  • Video Package: View live video from inside and outside of the home
  • Energy Package: Control appliances, lighting and HVAC for convenience and energy efficiency
  • Door Package: Invite a pet sitter or repairman in remotely with automated door locks, or check to see whether your garage door is open or closed
  • Water Packages: Detect water leaks before damage occurs, or, shut off water at the main water source if a leak is detected

A home security package is also available. Coupled with the service are staffers at digital monitoring centers open 24/7, available to call in police and fire authorities if needed.
As for the app: it’s available for smartphones, tablets and PCs, and operates on iOS, Android and Windows devices. And, according to AT&T, Digital Life is available “regardless of your wireless or wireline broadband provider.”
