Monitoring Your Cox Homelife System with the Mobile App


On the Overview screen, you can monitor your Homelife system in several ways with the Troubles Tile and HD cameras.

Troubles Tile

The Troubles tile notifies you of a system problem such as a battery needing replacement.

Tap the tile to view the trouble message which includes the date and time the trouble occurred.

Note: The Troubles tile only displays when there is trouble detected with your system. It is not visible at any other time on the Overview screen.

Refer to the Help tile on the Overview screen or visit the Help Center on www.cox.com for detailed instructions to repair the issue.

HD Cameras

If you have HD cameras, you can view and save video or images when accessing your security system on your mobile device. Follow the steps below to view and save video and images on the Cox Homelife Mobile App.
Note: Viewing videos can consume large amounts of bandwidth. To conserve bandwidth, we recommend that you view images rather than video when using mobile data.


Sign in to the Cox Homelife mobile app.


From the Overview screen, swipe through the camera carousel to view different camera feeds.
