For dealers, the encrypted sensors will only communicate with an eSeries panel, which prevents a competitor from taking over an eSeries installation by only installing a new panel.” Glass Break Sensor Compatible encrypted 2GIG sensors include the Standard Door/Window Sensor, Motion Sensor, Glass Break Sensor, Key Fob Sensor, and Recessed D/W Sensor – with more to come in the near future. And the two new panels support all traditional 2GIG sensors and other legacy 345 sensors for easy system upgrades. “For dealers, this is a best-of-both,” said Petrucci. The new GC2e panel includes a larger, brighter 5” capacitive touch screen, while the GC3e features a 7” touchscreen. Both panels have best-in-class 2-way audio and front-firing speakers for exceptional audio performance. Additionally, the new GC3e panel exclusively includes the 2GIG Smart Areas feature, enabling security partitioning that makes it easier than ever to set up independently protected areas in homes. Simplifying Installation Smart Areas delivers greater personalisation and functionality for the end user" Smart Areas delivers greater personalization and functionality for the end user, while simplifying installation for the dealer. “Think of it as four systems for the price of one,” said Petrucci. "The GC3e panel also includes on-board demo and promo videos that keep users in-the-know and a screen saver mode with slideshows that displays homeowners’ favorite images when alerts and alarms are cleared.” “We have taken our proven GC2 and GC3 panels and added essential features and upgrades to enhance peace-of-mind for the homeowner,” Petrucci concluded, “and we are giving dealers an exceptional new product line to help them win and retain more business.”

Security and Safety Things (SAST) - A Bosch IoT startup, hosts the first-ever live hackathon at ISC West on the 10th and 11th of April in the Sands Expo Center, Las Vegas. The two-day event featured three teams racing against the clock to create the most deployable application for an American football stadium using the new Security and Safety things system, SAST OS (Operating system). Teams were provided with Google pixel phones, reference cameras and appropriate APIs and development kits, including a video API, control API and a web server API. From there, they were tasked with developing creative solutions that would inspire new use cases and generate business insights, through the use of SAST OS. Software Development Environment Submissions were reviewed by Jim Coleman, Convergint; Staffan Grundström, Securitas; and Markus Berger-de León, Partner McKinsey & Company. The goal of the challenge was to develop apps, but also to show the industry how easy apps and solutions can be developed using SAST OS. Furthermore, the hackathon provided valuable feedback that will impact future development of SAST OS and the software development environment. SAST believes that the ecosystems and framework they have created will soon be a powerful standard for developers, integrators and hardware manufacturers alike. The hackathon showcased the ease of use of the system overall, and will act as a starting point for future innovations / developments.
