The Panel Debate

Here comes the ultimate showdown between Qolsys vs 2Gig’s flagship panels. Technology continues to advance and improve. With that in mind, the newer IQ Panel 2 is now taking over the 2GIG GC2 Panel. At first glance, it appears that the 2GIG GC2 has similar features. They both function well with home security systems. They both interact well with your virtual home assistants and your smart devices. So, other than a much bigger display screen, what are the differences?

Although the 2GIG GC2 has cellular connectivity capability, it requires a separate purchase of a cellular communicator. Another important difference is that the IQ Panel 2 uses encrypted security sensors, whereas the GC2 does not have these. Another important added feature to the IQ Panel 2 is the built-in camera. This camera takes a picture when it is disarmed and it is sent to your smartphone. The IQ Panel 2 allows more user codes to be programmed than the GC2 also. So all in all when it comes to Qolsys vs 2Gig we declare Qolsys as the winner.
