How 4G LTE Will Change Home Control


4g_home_control_teaserI found an interesting article on CEPro recently about Verizon’s potentially bright future in a number of industries, including Home Control, using 4G LTE.  Any advancement in Home Control is good news to me as I believe that we are very close to having massive public interest in the Connected Home concept.  Either way, this is going to be an exciting year for Home Technology and it will be interesting to see where 4G LTE can take us!

The article goes on to say:

4G LTE could be the biggest thing in home automation since the iPad, ADT and Z-Wave.

The evidence was at the Verizon (VZ) Mobile booth during CES 2011.
There, Verizon demonstrated how its new Home Monitoring and Control system, powered by Motorola’s 4Home platform, might utilize a 4G backbone and integrate with 4G-embedded devices such as surveillance systems and home health solutions.

It is that 4G integration that could give Verizon an edge in mass-market home control – a market that is increasingly crowded by the likes of ADT today and Comcast, AT&T and other service providers in the near future…

Stay tuned for more news and please leave a comment on how you feel about 4G’s potential impact in the Connected Home! But according to CEPro’s article written by Julie Jacobson: “…the future for Verizon looks bright, thanks to the emergence of 4G LTE.”.  One can only hope that home system integration gets pulled into the home along with it!
