Google's Nest Close To Partnering With World's Largest Home Security Company ADT | Aaron Tilley | Forbes.com

Google's Nest Close To Partnering With World's Largest Home Security Company ADT | Aaron Tilley | Forbes.com | OTT Technology | Scoop.it

Google's Nest may be partnering with the world’s largest home security firm, ADT, in a move that could signal the company’s interest in ramping up its presence in home security services, according to a conversation Forbes had with ADT CEO Naren Gursahaney.

The two companies are working to connect Nest’s internet-connected home products–a thermostat as well as smoke and carbon monoxide alarm–with ADT’s Pulse system that allows its customers to control their security system through a mobile app.

“We’ve had discussions with Fadell and his team,” said Gursahaney in a phone call, referring to Nest’s cofounder and CEO, Tony Fadell. “We’ve had discussions with Nest in integrating their thermostat with the Pulse platform.”

Tucked far away from Silicon Valley in Boca Raton, Fla., ADT is looking for opportunity in the burgeoning smart home industry. There have been a flurry of do-it-yourself home security products coming out of the tech industry. That could start hurting ADT’s bottom line (if it hasn’t already) and ADT is fighting slowing customer growth.

 

In addition to Pulse, ADT started a partnership with IFTTT–If This Then That, a service that allows users to chain website and devices–to hook up with other connected hardware such as Jawbone’s fitness trackers and the Philips Hue LED bulb in the cloud. But with a $6.1 billion market cap and seven million customers, it’s got some time before these smaller players start making serious dents.

Palo Alto, Calif.-based Nest, which was acquired by Google in January for $3.2 billion, has become the big player in the smart home industry. It’s already shown interest in home security world with its own acquisition of internet-connected security camera-maker Dropcam for $555 million. Dropcam was even pitched as a product to bring the end of home security giants like ADT when it started in 2009. With ADT’s seven million customers paying a steep monthly service fee for a home security monitoring systems, it looks like an attractive opportunity for a startup to offer a much cheaper and simpler alternative to consumers.

One hole the ADT partnership could help plug up for any Nest security system is a home security monitoring service. Dropcam already has a premium service for storing video feed in the cloud, but the professional monitoring that ADT has could be added as a more expensive premium package.

Google Fiber: The digital divide in Kansas City won't be crossed digitally | Mike Rogoway | OregonLive

Google Fiber: The digital divide in Kansas City won't be crossed digitally | Mike Rogoway | OregonLive | OTT Technology | Scoop.it

Mary Sprague pays $83 a month for phone and Internet service at her apartment here in a complex for low-income seniors. So when Google Fiber came calling, offering seven years of free, high-speed Internet in exchange for a $300 installation fee, she jumped at the offer.

And then Google said no.

Google wanted everyone in Sprague's 80-unit facility to sign up, and wanted sign-off from the city's housing authority, which owns the facility. But only nine people signed up with Google and the housing authority wouldn't foot the bill for the rest.

"We signed up for it, a bunch of us, and they say they can't do that because we're an apartment," said Sprague, 75. "I'm OK with what I have, but I think it was misrepresented to tell us we were going to get it."

Two years after Google Fiber began rolling out its super-fast Internet connections across the Kansas City area, the service hasn't improved the chronically poor Internet access in parts of the community.

Time Warner Cable Finishes Maxx Upgrades in NY, LA; Will Upgrade Only 7 Additional Areas in 2015 | Phil Dampier | Stop the Cap! | OTT Technology | Scoop.it

Time Warner Cable has finished the rollout of TWC Maxx upgrades in New York and Los Angeles and will likely finish in Austin by the end of this year, delivering free broadband speed upgrades up to 300Mbps and a better television experience.


“Today marks an important milestone in Time Warner Cable’s commitment to provide our customers with best-in-class products and service,” said Time Warner Cable chairman and CEO Robert Marcus, in a release. “Every customer in our two largest markets now has access to the superfast Internet and new TV experience promised by TWC Maxx. Faster speeds are also available to every customer in the Austin, Texas, market, and we’ve committed to reinvent the service experience in seven additional markets in 2015.”

Unless you live in Kansas City, Dallas, San Antonio, San Diego, Hawaii, Charlotte or Raleigh, there will likely be no reinvention of broadband service for you, with top speeds still “maxing” out at just 50/5Mbps at the beginning of 2016.
