Homelife App on Samsung Note 5 has an error and cannot load the security camera video. Works fine on iPhone 7 and touch panel. App works ok for arming and disarming system. There is 6GB free storage on Note 5. Signed out of app and back in, removed and reinstalled the app, Cox tech validated settings are correct in app and Note 5, Verizon did not find anything wrong in settings, YouTube and internet videos work fine on Note 5, Cox tried different router channels, disconnected and reconnected Note 5 from WiFi. Android OS and apps are updated and current. Video is still not loading. Cox is investigating but I was wondering if anyone else ran into this and found a fix. Thanks!
"Intruder could delete evidence from panel which deletes from other devices and portal."
Yea, one of the reason I never took Cox Security seriously. Everything that comes with it you can buy better and cheaper at Walmart. Most of the technicians don't even know how to set it up correctly. How much do they charge for it BTW?
Hear ya. But not bad compared to other security companies. Hard to answer the cost since mine is bundled with other services. But I looked at RING and bundled with my other services, Cox was cheaper. Cox's camera though was a ridiculous $210 (for what you get). I tried some of the non integrated solutions...Walmart/Home Depot motion sensors and door/window sensors. Batteries always died at worst time plus there were no alerts to LE or my phone. I liked the Lorex wireless cameras. But at the time there was no app with alerts/images to my phone. Plus there was the issue of an intruder stealing the DVR. The Lorex cameras are better than Cox's camera, Lorex has two way audio. (I think Ring does too.) I like how Cox is monitoring not just smoke and intruder but health (power of system). I don't like the feeling of having someone hacking into my camera and observing me. But they could do that with the Lorex, my computer camera or smartphone. I do like Cox's service. So it was either Cox security or a Bengal tiger.
I am going to try out a few Unifi G3 and a NVR. Crime isn't a issue in my area so don't need lock sensors. For me, it's just for peace of mind. I like everything to be local, so you can't hack it from the outside. Some of the cameras at Walmart only webstream through servers in China, which isn't my cup of tea,
