mhh,

 

You're right about lock-in. This is a philosophy financial institutions have followed for years, one of the reasons they offer discounts on fees for customers with multiple relationships.

Re: The Even Newer IP
I don't think this is about the paranoia -- that's just the marketing angle for trying to sell connected home stuff to homeowners. Scary scenarios avoided by technology? Sure, some people will pay a few extra bucks a month for some security theater piece of mind. But in the end, it's really about lock-in. You're far less likely to switch broadband providers if all the stuff in your house is connected to a network that will have to be reset (or completely re-done) if you switch providers.

Re: The Even Newer IP
This is all about lock-in and trying to create more barriers to exit for customers. It's one thing for a customer to switch ISPs, but it's way more annoying to switch home security services -- especially when all the hardware is paid for and only works with certain carriers. I think homeowners are going to see that Nest or Apple's upcoming home networking products are going to be more flexible when it comes to switching Internet providers.

Re: The Even Newer IP
Comcast cannot continue to think it can make money from cable and VoIP service. They are smart enough to know that the connected home is going to be in dire need of some serious coordination in the future. That's where Xfinity Home comes in, and it will be a service offering that will probably allow the company to book huge amounts of revenue over time.

The Even Newer IP
Have I left the garage door open? Did I lock the back gate? Has someone stolen my yoghurt from the fridge? Seems to me this is less about the smart home and more about the new IP - the Internet of Paranoia. Discuss.
