New Feature:

Smart Areas
, 2GIG’
s new p
artitioning solution

Partitioning is the process of dividing security sections of a home or building into smaller areas so that users can arm some

sections of
the house while leaving other areas disarmed. This provides home and building owners both security and convenience, as

it allows
them to walk through their structure without
the
concern of tripping alarms for areas they’d like to keep secure and armed.
Smart
Areas
is shipped disabled by default to allo
w our deale
r partners the

flexibility to provide service where needed.

Smart
Areas
can be enabled
from I
nstaller Programming Question
(
Q69
)
.

Some examples of
Smart Areas (Partitioning)

use cases include:

»

Arming a section of a room that contains a safe that contains gun collections or valuables. These areas may not be

acce
ssed as frequently as the other areas in the room.

»

Having a portion of the home designated for use by others, such as guests or property rentals. Partitioning enables

the homeowner to arm some sections of the house they’d like to be ‘off limits’ to othe
r people.

»

Disarming the garage while the homeowner is at work to allow a package to be delivered and stored safely on the

premises.

»

Secure swimming pool or spa area to help reduce the risk of drowning accidents. In California, it is now required

that

newly
-
built pools and spas include at least one safety measure, including an alarm.
