Introducing smart home controls

Now you can control your Homelife devices easily. Use your Contour Voice Remote to control thermostats, lights, and smart plugs. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Dim the living room light to 40 percent
  • Turn the master bedroom lights off
  • Make it brighter
  • Are my entry lights on?
  • What is the temperature inside?
  • Turn on the heat
  • Set the upstairs thermostat to 73 degrees

If your command doesn’t immediately work, try saying “Cox Homelife” first. Make sure to give your Homelife devices unique names with no numbers so it’s easy for the voice remote to know which equipment you want to control. You can rename your equipment in the Homelife portal or the Cox Homelife app.
