I can view my Homelife cameras fine on the touchscreen they provided as well as my iPhone and iPad.
I cannot however connect to them from a computer using a web browser. I have tried Chrome (Mac and Windows), Safari (Mac), FireFox (Mac and Windows) and Edge (Windows), allowed Flash when asked and turned off AdBlock. I also cleared the cache of all files.
On each of them I get the message on all 3 cameras "Camera Image Loading" and the spinning balls.
I had this issue when traveling on my laptop as well.
Does this work on a computer? If not, why and what is Cox doing to fix it? Have any of you been able to make this work, and if so how?
Have you tried a incognito tab inside chrome? (CTRL+Shift+N) Also, how does this flash test come out about halfway down the page? Does it show a tree and clouds?
Viola! It was Flash not authorized. Usually I get a message asking to allow Flash to run, but I guess they are getting away from express messages and just putting a tiny icon in the address bar. Once I clicked on that and allowed Flash it worked fine. I did so in FireFox and will try that in Chrome as well.
Now, why they don't provide a popup request anymore is anyone's guess. Hopefully Cox will join the rest of the world and get rid of Flash and go to HTML5 or whatever works better and is secure.
Thanks to WiderMouthOpen!

That would isolate people who can't do HTML5, but I agree it's more secure. Also, I think Chrome is going to dropping flash by 2020, so they are on a time limit.
