  • Comcast working on in-home health monitoring device

Comcast's in-home device will monitor people's basic health metrics through ambient sensors.

Comcast is pushing further into the health space with an in-home device created to monitor users' health, people familiar with the project confirmed to CNBC. The device has been in the works for more than a year now, and the company is aiming to start doing pilot tests later this year. The pricing hasn't yet been confirmed. However, people familiar with the project said it will be similar to Amazon's Alexa. Unlike smart speakers, the Comcast device won't be able to control appliances or smart lights, but it will feature a voice-enabled assistant to make emergency phone calls. Reportedly of interest is the possibility of using the device to help cut down on frequent hospital re-entries by patients, which is something the federal government penalizes hospitals for when that happens too often.
