Wi-Fi Setup

If you want to use Wi-Fi with a 2GIG GC2 panel, you will need a couple of add-ons. You will need the 2GIG Go!Bridge module, which connects with your IP router through a hardwired ethernet connection. You will also need a 2GIG XCVR-345 module, which allows the GC2 Panel to communicate with the Go!Bridge.

Because this requires additional equipment, a cellular module is recommended for cellular only communication.
