2GIG SMART AREAS – A FRESH LOOK AT PARTITIONING
2GIG Smart Areas represents a new approach to partitioning, addressing the pain points of installers and end users with a new way of setting up and using partitions. With 2GIG Smart Areas, the GC3 becomes the first all-in-one wireless security panel in the market to enable partitioning without requiring add-on modules.
For installers, the GC3 streamlines the setup process. Device enrollments have been simplified, with all parameters displayed on the screen for quick scanning, saving time.
For end users, 2GIG Smart Areas security system is a one-touch solution. Users can access any partition/smart area with appropriate authorization. ‘Arm/Disarm’ and ‘Emergency/Panic’ functions can be accessed quickly. From any menu, tapping the ‘Home’ button immediately returns to the ‘Arm/Disarm’ screen. Past partitioning examples required users to swipe from screen to screen.
The simplified user interface reduces confusion and frustration for users who may not interact with their security system every day. With the common tasks upfront, it’s easy to select without having to memorize. Unique sound options for each smart area have been added for further ease of use, as they will quickly alert the user to possible issues in the zones that match that unique sound.
