AT&T announced their Digital Life Home Security and Automation service back in January and over the weekend, they released their Windows Phone companion app, AT&T Digital Life.
The Digital Life Home Security and Automation service allows customers to remotely manage things such as your home thermostat, lock doors, turn on security systems, turn on lights, and monitor security cameras. The service is slowly rolling out to various markets with the service being available in 58 markets by the end of 2013.
The Digital Life Windows Phone app allows you to manage your Digital Life Home Security and Automation services from your Windows Phone. So if you need to dial up the thermostat on your way home or check and make sure the last one out locked the front door, you can check it while on the go.
AT&T did not mention any cost with the Digital Life service and it is likely dependent on the service package you choose, installation costs, etc. You can sign up to be notified when Digital Life Home Security and Automation is available in your area by visiting this AT&T Website.
The key downside to the app is that unless you have a Digital Life account, you won't make it past the sign in screen. You can find the AT&T Digital Life app here in the Windows Phone Store from your AT&T Windows Phone. The app may not be listed in the AT&T Featured section of your Windows Phone Store app due to the market limitation of the service.
Thanks, Brian, for the tip!
