Managing Rules in the Cox Homelife System

Rules are a flexible method for generating a variety of system actions (such as sending a text message or turning on a light) whenever something else happens in a given circumstance.

The following rules are created by default.

  • Default Alarm Rule
    This rule sends an email to the primary person on your account when an alarm is tripped at your premises. This rule cannot be deleted or disabled. You can only modify this rule in the following ways.
    • Change the method of notification from email to SMS (text) or SMS (text) to email.
    • Add or remove an email address or phone number from one or more people in your contacts list.

      Note: The email or phone number for the primary person on the account must be one of the notification methods.
       
  • Default Arm Rule
    This rule sends an email to the primary person on your account when the system is armed. You can delete or disable this rule. You can change anything about this rule except the When Security System Armed menu which triggers the rule.
  • Default Disarm Rule
    This rule sends an email to the primary person on your account when the system is disarmed. You can delete or disable this rule. You can change anything about this rule except the When Security System Disarmed menu which triggers the rule.
