The security products provider, Interlogix, (often referred to as “GE,” “ITI,” and “UTC”) discontinued operations at the end of 2019
Their product line includes some widely used alarm control panel brands such as Simon, Concord, and Caddx. Interlogix intends to provide technical support for an unspecified amount of time and to honor warranty obligations.
There are numerous other manufacturers that provide compatible wireless sensors should replacements or additions be needed for existing systems and cellular communicators are, and will continue to be, manufactured and provided by Alarm.com.
THERE IS NO NEED FOR IMMEDIATE ACTION OR REPLACEMENT OF THIS EQUIPMENT
There is every reason to believe that these systems can and will continue to operate for the foreseeable future. A job aid, prepared by our Corporate Director Of Field Operations and Inventory Control & Vendor Relations Manager, is provided below to help you decide what to use if a panel, or critical component, becomes inoperable and suitable replacements are needed.
