  • Everything!!!! Wonderful.

    By i don't know nothing
    Overall I never had any issues that couldn’t be corrected over the phone or with a tech coming to my home. We been very happy with our service. Today, we had a new upgraded router fir our WiFi installed as the old one nearly 3 years of age was dropping our WiFi off the net. This happened about 3 times in about 30 days time. Called. They got us back on line every time. But it was apparent we needed to upgrade our router. So one cane out within 48 hours to switch out our older router for new improved one. I know and read lots of complaints about Xfinity but I think some customers are spoiling for a “ fight”. I treat the customer service agents like humans trying to do their job. I have yet to receive poor service or felt like I needed to switch to yet another provider. We are pretty happy with our service and all the techs we have had to problem solve and fix any issues. Thank you.
  • Xfinity internet, Home Security, Telephone

    By RandyC49
    We were with xfinity for internet and home security system. After a year of paying on the security system we then owned the system. We never had any problems with them. But like anyone that is of a low income your always looking for a better and cheaper price. We went with a different system that was a part of our mobile phones system just to find out that they were just one of many they offered. We ended up with a company that we had, had in the past. The experience with that company soured greatly and we removed ourselves from them just to find out years later that now we were stuck with again. We have just today had brought xfinity back into our home and I will rest comfortably knowing that the services we now have a good company back into our home. I just want to say a huge thank you to xfinity for piece of mind. Sincerely, Randy Christensen
  • Better than Expected.

    By BladeDaRazor
    I got the Xfinity Home Service with Cameras. I love the fact that when I’m a work and go into the app I can filter by Vehicles and People. How does the app know to do that!? I purchased the outlet that I can control from my app and it’s cool that it lets us set rules. I have it so that the lights are off at a certain time, Incase the kids forget and leave the lights on. Also I think it’s wonderful that I can see a log of what time doors or windows open and close. The best thing is that if a sensors battery is dying, the app will link me to directions on how to change it. It even shows me what kind of battery to purchase. I know big companies like Xfinity has a lot of complains, mostly about price but you gotta pay if for quality. They roped these programmers from Apple and Google most likely!

    It’s a great app and works the way I need it to. Easy to navigate and intuitive. However, I believe there can be improvements. I noticed that even if the primary user changes the password for an unrestricted secondary user, they can still navigate through the app and perform functions. The only time they will be forced to enter in the new credentials is if the user brings up the carousel with all the apps running in the background and swipes up to close the app. If there is a password change, the user should be required to enter in the updated credentials and be prevented from using the app until it is completed. I’ve noticed that it goes across the board with the all the Xfinity Apps. This poses a security issue. Most apps that I change passwords (which I’m logged in to) will force me to login with the updated credentials before continuing to use the app.
  • App refuses to load our camera preview

    By Adair96
    I like the Xfinity service. However, the app, not so much. We haven’t even had the service a full 2 or 3 months and the camera preview from our phone does not ever load. Just tells us it is loading with the three dots. Then it never does. Always says “troubleshoot”. We have troubleshot everything and it still won’t load. It was working when we first got it, then it stopped and that was it. We got the camera so that my husband can see us when he is away and so that we can both keep an eye on the house when we aren’t home. We don’t live in a bad area at all. But I’m paying for something and not even getting full service. Plan to call Xfinity tomorrow, but they’ll probably tell me it’s the app developers issue and there’s nothing they can do about it. Now it records the movement, so that so good, but we can’t view footage live as it is happening and that’s an issue. I’ll update my review when it gets fixed.
  • The Camera Connection

    By Iphne addict
    This app works fine with letting me know the entrance and exit times it also works fine with setting my alarm and disarming the alarm by fingerprint or dialing in the passcode. The problem I am having is when I go to view my home when I'm away and the camera preview as well as the camera live recording is not available or is just the little three dots going around on the screen until I just give up and close the app. The sad part is I end up deleting the app off my phone and reinstalling and it still doesn't work. And it's not just the app it also is when I connect to the camera from my television,tablet and computer it never connects and says we're having technical issues it'll work in a moment and it still doesn't work. This app and the xfinity through computer and television needs to be fixed because if I'm away I need to view my phone whether or not the alarm is armed.
  • Fantastic improvement and wonderful system!

    By SparkyPipes
    I used to have connection problems inside my modular home. Not being able to access my cameras to see what was going on outside S quickly as I thought it needed to be. This has been fixed and improved quite dramatically! I thank you so much for the wonderful connection that you give us in all aspects of our homes! I personally want to continue using Xfinity for all my resources because of the way you continue to improve and your customer service is tops! Lastly I want to say something about your install people and those who come to our home to assess and fix things. They are the “best in the business” and simply awesome! Thank you again for such wonderful service!
  • Xfinity home

    By ShortySpikey
    Before your camera I had ring video door bell and cameras. I am so glad I signed on for home camera security. The camera are 100% the best even when it rains. I had a couple of hiccups but it never interfere with the programming and view. If you are experiencing issues. Check your neighbors make your infinity WiFi signal is yours I would not trade my system for world. Water has never interrupted my camera and two are in open. Make sure there is not other WiFi interference. Xfinity home rocks! I have talk about and the share photos just so others can see. I even call Ring and told them your system started out the best but 21 seconds only benefits the criminal. Thanks Xfinity 5 plus!!!! Xfinity now work on a doorbell please.
  • Crazy buggy

    By Ry the Guy
    Frequently lags from several seconds up to several minutes on arming/disarming, and showing status changes. More often than not, will not load camera previews or camera main screens, including one 8’ away from the router in the same room. Does not always show push notification when alarm is triggered. Less related to the app and more about the hardware/service, our motion sensor does not trigger an alarm in “away“ mode sometimes even when someone walks down our hallway. We’ve already had a technician out to replace it once, but no change. Finally, one time when our alarm went off in the middle of the night for several minutes the monitoring center never called us. What is the point of paying an expensive monthly fee if they’re not going to call me or anyone else on the call list when the alarm goes off at three in the morning?
  • Sometimes good, sometimes bad

    By djmalenica
    I only got the home security “monitoring” to get a deal out of their Triple Play. I have a cell phone as majority of the people. I had land line for a short time and after it nearly drove me crazy with telemarketing calls I kept the line but unplugged the phone. Still, my shows were interrupted with a line across the screen that so and so is calling. Finally I switched to home security. Living 10 minutes from Central Downtown in Denver, in a high rise building, it’s not a bad idea to have at least some sense of security in knowing that I can see the inside and the outside of my apartment anytime I want. Prices for cameras are ridiculously expensive and with the amount of money Comcast rips off of me and everyone else they should come with the installation.
