SMF - Just Installed!
I am very interested in this system, but am frustrated and curious as well. I like the look of the system, and the room for future growth built into it. That said, is it true that there is only one siren, it is only 85dB, and it is located in the main unit? I do not see any siren accessories listed anywhere. That seems like a big negative.
Furthermore, while the control panel seems state-of-the-art, the keypad accessory looks awful and hardly useful. Can I add additional control panels throughout the house? Which, of course, leads me to the next point:The all-in-one design is annoying in my opinion as you cannot keep the base unit separate and secure from potential intruders. Furthermore, the two-way audio is not helpful if I am trapped on the other side of my house when the monitoring station is speaking through the control panel downstairs.
This system would be approaching awesome if (in my opinion and in my case):* they offered additional sirens, perhaps including both indoor and outdoor models with strobe functionality.* They allowed additional control panels to be placed in different areas of the house for redundancy and convenience (which I admit, they might. I don't know and have not been able to get an answer from them yet)* They offered recessed window and door contacts like the Ion Security Plunger and Micra.
Any thoughts or clarifications would be appreciated. I am a guy shopping for a new system who really loves the Alexor but wishes he could also have the features of the 2GIG/Alarm.com set-up. Lastly, I am also quick to admit that I am new to this stuff. Is one able to mix and match certain accessories? MIght I be able to use an external siren and strobe, or recessed window sensor, etc. with the 2GIG Go! even though they do not offer it themselves? That would be great news!
hello, can anyone tell me how to get my 2gig control panel to dial out, it keeps saying Connection Failure, PDP denied. thanks.
I just bought a system as well. Want to hardwire the power rather than having a plug dangling into a socket. Has anyone done a hardwire power connection and if so, can you offer instructions to a first time installer. thx
