While they say that good things come to those who wait, sometimes, the waiting can get extremely unbearable. Case in point, AT&T’s Digital Life, which has been touted by many to be a long time in coming after teasing those who were interested back in February 2012. Hence, it is good to know that the home home security and automation platform is finally ready to roll out to the masses, where the first 15 markets in the US would include Atlanta, Austin, Texas, Boulder, Colo., Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Philadelphia, Riverside, Calif., San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis and select areas of the New York and New Jersey metropolitan area. This is just the beginning, as AT&T also plans to introduce Digital Life in up to 50 markets before the year is over and 2014 comes a-ringin’.
One will be able to choose from Simple Security and Smart Security packages, where Simple Security looks set to be an ordinary alarm system complete with sensors, which would sport an HSPA-based base station and a 24-hour backup battery. A one-time installation fee of $150 applies here, in addition to a $30 monthly fee.
Smart Security, on the other hand, would see its basic version kick off from $40 monthly, accompanied by a $250 installation fee, where you can take your pick from a trio of other additional features such as a motion sensor, carbon monoxide sensor, glass break sensor, smoke sensor or a takeover kit. Any takers for AT&T’s Digital Life? [Press Release]
