Burglary Protection
To detect an intrusion, ensure the GC2e Panel is in the System Ready to Arm state (see "Bypass Sensors" on page 11). Then arm the system.
Arm the System (Stay Mode)
Apply this mode when people and/or pets will be staying inside. Typically, this mode arms the premises' perimeter zones (for example, doors and
windows) and leaves the interior zones (for example, motion detectors) disarmed.
To arm the system:
At the
Security
or
Menu
screen, tap
Arm
.
Tap
Stay
to arm the system.
The system arms and shows the arming
counting down. When the countdown
expires, the system is fully armed in the
Stay mode.

9
Silent Control
You can silence Control Panel beeps and announcements when arming or disarming in Stay Mode (for example, at night when you do not want to
disturb occupants who are sleeping) in one of the following ways:

»
At the
Home
or
Security
screen, tap the Silent Control
button.

»
At the
Ready
to
Arm
screen, check the
Silent Exit
box.

»
On the
Exit Delay
screen, tap silence.
IMPORTANT:
Consult your installer to determine if the
Quick Exit
feature is enabled on your system. When
Quick Exit
is allowed and
the system is armed in Stay Mode, you have the option of tapping the
Quick Exit
button on the System Armed screen to start the
Exit Delay
countdown. This gives you time to exit the premises without having to disarm the system. At the end of the countdown, the
system automatically re-arms itself in Stay Mode. Copyright © 2019 Nortek Security & Control LLC.
10
Arm the System (Away Mode)
Apply this mode when people and pets will be leaving the premises.
Typically, the installer configures the system so this mode arms both the perimeter
zones (for example, doors and windows) and the interior zones (for example, motion detectors).
To arm the system:
At the
Security
or
Menu
screen, tap
Arm
.
Tap
Away
to arm the system.
The system arms and shows the Exit
Delay counting down. When the Exit
Delay expires, the system is fully armed
in the Away mode.



NOTE:
Consult your installer to determine if the
Auto Stay
feature is enabled. When
Auto Stay
is enabled and you arm the system
in Away Mode, you must exit the premises through an Exit/Entry door. If no one exits out through an Exit/Entry door at the end of the
Exit Delay
countdown, the system automatically arms itself in Stay Mode. For more in-depth information, see the
GC2e User Guide
.
NOTE:
Consult your installer to determine if the
Exit Delay Restart
feature is enabled. When this feature is enabled, if you exit and
then re-enter the premises before the Exit Delay countdown expires, the Exit Delay countdown restarts one time before the system
arms. For more in-depth information, see the GC2e User Guide. Copyright © 2019 Nortek Security & Control LLC.
11
NOTE:
The Quick Bypass feature can also be configured by the installer. Consult with your installer to see if this feature is available on your system.
Bypass Sensors
Before the system can be armed, all protected doors and windows must be closed or bypassed. If any sensors are open when the system is disarmed,
the
Arm
button on the panel turns YELLOW.
To force bypass all open sensors:
1.
At the
Security
or
Menu
screen, tap the YELLOW
Arm
button.
2.
At the
Bypass
screen, tap
Bypass All
.
3.
At the
Enter Code
screen, enter a valid user code to bypass the sensor.


 Copyright © 2019 Nortek Security & Control LLC.
12
Disarm the System
When the system is armed, it is actively protecting the premises. When you no longer want the system to protect the premises, you can disarm the
system.
Disarm the System from Stay Mode
To disarm the system from Stay mode:
At the
Security
or
Menu
screen, tap
Disarm
.
Enter your code to disarm the system.


TIP:
If a false burglary alarm is activated while the system is armed (for example, someone inadvertently opens a protected door/
window) and you want to cancel or silence the alarm, see “If You Want to Cancel/Silence a False Burglary Alarm “ on page 14. Copyright © 2019 Nortek Security & Control LLC.
13
Enter your code to disarm the system.

