What are Sensor Types on a 2GIG GC2?

Sensor Types on a 2GIG GC2 are used to determine how the GC2 System responds when a sensor is activated. This option is set while programming a new or existing sensor. There are many Sensor Types available, and each functions differently. The panel reboots to apply any Sensor Type changes.

The RF Sensor Type is just one of many selections made when configuring a zone on a 2GIG GC2. The option is found within System Configuration. To access the RF Sensor Type option, start from the main screen of the 2GIG GC2 System. Press the 2GIG logo in the bottom-right corner. Provide the Installer Code, which is set to 1561 by default. Choose System Configuration. Then use the left and right arrows to find the sensor you want to work with. You can also use the blue Go To button and manually enter the sensor number. Once you have found the sensor, press the down arrow once. You will then be taken to the RF Sensor Type option for that sensor. You can use the left and right arrows to scroll through the different selections.


When you have made the selection, press the down arrow to move on to the next programming field. Continue moving down through the programming options. Once you have finished, you will reach a Zone Summary screen. Press the Edit Next button. Then press End in the lower-right corner. Make sure the Save Changes box is marked, and press Exit in the lower-right corner. The panel will reboot to apply the changes.

The table below lists all of the available RF Sensor Type options:

RF Sensor Type
Notes
(00) Unused There is no sensor programmed to this slot. This wireless zone is vacant.
(01) Entry/Exit 1 If the sensor is activated while the system is Armed Away or Armed Stay, the system must be disarmed within the first set Entry Delay period, or else an alarm will occur. As an Entry/Exit zone, this sensor can be activated during the Exit Delay period to have the system go into Arm Away mode when Auto-Stay Arming is enabled.
(02) Entry/Exit 2
If the sensor is activated while the system is Armed Away or Armed Stay, the system must be disarmed within the second set Entry Delay period, or else an alarm will occur. As an Entry/Exit zone, this sensor can be activated during the Exit Delay period to have the system go into Arm Away mode when Auto-Stay Arming is enabled.
(03) Perimeter An instant alarm will occur if this sensor is activated while the system is Armed Away or Armed Stay.
(04) Interior Follower If the sensor is activated while the system is Armed Away, an immediate alarm will occur, unless an Entry/Exit zone is activated first. The zone will be bypassed when the system is set to Arm Stay.
(05) Day Zone If the sensor is activated while the system is Armed Away or Armed Stay, an immediate alarm will occur. If the sensor is activated while the system is Disarmed, a trouble condition will occur.
(06) 24-Hour Silent Alarm If the sensor is activated, an immediate silent alarm will occur. This happens regardless of whether the system is Armed or Disarmed.
(07) 24-Hour Audible Alarm If the sensor is activated, an instant alarm will occur. This happens regardless of whether the system is Armed or Disarmed.
(08) 24-Hour Auxiliary Alarm If the sensor is activated, an instant auxiliary alarm will occur. This happens regardless of whether the system is Armed or Disarmed.
(09) 24-Hour Fire If the sensor is activated, an instant fire alarm will occur. This happens regardless of whether the system is Armed or Disarmed.
(10) Interior with Delay If the sensor is activated while the system is Armed Away, then the system must be Disarmed within the first set Entry Delay period, or else an alarm will occur. The zone will be bypassed when the system is set to Arm Stay.
(14) 24-Hour Carbon Monoxide If the sensor is activated, an instant carbon monoxide alarm will occur. This happens regardless of whether the system is Armed or Disarmed.
(16) 24-Hour Fire with Verification When the sensor is activated, the system will be put on alert for a possible fire. If the same zone or a different fire zone is activated within the next 60 seconds an immediate alarm will occur. This is good for verifying that a fire alarm is legitimate.
(23) No Response Type The sensor will not cause any alarms, chimes or spoke voice annunciations. Faults will not appear on the panel. However, the sensor can still report to a central station.
(24) Silent Burglary Causes an immediate silent alarm if the sensor is activated while the system is Armed Away or Armed Stay. The central station will be immediately notified. No sirens or strobes will occur. This is basically the same as sending out a distress panic signal.
(32) Remote Device Used with remote devices.
