World’s First WiFi Sensing-Based Home Security Solution
GREENBELT, Md., Jan. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Origin Wireless™ Inc. ("Origin") announced the launch of Hex Home, a DIY, wave-based home security system that is revolutionizing the smart home industry. Recently named a CES® 2021 Innovation Awards Honoree, this innovative solution is easy to use, simple to install and extremely accurate. Designed with simplicity in mind, Hex requires only three steps to set up: download app, plug in and connect to WiFi.
Hex Home includes two devices, a Hex Command (a surface-sitting pod) and a Hex Sense (a wall plug-in), to monitor a user’s home using WiFi waves. As people move through these waves, they bounce, break and bend around them. Hex Home then calculates how the waves change and informs users when meaningful motion is detected. With the accompanying Hex app, users can view real-time and historical motion levels in their home, change system modes to manage the siren and customize alerts.
“The home security industry has used the same complicated, expensive hardware for decades,” said Dr. Ray Liu, Founder and CEO of Origin. “With Hex Home, we’re redefining home security by offering a simple, easy to use solution based on cutting-edge proprietary technology.”
With Hex Home, users no longer have to worry about false alarms. Using AI technology, Hex Home has 10 digitally adjustable sensitivity levels designed to reduce false alarms by filtering out pet and mechanical motions. This digital sensitivity is unique to Hex’s WiFi sensing-based security. Leveraging Origin Wireless AI, a highly innovative approach to WiFi sensing, Hex Home’s groundbreaking technology applies advanced signal processing techniques to standard WiFi protocols to derive meaningful ambient insights. This unique technology is protected by more than 30 patents.
Unlike traditional home security systems, Hex Home covers more area with fewer devices. Using one Hex Command and two Hex Senses, users can secure up to 1,500 square feet. With a quick setup time and less placement complexity, this blind spot-free device is flexible yet secure enough to be used for full-fledged home security.
Hex Home will be available to consumers in Summer 2021 starting at $179.99. An optional 24/7 monitoring service will be available for a small monthly fee or users can choose to self-monitor at no additional cost.
