The Latest Lighting Technology from Jasco and Sengled Will Be Added to
the Xfinity Home Platform

PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Comcast today announced that it will soon add two new lighting
partners to its Xfinity
Home
platform, while also enabling new home security and automation
commands on its voice controlled X1 television remote. Customers will be
able to manage General
Electric branded plug-in and in-wall smart switches by Jasco
, as
well as Sengled’s
Element Touch connected LED lightbulbs
from their Xfinity Home app.
Additionally, customers will be able to say “Xfinity Home lights” into
the Xfinity X1 voice remote to bring up the user interface on their TV.


According to a smart
home report
from iControl Networks, more than one third of consumers
said they are likely to purchase connected lighting in the next 12
months. The number increases to more than 50 percent for consumers
between the ages of 25 and 34.

“Xfinity Home is redefining what customers should expect from their
traditional home security service,” said Daniel Herscovici, senior vice
president and general manager of Xfinity Home. “By adding Jasco and
Sengled to our growing list of curated smart home devices that we
integrate with Xfinity Home, our customers will be able to create unique
experiences that connect the devices that are important to them such as
streaming security cameras, door locks, thermostats, and lights. We can
integrate all of these devices into a unified experience on one
easy-to-use platform.”

Comcast continuously expands its Xfinity
Home
business by integrating
best-of-class third-party devices
such as August Smart Locks,
Chamberlain MyQ garage controllers, Lutron Caséta wireless controllers
and dimmers, and Nest Learning Thermostats, to give customers a single
experience that connects and manages their home security and automation
needs.

Cameron Trice, CEO of Jasco Products, said, “GE branded home lighting
automation is the most popular solution for consumers who want to
control and monitor their lighting remotely. Jasco provides the most
popular GE branded smart lighting solutions on the market today and we
are eager to provide Xfinity Home customers with reliable solutions for
their lighting control needs.”

Xfinity Home customers can also create “rules
or automated commands that trigger different functions and experiences.
For instance, customers can set a rule to turn a light on every day at
sunset or every time the front door opens. They can also set a lighting
schedule so their home appears occupied while they are not at home or to
save energy.

“Lighting is a fundamental part of life, and Element Touch connects
lighting with other components of home security and automation for
ultimate convenience,” said Alex Ruan, general manager of Sengled North
America. “It works like a regular light bulb with advanced features like
wireless app-control, scheduling, color temperature tuning, power
consumption tracking, and integration with third party home automation
systems like Xfinity Home to deliver a seamless customer experience.”

Xfinity Home functions are managed with the Xfinity Home mobile app,
online portal, and in-home Touchscreen Controller. In addition, X1
customers with Xfinity Home service can use their X1 voice remote to say
things like “Xfinity Home Cameras” to see their camera feeds;
“Xfinity Home Arm,” “Xfinity Home Arm Night,” “and Xfinity Home Disarm”
to arm and disarm their security system; and “Xfinity Home” to easily
and quickly pull up the main menu of commands.
