How Do I Connect a 2GIG GC3e to WIFI?
You can connect a 2GIG GC3e to WIFI by accessing the panel's Wireless Network Settings Menu. You will need to choose the WIFI network you want the system to connect with, and you must also provide the network password. The 2GIG GC3e Security System should then connect with the WIFI network.
Keep in mind that even if you connect a 2GIG GC3e to WIFI, it will still need a cellular communicator for monitoring service and connectivity with Alarm.com. This is mandated by the Alarm.com platform. In other words, WIFI on the GC3e is only designed to complement the cellular communication path and serve as another pathway for communicating with Alarm.com. Compatible cellular communicators for the 2GIG GC3e include the 2GIG LTEA-A-GC3 AT&T LTE Communicator and the 2GIG LTEV1-A-GC3 Verizon LTE Communicator.
Complete the following steps to connect a 2GIG GC3e to WIFI:
1. Access Wireless Network Settings. Start from the main screen of the 2GIG GC3e. Choose System Settings in the bottom-right corner. Enter in the system's Master Code (default 1111, but usually changed). Alternatively, you can enter the system's Installer Code (default 1561) if you do not have the Master Code. Scroll down to Network Settings, and choose that option. Select the Wireless option. You will enter the Wireless Network Settings Menu.
2. Connect to a network. Locate the WIFI network that you want to use with the 2GIG GC3e. If you cannot find the network, make sure the GC3e is within range, and press the Refresh button. Once you find the network, click on it. You will be prompted to enter the network password. Click the Next button in the bottom-right corner once you have entered the complete password. The GC3e should then connect with the network.
3. Return home. Press the picture of the green square button on the front of the panel (right-hand side) to return to the home screen. Alternatively, you can also press the return arrow on the left-hand side of the panel's touchscreen until you are taken back to the main menu.
