FiOS TV and Internet subscribers who log into their accounts this week will see promotions for the service, which costs subscribers $9.99 monthly. Equipment charges for the service, which allows subscribers to remotely control thermostats and lights in their home, and monitor video from cameras installed inside and outside their homes, begin at $69.99. The service can be accessed via any computer or phone with an Internet connection.
Motorola, which is supplying Verizon with its 4Home platform for the home monitoring and control service, is also touting the product this week in a video it posted at its connected home blog.
Verizon first unveiled the home monitoring and control service in January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The product will compete with similar services from Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC), Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) and other rivals.
