Alarm Grid Video Recap: December 9th - 13thPosted By Michael Goris
It's time for another video recap from Alarm Grid! We're covering the five (5) new videos from last week, December 9th thru 13th. We have new videos featuring Jarrett, Jorge, and Joe. We hope that you find them helpful as usual. Let's check out the newest videos from the Alarm Grid team!
Jarrett explains which wireless motion sensors work with the Honeywell LYNX Touch L7000 System. The L7000 will support wireless 345 MHz motion sensors from the Honeywell 5800 Series. Some of the most popular motion sensors to use with this system include the Honeywell 5800PIR-RES and the Honeywell 5800PIR-COM. These motion sensors can be auto-enrolled with the panel. Remember that each wireless motion sensor will take up at least one wireless zone on the system. Some motion sensors may use additional zones for extra features, such as low temperature detection.
Joe outlines how the Honeywell Home 6290W Touchscreen Keypad connects with a Honeywell VISTA Security Panel. The keypad uses a four (4) wire connection, and it is wired in at the designated terminals on the main panel board. Two (2) of the wires are for power, and the others are for data transmission. You should power down the panel completely before connecting the keypad. Once you power the VISTA Panel back on, the Honeywell Home 6290W Keypad should power on as well.
Jarrett covers which keypad is best for a Honeywell VISTA 20P Alarm Panel. If you are looking for a first keypad for the system, then we recommend the Honeywell 6160RF. This will serve as an Alphanumeric keypad for programming the system. It also has a built-in wireless transceiver that will allow you to start using wireless 345 MHz sensors from the Honeywell 5800 Series. Subsequent keypads can be either Alphanumeric 6160 Keypads, Fixed English 6150 Keypads, or even touchscreen keypads like the Honeywell 6290W or Honeywell Tuxedo Touch.
Jorge provides an overview of the Qolsys S-Line Encryption that is used with Qolsys S-Line Sensors when paired with a Qolsys IQ Panel 2. These sensors communicate using encrypted wireless 319.5 MHz transmissions that operate on a rolling code basis. Every time an encrypted S-Line Sensor communicates with an IQ Panel 2, the system must send an encrypted response back to the sensor for the command to go through. This encrypted code is only known by the sensor and the panel. The sensor will then "roll" to the next encrypted code for the following transmission.
Jorge teaches users how they can control smart lights using a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 System. This system has a built-in Z-Wave Plus controller for supporting Z-Wave lights. Any Z-Wave light that is paired with the IQ Panel 2 can be controlled directly from the system or from a paired IQ Remote Touchscreen Keypad. If you have the system monitored, then you can also control the lights remotely using the Alarm.com Mobile App on your phone. You will need to have an alarm monitoring plan that includes access to Alarm.com for automation.
