    Rogers has video stores, TV stations, mobile phones, cable, Internet and now … home security? Yep, that’s the plan according to Rogers CEO Nadir Mohamed.  According to Techvibes, Profectio, and the Globe and Mail Rogers is planning to leverage the fact that Canadians already have security systems installed and couple that with the existing Rogers network.

    After some initial “friends and family” testing Rogers could start rolling their home security bundle as early as Q1 2011.

    Rogers has huge pieces of the Canadian media, Internet, and communications puzzle already—is home security something that Canadians would want from Rogers? While my first thought was, probably not…maybe if Rogers offers value and reliability over what is already available, plus the ability to monitor your home through other wireless devices and the Internet…

    Maybe so.
