Viewing Continuous Video Recording Activity With the Homelife Mobile App

The Homelife mobile app allows you to access your Continuous Video Recording (CVR) activity. Through the Homelife mobile app, you can view and navigate through recordings via a timeline, calendar, and recorded motion events, as well as save video clips directly to your mobile device.


  • A Cox watermark displays on live video and saved videos.
  • Only the most recent 10-days of recordings displays.
  • Mobile devices require updates to their operating systems to ensure the software is secure and resolve operating issues. This requires Cox to ensure our apps are compatible. For more information, refer to Cox Homelife Mobile Operating System Requirements.

Follow the steps below to access your CVR activity.

  1. Sign in to the Homelife mobile app.
  2. From the Overview screen, swipe through the camera carousel to view feeds from each of your cameras.