Disarm the System from Away Mode
To disarm the system from Away mode:


Enter the premises through a designated Entry Delay sensor-protected door.
NOTE:
Consult your installer to determine the length of the
Entry Delay
feature. For more in-depth information, see the
GC2e User Guide
. Copyright © 2019 Nortek Security & Control LLC.
14
In the Event of a Burglary Alarm
Sensors have been installed to protect perimeter doors and windows for the premises. Motion detectors may also be installed to protect interior areas.
Each sensor is programmed to alert the system to react in a specific way should its protection zone be violated.
When the system is armed, it initiates the following sequence of events when a protected zone is violated:
1.
For instant sensors, the alarm siren immediately sounds and continues to sound until a User Code is entered or for the amount of time specified
by the
Burglary Bell Cutoff Time
setting. The factory default setting is four (4) minutes. Consult your installer to determine the cutoff time for
your system.
2.
For delayed sensors, the system immediately starts the
Entry Delay
countdown to allow time to disarm the system. At the end of the countdown,
the alarm siren sounds and will continue to sound until a User Code is entered or for the amount of time specified by the
Burglary Bell Cutoff
Time
setting. The factory default setting for this countdown is 30 seconds. This is designed to reduce the transmission of false alarm reports.
Consult your installer to determine the length of your system's countdown.
3.
After the report is received by the Central Station, an operator will respond per the terms defined in your individual Service
Agreement with your
2GIG alarm dealer. For more in-depth information about specific alarm protocols, contact your alarm dealer.
If You Want to Cancel/Silence a False Burglary Alarm
In the event of a false alarm (for example, if you enter the home while it is armed and do not disarm the system before the countdown expires), you can
silence the alarm and cancel the alarm report using one of these options:

»
If you disarm the system BEFORE the countdown expires
, the system silences the alarm siren and does not transmit an alarm report to the
Central Station.

»
If you disarm the system AFTER the countdown expires
, the system silences the alarm siren and transmits an alarm cancellation report to
the Central Station. For a cancellation report to be transmitted, you must disarm the system before the
Alarm Cancel Time
expires. Consult your
installer to determine the setting for your system. Copyright © 2019 Nortek Security & Control LLC.
15
If You Need to Use the Duress Code
In the event that you find yourself needing to transmit a user duress report to the Central Station (for example, being held by an unwanted intruder
against your will), use the steps below to input your system's unique Duress Code. Also, the Duress Code can be entered in any user code entry screen.
This notifies the Central
Station that you are in a duress situation without alerting the intruder that you have contacted your provider for assistance. To learn how to create a
unique Duress Code for your system, see "Change the Master User or Duress Code" on page 19.
To use your system's unique Duress Code:
Tap the system logo in the lower right
corner of the
Home
screen.
Enter the
Duress Code
.


After the duress report is received by the Central Station, an operator will respond per the terms defined in your individual Service
Agreement with your
2GIG alarm dealer. For more in-depth information about specific duress situation protocols, contact your alarm dealer.
NOTE:
For compliance with ANSI/SIA CP-01-2010, the Duress Code must be a unique code. For more in-depth information, see the GC2 User Guide. Copyright © 2019 Nortek Security & Control LLC.
16
In the Event of a Fire Alarm
In the event an installed fire protection zone detects an issue, the following will occur:
1.
The alarm siren immediately sounds and continues to sound until a User Code is entered or for the amount of time specified by the
Fire Bell
Cutoff Time
setting. The factory default setting is four (4) minutes. Consult your installer to determine the cutoff time that has been configured
for your system.
2.
After the report is received by the Central Station, an operator will respond per the terms defined in your individual Service
Agreement with your
2GIG alarm dealer. For more in-depth information about specific alarm protocols, contact your alarm dealer.
If a fire alarm is activated, the system emits a warning siren and immediately reports a fire to the Central Station.
To protect yourself and occupants do
the following:
1.
If flames or smoke are present, yell "Fire!" to alert all occupants of a fire.
2.
Immediately evacuate all occupants from the premises and remain at a safe distance away from the premises.
3.
Dial 9-1-1 (or your region’s emergency services number) to report the situation to authorities. Always wait to call from a safe location.
Fire and Emergency Protection
Smoke and Carbon Monoxide (CO) detectors may be installed to protect the occupants of the dwelling from the harmful, and possibly deadly ef
fects
of smoke, heat, and fire-related dangers. The system's fire and emergency protection features are always protecting the premises. See "Warnings" on
page 23.
NOTE:
A professional installer must ensure that all Smoke/Heat alarms and CO detectors are installed in compliance with all national, regional,
and local laws, statutes, and guidelines.
DANGER:
To protect yourself and others from serious injury and/or death, do NOT reenter the premises until it has been deemed safe by
emergency officials.
NOTE:
It is important to establish and practice an Escape Plan with all members of your household in the event of a fire. For more in-depth
information, see the
GC2e User Guide
.

