    Will the current 2 gig sensors and equipment work with the GC3 ? I want to install my own 2gig system but need it before November . My thought is to install and just replace the panel in November . Will this work ?

    Yes all the Sensors and Z-Wave devices will work and be Cross Compatible between the GC2 and the GC3, The Cell Module will not be, The good news is the GC3 will have WiFi on-board so you will not need to purchase the Go Bridge for Broadband communications **NOTE** you will still need an active account for the broadband communications

    Do you have any information about an API? Like a REST interface or ability to push information to another home Automation controller?

  5. #5
    Nothing yet on API, Nortek does own ÉLAN so integration with their products may be possible in the future and if so maybe they will open up to others as well.....if market proves the value as a standalone home automation/security platform it may stay locked down though...what are some other thoughts on this?

    Thanks, that's a bummer. I've been holding off pulling the trigger on an alarm system to see what the GC3 had to offer. In my opinion, since it will not be able to control everything, it needs to have some access to a full blown home automation system like the ISY994i. If there is no integration with other systems, like Insteon, Harmony Hub, Amazon Echo, IFTTT, just to name a few, then we need a way to pull all of those together. The ISY has the ability to directly interface with an ELK system, and thru a helper program, the DSC and Honeywell panels. I really wanted to use a GC3, but with no API, I will now have to decide between the others.

    I had a look at the Z-Wave version on a Beta GC3 and it showed Z-Wave Version 4.05 Build Version 2030 Firmware Version 0.26.22

    This may not be the final version but wanted the thread
