Can I Connect A Wired Smoke To My 2GIG GC3?
The 2GIG GC3 comes equipped with 2 hardwired zones, terminal 6 for zone 1 and terminal 7 for zone 2. The hardwired zones are designed to support only hardwired door and window contacts.
If there are existing hardwired smoke detectors, users have the option to install an Encore Firefighter FF345. The FF345 is a wireless audio module that can be used to monitor existing hardwired or battery operated smoke detectors. The Encore Firefighter FF345 is not a smoke detector, and basically acts like an “ear” for the GC3, listening to the hardwired and or battery operated smoke detectors. The FF345’s microphone picks up the unique sound of an activated smoke detector and will then send a wireless signal to the 2GIG GC3 control plan. Please refer to the install manual for the Encore Firefighter FF345 for complete instructions and proper placement.
The 2GIG GC3 control panel does support wireless smoke detectors. The compatible wireless 2GIG smoke detectors are the 2GIG SMKT2-345 wireless smoke and heat detector, and the 2GIG SMKT3-345, wireless smoke, heat and freeze detector. Honeywell's 5809 wireless heat detector, the 5806W3 wireless smoke detector and the 5808W3 smoke and heat detector are also compatible.
The 2GIG GC3 control panel supports a total of 102 zones, 2 hardwired and 100 wireless zones, plus 32 dedicated keyfob zones.
