How Do I Setup A Hardwire Zone On 2GIG GC3?

The 2GIG GC3 supports 2 hardwired zones for door and window contacts only. The 2GIG GC3 hardwired zones do not support hardwired Smoke Detectors, CO Detectors, Motion Detectors or Glassbreak Detectors. Users can use the compatible wireless smoke detector, co detector. motion detector and glassbreak detector.

After the 2GIG GC3 panel and hardwired contacts have been installed, run a wire from the contact to the panel using 22AWG- for a MAX distance of 75ft, 20AWG- for a MAX distance of 120ft, 18AWG- for a MAX distance of 170ft , and 16AWG- for a MAX distance of 270ft. Route the wire through the cut out in the back of the GC3 panel. Connect the wire to terminal 6 for zone 1 and terminal 7 for zone 2.

The two hardwired zones can be used for both normally closed or normally opened contacts. ELOR (end of line resistor) is used to supervise open and short circuit conditions. To utilize ELOR, install a 2.2K resistor at the loop furthest away from the panel.

If there are existing hardwired sensors and you’ve replaced a hardwired panel with a 2GIG GC3, a 2GIG Super Switch (also known as the 2GIG Take-345) can be used to convert the existing hardwired contacts to wireless.One 2GIG Super Switch will convert a total of 8 hardwired contacts, more then one super switch can be used. Hardwired Motion Detectors and Glassbreak Detectors can be used with a 2GIG Super Switch, but NO life safety devices such as Smoke Detectors and CO Detectors. Users can use an Encore Firefighter FF345 to takeover hardwired smoke detectors and CO Detectors (FF345 Version 1.5 or higher). Please refer to the install manuals for the 2GIG Take-345 and the Encore Firefighter FF345 for complete install instructions and requirements. .

In addition to the 2 hardwired zones, the 2GIG GC3 panel supports 100 wireless zones and 32 key fob zones making the panel perfect for both residential and commercial properties.
