Stringify, the Internet of Things startup recently acquired by Comcast last fall, has launched an updated app that will bring a wave of new automation features to Xfinity products, including X1, Xfinity Home and Comcast’s xFi home WiFi management system.
With the update, Comcast customers can now display notifications on their TV and pause and un-pause devices on their home networks. The app has also been integrated with Lutron Caseta dimmers and switchers, as well as Serena shades and Carrier’s line of WiFi thermostats.
Stringify is also offering its first app for Android Wear, enabling users to set up coming home “scenes” that automate certain smart home functions such as turning up the lights and the home’s thermostat, or schedule a family "movie night" and have the channel changed automatically.
