2GIG’s approach of extending beyond conventional security and the features the system provides the dealer and end user are exciting
Melville, NY (Vocus) March 19, 2010
2GIG Technologies announced today that it has formalized a distribution agreement with Security General International (SGI). As part of the agreement, SGI will carry the full 2GIG product line including the state-of-the-art security and home management panels and peripherals.
2GIG’s security system panel is named Go!Control – the first self-contained, all-in-one security and home management system complete with color LCD touch screen. Other features of the system include a built-in GSM radio enabling 2-way voice calls over cellular, and an embedded Z-Wave module that transforms the panel into a home automation control device. As a result, features such as HVAC, lighting and appliance control are seamlessly integrated with 2GIG’s security system to deliver convenience and cost savings to customers.
“The 2GIG product is truly unique and innovative,” said Matthew Green, VP of Sales for SGI. “SGI is excited to be named a distribution partner for a product that delivers real value on a daily basis to the homeowners that select it.”
“We’re thrilled to formalize a partnership with SGI to distribute our Go!Control security panel,” said Lance Dean, 2GIG Technologies Co-Founder. “SGI has great market coverage and a focus on providing quality product offerings and service. We are excited to make SGI our first distribution partner.”
As part of the SGI agreement, one of the first independent dealers to commit to the 2GIG product offerings is Safeguard Security, a leading security and communications provider throughout Arizona and New Mexico. 2GIG Technologies will be announcing agreements with additional distributors, major dealers and dealer programs in the near future.
“2GIG’s approach of extending beyond conventional security and the features the system provides the dealer and end user are exciting,” said John Jennings, CEO of Safeguard. “Add on its slick design and you have a product we believe people are really going to want.”
Established in 1984, Security General International, Ltd has become one of the nation’s largest independent security, life safety and data communications distributors in the U.S. SGI takes pride in having a well-trained and educated staff as well as providing unrivaled customer service and on time delivery.
