2GiG originated from a pair of Honeywell employees who wanted to buck the mainstream. They were tired of hearing from the corporate powers-that-be that Honeywell shouldn’t be competing against “2 guys in a garage” type alarm manufacturers. They ventured out, and started a product line that has taken the alarm industry by storm. Their products have a vast range of devices, and include a very appealing touch-screen in their Go Control Panel. Soon after they were able to implement their panels in many dealer programs, they were purchased by Linear.
