Using the Cox Voice Remote for Homelife Devices


The Cox voice remote provides you with the ability to control your Homelife thermostats, lights, smart plugs, and door locks.

Use the following tips to set up your devices for the Cox voice remote.

  • Name your Homelife devices something unique and identifiable, such as Kitchen Light or Upstairs Thermostat. Do not include numbers in the device name, such as Bedroom Light 2.
  • If you have a touchscreen control panel and dimmable Smart LED lights, make sure to activate the dimming feature in the Home Settings.

Complete the below steps using your Cox remote.

Press and hold the MIC button while talking.
