As far as professional security features, AT&T Digial Life will basically give you what any other security system will give you.
That means diverse devices, 24/7 monitoring, wireless connection, and remote accessibility.
Unlike many other home security systems, though, you can upgrade Digital Life to be a whole home automation system.
And while the individual devices range in quality, the integration is really sharp.
The app and the online portal are both organized and intuitive.
So controlling your home is a breeze.
Plus you can create programs without any of the devices that you have.
For instance, I created one program so that whenever I armed my system for away, It would lock the doors behind me, turn out the lights, and let my temperature drift a little bit so I could save money.
Of course then as soon as I unlocked my front door everything would return to normal.
The biggest drawback for AT&T digital life is monetary.
Between the mandatory two year contract, a hefty set up fee, monthly costs, and any additional costs or contract renewals, if you wanna upgrade your equipment, the cost can be somewhere between $1,000 and $1,700.
In two years.
If you're already planning on getting a professionally installed home security system, AT&T digital life offers competitive rates.
But if you can justify dishing out just a little extra cash, upgrading your package will buy you one of the sleekest home automation systems out there.
