In this paper we introduce a new family of twisted $K(n)$-local homology theories. These theories are given by the spectra $R_n= E_n^{hS\mathbb G_n}$, twisted by a class $H\in H^{n+2}(X, \mathbb Z_p)$. Here $E_n^{hS\mathbb G_n}$ are the homotopy fixed point spectra under the action of the subgroup $S\mathbb G_n$ of the Morava stabilizer group where $S\mathbb G_n$ is the kernel of the determinant homomorphism $\text{det}:\mathbb G_n\to \mathbb Z_p^\times$. These spectra were utilized in [8] by C. Westerland to study higher chromatic analogues of the J-homomorphism. We investigate some of the properties of these new twisted theories and discuss why we consider them as a generalization of twisted $K$-theory to higher chromatic levels.
