Adding new devices to connect with your Cox Homelife Automation system can be done in just a few easy steps.

Select a device below for more information on installing it yourself, including troubleshooting tips and how to use the device.
With the Smart LED Light Bulb from Homelife, you can easily switch out old bulbs, for new efficient, dimmable LED bulbs that have a life expectancy of up to 22 years! Plus, you can control your lights remotely using the Cox Homelife mobile app, and set up Rules that automate when they turn on or off.
To pair the Smart LED Light Bulb with your Homelife hub, you will screw the bulb into any standard light socket (medium, type E26). When the light begins pulsing, it is in pairing mode. Your Cox Homelife mobile app will do the rest.
Tap the Lights tile and simply tap the selected light bulb to turn lights on or off, or select the ALL ON or ALL OFF options. For dimmable lights, press the square adjustment icon for the selected light and use the slider to adjust the brightness.
With the HD Camera from Homelife, you can now view live video of your home remotely as well as record brief video clips from anywhere, anytime. Self-installation of the HD Camera is approved for indoor use only. Please call us at 1-877-404-2568 to request outdoor mounting and installation by one of our licensed technicians.
To pair the HD Camera with your Homelife hub, start by unpacking and powering up the camera.
Note: make sure you have an available power outlet near your router before you get started.
Make sure both green lights on the front of the camera are on and blinking, indicating it is ready to pair. The Cox Homelife mobile app will do the rest.
Once the camera is successfully paired, you may move it to your desired location, utilizing just the Ethernet Power Adapter Cable, as shown in Figure 1 above.
Your camera views are present on your Overview screen. To switch between cameras, simply swipe left or right through the gallery.
With Rules, you can now record and store 24-hour video on up to 2 cameras for 10 consecutive days when you upgrade to Homelife Security & Automation with Continuous Video Recording. Click to upgrade & buy Continuous Video Recording.
With the Smart Door Lock from Homelife, you can lock and unlock your doors, or check the status of your locks from anywhere using your Homelife mobile app or Subscriber Portal.

You can program up to 30 individual user codes for your door lock. Please note, however, that these are managed at the physical door lock, not through your Homelife app.
After you have successfully installed the door lock, but before attaching the back cover, you will pair the Smart Door Lock with your Homelife hub. Press the A button 4 times until the red and amber lights appear, indicating it is in pairing mode.
If initial pairing is unsuccessful, you can reset the lock by pressing the B button 9 times. This should allow you to restart the pairing process by pressing the A button 4 times.
With Rules, you can automate your system to turn on connected lights or small appliances when you unlock your door during certain hours (i.e. after sunset). Click to buy Smart Plugs or LED Light Bulbs.
With the Smart Plug from Homelife, you can easily control your lamps or small appliances remotely using the Cox Homelife mobile app, and set up Rules that automate when they turn on or off.
To pair the Smart Plug with your Homelife hub, plug it into a nearby electrical outlet, and press the button on the device to turn it on. The light on the device will begin to blink. Once the device is on, it will automatically enter pairing mode. When the blue light on the front of the Plug begins to blink, it is in pairing mode. Your Cox Homelife mobile app will do the rest. Once the Plug has finished pairing with the hub, you can move it to your desired location.
Tap the Lights tile and simply tap the light bulb icon to turn selected lights, or appliances controlled by the Smart Plug, on or off. Pressing the ALL ON or ALL OFF buttons will control all LED Light Bulbs and Smart Plugs at the same time.
