2GIG GCCDMV-A - Alarm.com Verizon Go!Control Cell Comm Reviews
Submitted on 12/05/2019 Alarm Grid
The 2GIG GCCDMV-A is a Verizon CDMA Communicator for the 2GIG Go!Control GC2 Security System. This is a discontinued communicator that can no longer be activated for monitoring service. If you have one that is currently operational, then it will continue to work until Verizon shuts down their CDMA network. Once this happens this communicator can no longer be used in any manner. If you are currently using this communicator, then it is important that you upgrade to an LTE module as soon as you can. The go-to Verizon LTE module is the 2GIG LTEV1-A-GC2. As far as rating, the 2GIG GCCDMV-A, we give it 4 Stars, as it still works fine for the time being if it is already activated. But you really should switch to an LTE unit sooner rather than later.
If you have a 2GIG GCCCDMV-A Communicator that is already installed and activated then there is still quite a bit to like about it. You can use the module for reliable monitoring service across the Verizon CDMA Cellular Network. Cellular monitoring is known for its excellent reliability, and the 2GIG GCCDMV-A is no exception, provided that you have adequate cellular signals in your area. If you have this communicator activated with a compatible monitoring plan, then you can use Alarm.com with your GC2 System. This is a convenient platform for arming and disarming, checking current status, controlling Z-Wave devices, and more.
The downsides to the 2GIG GCCDMV-A are fairly obvious. The communicator is discontinued, and it can no longer be activated. If you are still using this communicator, then you are on a time-crunch. It will continue to work until Verizon shuts down their CDMA Network. As a result, upgrading sooner rather than later is advised. All things considered, we give this communicator a 4 Star rating. If you are currently using one, please understand that it only has a very limited product life remaining.
Good: Reliable Monitoing, Alarm.com Access
Bad: Can No Longer Be Activated, CDMA Network Being Shut Down
Bottom Line: 4 Stars
