If you have a 2GIG GC3 wireless security system you are probably wondering how you can get alarm monitoring services?
If you have an existing 2GIG GC3 system from a previous company and they have changed your installer code by simply getting a new 2gig cellular module we can remotely change the installer code once we have activated the new module. This holds true as long as the previous company hasn't locked out question 45 within the system programming.
2GIG GC3 Alarm Monitoring Service Options:
1) 2GIG GC3 DIY Alarm Monitoring Services: DIY Monitoring is where the customer gets assigned a username and login for the Alarm.com application which can be downloaded in the Apple App Store or the Google Play store for Android phones. Once the end-user has access to the app they will be able to set up text/email notifications in the event the alarm is triggered. With the DIY monitoring plan, end-users are responsible for contacting their local police, fire or medical services for dispatching. With Alarm.com DIY monitoring end-users will still be able to add advanced features such as Z-wave home automation control, image sensor control and viewing of Alarm.com compatible IP cameras as long as they have a compatible 2GIG GC3 cellular alarm communicator.
2) 2GIG Pro Alarm Monitoring Services: The only difference between DIY and PRO 2GIG monitoring services is that with professional central station monitoring end-users will enjoy the fact that their alarm signals will be monitored by our central alarm monitoring station. In the event there is a triggered alarm signal that will be sent to our receivers, then reach out to the customer's emergency contact list that they have provided and if nobody answers or gives a wrong false alarm password we will dispatch the exact authorities to your location.
