| Posted 4.04.2017 | Lifestyle, Press Release, Product Release
Also Expands Feature Support On Flagship 2GIG® GC3 Security + Home Control System
Carlsbad, CA – April 5, 2017 – Nortek Security & Control LLC (NSC) a leader in the security, home control, and wellness technology markets, introduced the 2GIG Rely Security System. Rely is the industry’s smallest self-contained, aesthetically pleasing, Do-it-Yourself Security System. Now, DIYers, renters, 2nd homeowners and no-contract consumers can have security with style. They can secure their homes with a sleek and discrete system that works with their home décor, window decorations, as well as door and window operation, unlike over-sized competitor offerings.
NSC’s Rely is part of the 2GIG family of security and home automation systems that more than three million customers trust countless times of day. Rely will be sold and supported by a network of security dealers and monitoring service providers with extensive national, regional and local presence in numerous communities – an option not available from Internet-only vendors. Additionally, Rely is easy to install and re-install, making it a system that can move with the consumer from home to home. Rely expands the market to include younger and style-conscious consumers living in apartments, as well as established homeowners and vacation property owners looking for solid security system for their investment.
“Every day our dealers meet prospective customers who don’t fit the traditional mold, whether its highly mobile lifestyles or overall system and monitoring expense; they still want stylish and discrete security, backed by local dealers and professional monitoring,” said Dan Geiger, Sr. VP of Sales for NSC. “Rely gives our dealer and service provider partners a solution easy enough for anyone to purchase and install that includes a sleek keypad and proven 2GIG sensors that don’t look like the circa-90’s jumbo wireless sensors they may see from other vendors.”
Rely includes a simple to use app, which gives the end-user the ability to see status and remotely arm/disarm the system. The app was developed to easily walk the consumer through system installation with embedded instructional videos, after a Security Dealer programs the system by scanning QR codes. The Rely App also offers customizable event notifications.
NSC also announced enhancements to the flagship 2GIG GC3 all-in-one security and home automation EZ Touch system. Powered by firmware release 3.0.2, the GC3 now supports four additional keypads, user-replaceable LTE cell radios, and the new 2GIG SP-2, a tablet-based secondary keypad. This new release also supports additional Z-Wave devices, like the popular GoControl® Garage Door Controller, as well as Yale® and Schlage® door locks.
In May, NSC expects to release GC3 firmware version 3.1 with support for both the SP-2, announced above, and the new SP-1, a secondary touch screen that mirrors virtually all the GC3 main panel security and automation capabilities. Firmware version 3.1 also supports full broadband connectivity via WiFi or Ethernet, French language support, as well as additional Z-Wave and security sensor devices.
“With these releases and new touch screen options, the GC3 offers a superset of features, and is significantly easier to install than its predecessor. Moreover, the GC3 is powerful enough to accommodate future upgrades,” said Robert Beliles, NSC Sr. VP of Marketing and Product Management. “The introduction of the sleek DIY Rely system and the GC3 enhancements further demonstrate NSC’s commitment to making security and home automation easier for dealers and users.”
The Rely system is expected to ship in late May. The GC3 system is available now with firmware version 3.0.2. Firmware version 3.1 as well as the SP-1 and the SP-2 secondary touch screens will be available in May. These and many more products will be on display in a model home environment at NSC’s ISC West Booth #20031 from April 5-7 in Las Vegas.
