Comcast adds EcoSaver to Xfinity Home

by Parks Associates | Jun. 10, 2013

Comcast, has launched a new product under the Xfinity Home umbrella of services called Xfinity Home Control. This product is for customers who want smart home solutions like video monitoring and the ability to either schedule or remotely access lighting and thermostat controls, but do not choose the professional security monitoring that is offered with other Xfinity Home services, which are now called Xfinity Home Secure.

Xfinity Home Control provides customers with the ability to get real-time text and email alerts when doors and windows open or close; watch live streaming video of their home via wireless cameras; and manage home devices including lights and thermostats remotely or by using automated schedules.

Comcast is adding to its Xfinity Home service with the launch of EcoSaver, which is a cloud-based solution that can help customers reduce their energy use and save money on their utility bills all year. The EcoSaver service, paired with the Xfinity Home thermostat, learns a home’s heating and cooling patterns and incremental adjustments to the thermostat based on real-time weather data, the thermal characteristics of the house and the temperature preferences of the occupants. The homeowner maintains full control over the thermostat. Over time, the system adapts to user inputs to help reduce energy while keeping the home comfortable.
