Nortek Control has launched the 2GIG EDGE Security and Automation Panel, featuring disruptive tech like artificial intelligence (AI), edge analytics, and the industry’s first secure face recognition touchless disarm.
By engineering the panel using edge analytics and technology built right into the panel, the homeowner’s biometric data stays secure by saving it only on the panel. Once homeowner data is deleted, it is deleted forever.

Another industry first includes 100-percent compatibility with live feed of ONVIF cameras to the 2GIG EDGE panel. This allows homeowners to use existing ONVIF devices for their surveillance needs – all built on a foundation of security and data privacy.
More Secure Way to Disarm a System
Upgraded with a new intuitive user interface in a more powerful and secure platform, 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 — no phones to carry or codes to remember.
The 2GIG EDGE Security and Automation Panel is housed in a modern, thinner, brighter design and offers a higher resolution edge-to-edge glass screen that eliminates plastic bezels.
Other upgrades include dual microphones with noise and echo cancellation and front firing speakers that enable two-way voice communication for best-in-class audio quality. Additional features include a built-in radio and Wi-Fi communications, camera, and glass break sensor.
Its 1.6 Gigahertz (GHz) quad-core processor combined with its built-in edge analytics to make it one of the fastest panels on the market and four times faster and more powerful than previous-generation 2GIG panels.
“Our 2GIG EDGE panel is born from security and not built from a tablet design. It provides the elevated capabilities consumers expect while delivering the most secure experience consumers have been wanting,” said Bruce Mungiguerra, senior vice president of global sales and marketing at Nortek Control.
2GIG EDGE at the Center of a Smart Home
Nortek Control developed the 2GIG EDGE Security and Automation Panel to be the center of today’s smart home making it compatible with a broad array of home technologies and products.
The panel allows users to seamlessly connect to cameras, doorbell cameras, and directly view video in real time from up to eight different camera feeds. Further 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.
