"Meet the Millers" Videos


Set Up

Like most families, the Millers didn’t always know how to keep their connected devices secure. With built-in Alexa functionality, their new smart home system removed all the complexity from setting up parental controls and device security monitoring services.


One System

See how the Millers reaped the benefits of having one smart home system that provides Wi-Fi connectivity, features built-in Alexa functionality, and supports a variety of IoT devices.


Locked Out

The Millers were not always being smart about their ‘smart home’. Then they learned about a new solution from their service provider, which not only provides improved Wi-Fi connectivity but also ensures that their smart home devices are always working. 


Speed of Innovation

Why are the Millers so excited about the smart home solution from their service provider? Because it allows them to choose from a variety of the most popular smart home features and services.
