Is the 2GIG Edge Compatible w/ All 2GIG Door/Window Sensors?

Yes, the 2GIG Edge is compatible with all 2GIG Door and Window Sensors. This includes the 2GIG eSeries of encrypted door/window sensors, as well as the non-encrypted 2GIG 345 MHz Sensors. Honeywell 5800 Door and Window Sensors also work with the Edge, as do most off-brand 345 MHz Sensors.

The 2GIG Edge has the same sensor compatibilities as its predecessors, the 2GIG GC3e and 2GIG GC2e. These three systems are all compatible with the 2GIG eSeries of encrypted sensors. Although the eSeries Sensors were originally built for the GC3e and GC2e, they remain the premier sensors for use with the 2GIG Edge Alarm System. Also, these three systems are also backwards compatible with the non-encrypted 2GIG 345 MHz Sensors and the uni-directional Honeywell 5800 Sensors.

At the time of this writing in May 2021, there has yet to be a 2GIG-branded door and window sensor that won't work with the Edge. The 2GIG-branded door and window sensors that are compatible with the Edge include:

In addition, uni-directional (one-way) sensors from the Honeywell 5800 Series of 345 MHz wireless sensors also work with the 2GIG Edge. This includes many door and window sensors, including:

Lastly, most non-encrypted 345 MHz wireless door and window sensors will work with the 2GIG Edge. This includes sensors from third party companies. An example of a great third-party wireless door and window sensor that works with the 2GIG Edge is the VERSA-2GIG Door and Window Sensor.

The 2GIG Edge System has a total of 100 wireless zones available. Most door and window sensors will use a single zone on the system. However, there are some door and window sensors with multiple functions, and you can enroll them to multiple zones on the 2GIG Edge, with each zone being set up with a different Loop Number for a different function. An example of a 2GIG Door and Window Sensor that can be used in this way is the 2GIG DW30-345, which uses Loop 1 for use as a wireless transmitter for a connected Normally Closed (NC) contact, and Loop 2 for use as a traditional door and window sensor. All door and window sensors will use at least one (1) zone on the system. It's only multipurpose sensors that are being set up for multiple functions that will require an additional zone.
