Verizon has been rolling out its home automation and monitoring service to FiOS users across the country over the past few months. When Verizon announced the service as an affordable alternative to professionally-installed control and security systems, some CE pros were concerned.
We’ve seen off-the-shelf systems come and go over the years, and for the most part they remained a small niche for people who knew what they were doing and were willing to live with a few glitches. However, when consumers buy a system and service plan from a huge company like Verizon, they expect it to work.
Apparently things aren’t so rosy with Verizon’s new endeavor.
