Connect When You're Away

With Cox Home Security, you can access your home security system even when you’re not there. Turn on the A/C, shut off the lights and check on the kids after school – just like you would do if you were home.

Get Instant Alerts
Have your system send a text or email when your children get home or when a delivery arrives. Just tell your Cox Home Security system which alerts you want to receive.

Reach Home from Anywhere
Whether you're at work or away on vacation, you can sign in to your Cox Home Security system online. Or use the app from your phone or tablet. Now you can arm or disarm the system, watch videos of your home, control lighting and more.

Instant Alerts

Set your system to send texts or emails if an alarm triggers. We can even take over your wired systems, so when your children get home, you'll be notified.

24/7 Professional Monitoring

Enjoy peace of mind, day, night or holiday, knowing that our trained monitors are watching over your home 24/7. If your window and door sensors are tripped, or your carbon monoxide/smoke detectors go off, our experts will notify you immediately via text or email and voice verifification while dispatching help.

Your Home, Your Rules

Preset functions for your home security system. The limits are left to your imagination. You could:

  • Deter potential intruders by scheduling lights or music to turn on and off when you’re away.
  • Turn down your heat when the garage door opens in the morning.
  • Play mood music as soon as you enter your bedroom.
  • Check your thermostat from your smartphone. And if you left it set too high, you can turn it down with a tap.

Home Security You Can See

With a Cox Home Security package that includes video, your home is always in view.

Get Peace of Mind
You can watch video of your home from your touchscreen, the web or your smartphone and know your loved ones and valuables are safe.

Virtual Petsitter
Want to know what your pets are up to (and into) while you’re at work? Now you can keep an eye on them.

Watch Live and Recorded Video
You can choose to record on a schedule, at a preset time – say the front door every afternoon to see when the kids get home from school. Or you can set a trigger for your system to take a video snapshot every time the front door opens.

But What About Privacy?
Rest assured that your home security videos are stored on a secure network. The only person who can watch them is you.
