Looks like home automation may finally be taking baby steps towards the mainstream — Verizon’s just announced that it’ll be demoing that long-rumored Home Monitoring and Control system at CES 2011, with a planned beta rollout in New Jersey to follow. The system will allow users to remotely view security cameras, lock doors, and control lights, thermostats, and appliances through their smartphones or FiOS TV boxes — the same capabilities most other automation systems offer, but with the added benefit of being integrated and installed by Verizon.
