Alula Connect+ Wireless Home Security System

Alula Connect+ Wireless Home Security System

(formally Resolution Helix)

Connect+  Connected To Life, Not The Wall

Connect+, the first and only wireless platform designed to provide control and automation from user phones and tablets. Removing the panel touchscreen provides flexible installation options and reduces the user learning curve. No unfamiliar user interface – Just instant control and convenience from the devices you already love!

Build Your Perfect Wireless Home Security and Automation System

Begin with one of our Connect+ Starter Kits which includes the main panel, wireless door/window sensors and a motion detector then expand your system with any of our great add-ons that are fully compatible with Connect+ home security.  Some of the kits also include a wireless keypad but remember Connect+ was designed with smartphone control from the beginning!  These kits use the basic Connet+ panel (no WiFi or cellular cards) which works with an Ethernet connection right out of the box.  See our review of the Alula Connect+ Wireless DIY Home Security and Automation System here.

Resolution Helix Wireless Home Security Alarm System - Panel
Helix Controller

Connect+ by Alula (formerly Resolution Helix) is the first professional security panel designed from the start to deliver interactive security and home automation services from the mobile devices you and your family have already selected. The Connect+ architecture knocks down costly hurdles DIYers face when installing a security system. Unlike a hybrid panel, you don’t need to pull wires for peripheral devices or other sensors. Connect+ also eliminates the need to compete for entrance wall space near a power outlet, a challenge for existing self-contained security offerings. Connect+ can be installed in an office, entertainment center or even a closet. This reduces installation costs, while providing the benefits of locating the panel in a discrete, secure location. Every Connect+ system comes standard with a secured and supervised Ethernet connection enabling central station reporting and interactive controls using your broadband if desired. Optional Wifi, GSM and CDMA expansion cards are available providing primary or back up communication channels for both Central Station reporting and interactive services.

  • Simple, no-tools installation reduces costs while maximizing performance
  • Totally wireless peripherals (one and two-way) enable discrete, secure and repeatable installations
  • Direct Bluetooth® local control or cloud-based remote control from the same app provides unmatched system response times for the users
  • 1500 foot open-air range for all Resolution sensors ensures large-home coverage without repeaters
  • Encrypted sensors ensure secure communications

Smartphone control is high in consumer demand, increasing value and satisfaction of customers. Helix delivers performance, innovation, and flexibility! Connect+ includes a crystal-based, 433 MHz security sensor receiver, RJ-45 Ethernet port, Bluetooth® LE Transceiver, and three option board expansion ports standard. This enables factory or field integrated Wifi, Z-Wave, CDMA or GSM radio modules to be added with fully integrated antennas for each radio. The system is designed for easy installation near the home’s router or entertainment center, but can also be wall mounted in a closet or utility room if desired. Connect+ is designed to maximize value and minimize cost.

Connect+ Expansion Cards

Creating the ideal system for your home security and automation needs is a breeze with Connect+.  The system was designed to provide all the flexibility required for various connectivity options – and all tool-free.  The control comes with Ethernet (wired) capability out of the box but you can add WiFi when an Ethernet connection is not ideal for your chosen Connect+ control location.  When increased communication reliability is desired Helix has two options – GSM (AT&T) and CDMA (Verizon) cellular.  These cards allow dual path operation meaning you can set one communication path as primary (example broadband) and use the other as backup (example cellular). Adding a Z-Wave expansion card provides full home automation capability to your Connect+ system.  Control lights, door locks, thermostats – anything Z-Wave compatible with Connect+.  If you are upgrading an older alarm system then options for existing wired and wireless zones to work with Connect+ (rather than replacing working hardware) is a possibility.  Just add a translator card or module and give those older devices new life with remote access.
