Keep your smart home connected through everything

When there’s an internet disruption, your Homelife system is designed to operate on a cellular backup that can notify our Central Monitoring Station in case of an emergency. To make sure you continue to have a backup system once 3G is phased out on February 22, 2022, we’re providing a new 4G power adapter for your Touchscreen at no cost.


All it takes is one click

The best part of all—ordering your free 4G power adapter only takes a few minutes, and installation is quick and easy. If you have any questions along the way, feel free to chat with us.

A strong backup for your smart home

Your Homelife Touchscreen’s power adapter makes sure your smart home continues to work if you ever lose internet connection—this is especially important if alarm notifications need to be sent out to dispatch emergency first responders. To avoid losing this cellular backup feature, update your current 3G system to 4G today.

Touchscreen 4G power adapter FAQs

  • Ensure power is running to the outlet by plugging in another device, such as a lamp
  • Ensure power to the outlet is not controlled by a wall switch
  • Confirm that the adapter is inserted fully into the outlet and screwed to the wall plate
  • Verify that the power plug is inserted fully into the touchscreen
  • In the ‘setting’ menu, there will be an additional option for screens with the 4G power adapter installed called ‘Touchscreen Power Adapter’.  If you see this, your power adapter is working.
  • The status of the 4GPA and cellular strength can be viewed under the Zigbee health check under ‘Connectivity’.  It should say ‘Online’ in the upper right-hand corner.

There is no monthly charge for this device.  However, if you disconnect your services, you need to return the Touchscreen and power adapter to Cox to avoid a non return fee.  (should we call out that there is only a non return fee for the TS?)
