home’s existing 24 AC wiring, the bell is fully water‐resistant and
the push button remains illuminated.

features a fully water‐resistant button. It communicates with the

Installing and Mounting the Doorbell
If possible, locate sensors within 100 ft (30 m) of the 2GIG Control

withstand weather and features a weep hole for draining, it is
recommended that you avoid mounting the sensor in areas
that may be subject to extreme moisture.
