Recall Details

Description:

The GSM radio module in the Go!Control Panel enables wireless communication between the home security system and alarm monitoring companies. The Go!Control panels are 6-inches high and 8.5-inches wide and are made of white plastic. The front of the control panel has a color touch screen display, a speaker and "emergency" and "home" buttons. A home security company name may also appear on the front of the panel. The recalled radio modules are a component used inside the Go!Control panels. A professional home security system installer can identify the recalled module. Consumers cannot identify the module safely.

Remedy:

2GIG has directed home security companies to contact consumers, who will receive a free, installed replacement module. If you have not been contacted and have a question about whether your home security system contains the recalled module, contact your home security company or 2GIG. Consumers should not try to disconnect or disable the recalled product.

Incidents/Injuries:

The company is aware of 22 reports of the product overheating, including three reports of minor smoke, heat or fire damage to the wall where the control panel was mounted. There have been no reports of injuries.

Sold At
GIG sold the GSM radio modules to home security companies and security system equipment distributors nationwide and in Canada between December 2010 and October 2011 for use in Go!Control Panels.
