Can I Mount a WAVE2 Siren Outside?

The Honeywell Wave2 siren is not weatherproof and is recommended for indoor installations. The Wave2 siren's operating temperature ranges from 20F - 175F. Users can install the siren in an attic next to a vent so the siren can project its sound outside. It has a DB rating of 106dB so neighbors will be sure to hear the Wave2 when an alarm occurs.

The WAVE2 is a hardwired two tone siren that can provide both steady and warble sounds. Connect a wire to Terminal 1 for steady (positive), or Terminal 2 for warble (positive) and Ground (negative). Unlike wireless self contained alarm panels like the Lynx Touch Series, Lyric and 2GIG which have a built in sounder, a, hardwired control panel needs to have a siren installed in order to provide an alarm sound when an audible zone is triggered. Without a siren, the only sound will come from the alarm keypads.

The siren’s dimensions are 3.25"W x 4.25"H x 2"D which makes it easily fit in small places. It can be mounted vertically or horizontally and is designed to be mounted on a wall, ceiling, or in a corner without having to use brackets, a shelf, or additional hardware. The WAVE 2 is also designed to fit a single gang box, and has a built in siren driver. It is listed for UL Residential Fire, UL Residential Burg and UL Commercial Burg.

The WAVE2 has a current draw of 500mA @ 12VDC. It's good to check power calculations on your system, and if an auxiliary power supply is needed, either the AD12612 or the SMP3 make for good options.

The Honeywell WAVE2 siren is compatible with the Honeywell Vista control panels or any 12 Volt DC hardwired control panel. It is also compatible with the Honeywell Lynx Touch series control panel when paired with a Lynx-EXT or Lynx-WEXT converter kit.
