Melville, New York (Vocus/PRWEB ) June 15, 2010 — 2GIG Technologies today announced that its revolutionary home security and automation system has now been installed in over 60,000 homes in North America. Additionally, 2GIG formalized a distribution agreement with eDist. As part of the agreement, eDist will carry the full 2GIG product line and will have product available to dealers by July 1, 2010.

“We are excited about eDist’s decision to join the growing list of partners that offer and distribute our exciting new security and automation system,” said Todd Santiago, President of 2GIG Technologies. “eDist is a technology leader in the industry, and we look forward to working with them and their affiliates to make the Go!Control product and interactive services available to their customers.”

2GIG’s security 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 radio 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 technological advancements of this product make this partnership a natural addition to eDist’s line of state-of-the-art equipment. Currently, there is nothing else like it in the industry,” said Nick Scarane, Executive Vice President of eDist. “It is competitively priced, and offers dealers incredible ease of installation. There is big potential for dealers here — it’s the first time in a long while a product like this has come along to help their bottom line.”