17
Manual Alarms
You can notify the Central Station of an emergency event by manually activating the alarm at the GC2e Panel. The
Alarm
button on the GC2e Panel
is designed with a double-action trigger. This means you must first press the
Alarm
button on the panel and then touch and hold the appropriate alarm
button on the touchscreen. This reduces the risk of inadvertently transmitting a false alarm to the Central Station.
To activate a manual alarm:
Press the
Alarm
button on the GC2e Panel.
Touch and hold the
Panic
,
Fire
or
Emergency
button for two (2) seconds.


NOTE:
Consult your installer to determine if one or more Wireless Keypads, Wireless 4-Button Key Fob Remotes, or Panic Button Remotes
have been configured to trigger alarms on your system when the appropriate button or button-combination is pressed. If configured to trigger
alarms, the remote will transmit an alert to the system. The system then transmits the appropriate report to the Central Station. For more in-
depth information, see the
GC2e User Guide
. Copyright © 2019 Nortek Security & Control LLC.
18
Security Codes
The system supports a total of 60 unique security codes, which includes the types of security codes detailed below and one (1) Installer Code which is
reserved for use by 2GIG alarm dealers and their professional installers.
Types of Security Codes
The system supports three (3) types of security codes:

»
Master User:
You are provided one (1) Master User Code for accessing the System Settings and,
depending how the installer configures your system, other protected features.
The factory default
setting for the four-digit code is: 1111. You should always change the default code to a unique one.
See "Change the Master User or Duress Code" on the facing page.

»
User:
You can create up to 62 unique user access codes. This is the code that occupants use to
arm and/or disarm the system. See "Create a User Code" on page 20.

»
Duress:
You are provided one (1) Duress Code (User Code #8). See "If You Need to Use the
Duress Code" on page 15. The person who knows the Master User Code should set up the Duress
Code that is known only by trusted system users. See "Change the Master User or Duress Code"
on the facing page. Copyright © 2019 Nortek Security & Control LLC.
19
Change the Master User or Duress Code
The
Master User Code
provides users with the ability to access the
System Settings
menu and, depending on your system configuration, may also
provide access to other protected features. The
Duress
code lets users send a silent duress report to the Central Station. See "If You Need to Use the
Duress Code" on page 15.
IMPORTANT:
When customizing codes for your system, ensure they are simple enough to remember, but not something that can be
easily guessed or discovered by an intruder. For example, do not use the dwelling’s physical address, telephone digits, birth dates, or
birth years. Codes should only be given to trusted individuals. For example, in a residential installation the primary homeowner may know
the Master User Code, while family members and/or legal occupants may only know their individual user code and the Duress Code.
To change the Master User or Duress code:


At the Menu screen, tap
Toolbox
, enter the system's Master User Code, and then tap the
User Management
. Next, continue with these steps:
At the Users screen, tap the
User
button
for the Master User.
Tap
Change Pin
.
At the
Enter a new user code
screen,
enter a unique four-digit code and tap
OK
.
Then, confirm the code and tap
OK
.
