Connect Home Bundle FAQs
How is Panoramic Wifi from Cox different from the competition?
With a Cox Panoramic Wifi Gateway rental, we’ll make sure you have the latest software/firmware on the device. And, when it becomes obsolete, we’ll replace it. If it breaks, we’ll replace it. If you would like to manage your own network, we offer easy tools like the Panoramic Wifi app to help you do that. If you need help, our technical phone support is open 24/7 for assistance. Our professional installation includes a wifi signal strength assessment to ensure full wall-to-wall coverage, identification of any dead zones and recommendations for the best solution.
Why is the Panoramic Wifi Gateway only available to rent?
The Panoramic Wifi Gateway is only available for a monthly rental fee to our customers. This ensures that we have the capability to upgrade the software and firmware on these devices to add functionality and protect and manage devices connected to our network. This also ensures that as technology evolves, we are able to ensure our customers receive the newest and best devices in their home.
What are Wifi dead zones?
Dead zones refer to areas within a Wifi network where signal is unreliable or absent. They can be minimized or eliminated by placing your router in an unobstructed location such as on top of high furniture or "line of sight" locations. In instances where obstructions can't be avoided, such as between floors or around walls in large square-foot homes, Panoramic Wifi Pods can reduce or eliminate in-home dead zones so you have consistently fast Wifi coverage throughout the house.
Can I buy the Panoramic Wifi Gateway?
Our Panoramic Wifi Gateway is only available for rental. This ensures that all of our customers receive the latest, top-end equipment and ensures they do not get “locked in” to a device when technology changes. You may provide your own modem, wifi router or combination device (click here for a list of supported devices). However, we will not be able to provide any support for your home network unless you rent the Panoramic Wifi Gateway. This allows us to provide the best experience and support possible to our wifi customers.
How do you control Cox Homelife features?
Our Homelife smart home service is controlled through the Cox Panoramic Wifi app, which is necessary to view the HD camera or Video Doorbell and manage settings. You can download the Panoramic Wifi app free from your Apple or Google Play app store.
What kind of smart home devices are available with Cox Homelife?
Our Homelife smart home service works with our HD cameras and Video Doorbell, which must be purchased separately. We’ve also partnered with select brands so you can also control popular smart home devices you may already own. View our full list of devices here.
How does the Cox Homelife camera feature work and do they record video?
Cox Homelife cameras allow you to monitor your home anytime, from almost anywhere. Our Homelife cameras can be used indoors or outdoors and provide motion alerts. The cameras can also be viewed on your TV using the Voice Remote with your Contour TV or Contour Stream Player service. Up to 6 cameras can be purchased for our Homelife service (each video doorbell counts as 1 camera).
Continuous Video Recording (CVR) lets you record motion detection 24 hours a day and check recorded video footage from up to 10 days ago. CVR is included with Homelife smart home service. CVR can be enabled on up to 4 cameras total
Does Cox Homelife service require professional installation?
EasyConnect self-installation is available and recommended for our Cox Homelife smart home system. We'll guide you through the installation in the Panoramic Wifi app. Professional installation is also available if needed, for an additional charge.
