How Do I Pair the 2GIG SP1 Keypad with the 2GIG GC3?

You can pair the 2GIG SP1 Keypad with the 2GIG GC3 by accessing the Keypads Menu of the GC3 System. The system must be running firmware version 3.1 or higher. If it isn't, you will need to update the firmware first. Up to four wireless keypads can be paired with the 2GIG GC3 System.

To do this, simply contact your alarm monitoring company, and tell them you would like to upgrade the firmware for your 2GIG GC3. Please note that there will be a small fee to update the firmware this way. Alarm Grid passes this fee directly to our customers, with no mark-up.

Complete the following steps to pair a 2GIG SP1 Keypad with the 2GIG GC3:

1. Access the Keypads Menu. Start from the main screen of the 2GIG GC3. Click the 2GIG logo in the top-right corner of the screen. Enter the system's Installer Code. The default Installer Code is 1561. You will enter the Installer Toolbox. Then choose System Configuration, followed by Keypads. This will take you into the Keypads Menu.

2. Enable the keypad. Choose one of the four keypad slots, and click the blue "Edit Keypad" button. For Keypad Used, choose "Enabled". For Equipment Code, choose "1060 - 2GIG SP1 Keypad". Then press the "Pair" button under Device ID. This will allow the SP1 Keypad to be paired with the System.

3. Pair the keypad. Power up the 2GIG SP1 Keypad, and connect it to the same WIFI network as the GC3 System. Both the GC3 and the SP1 can use either a 2.4 GHZ or a 5GHz network connection. If the GC3 System needs to be connected with WIFI, please consult this FAQ. Then on the 2GIG SP1 Keypad, press the "Pair" button. The SP1 Keypad should pair with the 2GIG GC3 System.

Once you have finished, press the blue "Back to Keypads" button. Then press "Return to System Configuration" in the top-right corner. Then press the blue return arrow on the left side of the screen. Press the green "Save" button to save the changes. Finally, press the return arrow on the left side of the screen. The changes will be saved, and the system will return to the home screen.
