Can I Use A 2GIG GC3 Without Alarm.com?
Users can keep the 2GIG GC3 Control panel local without any monitoring at all. The GC3 panel will still function and sensors will trip an alarm when the system is in the armed mode.

Users can also use central station monitoring with the 2GIG GC3 Control panel without Alarm.com. Central Station monitoring has trained operators 24/7 that will call a users call list to confirm a possible false alarm. If no one can be contacts on the users call list, authorities will be contacted. Certain signals like a Duress signal or a panic signal, the trained operator will not call a user's call list, authorities will be called first, then the operator will call the contact list. Central Station monitoring usually gives users peace of mind knowing their homes and businesses are being monitored when they can’t be there.
