Resolution Products Engineer Q&A : The Faces Behind Helix

Behind every successful product, is a person or group of people who made it all possible. These people all have personal lives, hobbies, and intimate circles outside of their careers that have shaped their performance within the workplace. Whether it’s to relieve stress, kick back and relax, or focusing their attention on a different project, each individual has a hobby or background that brings in a personality that helps drive an invention.

At Resolution Products, RF and Embedded Systems Engineer, Ben Kyllo, contributed his knowledge of home automation integration as well as his driven personality, both inside and outside of work, to make Resolution’s Helix a reality.

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.
