Hello everyone, I currently have GC3 and I’m with local company for monitoring. My contract is over and I’m going to make a move on to Surety. I had my GC3 panel replaced 3 times through its life spend as it always had some kind a zwave problems. So before i switch i will like people opinions on new iq2 panels as i’m debating on purchasing. in your opinion what panel is better and works better?
I have about 20 zwave devices, including 3 thermostats, 4 temp sensors, multiple light switches and power metering devices, I also have all honeywell sensors about 40 total including window/door contact, water pump sensors, fire and carbon detectors. So if i go with iq2 I will require a panel with correct board to work with them.
In a pass I did not go with original IQ1 as i heard a lot of complains about panel not working so good and having issues.
As it comes to gc3 not sure if this is just me and zwave problems or that is just something people will run in to.
My latest is that two LED ring goes off after a while and don’y stay on like my previous gc3 did. from what i understand that when ready to arm green will always be on until one of the sensors ore open. and red when system is arm. that is what i remember from previous panel. now at times i will walk to to the panel and found no ring on just off.
Any info will be appreciated.
