Learn More About Self Protection from Xfinity

Smart Home

Achieve peace of mind and feel connected to your home, from anywhere, all without breaking the bank. With Xfinity Self Protection — you can control your smart home on your terms. View live and recorded video, customize sensors, notifications, and alerts, and set rules for automation events, all using the Xfinity app.

Easily keep an eye on the people, places, and pets you care about — wherever you are

With Self Protection, add up to six smart cameras so that you can check in on your home from anywhere. Monitor your camera feeds and view recorded camera events either on the go with the Xfinity app or at home on your TV using your Xfinity Voice Remote. Use advanced AI to get notified when your cameras detect motion in real-time, like when package deliveries occur, when kids get home, or when pets are ready for a walk.

That means, with the Xfinity app, you can enjoy:

  • 24/7 video recording, including live feeds and recorded events

  • Motion notifications when your cameras detect movement

  • Ability to easily search through recorded footage and share clips

What’s more, you can get added protection with *xFi Advanced Security, which helps safeguard your cameras and recordings.

Smarter cameras designed for consistent WiFi connection

Our indoor cameras, outdoor cameras, and video doorbells are designed for a consistent WiFi connection and come with a connected power source, so you never have to change or charge a battery. Our advanced AI alerts you when your cameras detect motion. You can customize the zones or areas of your camera feed that you want to generate motion alerts.

Other smart camera features include:

  • HD picture (1080p quality and 15 frames per second)

  • Ability to use indoors or outdoors

  • Night vision

Peace-of-Mind with the ease to Do-It-Yourself

With Self Protection, you can add as many sensors as you want. Choose from: 

  • Xfinity Door and Window Sensors, which let you know when doors and windows open and close — so you always know who is coming and going

  • Xfinity Motion Sensors, which you can put in any room, and detect the difference between people and pets

These sensors can be installed, activated, and connected over WiFi in minutes, and can be customized based on how and when you want to be notified of activity in your home. You can also use these sensors to trigger smart home automation events, like the turning on of a smart light, or the unlocking of a connected door lock.

Designed specifically for Xfinity

If you have xFi, your Xfinity cameras and sensors will automatically connect to your Xfinity Gateway and Xfinity app, indoors or outdoors. Use the Xfinity app as your control center: a one-stop shop to monitor your camera feeds and customize your sensors and alerts.

Once connected, you’ll get an added layer of protection with xFi Advanced Security, which will safeguard your cameras and recordings to help protect the people you love.
