Hex was developed by Origin Wireless, Inc., the leaders in WiFi Sensing technology.
What is WiFi Sensing?
In 2013, spinning out of University of Maryland research, the Origin team discovered that WiFi could be used for more than just communication. It could be used for sensing. By calculating how WiFi waves bounce, break, and bend around people, Origin developed an AI software that could sense a person moving, breathing, and even falling. Over the next several years, the Origin team honed in on the research and development of its WiFi Sensing technology, which was given the name “Wireless AI”.
Now ready for commercialization, the logical entry point was the home security market. Origin realized it could protect an entire home with just a few WiFi devices. This led to the creation of Hex Home: a simple to use, extremely accurate home security system that is solving some of the biggest challenges facing the security industry.
Along with our years of research and expertise, Hex has won leading awards at CES 2021 and Red Dot Product Design 2021. It's also been featured in top publications like Forbes, International Business Times, CNET, and WIRED.
