At the core of Digital Life is the 24/7 professional home monitoring service, which will respond to emergencies and call police.

Digital Life users can control many aspects of their home using their smartphone, tablet, or PC. Users can choose options like indoor and outdoor cameras, remote appliance and thermostat controls, door lock and unlock features, water detection and more. AT&T said in the release that, "People rely on their mobile devices more than ever, so Digital Life offers an easy and convenient way to secure their homes, protect their families and simplify their lives from virtually anywhere."
