friday, Aug. 23, it will introduce Digital Life in six more markets: Orlando, Fla.; Providence, R.I.; Virginia Beach, Va.; and the cities of Rochester, Buffalo and Syracuse in New York.
That will bring the number of markets for Digital Life to 39, just 11 shy of the company’s year-end goal of 50 new markets.
After successful trials of Digital Life last year in Dallas and Atlanta, AT&T in April launched the service in 15 additional major markets nationwide, ranging from San Francisco to Miami, and has rapidly been adding on other markets.
In July, for example, AT&T introduced the service in Cincinnati; Columbus, Ohio; Indianapolis; San Diego; San Jose, Calif.; and Tampa, Fla.
Digital Life is professionally installed and also professionally monitored by At&T's two monitoring centers, one here and one in Atlanta. In June, the company announced that had received Five Diamond certification from the Central Station Alarm Association for its monitoring capabilities.
Customers can use their existing home broadband provider and any wireless phone service to use Digital Life, the company said.
