What Sets Xfinity Apart

For current Comcast Xfinity customers, home security service is a seamless addition to Xfinity TV, internet, or home phone services. Does this mean it is great for everyone else though? Comcast Xfinity’s two-year service contracts are initially, pretty affordable, but they increase to $29.99+ per month after the first year promotion ends, which is pretty standard pricing for home automation security systems.

Like other well-known cable companies, Comcast has branched into home security. The fact that you can combine television, internet, home automation and security into one package is what sets Xfinity apart from other options. Another thing that sets Xfinity apart is that you can control your alarm system with your Comcast television remote.  These features make Xfinity perfect for customers that want to combine internet, television and home security.
