In this Audiocast, Telecommunications Editor in Chief Sean Buckley talks with Brad Kayton, co-founder and COO of 4Home, about how service providers can take advantages in the emerging home automation market segment.


Kayton answers the following questions in this Audiocast:

• The idea of home automation has been talked about for a number of years, but obviously, it was out of reach due to its complexity and expense. What’s changed to make it more of a mainstream reality?

• I could see this idea going to support everything from security to even medical monitoring, but what will be the kinds of applications home automation will enable?

• With every service provider vying for the customer’s eye, do you think something like a bundle integrated with home automation services could be one of those elements a broadband provider could use to differentiate themselves?

• Talk a little about 4Home Media’s approach to home automation.
