What is the problem?

GSM radio modules used inside Go!Control Panels for home security systems can overheat and combust, resulting in a fire or burn hazard to consumers.

Instance(s) of fires, property damage have been reported.

How can I tell if I own this product?

The GSM radio module in the Go!Control Panel enables wireless communication between the home security system and alarm monitoring companies. The Go!Control panels are 6-inches high and 8.5-inches wide and are made of white plastic. The front of the control panel has a color touch screen display, a speaker and "emergency" and "home" buttons. A home security company name may also appear on the front of the panel. The recalled radio modules are a component used inside the Go!Control panels. A professional home security system installer can identify the recalled module. Consumers cannot identify the module safely.

This item was also sold in Canada.

Information on where these items sold new+: 2GIG sold the GSM radio modules to home security companies and security system equipment distributors nationwide and in Canada between December 2010 and October 2011 for use in Go!Control Panels. Home security companies installed the modules in control panels as part of home security systems that varied greatly in price.
