Description

Users with a larger home or a business can achieve a robust security setup with the 2GIG GC3PK10-3G-R Kit. The kit is built around a 2GIG GC3 System, which is one of the best systems available today. Also included are 10 door and window sensors, a motion sensor, and a Honeywell LT-Cable.

The 2GIG GC3 is a wireless all-in-one (AIO) system that boasts a 7-inch touchscreen display that is very easy to use. Users will have no trouble using the panel for basic daily functions like arming and disarming. The panel is also very easy to program, and new sensors can be quickly added as needed. With support for up to 100 wireless zones, the GC3 can provide great support for a larger home or business. And its sleek and modern design allows the system to fit in with virtually any decor. The panel measures in at 8.9"L x 5.2.5"W x 1.25"D, making it very unobtrusive when mounted to the wall.

The GC3PK10-3G-R Kit was assembled with larger properties in mind. With 10 door and window sensors, all relevant openings can be actively monitored for any activity. The included motion sensor can then be mounted in an interior location for monitoring any motion that might occur on the inside. And if a user needs to add any additional sensors, the panel will certainly have the capability of supporting them. For powering the system, a Honeywell LT-Cable is included. This cable will make it super easy for a DIY user to provide power to their GC3.

The kit also comes with a Rogers Cellular Communicator for connecting the system to the 3G Rogers Cellular Network in Canada. The 2GIG GC3 System benefits greatly from cellular monitoring because of its excellent reliability and generally fast speeds. The communicator will also allow the system to connect with the Alarm.com interactive service. A user can access this service at any time to arm and disarm their system, control Z-Wave smart home devices, check the current status of security sensors and more. The service can be accessed through a web browser or remotely using the Alarm.com Mobile App.

Reviews
Discontinued System Kit
Submitted on 12/30/2020 Alarm Grid

The 2GIG GC3PK10-3G-R is a discontinued security system kit from Alarm Grid. It included a 2GIG GC3 System, ten (10) door and window sensors, one (1) motion detection sensor, a Honeywell LT-Cable, and a Rogers 3G Communicator. The good thing about this kit is that it allowed for dual-path connectivity, as the GC3 has built-in WIFI, and the Rogers 3G Communicator provided important cellular backup. But this kit is no longer recommended, as the Rogers 3G Communicator can no longer be activated for monitoring service as a result of the impending 3G sunset. And once the Rogers 3G Network is shut down, any previously activated communicator will stop working entirely. That is why anyone still using this system and communicator combo should upgrade to an LTE communicator as soon as possible. Also, the GC3 itself has been discontinued, so some users may prefer to upgrade to something newer like the 2GIG GC3e, or even the 2GIG Edge that is set to be released in February 2021. With this in mind, we only give the 2GIG GC3PK10-3G-R a 3-Star rating.

There are some positive aspects regarding the 2GIG GC3PK10-3G-R. The system and sensors have a great build-quality. The kit was dual-path, though you can no longer activate the cellular communicator. It supported Alarm.com, which was great for controlling the system remotely. And the GC3 has built-in Z-Wave Plus so that you can set up an automation network around the system. But the downsides should not be ignored here. The kit is discontinued. The communicator can no longer be activated. And the communicator will stop working entire once the Rogers 3G Network is shut down. While this was once a good option for users in Canada, we can no longer recommend the 2GIG GC3PK10-3G-R. That is why we rate this product 3 Stars.

Good: Good Build Quality, Dual-Path, Alarm.com, Z-Wave Plus

Bad: Discontinued, Communicator Cannot Be Activated, Communicator Will Stop Working Soon

Bottom Line: 3 Stars
