Does Xfinity home security work while modem is bridge mode

I am thinking of setting up a Unifi/Ubiquiti home network by putting my Xfinity XB8 modem in bridge mode. I have Xfinity home security: 2 cameras and a video doorbell. Will these still work and will the Xfinity app still work if I put the router into bridge mode and use my own router/network?

@Shyrag   You can do so comfortably. All the devices will still be on Xfinity internet, you'll just be managing the network side of things directly in Bridge Mode. All the routing, connectivity for ethernet and wifi, plus network protection will be done at your routers side, while the modem will simply enable the connection from the router to the internet. Features that depend on the Xfinity gateway like xFi Complete, the Pods, and Advanced Security will only work on an Xfinity router.
