How Do I Program the 2GIG SMKT3-345 to the 2GIG GC3?

You can add a 2GIG SMKT3-345 to your 2GIG GC3 security system through the system programming menu of your panel. You will need to know the installer code for your GC3 system in order to access this menu. From this menu, you will also be able to change the configurations for the detector.

Complete the following steps to add a 2GIG SMKT3-345 to a 2GIG GC3:

  1. Access wireless zone programming. From the home screen of the panel, go to System Settings > enter the Installer Code (the default code is 1561) > Installer Toolbox > System Configuration > Wireless Zones. You will now be at the menu for wireless zone programming.
  2. Select an available zone. Choose an available wireless zone that will be used with the SMKT3-345.
  3. Add SMKT3-345 to programming. The table below shows all of the programmable fields and the corresponding selections that should be made. After each selection is made, press the down arrow to move to the next selection. The SMKT3-345 will require three separate zones when being used to detect heat, smoke and freeze.

  4. Programming Fields

    Field Selections

    Sensor Type

    “09 - 24-Hour Fire” or “08 - 24-Hour Auxiliary Alarm”

    The “24-Hour Fire” setting should be selected for smoke and heat detection. The “24-Hour Auxiliary Alarm” setting should be selected for freeze detection.

    Equipment Code

    Select 1058 for the smoke/heat equipment code.

    Serial Number

    We recommend auto-learning the sensor. Click the "Learn" button on the panel. Then, turn the detector counter clockwise and remove it from its mounting base. Re-seat the detector by turning it clockwise and click it back onto its mounting base. This should activate its tamper switch and learn it into the system. The serial number will pop up on the display. Click "Accept" to save, and then move to the next prompt.

    Equipment Age

    Selecting “New” or “Existing” won’t change how the system operates.

    Sensor Loop

    To use the smoke detector, select Loop 1.

    To use the heat detector, select Loop 2.

    To use the freeze detector, select Loop 3.

    If you would like to use all three features simultaneously, simply program three separate zones with the same serial number. Each zone will have a different loop programmed that corresponds to each function.

    Voice Descriptor

    Name the SMKT3-345 zones. The information entered here will display in the zone list of the system and be spoken upon alarm.

    Sensor Reports

    With this enabled, the GC3 will notify the central station of an alarm occurring on any of these zones.

    Sensor Supervised

    This option should always be enabled with smoke detectors. This tells the GC3 to listen for supervision check-in signals from the SMKT3-345. If it fails to hear from the detector for a certain period of time, a trouble will be indicated on the display.

    Sensor Chime

    This feature does not apply to the smoke detector.

  5. Save the settings. Click “Return To System Configuration” in the top-right corner of the screen. Click the back arrow on the left side of the screen, and then click “Save” after confirming that your programming changes are correct.

  6. Return to the home screen. Click the back arrow on the left side of the screen until you return to the home screen.
  7. Test the smoke. If monitored, make sure the system is on test with the monitoring station to prevent unwanted dispatch. Press and hold the Test button on the front of the unit until it beeps four times. This requires pressing and holding the button for six seconds and then releasing it. The detector will issue five more beeps and send a signal to the GC3.

  8. Test the device. To test the smoke detection of the device, light and extinguish a cotton ball, and then hold it next to the detector. Make sure the smoke enters the detector's chamber. This should trigger a fire alarm. For a more accurate test, you can also used canned smoke. To test the heat detector, point a 1000-1500 Watt hair dryer at the detector from about a foot away. If programmed, the heat detector should trigger a fire alarm. The unit will reset once it cools.
