Comcast and Philips Lighting Partner To Offer Xfinity Home Customers Simpler Home Security and Automation Experience
Pair the Philips Hue Connected Lighting System with Comcast’s Monitored Home Security System for Increased Peace of Mind When Home or Away
Comcast today announced a partnership with Philips Lighting (Euronext Amsterdam ticker: LIGHT), a global leader in lighting, to brighten Xfinity Home customers’ smart homes and deliver a seamless home security and automation experience.
Customers can now easily manage and control their Philips Hue connected lighting system through the Xfinity Home mobile app. They can also create "rules," or automated commands, that synchronize their lights with home security and other smart home functions for increased peace of mind. For instance, customers can automatically turn their lights on or off when they arm their security system when they leave for work, or automatically turn their lights on when dark, so their home appears occupied.
"Our partnership with Philips Lighting advances our commitment to bring our customers best-in-class devices they can trust and easily manage on one, integrated platform – the Xfinity Home platform," said Daniel Herscovici, senior vice president and general manager of Xfinity Home. "With the Philips Hue family of products, our customers can customize their lighting according to their own needs and daily routines. They can also set up simple automated commands, such as turning on the hallway lights when they enter the home and disarm the system."
