Nortek Control Launches New ‘2GIG EDGE’ Security and Automation Panel
Nortek Control launched the 2GIG EDGE Security and Automation Panel integrated with artificial intelligence (AI) and edge analytics; it uses facial recognition for “touchless” disarming and arming of alarms. Engineered using edge analytics, it includes compatibility with live feed ONVIF cameras to the 2GIG EDGE panel allowing homeowners to use existing ONVIF devices for their surveillance needs; all built on a foundation of security and data privacy. Upgraded with a new intuitive user interface, the 2GIG EDGE panel not only supports encrypted sensors and devices but now provides the most secure way to disarm a system with hands-free convenience.
The 2GIG EDGE Security and Automation Panel is housed in a thinner cabinet and offers a higher resolution edge-to-edge glass screen that eliminates plastic bezels; and it’s five times brighter and twice as large. Other upgrades include dual microphones with noise and echo cancellation and front firing speakers that enable two-way voice communication. Additional features include a built-in radio and wi-fi communications, camera and glass break sensor.
Nortek Control developed the 2GIG EDGE Security and Automation Panel to be the center of a smart home, making it compatible with a broad array of home technologies and products. The panel allows users to connect to cameras, doorbell cameras and directly view video in real time from up to eight different camera feeds. Increasing security and data privacy, encrypted sensors and devices help eliminate system hacks and prevent account take-overs. Plus, integrators are able to customize the panel to a homeowner’s personal needs with controls, rules, scenes, notifications and Smart Areas zone partitioning.
