In addition, the service comes with a tablet-like touch screen with a menu of widgets that allow access to the latest weather, news, traffic, and sports scores.

In addition to 24/7 professional monitoring, Xfinity Home provides customers with the ability to:

- watch live streaming video of their home via video wireless video cameras; - access security controls remotely via a Web portal or the Xfinity Security app for the iPhone; - manage home utilities like digital thermostats and lights; - have more peace of mind since both battery and cellular backup helps ensure customers remain fully protected even in the event of a power outage.
