TWC Intelligent Home Adds Video Smarts

Time Warner Cable said it has enhanced its IntelligentHome security/home automation product with an option that lets customers to capture and playback continuously recorded video from their security cameras. 

That option, called 24/7 Playback, can be added for another $5 per month per camera, TWC said, noting that the feature lets customers go back and review what happened in and near the home while away at work or on vacation.

Customers can currently view recorded Playback video via a secure Website, but TWC said it expects to extend that capability to its free mobile app.

"The ability to view video clips and pictures captured on our home security cameras has always been one of the most popular features of IntelligentHome, and 24/7 Playback takes home monitoring to the next level," said Adam Mayer, VP of Time Warner Cable IntelligentHome, in a statement. "Now, the system can capture every second of every day for up to ten days, so if something doesn't look right at home, the customer can go back and view the uninterrupted recording to see what happened."
