I have an existing Ademco Panel with Internet & Cellular connectivity with my provider. I found out about the 2GIG system and am planning on upgrading to that. I had asked a couple of questions and was told it’s best to share with others so that’s what I am doing. I wanted at start with the 2GIG GO Panel with AT&T Cellular with one additional panel. I haven’d had two monitoring but I thought it was pretty good. I found out the additional panels outside of the main panel will not do the two way monitoring which I hope will be available in the future. If you have additional panels I would have hoped they all would do what the main panel does. I am not sure if there are other things they don’t do yet.
I am starting with:
2GIG Go!Control Touch Screen Wireless Control Panel (2GIG-CNTRL2-345)
2GIG TS1 Wireless Secondary Touch Screen Keypad (2GIG-TS1-E)
I was old in order to make the TS1 I would also have to purchase:
2GIG 900 MHz Transceiver (2GIG-XCVR2-345).
I have Ademco Wirless 5881 Wireless Receivers that is used to receive signals from all of my motion detectors. Does anyone know if the 2GIG can talk to that to toe 5881 or if I will have to replace all of my 58xx devices right away?
I have (2) doors, (3) smoke detectors, 6 motion detectors, (1) carbon monoxide device now and it would be great if I didn’t have to replace all of the right away.
Also I have Z-wave. I understand that the 2G can talk to Z-Wave devices. Right now I use a VeraLite that controls a few devices including a thermostat. Does anyone know if I can just delete the pairing of the existing Z-Wave devices and then pair them up with the 2GIG; if that would be the way to go?
Also it’s my understanding that if you want to pair ZWAVE devices that it might be best to do it through the Alarm.Com’s web site?
This looks like a pretty cool Alarm System and I am anxious to get started with it.
I apologize for so many questions in advance.
