Zone Function Definitions for Cox Homelife

Details

Security zones are the sensors that detect movement and the opening and closing of doors and windows. The sensors communicate wirelessly with your touchscreen. Security zones are added to the system and configured by your installer.
 

You can enable and disable each security zone using the Security app. The table below lists zone functions, their definitions, and the sensor affected for the Cox Homelife system.
 

Zone Function Sensor Type Definition
Entry / Exit Door / Window Entry / Exit allows exiting the premise when the system is arming and begins an entry delay countdown when opened if the system is armed. These zones can be bypassed and can have specific tones assigned for open and close events.
Perimeter Door / Window
Glass Break
Perimeter zones generate an alarm immediately if tripped while the system is armed. These zones can be bypassed and can have specific tones assigned for open and close events.
Interior Follower Motion Interior Follower provides a delayed alarm if the entry / exit is faulted first. Otherwise this zone type triggers an instant alarm. Allows user to pass through the motion to disarm the system after entering through an entry / exit zone. Active when the touchscreen is armed and in the Arm Away mode only.

Common uses are to detect occupancy or trigger a rule, such as turn on a light when someone enters a room.

It provides an entry delay if the motion sensor is tripped when the touchscreen is armed. Active only when the touchscreen is armed in the Arm Away mode.
