2GIG GC3: Changing the Master Code

2GIG GC3: Changing the Master Code


Hi DIYers. This is Frank at Alarm Grid. We’re back in the
Alarm Grid video lab working on the 2GIG GC3 panel. This is the newest of 2GIG’s
Go!Control self-contained wireless systems. They are supported
on alarm.com, which is a new and greatly improved
interactive server that hosts cellular communications
and uses the alarm.com app. So today, we’ll be
working on showing you how to change your
master user code. The default master code
out-of-the-box when you first hook up your system is 1111. If you want to change
that, which we always recommend changing
that first, I’ll show you how to do
that in a moment. The installer code
and master code can be confused
sometimes, especially as a do-it-yourselfer where
your first interaction with the system might be
going into programming, using that default 1561. So we have another video for
that, which you can check out on our channel. But for today, we’re
going to show you how to change the master code. So we’ll start by going
into System Settings. I will enter the master
code, which is 1111. We have Users here on the top
left, and then Master Code. So we can click the
little pencil icon on the right for edit. And we can change the code
here by clicking the pencil on the right. It’ll say enter a code
for the master user. So for today’s purposes,
I’ll just set it to 1234. I’d recommend doing something
a little bit more secure than that. So you can enter that code. Hit Next. And it’s going to ask
you to confirm it, so you’ll have to
enter this twice. We’ll do 1234. That would avoid any issues
of accidentally putting the wrong code. You can actually edit
names here as well. So if you wanted to
name the master maybe as you as the master user, or
you can just keep it as Master. You can always rename these
things from alarm.com as well. So we’ll just keep it on Master
User for now and then back out. You’ll see now on
the user’s screen, it’ll show the
master user and 1234. We can show you how to add
other users in the future just by hitting plus Add
User there on the top right. And you can add
other sub-users so that you can track who’s
arming and disarming when. But for today’s purpose, we’ll
just back out all the way to the Home screen. We’re back at the Home screen. That’s how you would
change the master user code on the 2GIG GC3. If you have any other questions
regarding changing user codes on the Go!Control
GC3, you can email us at [email protected] And please subscribe
to our channel.
