Imagine a house that prepares for your arrival as you enter the driveway.
For some builders, this is a reality they are offering as standard to their buyers at a price you wouldn’t expect.
Resolution Products’ Helix delivers interactive service from a customer’s smart device, making it an intuitive design for homeowners. Kris Kaymanesh of integration company Sight and Sound Systems, Inc., which has served the building industry for about two decades, says that the end-user’s smartphone links with the Helix panel when they get within 300 feet of the home.
“So without pushing any buttons, the garage door opens automatically, the lights to the hallway turn on, the security system disarms automatically and the thermostat temperature gets adjusts to the desirable preset settings,” he says.
No entryway panel is necessary.
History of Helix
Introduced earlier in 2015, Helix isn’t as well-known as other platforms such as Crestron or Control4. It is gaining traction with homebuilders, however, especially in the mid-range offerings. But luxury builders are cashing in on the system as well, offering it as standard.
