Re: Recent xfinity home app update

So finally after my husband was passed around to theee different departments he was finally connected to advanced technology and they finally got it resolved. When Comcast did the upgrade they didn't import the correct email address or the full email address. We are working!!

Re: Recent xfinity home app update

Hi,

 

I would like to validate that you are using the app we currently have in the app store that is not associated with our 'Comcast Labs' version of the app.  The easiest way is to make sure you have a black icon for the app (instead of a white).

 

Thank you.

Correct it is the black one. I have deleted it and reinstalled it several times as well as turned my phone off. I am running the most current IOS version 7.1. I continue to get this message. "We have encountered an error, please try again. Error code 23008".

Really? Like I would be trying to use this app if I wasn't an xfinity home subscriber. I have the full plan from cameras, to lights and thermostats. My continued problem is that this app update won't let me log in.

Re: Recent xfinity home app update

My iPhone updated also and now I can't view the live camera any more.  I get a playback live video error 13999.  Kinda defeats the whole purpose of viewing my home camera while I am away. 

Official Employee

Re: Recent xfinity home app update

arlenemarie -

 

Can you please tell me if your iPhone was connected to your home wi-fi or cellular network (3g, 4g, LTE, etc) when you attempted to view the cameras?


If you experienced this error while connected via your home wi-fi, can you please while on a cellular network.

 

We're actively investigating your camera issue & this information will help us troubleshoot.

 

Thank you.

Re: Recent xfinity home app update

Ok.  I turned off the wi-fi and was able to view the camera. Thank you for that info. Can you tell me why this is happening?  Also, my sister who has a HTC Rhyme cannot view any video clips.  She get an error that says:  Unable to download video.  This happens with or without the wi-fi on or off.  However, she can view the camera, just not videos from earlier in the day.  Thanks!

Official Employee

Re: Recent xfinity home app update

Thank you for this information.  We are still working to identify the root cause of your camera/wifi issue & this information is extremely helpful.

 

I apologize for the inconvenience & please know that we are working hard to have this fixed as soon as possible.

 

Seperately, we will investigate the issue your sister is experiencing on her HTC Rhyme.  Would you happen to know the version of the application (found on the Sign-In screen) & the version of the Android operating system she's running on her phone?

 

Thanks again.

Re: Recent xfinity home app update

I have the same problem as earlier noted: No camera display on new mobile app (ios latest version on iPhone 5 and iPad gen 3) when using wifi.  LTE seems to work OK.  I've rebooted cameras, rebooted security system router, rebooted system touchscreen, rebooted iphone 5, and rebooted iPad.  Still, no camera display on wifi.

Re: Recent xfinity home app update

I too am unable to view camera feed on iPhone and iPad. It's is working on the home station keypad. What was the update that caused the cameras to stop working on iPhones and iPads ?
Official Employee

Re: Recent xfinity home app update

We have identified a defect in the latest app update which prevents users (with a certain model Touchscreen) from accessing cameras when on the home wifi network.  A fix for this will be included in the next maintenance release, which should be available within 1-2 weeks.

 

In the interim, if your mobile device has a cellular connection, you may switch from your home wifi network to a cellular network to view cameras.

 

I apologize for the inconvenience & truly appreciate the feedback you provided in this forum.  The information you provided was instrumental to helping us identify & fix this defect.  Thanks again.

Re: Recent xfinity home app update

still cannot access cameras from my mobile device with the app. Really disappointed when the commercials are on tv that show the accessibility that is not there. Even LTE connection doesnt work. cameras are on home unit.

Re: Recent xfinity home app update

shaf -

 

I want to make sure I completely undertsand the issue you're experiencing.

 

Did you just start to experience this with the updated mobile app? Are you able to view cameras from the touchscreen and/or web portal (www.xfinityhomesecurity.com)?

 

Finally, are you also unable to access cameras even when your mobile device is connected via cellular (LTE)?

Hi Motownwv,

 

Can you please try logging in with your other Comcast username? We are looking into an issue where this version of the app does not allow multiple usernames to log in. It could be that the username you are using is not the primary for our system.

Re: Recent xfinity home app update

Has anyone found a fix to the xfinity home app? I have had comcast for years and just got my security and cameras installed...I have tried installing the app with the iPhone a few times but it won't correct the problem...I have deleted it and reinstalled it several times but still get the "error code 23008".
It's very frustrating because the whole reason I went with xfinity security is to access it with my phone...any help is appreciated...
