  1. Hey, I'm not doubting that this new 2gig panel has come a long way since the first and that there are some cool features. But a lot of everything they claim to have done first i have already seen Qolsys have. Apps/icons/intuitive/touch arming/7" screen same resolution (resistive) etc etc… why would i switch from my Qolsys panel to this GC3? Can this do software updates over wifi as well?

  2. Security systems need to get onboard with Apple HomeKit. As a security system, this is a nice panel. For home automation, HomeKit is MUCH better. I don't need to pull up an app or get up and touch the panel to trigger a scene. You simply say, "hey Siri, goodnight," and the scene is triggered. Much easy to trigger a "coming home scene" from issuing the voice command to your Apple Watch than finding an app while you're driving.
    What I WOULD like is a security system that arms itself with the "good night" scene (voice command) from my iPhone. Just makes much more sense when I'm already in bed. I don't want to launch an app or get out of bed and walk up to a touch panel to trigger a scene.
