Literally so, as you’ll see in the linked article, Xfinity’s Security System Flaws Open Homes to Thieves. At issue is wireless technology that is easily jammed, and Xfinity software which ‘fails positive’, meaning, if it doesn’t hear from a sensor in the house then it presumes all is well instead of alerting the homeowner in a text or email about the condition.

Xfinity so far has not responded to either the authors of the report or CERT. Maybe something is jamming their radar to consumer concerns too.
