What Does Wireless Home Security Really Mean?

Ben NyeMeet Benjamin Nye, husband, father of three girls, tennis and golf enthusiast and Internet of Things technology consultant. Benjamin and his family recently moved from a traditional security system with a panel on the wall to the wireless Helix platform. We asked Benjamin to share what home security– specifically wireless home security– means to him and his family.

Here’s Benjamin to share his experience– 

With a growing family and a new home, I bought a security system for peace of mind and safety for my family about six years ago. Over time, the system became rather antiquated and limited. I wanted a system that could do more. Being in the technology space, I know and trust the knowledge of the people who built the Helix. Because they were a part of its creation, I knew it’d be nothing less than a rock-solid solution, so we decide to go with it.

Lessons Learned in Building an Award-Winning Product for the Security & Home Automation Industry

Innovation has rapidly changed the home security industry, and we’re proud to be a part of it. We’re able to play a role in this evolving world because of our team of engineers who find creative solutions to improve the businesses of the security dealers we partner with and the lives of homeowners who have our products.

The Helix platform, launched in December 2014, is the first professional security panel designed to deliver interactive security and home automation services from a customer’s mobile device.

In the past, Resolution Products has been well-known for making compatible sensors, but not the full system. Over time, dealers started suggesting, “You guys should build a panel. You should do what all the other guys are out there doing, but do it right. You guys get it.” With the dealer voice in mind, our engineering team set out to create something new for the market, instead of just another panel.
