How to wire a Honeywell IS216 motion detector?
The Honeywell IS216 PIR motion detector is a breeze to install and requires a four wire connection to the alarm control panel. Two wires will connect the alarm system’s auxiliary power supply to the terminals labeled +/- 12V on the IS216. The auxiliary power circuit is terminals 4 and 5 on most VISTA series alarm panels. The other two wires connect the terminals labeled C & NC on the IS216 motion to the selected zone circuit on your hardwired alarm system.
The Honeywell IS216 motion detector should be mounted approximately 7½’ high for optimum performance and can be mounted flat on the wall or in a corner. The back of the sensor snaps off allowing you to mount it and thread the necessary wires through the wall. Make sure to walk test your IS216 after installation to ensure that your wiring was done properly and the device is detecting motion in the intended coverage area.
