Verizon Smart Home Earns Innovation Award!

by Employee ‎10-26-2011 10:36 PM - edited ‎10-28-2011 08:48 AM

Less than two weeks after it became available, Verizon’s smart home service has already earned its first award--the Service Provider Innovation Award from TelcoTV.

 

“Verizon Home Monitoring and Control was chosen because it combines a lot of the services that broadband ISPs (Internet service providers) have been talking about offering – home security,  video monitoring, energy management – in one low-cost service package that’s easy to install and use,” said Carol Wilson, chief editor of events for Light Reading magazine which hosts the conference.  “Verizon has pulled together a lot of different technology –remotely controlled thermostats and door locks, sensors, cameras – to make this work, and priced it at a point – 9.99 a month – that is very attractive.”

Partner View: Ingersoll Rand on the Connected Home

Verizon and Ingersoll Rand teams have partnered to focus on expanding the home automation ecosystem together to the benefit of our customers.  I spent several days at the home of Ann Shaub, Verizon’s director for product development who lead their smart home project, working with her team to test the solution, our devices, and how those devices interact with the Verizon user interface. As we went device to device, the team, and Ann’s family, started to realize how the Verizon service was truly going to “connect” their home.

My Confession: It has been 3 days since downloading my last awesome application.

 

Are you like me?  I find myself constantly downloading new applications and showing them off to my uninterested fiancé (and anyone around the office).  How many applications have you showed off to an uninterested crowd? 

 

I feel your pain.  And offer this blog for some help…

 

The coolest application I own: A remote control for my house? Really!
