What Are 2GIG eSeries Sensors?
2GIG eSeries Sensors are encrypted sensors from 2GIG and Nortek. They will only work with the 2GIG GC2e and 2GIG GC3e Systems. They are not backwards compatible, meaning they cannot be used with the GC2 and GC3. These sensors offer added wireless security by using encrypted communication.
The eSeries Sensor lineup was created specifically with the 2GIG GC2e and 2GIG GC3e Panels in mind. These wireless sensors provide a viable encrypted option for 2GIG users. Encrypted sensors are much less vulnerable to wireless hacking attacks or takeover attempts from potential intruders. By using encrypted sensors you can enjoy peace of mind in knowing that your system is always kept secure and protected.
The 2GIG eSeries Sensors are actually very similar in function to their existing 2GIG 345 MHz Sensor counterparts. Most of the 2GIG eSeries devices actually share technical specifications with one of the 2GIG 345 MHz Sensors. The only real difference is the fact that the eSeries Sensors use some type of wireless encryption, while the 2GIG 345 MHz Sensors do not. Additionally, the eSeries Sensors have their own unique equipment codes that are used for programming.
A common misconception is that the 2GIG eSeries Sensors are backwards compatible with the older 2GIG Systems for use as non-encrypted security devices. But that is not the case. The 2GIG eSeries Sensors are not backwards compatible, and they cannot be used with older 2GIG Systems in any manner. This may come as a surprise to some users, as we have seen other wireless encrypted sensors offer such backwards compatibility. One example would be the Qolsys S-Line Sensors. But the eSeries Sensors do not offer such functionality.
AS of October 2019, there are only a few different 2GIG eSeries Wireless Encrypted Sensors on the market. 2GIG is expected to release additional eSeries products sometime in the future. At the time of this writing only the following eSeries Sensors can be purchased:
