LEARN ABOUT COX CONNECTED HOMES
A smarter, easier way of life
Our products are designed to work together to bring you and your family a fully-connected home experience that runs just the way you want. Take a look at how it all works and learn about some of the cool things you maybe didn’t know your home could do.
HOW A CONNECTED SMART HOME WORKS
A connected house is made up of multiple Cox products that can connect and communicate with each other. Together, these products can bring you new smart home features for some added convenience, security and entertainment. Your connected home brings two or more of our services into one streamlined network:
Internet with Panoramic Wifi
Homelife Automation & Security
Smart Convenience features
Check out some of the ways your smart devices work together to make life a little easier (and more awesome).
Check front door camera from your TV
Your Homelife HD Camera connects to Contour TV so that you don’t have to get off the couch to see that someone’s dropping off deliveries or the kids’ friends are coming over.
Unlock the door when guests arrive early
When you’re not home in time to welcome out-of-town guests or home repair workers, let them in using the Homelife app and Smart Door Lock (plus, you can see when they arrive with the HD Camera).
Set up “Welcome Home” mode with Scenes
As you’re coming home from work, just tap once in your app to turn on the lights, unlock the front door and disarm the security system. You can control several devices at once with personalized Scenes through the Homelife app.
Pull up the wifi password on your TV
When guests want to connect to wifi, say “what’s my wifi password” into the Contour Voice Remote and it will display your Panoramic Wifi password on the TV screen for easy access.
Smart Security features
Let your products keep things in check at home—that’s one less thing to worry about.
Keep your family safe 24/7
Take total control of your home’s safety, even when you’re away, using the Homelife app. Your devices are professionally monitored for extra peace of mind, and you can set up notifications for all your smart home devices from smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to water and motion sensors.
Check in on pets & see when kids get home from school
The Homelife HD Camera connects to your Homelife app so you can keep an eye on what’s going on at home while you’re at work, away on vacation or whenever you get a security alert.
Protect your wifi-connected devices
Your Panoramic Wifi comes with free Advanced Security that lets you keep tabs on your family’s network safety and sends automatic alerts when a digital threat is detected.
Keep tabs on your protected doors
With personalized door chimes, you’ll know whenever someone opens or closes a protected door in your home. Plus, add your own touch by choosing from sounds like chimes, beeps, fun animal noises or crowd applause.
Smart Entertainment features
Make your place the ultimate go-to for everything fun with these smart home tricks.
Say it and play it
Spend less time searching and more time watching. The Contour Voice Remote lets you speak up to quickly find shows, record with DVR and even get recommendations when you don’t know what to watch next.
Set the mood for movie night from the couch
While you decide on what to watch, use the Contour Voice Remote to control your Homelife smart devices and make things comfortable: dim the lights, lower the thermostat, lock the door and even start the popcorn with a connected smart plug.
Get stronger gaming connections
Elite Gamer helps you stay ahead of the competition by automatically finding the fastest path to game servers to reduce lag, jitter and ping spikes (included with Panoramic Wifi).
Watch TV from any device
From the basement to the kids’ rooms, you can turn on your favorite shows from any room in the house by connecting Contour TV to your device with the Contour app.
