Customizing Your Cox Homelife Mobile App Experience

Solution

Once signed in to the Mobile App, you will land on the My Home page. This is where you will find your system’s features and devices presented in customizable tiles. If you have a camera installed as part of your Homelife system, you will see a default camera view automatically at the top of the My Home page.

Changes you make to your My Home page on the Mobile App will not affect your online portal view. The layout of your tiles and pages in the Subscriber Portal are independent of the way you have them organized on your mobile devices.

Editing My Home Page

After signing into the Cox Homelife Mobile App, scroll to the bottom of the My Home page.

  1. Tap the Edit button.
  2. To reorder your devices, select and hold the square move icon of any tile you would like to move, and drag it to the desired position on the page and release.
  3. Tap Done.

Adding New Devices and Features

  1. In Edit Mode, to add a new device, navigate to the Add to Page menu on the right side of the My Home page.
  2. Choose which devices you want to add to the page by tapping the tile for each device. You will see a tile on your My Home page added for each of the devices you select immediately.
  3. To reorder your devices, select and hold the square move icon of any tile you would like to move, and drag it to the desired position on the page and release.
  4. Tap DONE in the right corner to exit.

Removing Devices and Features

To delete certain devices from the My Home page, tap the X on the left side of the feature tiles you would like to remove.
 

Note: Only certain tiles can be removed; however, all tiles can be moved around to display in whatever order you would like.
 

Changing the Background

You have several options to change the current camera view background that is displayed on your My Home page.

  1. While in edit mode, tap Change Background on the current camera view.
  2. Select from the list of options to replace the original camera view.
    • Choose Library Photo - Add images from your photo library.
    • Activity Image - Choose an image from your saved activity.
    • Use [camera name] - Change to any connected cameras.
    • Take Photo - Take a current photo.
  3. Tap Done at the top of the screen to close the menu.

Creating Custom Pages

To group certain devices together, either by device type or by what room they are located in within your home, you can create custom pages, or views, according to your needs.

  1. From the My Home page, swipe left and tap Edit
  2. Tap Create to begin a new page.
  3. From your My Home page, swipe to the left to access and edit any of the additional customized pages you’ve created.
  4. Name your custom page by tapping the default page name and then type your desired name in the text box and tap SAVE.
  5. Tap Done at the top right of the screen to close the menu.


Another option to manage your pages, is to tap the More menu and select Pages. You can create new pages, move them around, or delete any new pages you have created. The primary My Home page cannot be deleted or removed.
