The 2GIG Edge with Verizon LTE offers top-of-the-line security and protection for any home or business. This alarm system comes jam-packed with all the resources and tools that you need for protection and making your life more convenient. You can't go wrong with this sleek and modern panel!
The 2GIG Edge System is operated with a 7-inch LCD touchscreen that is sure to turn heads when seen in your home or office. Those who are new to security systems may have a short adjustment period as they learn the basics of system operation, but most users are off and programming the system with ease once they get the hang of it. Whether you are a long-time user of alarm systems, or this is your very first system, you should have a great experience in setting up and using your 2GIG Edge Alarm Panel. You will also appreciate the flexibility and freedom that comes with four (4) Smart Area Partitions that have returned from the 2GIG GC3, as well as the ability to store up to 100 unique user codes on the system.
You can program up to 100 wireless zones on the 2GIG Edge Security System. Almost all users will find this to be sufficient. In fact, you shouldn't even come close to using this many zones unless you have a very large property. There are a few different types of wireless sensors you can use with the 2GIG Edge. For encrypted sensors, there is the lineup of 2GIG eSeries Sensors that were originally built for use with the 2GIG GC2e and 2GIG GC3e. You can also use non-encrypted 345 MHz sensors, such as those from the 2GIG 345 MHz Series and the Honeywell 5800 Series. There is speculation that 2GIG may release a new sensor lineup, exclusively for use with the 2GIG Edge, but this been neither confirmed nor denied.
To get the 2GIG Edge monitored, you must connect it with the Alarm.com servers. This is done using the panel's integrated Verizon LTE Communicator and its internal WIFI card. Per Alarm.com requirements, the Verizon LTE module must be activated and registered for alarm monitoring service. In other words, you cannot activate on IP (WIFI) only, and you must get a monitoring plan that includes cellular service, such as an Alarm Grid Gold or Platinum Level Plan. More information on all of our monitoring plans can be found here. Once you activate the cellular communicator, you can also configure an additional communication path through WIFI. Using both internet and cellular together is commonly referred to as "dual-path" connectivity, and it offers the best of both worlds. You will get the super-fast speeds associated with the WIFI network, along with the excellent reliability of cellular. All of our cellular plans also include internet connectivity at no extra charge. All you need is available WIFI in your home or office.
There is also a Z-Wave Plus controller module inside the 2GIG Edge that cannot be replaced. If you damage this module, then you either have to live without Z-Wave home automation or replace the panel entirely. But setting its inability to be replaced aside, this really is an incredible Z-Wave automation controller inside the 2GIG Edge. In fact, it is a Z-Wave Plus V2 700-Series Automation Controller w/ support for the Z-Wave S2 Security Protocol. This is the very first security system we've seen that utilizes Z-Wave Plus V2! Remember that only Z-Wave Plus devices that support S2 will enroll using that security protocol. Z-Wave devices that lack support for the S2 protocol will instead enroll using the S0 Protocol. There are all sorts of Z-Wave Plus Smart Home Devices you can enroll with the 2GIG Edge. This includes many lights, door locks, smart thermostats, and more!
When you enroll a Z-Wave device with the 2GIG Edge, you gain the ability to control that device locally at the 2GIG Edge System itself. You can even create smart scenes and perform them locally at the panel. This is ideal for making your life more convenient and saving money on energy expenses. However, the real excitement comes from having the 2GIG Edge System monitored and set up with Alarm.com service. This will allow you to control the system remotely from the Alarm.com Mobile App on your Android or iOS device. You can use the Alarm.com Mobile App to arm and disarm your system, check current system status, control your programmed Z-Wave home automation devices as well as include them in fully customizable smart scenes. With a monitoring plan that supports video, you can also view the live feed for Alarm.com Security Cameras, and so much more. Alarm.com also opens up the possibility for integrations with smart home voice assistants like Google Assistant, Amazon Echo, Amazon Alexa, Siri Shortcuts, and more.
And the 2GIG Edge wouldn't be complete without its own array of amazing features and functions. There are so many features that you can take advantage of. These include disarming based upon facial recognition, optional automatic Bluetooth disarming that you can set up with your smartphone, an integrated glass break detector that offers advanced audio analytics for false alarm prevention, a front panel camera used for taking disarm photos and identifying individuals, 2-way voice functionality, one-touch arming capabilities, the ability to stream certain Alarm.com Cameras right from the panel, emergency panic buttons, a wired bell output, two (2) open-collector outputs, and so much more. The system is even compatible with the 2GIG IMAGE3 Image Sensor for alarm verification purposes. The 2GIG Edge receives firmware updates over-the-air (OTA) from Alarm.com, or you can instead locally update the firmware using a USB drive.
For power, the 2GIG Edge relies primarily on a 14VDC, 1.7A transformer. You must supply your own wiring for the transformer. A Honeywell LT-Cable works great for this task, or you can use any standard alarm wiring. It is also known that 2GIG is making their own prepared cable available, which will use the SKU of 2GIG-EDG-CBL. The 2GIG Edge also uses a lithium-polymer backup battery that offers at least 24 hours of backup power at a full charge. This battery has a SKU of 2GIG-EDG-BATT. The Edge Panel has dimensions of 7.5"L x 5.625"W x 1.0D, and it weighs 1.39 lbs. Mounting hardware comes included with the system. Certifications include UL & cUL Listed, SIA CP-01 Compliant, and much more. Also note that the 2GIG Edge supports both the 2GIG CP-DESK Table Mount and Desk Stand and the 2GIG PAD1-345 Touchpad Keypad. It also has its own signature touchscreen keypad called the 2GIG Edge Remote Keypad.
