MONCTON, Jan. 24, 2013 /CNW/ - Today, Canadians in Newfoundland and New 
Brunswick can rest easier knowing their home can soon be truly connected with 
Rogers Smart Home Monitoring. A robust home security and home automation

control and automate their home security, lights, cameras, thermostats, and 
appliances remotely through their smartphone, computer or tablet, and will 
soon be available to Rogers cable customers (subject to licensing approval) in 
Newfoundland and New Brunswick. 
"We know Canadians want to be connected wherever they go. With Smart Home 
Monitoring from Rogers, we have enabled Canadians to stay connected online to 
their homes wherever they are," said Ian Pattinson, Vice-President & General 
Manager, Rogers Communications. "Last year we brought this connected home of 
the future to Ontarians in the Rogers cable footprint, and we are pleased to 
announce our plans to expand this service to Newfoundland and New Brunswick, 
and complete service availability in English and French." 
Rogers Smart Home Monitoring does more than protect the security of your home. 
It monitors and automates everything together from water leaks, carbon 
monoxide levels, door/window openings, cameras, lighting, thermostat 
temperatures, and allows customers to customize automation rules to their 
needs. More key benefits include:
