Cox Moves into Home Security

Cox Communications now offers Home Security. The MSO started piloting the new product in Arizona last year and plans to begin launching additional markets in 2012. Vince Groff, formerly a Cox director of video product development, will be the general manager of the new business. The 24/7 monitoring systems feature:

  • Intrusion and home safety monitoring (includes fire, gas and flood)

  • Remote access so the system can be controlled away from home via a secure online site or smartphone app

  • Email/text alerts to notify customers of occurrences at the home

  • Safety sensors to detect hazardous conditions such as carbon monoxide and smoke

  • Secure video monitoring available via smart phone or a web browser

  • Control of home functions such as lighting and temperature
