How do you add a 2GIG PIR1-345 to the 2GIG GC3?

You can add a 2GIG PIR1-345 through system programming. This can be accessed through the main screen by using the panel's installer code. The majority of the configurations for motion detectors can be set here. Make sure to save any changes you make after programming has been completed.

The 2GIG PIR1-345 is a passive infrared motion detector that has both a high sensitivity setting and a low sensitivity setting. The device can also be configured to be pet-immune, and it has two different pet immunity settings. One setting is for pets 33lbs and under, and the other is for pets 55lbs and under. With pet immunity enabled, the sensor is less likely to be triggered if a pet walks past the motion detection area. However if the pet is heavier than the listed weight or it gets within six feet of the detector, the device will still activate. Also remember that it is possible for a pet under the listed weight to set off the motion detector if the mounting instructions for pet immunity are not followed correctly.

Complete the following steps to add a 2GIG PIR1-345 to a 2GIG GC3:

  1. Access zone programming. At the GC3 home screen, click on the "2GIG Logo” in the top-right corner. Enter the installer code (the default is 1561), then click “System Config”, followed by “Wireless Zones”.
  2. Select a zone. The window on the left side of the screen contains all of the available wireless zones on the system. Zone numbers in bold are already programmed. Available zones will display in light gray. Select the zone you would like use for the motion, and then press "Edit Zone".
  3. Program the motion. On the left side of this screen, you'll see each programming option for the zone. As you select each option, the available programming is shown on the right side of the screen. After you program each option, press the down arrow on the right side of the display to move to the next programming option within the zone.
  4. Programming Fields

    Program Selections

    Sensor Type

    “04 - Interior Follower” or “10 - Interior with Delay”

    Interior zone types are automatically bypassed when the system is armed in stay mode. These zone types will provide exit delay. Interior follower will provide entry delay, only if another delay zone is tripped first, such as when you open a delay door, but you must then walk past the motion to get to the panel to disarm. If the Interior follower zone is faulted before a delay zone is tripped, it provides an instant alarm. Interior with delay will always provide both exit delay and the same delay as Entry Delay 1 [Q5 in panel programming].

    Equipment Code

    0869 - 2GIG PIR with Pet Immunity

    Serial Number

    Click "Learn" in the bottom-right to put the system into learn mode. Remove the backplate from the motion, or activate the tamper switch. The system will display the motion's serial number when it is received. Verify that it is correct, and then click accept to save.

    Equipment Age

    Select “New” or “Existing” based on whether the device is new or has already been installed. This setting has no effect on the motion's operation.

    Sensor Loop

    Loop 1

    Transmission Delay


    Enabling this option tells the panel to delay alarm reporting by the amount of time programmed in the panel [Q39]. The default delay is 30 seconds. Alarm Grid recommends that this feature be disabled.

    Voice Descriptor

    Naming the motion will display its name in the system's zone list, as well as including it when notifications for the zone are sent from

    Sensor Reports


    With this enabled, the system will transmit the sensor alarm signals to a central station. If disabled, the system will not transmit any sensor alarms.

    Sensor Supervised


    When supervision is enabled, the panel listens for periodic check-in signals from the wireless device. If it goes for a period of time without hearing from the device, it will show an RF Supervision trouble. With this disabled, the panel won't alert the end user if it fails to hear from the device.

    Sensor Chime


    Typically, users don’t want the system to chime each time the motion is triggered.

  5. Return to the home screen. Click “Return to System Configuration”, followed by the back arrow on the right hand side of the screen. Finally, click "Save". This will confirm and save your programming edits.
  6. Test the motion. The motion can be tested with the Walk Test feature on the system. A successful walk test will confirm that the motion was successfully added to the system.
