Nortek Security & Control Unveils 2GIG Vario Hybrid Security System
NORTEK Security & Control has announced its new 2GIG Vario Hybrid Security System, comprising a control panel with on-board hardwire inputs and outputs, which can add 2GIG’s existing wireless solutions.
Designed to operate within the confines of existing systems, 2GIG Vario is fully compatible with a number of current automation and access control systems, including the Linear e3 platform. The panel’s extensive zone typing enables cross-system actions and commands and makes the entire system more robust, according to the company.
Through Vario’s programmable outputs, systems that traditionally worked together as separate structures, such as security and access control, can be bonded together. This unification enables events taking place in separate systems, such as an access control or gating, to trigger the Vario system to perform additional actions for a more holistic experience.
Vario has multiple keypad styles, a variety of zone and output expanders, two options for power supply expansion, 2-way voice compatibility, two distinct receiver options, plus a wide variety of tamper-protected enclosures. Each device within the Vario line can be combined to create a personalized security system that provides the ideal coverage, size and price for any project.
Vario supports the entire 2GIG wireless sensor line, enhancing its flexibility by enabling additions of devices like the 2GIG glass-break sensor or 2GIG flood, temperature sensor and wireless door/window sensor.
2GIG is distributed locally by Q Security Systems. ♦
