Comcast Aims for Larger WalletShare with Cloud-Enabled Thermostats
Just when you thought your cable bill couldn’t get any higher, Comcast are planning to add a further offering—Cloud Enabled Thermostats—to their Infinity Home service.
Building on their foray into home automation and security, they recently entered into an agreement with EcoFactor, a provider of energy management solutions, to create a new service that optimizes the heating and cooling patterns of a home and integrates with the Xfinity Home platform.
"Through our Xfinity Home service, we've created a broadband and cloud-based platform for security, remote home control and energy management and we're always looking to collaborate with innovative companies like EcoFactor," said Mitch Bowling, Senior Vice President and General Manager of New Businesses for Comcast Cable. "With EcoFactor, we see an opportunity to bring new and exciting technologies to our customers through an automatic energy management solution that works in real-time."
Adding Xfinity home with a thermostat will add $40 to your monthly bill and will require an initial investment of $350.
