Way to go, Go!Control


2GIG’s Go!Control panel won a high honor this month—it was named 2011 Security Product of the Year by the TechHome Division of the Consumer Electronics Association, according to 2GIG Technologies.

The all-in-one security and home automation system with touch screen interface developed by 2GIG, the Carlsbad, Calif.-based developer of home security and related systems, was honored at CEA’s TechHome Mark of Excellence Awards on March 18, according to a company press release.

“This is a huge honor,” Lance Dean, co-founder of 2GIG Technologies, said in a statement in the release. “This recognition by the consumer electronics industry’s most important association validates that we have succeeded in making the most user-friendly, feature-rich home automation and security system on the market.”

The Mark of Excellence Awards program honors the best in home electronics products, services, and installed technology. Each year, manufacturers, distributors, and systems integrators enter the contest, which is judged by independent experts within the industry, according to the release. Winners were announced this year at the Mark of Excellence Awards Presentation at the EHX Electronic House Expo (EHX) spring event in Orlando, Fla. at the Orange County Convention Center.
