2GIG Technologies Adds One of the Nation’s Fastest and Largest National Dealer Programs to Growing Customer Base

MELVILLE, New York–(BUSINESS WIRE)–2GIG Technologies announced today that Monitronics International has approved the use of its Go!Control home security and management system. As part of the agreement, Monitronics and its base of dealers will now have access to the fastest growing line of security products in the industry.

“With the growing demand for interactive services, the Go!Control panel provides another platform to provide these exciting features to our customers”

“We are thrilled with Monitronics’ recent approval of our equipment,” said Lance Dean, co-founder of 2GIG Technologies. “Monitronics is an industry leader and a fantastic partner for us. We are looking forward to working with them and their dealer base to expand the interactive features available to their customers.”

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.
