Comcast launches Xfinity home security service, tying controls to broadband

Cable company Comcast Corp. has launched a home security service as part of its Xfinity Home package, offering both monitoring and remote controls that can be used to adjust lights or heating.

The company made the new service available Tuesday across Washington state. The service includes a remote app for enabling video from inside the house or for changing alerts or lighting. That app is available on Apple devices, said a Comcast press release.  Personal computers can also use the app for making home security selections.
 
The fee is $39.95 per month.  Among other options, customers can receive text or email alerts when doors open or close, or when motion detectors in the house report activity.
