We were happy with the product install process and setup, and the technician was very professional. We had a few situations and questions that came up in the first couple weeks, but we reached out to the support contacts and they were very responsive and helpful getting us the information and answers we were looking for. My wife and I are happy with the product and would recommend it to anyone who was asking. We particularly like the pendant with fall detection and help button, and also that the base unit runs on cellular vs. whatever home internet we might be using. We rarely have internet outages, but I haven't seen a cellular outage at home that I recall at all. When activated, the unit establishes connection to the monitoring service quickly and is loud and clear even when not near the base unit.
Thank you for your recommendation. It is great to know that the Homelife Care team was helpful and responsive when you had questions and that you are happy with the equipment and cellular service.
Recently, not too long after having the service installed my mother fell in the night. The Homelife Care system contacted EMS and because I had put a combination lock in on the front door they came in and were able to basically save her. Thank you Cox Homelife Care and EMSA!
Wow! We are so happy to hear that your mother is okay and that Homelife Care was able to provide access to help she needed. It's stories like these that inspire us to keep doing what we are doing. Thank you for sharing.
We have a had a great experience with Cox Homelife Care! Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable from the installer to the individuals who respond to emergency calls. They were very responsive and courteous and made sure we did not have any problems. We would recommend to anyone in need of a emergency response for a loved one.
So far we’ve only experienced 3 false alarms. In the process of researching those, I’ve found the following. Emergency contacts has not been set up properly. The number you call for support doesn’t realize that you are calling in about home care alert. The support department does not know how to identify which device triggered the alert. My interaction with my sales rep, his supervisor, and Paul in Atlanta has been excellent and I’m confident that Paul is working to be sure I my causes of the false alarms are identified. I wish you could adjust emergency contacts online and have more reporting such as when the pendant first detects movement in the morning.
Installation was a breeze and operation of the equipment is simple. My mom, however, has advanced stages of Alzheimer's and isn't able to remember what to do, so really the fall detection is the primary benefit for us. Couple of items that I have noted: 1) adhesive on second device not adequate. Device fell off what within about 30 days. 2) Toss pendant on counter and it triggered a fall and subsequent call. 3) If pendant is worn away from house, shows battery is low. Once back in house, shows full battery. 4) Responsiveness and thoroughness of monitor company is fantastic!
Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that you have had a good experience, but we would love to make it a GREAT one!
1 - We have moved away from adhesive and are either securing the Voice Enabled Devices to the wall with more permanent hardware or using the tabletop feature. We will send you an e-mail in a few minutes to ask if you would like for us to come out and secure the VED better. We are happy to do this!
2 - Tossing the Pendant will often create an accidental trigger. This type of lateral movement can simulate an event that is picked up by our fall detection algorithm. We will email you a copy of our new "Pendant User Guide" so that you can better understand how the Pendant works.
3 - We are aware of this low battery issue and will be fixing in a subsequent update to the Family App. Thank you for alerting us!
4 - We appreciate the kind words. Our monitoring center folks are fantastic, and we will pass along the kudos!
Thanks again for being a customer.
The device has gone off several times on its own with no push of the button or pendant going off or an incident happening. I have had this happen at least 9 times with two of them going off at 4 am. Also when they disconnect the call the ring stays red instead of it going off and turning back to blue.
Thank you so much for the feedback. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
We can see that your Voice Enabled Device is triggering quite often. Our team is going to further examine the logs of your system and see if we need to make an adjustment. If the device is in a room with a television or radio, we may need reduce the sensitivity to lessen accidental triggers. We will reach out to you to problem solve so the issue can be resolved ASAP.
This was ordered for my parents. The install experience was great and they are very pleased that the coverage extends to their entire house and yard. All dealings with the techs and help desk has been excellent, mom and dad have been treated very well. I highly recommend this service.
Thanks for recommending Homelife Care to others! I'm glad your parents have received great service. We appreciate your parents for being Homelife Care customers!

The installation of Cox Homelife Care was straightforward, and the solutions use was well communicated to my mother. The Homelife Care service has really added a peace of mind that help will be readily available if needed, and for an affordable price. The technology’s ease of use has made my mother comfortable enough that she has even discussed other Homelife options for her home.

Cox Homelife Care expert review by Shelley Webb
Cox Homelife Care is a system of professionally monitored smart devices that help seniors keep their independence. It includes a hub, which provides two-way communication, a fall detection pendant and a family app for $27.99/month.
Hub: The Hub is the center of the Cox Homelife Care system. It collects data from other connected Homelife Care system devices and gives seniors and their caregivers the information they need to make sure independent seniors are healthy and happy. It can operate without a phone line or internet connection and connects to the professional care center in case an emergency does arise.
Family app: The family app is available for iOS and Android smartphones. It sends intelligent alerts and provides insights to caregivers to give them peace of mind that their loved one is safe. This allows caregivers to check in on their loved ones without intruding on their privacy or independence. It also alerts caregivers when emergencies arise.
Pendant: Seniors can wear the discreet pendant that comes with their Homelife Care system anywhere, including in the shower. The pendant includes automatic fall detection technology and sends data to the hub.
Voice-enabled device: The voice-enabled device (VED) is an add-on that costs $59.99. It makes it easy for seniors to call for professional help since they don’t need to touch a button. The VED is small and easy to place anywhere in the home. All a senior needs to do is use a voice command to instantly connect to a trained professional who can send help immediately.
Professional installation: Your Cox Homelife Center will be professionally installed, and the installer will be able to explain exactly how the devices work.
Best for: independent seniors who have caregivers who want frequent updates.
