(SACRAMENTO BEE) — When Debbie Klava’s daughters come home from school in Elk Grove, she knows the minute they walk in the front door. Even though she’s working in an office 90 minutes away, she gets an email or cellphone text when they arrive – or an alert if it’s past their expected 3 p.m. arrival time.

And if Mom wants to see her girls’ smiling faces, she can call up a five-second video clip on her smartphone or computer screen that shows them schlepping their backpacks through the door.

Klava, credit and collections manager in Comcast’s Livermore office, is one of the first Sacramento-area residents to log on to the company’s new “Xfinity Home” wireless technology system. Starting Wednesday, Comcast is rolling out the new system to its Internet subscribers in the Sacramento Valley.
