2GIG by Linear, a leading developer of security and home automation systems, and Telguard, a provider of cellular alarm communications and interactive services, together announce that Telguard's HomeControl interactive solution for Go!Control panels is now available to security dealers.
Fully integrated with the 2GIG Go!Control wireless panel, HomeControl gives users the ability to remotely arm and disarm their security system, and offers Z-Wave control and integrated video surveillance. For added security, HomeControl offers the ability to tie into all the security panel's events, such as motion detectors and door sensor information.
"Security dealers were asking for interactive services with our 2GIG by Linear Go!Control panel. Telguard, with over 25 years of experience in the security industry, was the ideal partner to work with in order to effectively and quickly respond to their needs," said Duane Paulson, SVP of product and market development, Linear. "We've already sold well over a million 2GIG Go!Control panels and the addition of HomeControl gives dealers an advanced interactive solution they can offer to customers at an excellent value."
Telguard's HomeControl is offered in three easy to understand service levels: Connect Interact and Control. The Connect plan provides all life safety signalling and panel uploading. The Interact plan includes full interactive capabilities for a price that is competitive with other basic arm and disarms solutions. The Control plan allows the inclusion of Z-Wave devices. The optional View service, using the new TGHC Camera, can be added to either the Interact or Control plans. Additionally, two-way voice can be added to all three base plans.
The HomeControl mobile app matches the sophistication and style users expect to see on their iPhone or Android devices. HomeControl's online portal allows customers to quickly and easily enter account information, contacts, and authorised users while managing their system seamlessly from anywhere, using any standard web browser.
"At Telguard we share 2GIG by Linear's commitment to delivering the best quality solutions and services. Collaborating with 2GIG, a premier security system provider, ensures that HomeControl reaches the widest number of households at an affordable price," said Shawn Welsh, VP of Marketing and Business Development, Telular. "Along with the availability of HomeControl, we are also excited to announce the expansion of our Telguard Advantage Program, providing security dealers with deeper volume discounts than ever before."
