Verizon to demonstrate Home Monitoring and Control system at CES

[CES 2011] The folks over at Verizon are doing their bit to help make home automation a little more commonplace in society as the carrier has announced that it’ll be demonstrating its Home Monitoring and Control system at the upcoming CES 2011, with a pilot program planned to kickoff at New Jersey. The system will allow users to remotely view security cameras, lock doors, control lights, thermostats and appliances via smartphones or FiOS TV boxes, similar to how other home automation systems out there work, though this will be integrated and installed by Verizon. The lucky folks over in New Jersey will receive an energy reader, smart appliance switches, thermostats, door and window locks, a smart power strip, motion sensors, an indoor pan-and-tilt camera and a fixed indoor/outdoor camera when the system is launched next’s month. With CES within touching distance, make sure you stay tuned!
