How does Xfinity Home security work?
Xfinity Home for Windows app uses a collection of smart devices to monitor your home’s entrances and exits for security concerns. These devices include cameras, motion sensors, entry keypads, door/window sensors, and smoke detectors, all of which are controlled from a touch-screen controller or your Xfinity Home PC app. Professionals install your chosen devices and guide you through a tutorial to help you learn the ins and outs of your new home security system.
What does it offer?
Xfinity’s integration of its home security system with its other services has a number of benefits, such as being able to see live and recorded video feeds from your security cameras on your television and control your system with your Xfinity TV remote control (which has a voice control built right in). If the convenience of having all your home technology services with one company appeals to you, Xfinity may be a good fit.
With Xfinity’s mobile app, I can see if a window or door is open, a light is on or a motion sensor is actively being triggered. I can adjust my thermostat and check my cameras. Get notifications if there’s water in my basement. Quickly set up automation for all of those devices, so that my lights turn on when I open the front door at night and the security system is disarmed before I walk out the door the next morning.
Is it Expensive?
Xfinity Home for PC isn’t the cheapest home security system, but it’s also not the most expensive. Expect to pay about $15 to $20 per month to lease the equipment.
You will also have to pay for a Home monitoring plan, which will set you back an additional $40 to $50 per month. However, this service gives you 24-7 professional monitoring and access to home automation and video capabilities. So the steep price isn’t necessarily a deal-breaker.
When the dust settles, Xfinity Home for Windows app costs anywhere between $55 and $70 per month. This cost is certainly on the expensive side compared to other brands
