Verizon to Debut Home Control Service at CES
Verizon will unveil a new service called Home Monitoring and Control at International CES next week, the company announced.
The service will be piloted in New Jersey next month, followed by a rollout later in the year.
"We're giving customers a remote control for their homes that they can use to cut CO2 emissions and their energy bills and give them anytime, anywhere access and control of their homes," Eric Bruno, Verizon's vice president of product management, said as part of the announcement.
"The concept of the connected home has been discussed for many years, and now Verizon's high-IQ networks are making that concept a reality by converting customers' homes into bandwidth-rich ecosystems that enable a wide variety of customizable options."
