For those who go to bed and aren't sure if they locked the door, AT&T has found your solution.
AT&T is unveiling its Digital Life whole home security system. It locks your doors, turns lights on and off, adjusts thermostats and even notifies customers when their homes begin to flood.
Maybe the craziest part is all of the controls can be done whether you're in your home or away on vacation. AT&T customers can now control almost everything in their homes with their smart phone, tablet or PC.
"I could be on vacation and if there's someone come to the front door, I'm going to get a notice and a snapshot, and a video of who that is," AT&T representative Chris Carroll said.
Part of the security package includes cameras at your front door that can be seen on your mobile device to let you know who's at your door, along with mobile alerts.
Creators say it's the next step in communication technologies. Helping busy people keep up with modern life.
"Everybody's life is different, and everybody's needs are different, so you can customize, what's so wonderful about this, is you can customize it to your needs," Carroll said.
Packages start at $30 per month and $150 for installation.
