Stringify, the Internet of Things startup recently acquired by Comcast last fall, has launched an updated app that will bring a wave of new automation features to Xfinity products, including X1, Xfinity Home and Comcast’s xFi home WiFi management system.  

Stringify's first app for Android Wear enables users to set up 'scenes' that automate a set of smart home functions.
