Verizon Launches New Tech to Monitor Activity on Home WiFi

Home Awareness and Device Identification offer customers a enhanced visibility and sense of security in the home

Verizon announced the launch of two easy-to-use home technologies: Home Awareness and Device Identification. The new home solutions provide customers with greater visibility into their homes and an added sense of security – with no additional cost.

As more and more customers maximize capabilities of their home Wi-Fi networks by adding connected devices, such as entertainment, energy management and voice activated smart speakers – to name a few – they can now enjoy new functionality and get even greater value with added visibility into the home.

Home Awareness

Home Awareness uses WiFi sensing technology to detect motion and report activity in your home via the My Fios App. The technology, patented by Origin Wireless, a Verizon Ventures portfolio company, enables select Fios router models to detect disruptions in existing WiFi signals in the home and let the user know if there is unexpected motion. Verizon and Origin Wireless will continue working together to enhance the in-home experience with additional features based on this Wi-Fi sensing technology.
