A day spent at Philly Magazine's Design Home of 2017 is a day spent in wonder and awe. Some of our Four Little Monsters crew got to experience this year's ultimate tech dream house and we were not disappointed. Our little one called it "the princess house" and we explored and enjoyed the lavish rooms like we were royalty. I was most impressed with how the tech aspects of the home blended seamlessly into the design. Hosted by Xfinity Comcast, Four Little Monsters got an exclusive, inside look at the technology installed in the Philly Mag Design Home

XFinity Voice Remote

Xfinity X1 Voice Remote, Integrated Apps, Common Sense Media, Kids Zone, X1 DVR Cloud Technology, Netflix Integration

Right away, our little monster got to messing around with the voice remote capability in the family room. We asked for Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom and just like that, episodes of her favorite TV show were available on the screen. She squealed and jumped for joy so that features was a complete hit. Here's a list of things possible using the Xfinity Voice Remote system:

  • Search for networks, shows and movies.
  • Set DVR recordings.
  • Change the channel.
  • Get recommendations.
  • Navigate Xfinity On Demand.
  • English and Spanish vocal commands.
Using Xfinity X1, sports fans can follow their favorite teams while watching other shows, use integrated Xfinity apps to view their Facebook timeline, view photos, play Pandora, check the weather and more. The Xfinity X1 Kids Zone gives kiddos a safe place to explore content on their own. You also have access to common sense media ratings. Then there's the X1 DVR with cloud technology (here's something my husband would love to have) so you can save content to the cloud instead of deleting to make more room.

Xfinity Home Security Monitoring and Automation Technology At Home & On the Go

Here's some tech that really appeals to families. The 24/7 professional security monitoring provided by Xfinity Home can be disarmed and armed remotely using a touch screen console, X1, online or through the Xfinity Home app on any of your mobile devices. This thing is impressive. Live video monitoring allows customers to see what's happening at home when they're away with video clips provided by text or email. If a certain teenager opens the liquor cabinet, Xfinity Home lets you know in real-time with immediate notifications (... now thinking of having five teenagers all at one time...). The thermostat even operates by remote and controls lights and temperature. You can set rules on the whole system so the lights come on or go off when you want, where you want. The same applies to thermostat. 

Xfinity Apps Include My Account, Xfinity Stream, X1 Remote, Xfinity WiFi Maps, Xfinity Mobile & More

  • Xfinity Apps are free to customers and provide entertainment and communication services when you're on the go. The Xfinity My Account allows you to pay your bill, manage appointments, view or edit your WiFi name or password and troubleshoot devices.
