What are the Response Types on a 2GIG GC2 or GC2e?

There are many Response Types used with a 2GIG GC2 or 2GIG GC2e. Each zone on the system is assigned a Response Type. This setting determines how the system responds when the sensor programmed to that zone is faulted. Setting the appropriate Response Type for each zone is very important.

Below, you will find the list of possible Response Types for a 2GIG GC2 or 2GIG GC2e:

(00) Unused - This means that no sensor is being used for that Sensor Number. In other words, this wireless zone is open.

(01) Exit/Entry 1 - If the sensor is activated while the system is armed stay or armed away, then the system must then be disarmed within the system's entry delay 1 period (set in Question 6 of programming). If the system is not disarmed within this time period, an alarm will occur. This sensor type also provides a delay for exiting the premises after arming. The exit delay is set in Question 5, and is 60 seconds by default.

(02) Exit/Entry 2 - If the sensor is activated while the system is armed stay or armed away, then the system must then be disarmed within the system's entry delay 2 period (set in Question 7 of programming). If the system is not disarmed within this time period, an alarm will occur. This sensor type will provide the same delay time for exiting the premises as Response Type Exit/Entry 1.

(03) Perimeter - If the sensor is activated while the system is armed stay or armed away, an instant alarm will occur.

(04) Interior Follower - If the sensor is activated while the system is armed away, an instant alarm will occur, unless an Entry/Exit zone was activated first. If the system is set to armed stay, then the sensor will be autommatically bypassed and unable to cause an alarm.

(05) Day Zone - If the sensor is activated while the system is armed stay or armed away, an instant alarm will occur. Additionally, 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 instant alarm will occur. However, no siren or strobe will occur on the system. This will always occur, regardless of whether the system is armed or disarmed.

(07) 24-Hour Audible Alarm - If the sensor is activated, an instant alarm will occur. Any siren that has been set up with the system will activate. This will always occur, regardless of whether the system is armed or disarmed.

(08) 24-Hour Auxiliary Alarm - If the sensor is activated, the system sounder will activate, and an instant alarm will occur. However, any external siren or strobe programmed with the system will not activate. This will always occur, regardless of whether the system is armed or disarmed.

(09) 24-Hour Fire - If the sensor is activated, an instant alarm will occur. Any siren that has been set up with the system will activate. This will always occur, regardless of whether the system is armed or disarmed. Sensors programmed with this Response Type cannot be bypassed. This option is only available for RF zones.

(10) Interior with Delay - If the sensor is activated while the system is armed away, then the system must be disarmed within the system's entry delay 1 period (set in Question 6 of programming). If the system is not disarmed within this time period, an alarm will occur. If the system is armed stay, then the sensor will be automatically bypassed and unable to cause an alarm.

(14) 24-Hour Carbon Monoxide - If the sensor is activated, an instant alarm will occur. Any siren that has been set up with the system will activate. This will always occur, regardless of whether the system is armed or disarmed. This sensor type is always active and cannot be bypassed. It can only be used for RF zones.

(16) 24-Hour Fire with Verification - If the sensor is activated twice within a two minute period, or if the sensor is activated and remains activated for 30 straight seconds, an alarm will occur. In addition, if a second fire sensor is activated within two (2) minutes of the initial activation of this sensor, then both sensors will cause a fire alarm. Any siren that has been set up with the system will activate. This will always occur, regardless of whether the system is armed or disarmed. This sensor type cannot be bypassed, and is only available for use with RF zones.

(23) No Response Type - The sensor will not be able to cause any system events. However, the sensor can still be monitored by a central station.

(24) Silent Burglary - If the sensor is activated while the system is armed stay or armed away, an instant, silent alarm will occur. A silent burglary signal will be sent out to the central station. However, the system sounder, along with any sirens or strobes, will not activate.

(32) Remote Device - Used for remote peripheral devices that can signal their own troubles such as RF Jam, low battery, tamper, or AC loss.
