Origin Wireless Inc., an industry leader in wireless ambient sensing, today exhibited Hex™ Home, a DIY, Wi-Fi wave-based home security system at Pepcom’s Home Now! Event. Available today, the standard Hex Home package includes two sleek, modern devices: a Hex Command (surface-sitting pod) and a Hex Sense (wall plug-in) to monitor one’s home using Wi-Fi waves.
Unlike traditional home security systems, Hex is easy to use, simple to install and extremely accurate. It requires only three steps to set up in less than 10 minutes: download the app, plug it in and connect to Wi-Fi.
As a Wi-Fi wave-based system, Hex uses the existing Wi-Fi waves in a user’s home to detect motion. As users move through the Wi-Fi waves, they will bounce, break, and bend around them. Hex senses motion detection by how much the waves are disrupted and will notify you from the easy-to-use mobile app. It’s custom sensitivity levels filter out pets, people, or even minor motion like a fan blowing a curtain.
Set your sensitivity level in the mobile app to determine the motion you care about, without limiting the range of security coverage. When using the app, users can view real-time and historical motion levels in their home, change system modes, set sensitivity levels and more. This allows users to manage their home security from anywhere at any time.
Hex Home Security Package starts at $179.99 and is available for purchase today at www.myhexhome.com. Launching in September 2021, Hex Home users will also be able to add on an optional 24/7 professional emergency monitoring service for $9.99 per month or $100 per year. This combines the traditional reliability and peace of mind of professional monitoring with the modern flexibility and affordability of a DIY system. With 24/7 professional monitoring, users have access to caring and certified dispatchers who are on standby, ready to route vital information to 911 call takers and first responders.
