Xfinity Base Home System

Comcast today launched a pair of new security products under its Xfinity brand, citing the rising demand for do-it-yourself home security products.

The new Xfinity Door and Window Sensor and the Xfinity Motion Sensor are designed to be installed, activated, and connected over WiFi in minutes. The company’s other home monitoring products – all under the Xfinity brand — include indoor and outdoor cameras, video doorbell and smart thermostat.

Customers can customize product settings with the Xfinity app; can add, delete and pair sensors; turn monitoring on and off and set rules for real-time alerts when doors and windows are opened or if motion is detected. The motion sensors are designed to detect the difference between people and pets.

Pricing for the new products is:

  • Door sensors: $20 each or $54 for three (one time cost)
  • Window sensors: $20 each or $54 for three (one time cost)
  • Motion sensors: $40 (one time cost)

Financing is also available for the multipacks of the sensors over six or 24 months at 0 percent. Customers can buy the new sensors at a nearby Xfinity store or by calling the company’s toll-free phone number. An option to buy these products online and via the Xfinity app will be available in the coming months.

The new products complement the company’s self-protection product, which enables customers to leverage sensors, cameras, and other smart home technology for $10 per month.

“Our customers have told us they’re looking for a simple, affordable home security option that they can tailor to meet their unique home protection needs,” Emily Waldorf, Comcast senior vice president, consumer internet services, said in a prepared statement. “Xfinity’s new sensors, coupled with our Self Protection service, can help people achieve peace of mind without breaking the bank.”

Other carriers, including Verizon and Windstream, are also trying to cash in on the growing demand for home security products.
