2Gig introduces new GC3 model at ISC West 2014

We are so excited to unveil the GC3  home control system, broadcasting on-board WI-FI, Bluetooth and a couple of really cool new features.

NEW 7-inch touchpanel incorporates WI-FI, ideal for remote firmware upgrades. WI-FI also will be useful for delivering Internet service to the panel and integrating certain WI-FI devices, which are getting so popular with consumers.

Bluetooth Low Energy radio is added to GC3, which could be used for proximity detection, say, to arm and disarm your security system.

2GIG has made the GC3 user-upgradeable for new generation of cellular service by creating a mechanism for consumers to swap out radios on their own. A slot on the side of the panel slides and the customer simply pops out the old radio and replaces it with the new.

USB port to the top of the panel for adding any number of new features in the future. A USB camera, for example, could be connected atop of the panel, sapping pictures of anyone who arms or disarms the system.  And here is new feature that could connect  ZigBee or Lutron Clear Connect radio to the panel to integrate with a vast array of additional products beyond Z-WAVE, WI-FI and Bluetooth.

New hardware updates, 2Gig has refined its user interface and exploited the larger real estate. Gone are the cryptic and buried buttons like “Service” and “Z-WAVE”. Automation is now simply featured on the home screen.

You can have Security in an Attractive Lock

Who says a good door lock can’t look good? Being that your home is far more likely to be burglarized than you are to be mugged walking down the street, you can’t neglect to have a high security deadbolt for your door, even if you live in a “nice” neighborhood.

SmartCode 914 deadbolt is a maximum security defense and should be installed on every door to your house, including back doors. You can have the strongest, biggest bolt with Kwikset’s product.

But what about the looks of the locks?

Take a look at your door locks. What brand are they? Are they attractive or just your every day door lock that you don’t pay any attention to? It’s time to upgrade!

After all, you take pride in your home’s curb appeal, including its doors. You can have front entry handle sets installed that offer the maximal bolt protection you want, plus the style and flare that you also desire.

In fact, you can even have customized the interior of handle sets with a variety of door lever or door knob styles and finishes.

To complement the deadbolt’s appearance, you can add a number of relevant accessories such as attractive door knockers, kick plates, door stops, viewers and stylish house numbers.

For example, a kick plate can be coordinated with a handle set. The kick plate is a finish at the bottom of a door (often a shimmering metallic style) that prevents scuff marks from shoes.

A wide range of design and elegance is out there for those seeking protective accessories for their doors.

And don’t forget about the choices in appearance you have for your indoor locks. You can, for instance, get a doorknob with an aged bronze finish to compliment your interior’s décor.

Let’s go a step further and consider the deadbolts and other types of locks you’ll need for your business away from home. These days, security can easily be coordinated to accommodate your taste in décor, without sacrificing efficacy of the security.
