Cox Selling Home Security In Las Vegas

Cox Communications is now offering home security service in the Las Vegas market. Cox started offering Cox Home Security three years ago in Arizona and has since rolled it out to five other markets: California, Oklahoma, New England, Ohio and Virginia. The service includes 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 or 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 and recording available via smart phone or a web browser and control of home functions such as lighting and temperature.

Cox uses iControl’s platform, also used by Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Rogers, Mediacom Communications and Comporium.

Kristine Faulkner, vice president and general manager of Cox Home Security and Smart Home, said in a release that Cox is planning the rollouts of Cox Home Security to additional markets this year, with specific markets and launch dates to be announced later.
