Xfinity Home Security iPhone App: Session error: #13502

Trying to log into Xfinity home app on my iPhone and receiving "We've encountered an error. Please try again. [Error: #13502]

 

Background: It was working fine yesterday. I tried removing the app from cache memory and re-launching it. This did not help.

I'm getting the same error. Worked fine yesterday, and today it appears to be broken.

 

I cannot login and view the status of my system, nor arm / disarm from the app.

 

Reboot of iPhone did not help, neither did force-quitting the app and restarting.

Hello.  We are currently experiencing an issue with Xfinity Home that is preventing some customers to be able to connect through the web portal and/or the mobile applications.  We are working hard to restore these services as quickly as possible.  Systems can still be armed and disarmed from the touchscreen in the home but not through the mobile applications or web portals.  Thank you for your patience!

Comcast, the errors going on today should not be happening? Why so many issues? Can you hire more professional IT personnel?

Same issue for me! So angry!

Re: Xfinity Home Security iPhone App: Session error: #13502

Immediately disconnected on multiple calls. Sat on hold for 15 minutes once. I've wasted about an hour. Why not have an audio message about this issue on the automated system? Better yet, why not email all of your XH subscribers? This process is beyond frustrating. I reset my password thinking it was me. What a waste of time!

Re: Xfinity Home Security iPhone App: Session error: #13502

I'm extremely bothered by this situation for several reasons: <br>1. My home was burglarized last week, so I decided to invest and have cameras installed and added to my security system. The day after they don't work!<br>2. I pay too much of my hard earned money for a service that is not reliable and efficient. <br>3. This is just frustrating.
What's amazing to me is the tech that installed my cameras has service with ADT. Go figure!

I can now log in to the web portal and the app. It's fixed :-)

Don't hold your breath regarding this issue. Comcast service is pathetic and the home security system reliability is spotty at best. Imagine trying to reach someone at the monitoring center as your home is being invaded; right now, my system says there is NO cellular connectivity. I might as well just keep the cell phone by the bed and dial 911. Maybe you should check to see if Brinks or another system is a better fit for you?

Still unable to sign in from app.   website tells me unable to sign me in.   also getting error 21001 on app in addition to 13502

Regular Visitor

Re: Xfinity Home Security iPhone App: Session error: #13502

Has anyone tried to cancel their service due to Comcasts poor reliability?   I really like it when it works, but so often it does not work like it is supposed to.   I have a 2 year deal, but that assumes it works well, right?   I am ready to go to ADT or someone else.

Frequent Visitor

Re: Xfinity Home Security iPhone App: Session error: #13502

You can't cancel. Try doing that with a cell phone company due to poor reception issues. None of these companies fully guarantees the performance of their service. That is how Comcast operates. Check the fine print of the contract, you'll be sorry as I am...

I have also been getting error #13502 for the past couple of days on my iPhone (iOS 9.0.2.)  I deleted the app and re-installed, that didn't work.  Rebooted the touchscreen, that didn't work.  Rebooted my phone, that didn't work.  The app is bad enough (too many site errors, will not kepp you logged in, just generally slow) but for it to not even be working for days is just ridiculous.  Very frustrated with this app

My complaint mimics the comments on here!!  Where the heck is CUSTOMER SERVICE and I am older than 65.  Call for help and told they need my comcast customer number.  Lets see I do not carry that with me.  Iguess sarcasm does not work.  What is it we pay rates for?  Would that be the automated decision tree when we call, or that wonderful service barriers that protect us from ourselves.   I am not going to complain anymore because Lord knows what form of retaliation mother comcast can inflict and at 67 I cannot compete with that

Re: Xfinity Home Security iPhone App: Session error: #13502

I realize I am not the only one with this annoying problem.  I tried calling customer service this morning and was on hold for over 30 minutes before I had to leave for work. 

 

One of the reasons I went to Xfinity was this feature and now for 2 days I am without and just happened to be the days I needed the most. 

 

Also, I am getting a bunch of sensor door false notifications, I mean all night!!!!  is that related to the 13502 error???

 

What is the ETA?

Experiencing same, and not the first time; please add my account to the list as well. This is pretty frustrating.

Here we go again... I had some service yesterday late in day.  Left the house today, and again cannot even logon to the app.   Same error codes as yesterday   13502 and 21001.

What exactly is going on there?   Will I get a refund for all this downtime...not to mention all the persoanl time and my employer's time I have wasted.

Frequent Visitor

Re: Xfinity Home Security iPhone App: Session error: #13502

Yep. It's back again with the same problems as before. There was some service last night, but now it's back to what it was before. Whatever new software update they did, there's something wrong with it.

Re: Xfinity Home Security iPhone App: Session error: #13502

I am also having this issue. I spent 2 days messing around with my phone settings and reinstalling the app before finding this thread. I called customer support yesterday and all that was done was a password reset, which obviously did nothing to resolve. The most frustrating part for me is that I am now 2 days past the trial period where I can just return this equipment without any fees. It worked fine for a month and now I see that it is very unreliable which is the very last thing you want from a home security service. Very disappointed

I just read through this thread after 2 days of trying to troubleshoot the issue. It would have been great to get an email about the issue instead of looking it up. Great customer service!

XFINITY YOU ARE A FUkKING PIECE OF JUNK! THIS HAPPENS ALL THE TIME, YOUR PRODUCT IS GARBAGE AND NEEDS SOME SERIOUS REVAMPING.

SINCERELY,

EVERY FRUSTRATED FUkKING CUSTOMER YOU HAVE TRICKED INTO SIGNING UP WITH YOU!

Re: Xfinity Home Security iPhone App: Session error: #13502

Our engineers have been and continue to actively work on this issue. When resolved, App & Portal functionality will be restored & nothing will be needed to be done on the customer end.  I will provide updates to the pinned message at the top of this thread as they become available.  I apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

 

Thanks,

Re: Xfinity Home Security iPhone App: Session error: #13502

Hey ComcastRachel. Enough with the canned responses. Give us an ETA for the repair of this "issue" that you speak of. What is the issue? We deserve more than just a half hearted attempt at an apology. This is our SECURITY we are taking about here, NOT our internet our television service. Have someone get on this thread who can give us straight answers. Please.

Re: Xfinity Home Security iPhone App: Session error: #13502

By the way, I'm in line at my local comcast office and there are DOZENS of customers in line with their equipment canceling their service right now. This is what comcast gets for their crappy service and ridiculous high prices.
