How Do I Open My 2GIG GC2 Security System?
You can open your 2GIG GC2 Security System by using a screwdriver to remove the locking screw from the top of the panel. Next, release the latches that hold the back cover in place. Then gently pull the back cover off and away. You can then access the inside of the GC2 Security Panel.
Opening up the 2GIG is necessary for a number of different situations. This can include things like accessing the circuit board to make hardwired connections or disconnecting the backup battery to power down the system. Once you have finished your work, you will be able to easily secure the latches, reapply the screw, and close the system.
The following steps assume that the panel is not mounted to the wall. If it is, then the steps will remain mostly the same, but the back cover will remain secured to the wall. Complete the following steps to open your 2GIG GC2 Security System:
1. Position the system. Lay the system face down with the back cover latches facing you. This will provide you with the best position for working with the panel. This can be seen in the picture below:
2. Remove the back cover. Use a screwdriver to remove the locking screw. Then release the latches, and gently pull the back cover off. This will give you access to the inside of the GC2 system. Each latch will need to be released individually. The GIF below shows the releasing of the latches and the removal of the back cover:
3. Complete the inside work. Once you have opened the GC2, complete any work that needs to be done inside the system. This may include making connections or adjusting the backup battery. Make sure you complete any work that is needed before closing the GC2 system.
4. Reattach the cover. Reattach the GC2 cover, starting with the end with the latches. The latches should snap into place by being positioned into the slots and having a small amount of pressure applied. Once the latches have been reattached, gently push down on the other end of the cover to snap it into place. Finally, re-insert and tighten the locking screw. This can be seen in the GIF below:
