MELVILLE, N.Y. — Ending a near two-year patent infringement lawsuit, 2GIG Technologies will pay an undisclosed amount to license technology under Honeywell’s so-called 148 Patent. Other terms of the settlement remain confidential.
In a joint announcement this week, Honeywell and 2GIG said the settlement resolves a lawsuit Honeywell filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York in November 2009. The suit was filed against 2GIG and one of its founders, Scott Simon.
Simon is a former Honeywell Security veteran. He and three others are named as inventors of the 148 Patent. Simon and his colleagues launched 2GIG in 2008. The company’s security and home management system panel named Go!Control was introduced as part of the existing APX Alarm residential security package in December 2009.
