Home Automation - Top cable technologies in 2013

Several major pay TV distributors are stepping up efforts to market home security and automation services to subscribers this year, offering subscribers the ability to monitor their homes with security cameras, and control lighting and thermostats.

Comcast charges subscribers $39.95 monthly for its Xfinity Home service, while Time Warner Cable's Intelligent Home service costs $33.95 monthly. Verizon has undercut its cable rivals with its Home Monitoring and Control service, which costs $9.99 monthly. AT&T hasn't yet detailed the pricing for its AT&T Digital Life product--a wireless service that it plans to launch in March.

For MSOs such as Comcast, supplying subscribers with gadgets such as outdoor night vision cameras, flood sensors and carbon monoxide detectors can help drive increased broadband revenue. Look for cable operators and other telecom providers to eventually add remote healthcare products to their home automation services. Amdocs, which supplies a billing system to Comcast and other telecom providers, has been pitching service providers a cloud-based eHealth Solutions product that could allow operators to supply subscribers with glucose monitors, blood pressure readers, pill dispensers and scales.
