2GIG’s “sleek” panel is “elegant,” The WSJ says

Monday, February 27, 2012

The Wall Street Journal just gave a nice nod to 2GIG, touting the 2GIG Alarm Kit in a recent technology article.

In the piece entitled, “Safe at Home,” which is about easy-to-install, tech-friendly security systems and written by Michael Hsu, the WSJ singles out 2GIG’s alarm system in this way:

You can't judge an alarm system by how it looks, but the 2GIG Alarm Kit's control panel is so much more elegant than any other security solution out there, it's hard to justify devoting the wall space to anything else. Instead of a clunky keypad that makes you feel like you're working the midnight shift at a convenience store, the 2GIG control panel is a sleek white box with a color touchscreen.

And Hsu says it’s easy to install and he also noted other features he likes about the product of 2GIG, a Carlsbad, Calif.-based home security systems developer, such as:


The best part about 2GIG is how it integrates with the rest of your house. By adding compatible devices, like a thermostat and lamp module, you can have the system lower the heat and turn lights on or off when you arm the system.


According to Wikipedia, the WSJ is the largest newspaper in the United States, with a circulation of 2.1 million copies (including 400,000 online paid subscriptions) in 2010. That's a lot of potential security customers!
