Verizon is offering a smart home service that lets people view their energy use or monitor for security. People can view data from a PC, smart phone, or TV.

Using a TV, a person could, for example, change the home settings to "night time" to adjust the thermostat and lighting.
To enable the smart home, Verizon is reselling Z-Wave wireless networking equipment, including a Z-Wave to Wi-Fi gateway, security lock, and thermostat. Different kits will be available.
If several appliances are plugged into a Z-Wave controller, then people can remotely control their home, such as adjusting lighting.
