What works with XFINITY
If you’re a Comcast’s Xfinity Home subscriber and want to update your space into a smart home, here are some key things to keep in mind.
Comcast’s Xfinity xFi service not only helps you set up your home Wi-Fi correctly, but onboard new connected devices, as long as you have an Xfinity xFi Wireless Gateway or the xFi Advanced Gateway. For now download the Xfinity Home mobile app to connect smart devices to your network and manage and control them from anywhere.
The GearBrain can easily show you which smart devices work with the Xfinity platform. To start, select a product category from the dropdown filter to bring up every smart device that works with Xfinity. You'll be able to read reviews, find relevant content from the editors of GearBrain like How To’s and news updates — as well as locate and buy the item online. Let’s get started.
Comcast’s Xfinity platform is designed to meet a multitude of needs in your home bringing entertainment, security, an internet connection and smart home control into your space. For those who subscribe to Xfinity, and already take advantage of its services, it may be worthwhile to add connected devices that already work within this platform.
Linking devices that work with Xfinity extends the way you can run your home, while also staying connected to your family as well. The range of connected products that work with Comcast’s platform include Nest thermostats, Lifx and GE lights, Yale Assure locks, Chamberlain garage door openers, door and window sensors plus other devices — which can be stitched together to create personalized alerts and scenes specific to your needs.
The Xfinity app also brings a lot of control to your smart home devices, allowing you to not just operate them, but customize what you want to see, right on a smartphone. For example, Xfinity lets you get alerts, which are sent right to your mobile device. When a child comes home from school, you can know immediately, from a live notification sent to your smartphone. (And you can set limits on what your children can watch through the Xfinity xFi app, whether that’s on a smartphone, tablet or computer.)
Voice control is also supported through Xfinity, allowing to run your entertainment through a smart remote — but also connected products by speaking your request aloud.
Knowing how your family is doing is important. But Xfinity also has a number of bonus features, with new ones added all the time. Have a bit of March Madness? Xfinity lets you show off your team loyalty with voice commands that link to connected lightbulbs, bathing your living room in the colors that show you’re a fan.
Xfinity is the gateway to a number of ways you can control your home — from linking lights to your TV programming, locating missing items and even helping ensure your children are safe. Ready to get started? We’re here to help.
