Nortek Security & Control, a leader in the security, smart home and wellness technology markets, announced the shipment of their 1 millionth Z-Wave smart home devices under its GoControl brand. Offering a wide range of products for lighting, control and security, GoControl products are consistently listed as best sellers on Amazon and are also the products of choice by many security dealers.

Nortek Security & Control has over 3 million security and home control systems installed, making them the clear category leader under their award winning 2GIG brand. GoControl products enhance many of these 2GIG installations, delivering the convenience of IoT devices to the mass market, offering solutions that are affordable, easy to install and use.

GoControl’s 1 million devices together with 2GIG’s 3 million security and automation controls make Nortek Security & Control a clear leader in the category.

According to Parks Associates, over 55 percent of installed smart door locks and garage door controls, smart smoke detectors and water leak sensors, and networked security cameras are integrated into a security system. “The security channel remains the leading channel for smart home services and related products,” said Tom Kerber, director of IoT strategy. “Nortek Security & Control’s leadership in the smart home and security channel extends beyond the 2GIG controller and includes a wide variety of accessories.”

GoControl products work with 2GIG security / control panels and other Z-Wave control hubs, allowing users to control one device, or a grouping of devices (referred to as a “scene”) from any room in the residence or from virtually anywhere via smartphone, tablet or smartwatch. Future enhancements and new solutions are expected to fuel GoControl’s continued leadership in this exciting market.
