Turning on Sounds for Cox Homelife Cameras


The camera sound feature allows you to hear sound on your Cox Homelife camera for live video and Continuous Video Recording recorded clips.

  • When camera sound is not turned on through the Cox Panoramic Wifi app, the Continuous Video Recording clips will not have sound.
  • Video clips created by rules or manually created using Record Video won't have sound.
  • The ability to talk through the camera with 2-way audio is only available in the Cox Panoramic Wifi App with the Homelife xCam2 camera.

    Note: For Cox Homelife cameras with 2-way audio capability, see Two-way Audio for the Cox Homelife Camera.
