Lehi, UT — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and 2GIG Technologies Inc. have voluntarily recalled GSM Radio Modules Used in Go!Control Panels for fire and burn hazards the product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide recall on February 22, 2012.

The panels were recalled after discovering that the GSM radio modules used inside Go!Control Panels for home security systems can overheat and combust, which can result in a fire or burn hazard to consumers.

“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,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers are advised to contact your home security company of 2GIG if you have not been contacted and have a question whether your home security system has the recalled module.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact your home security company or 2GIG toll-free at (855) 244-4832 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MT Monday through Friday or visit www.2gig.com.
