Protect your home and family with professional, around-the-clock monitoring and safety features like carbon monoxide, smoke, and water leak detection. Receive instant notifications if an alarm is triggered. Plus, with cellular backup your system never goes offline – even in the event of a lost internet connection.*
Keep an eye on your home with HD cameras and text/email alerts. Set up automations to receive texts or email notifications when doors open, lights go on, or windows are opened.

Once your Cox Homelife system is installed, follow these important tips to ensure proper system function and minimize false alarms.
PERMITS: Your city may require you to obtain an alarm user permit. Click here to check your city's requirements. Enter your permit number and expiration date on your account. In your mobile app, go to the More menu and then select Account.
TOUCHSCREEN: The Touchscreen Control Panel is the hub of your security and automation system. Once installed, it should not be moved, as it could result in loss of system functionality.
EMERGENCY CONTACTS: Make sure your contact numbers for Emergency Dispatch are always up-to-date. In your mobile app, go to the More menu and then select Contacts.
CENTRAL STATION CALLER ID: Be sure to save the Central Monitoring Station's phone number to your contacts so you know when we're calling to verify an alarm or emergency: 1-800-633-2677.
