Next-gen home security tech uses existing Wi-Fi waves
Advanced wireless sensing technologies company Origin Wireless has announced the launch of a DIY, RF-wave-based home security system that it says is designed to revolutionize the smart home industry.

The system, called Hex Home, uses the company's AI-based ambient sensing technology to provide greater accuracy than traditional security systems. Designed to be easy to use, simple to install and extremely accurate, the system requires only three steps to set up: download the app, plug in, and connect to Wi-Fi.

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 Wi-Fi waves, which bounce, break, and bend around people that move through them. Hex Home 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," says 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, says the company, 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 movements from pets and mechanical devices.

This digital sensitivity, says the company, is unique to its Wi-Fi sensing-based security. Leveraging its Origin Wireless AI Wi-Fi sensing technique, the technology applies advanced signal processing techniques to standard Wi-Fi protocols to derive meaningful ambient insights.

Unlike traditional home security systems, Hex Home claims to cover 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, says the company, 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 Spring 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.
