Connectivity with Icontrol One Remote Service
The GC2 firmware v1.16 now supports Icontrol One service. Icontrol is a remote service provider of interactive security and Home Automation. With this new option, users have a new option for signal forwarding and Home Automation. The 2GIG Go!Control Panel requires firmware v1.16 and the 2GIG Cellular Radio for Icontrol (2GIG‐GC3GAX‐IC).
Connectivity with SecureNet Remote Service
The GC2 firmware v1.16 now supports SecureNet. With this new option, users can be monitored by companies that offer Securenet monitoring for the 2GIG Go!Control security system. The 2GIG Control Panel requires firmware v1.16 and the 2GIG Cellular Radio for SecureNet (2GIG‐GCCDMVX‐NET). If dual path is preferred, add the 2GIG Go!Bridge IP Communicator (2GIG‐BRDG1‐900).
Updated Equipment Codes
Two new codes have been added to the firmware. These codes are selected by the installer when pairing peripheral devices with the panel. These new codes are supported by Alarm.com, SecureNet, and Icontrol. The new equipment codes are as follows:
- (1067) 2GIG Repeater
- (1068) 2GIG Translator (Coming Soon!)
Updated Zone Types
A new zone type has been added to firmware version v1.16. The zone type is selected by the installer when pairing the panel with peripheral
devices that utilize localized troubles (such as RF jam or AC loss detected by the peripheral device). The new zone type is as follows:
The Alarm CIDs for the new zone type are as follows:
- (334) LOS
- (338) LOW BATT
- (341) TAMPER
- (342) AC LOSS*
- (344) RF JAM
Remote supervision and signal forwarding for this zone type is currently only available on alarm.com.
*AC loss will not be reported to the Central Station. Other backends will support it in a future release.
