How Do I Reset the Installer Code on a 2Gig Go!Control?

You can reset the installer code on a 2Gig Go!Control by performing a hard reset of the system. By doing this, you will restore all codes and panel configurations to factory default. Unfortunately, doing this will also cause you to lose any zone configurations that have been set up.

The default installer code for the 2GIG GC2 panel is 1561. If you are unable to access the Installer Toolbox, and the default installer code is not working, you can perform a hard reset to restore the installer code to default. To do this, press and hold the + and Home buttons on the front of the panel, while also applying power to the control panel by plugging in the AC transformer with its battery disconnected. You may need to hold the buttons down for up to 45 seconds for the reset to go through.

If the reset was successful, you will now be able to access the Installer Toolbox using the default installer code of 1561. The default master code will be set to 1111. All regular user codes will need to be reprogrammed. It is important to remember that you should never use the installer code to arm or disarm the panel. Instead, the installer code should only be used for accessing system programming, and the master code or a user code should be used for arming and disarming.

Most users are fine with keeping the installer code to its default of 1561. This is because the code is rarely used, and keeping it at the default is not a security risk. If you do decide to change the installer code for any reason, make sure to choose a four-digit code that is easy to remember and not the same as any existing code. You may want to write it down and keep it somewhere safe for later.
