We are thrilled to announce the 2GIG EDGE™ security and automation panel, a game-changing security system that combines touchless, secure biometric face recognition with revolutionary edge analytics and artificial intelligence. The result is a pro-install panel that blazes new trails in user convenience, privacy, and total home protection.

The 2GIG EDGE panel offers a sleeker, slimmer panel, enhanced by fast face recognition as well as stringent data privacy protection and broad camera compatibility.

Unpacking the Key Features of the 2GIG EDGE Panel

The 2GIG EDGE panel is as innovative as it is reliable. Here’s what customers can expect:

Industry-first Touchless Face Recognition

2GIG EDGE system users can take advantage of fast and secure biometric disarm via face recognition. Without touching any buttons on the panel itself, a customer can reliably disarm it, with the quad-core processor and anti-spoofing technology ensuring the smoothest and safest experience each time. You no longer need to remember user codes; the panel uniquely identifies you (the customer) and only you to grant access. 

As the industry’s first solution with face recognition disarming, the 2GIG EDGE system brings to home security panels the same level of convenience that consumers already expect from their other biometrics-equipped devices. Setup is also straightforward, and the user interface is intuitive, and easy to navigate and view touchless disarm help video on the 2GIG EDGE panel’s large, vibrant display.

Edge Processing for Data Privacy

Accordingly, customers can be confident that their sensitive biometric information won’t be exposed to cyberattacks that target cloud infrastructure, and that it isn’t being retained and shared with others for marketing and targeted advertising purposes.

Live View Camera Compatibility

The Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) is the global standard for how video surveillance products communicate over an IP Network. ONVIF ensures IP Cameras from hundreds of manufacturers  interoperate with other solutions on your IP network, including home security panels.

Another industry first, the 2GIG EDGE panel makes it easy for end-users to connect any ONVIF-compatible cameras (e.g., doorbell cameras) that they already have installed or plan to add. The panel provides a consolidated view of the live feeds from connected ONVIF devices. Up to eight feeds can be connected, and four may be streamed simultaneously, directly on the 2GIG EDGE panel.

The 2GIG EDGE panel also provides Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity, dual speakers and microphones with noise cancellation, and a suite of integrator-customizable home automation functions, all housed in a small and unobtrusive design.
