The 2GIG DBELL1-345 is a dual purpose, wireless doorbell. The device can be powered by standard 24 VAC wiring from an existing doorbell system or battery powered with one 3V 2032 coin cell lithium battery. The doorbell should be enrolled into a 2GIG alarm system as a 'Zone Type 23 - No Response' wireless zone, regardless of how the doorbell is powered. If you do not have an existing doorbell system you can set it up wirelessly and program the zone to chime on all the keypads.
Once it is powered and programmed, the DBELL1-345 can serve as a trigger for just about anything. The most common use for the device is a trigger for automated (via Z-Wave) scenes, rules and scheduling. Another popular use of the doorbell is a way to trigger video recordings on security cameras enrolled with Alarm.com. A simple button press on the doorbell can result in numerous automation executions! Whether you are a tech guru looking for a convenient trigger point or simply looking to replace an old, broken doorbell, this doorbell is for you!
After the MR3 firmware update (01.03.06549.482) the DBELL1 is now compatible with the Lyric Controller. Previous to this update, the 2GIG GC panels could support Honeywell 5800 series sensors but no Honeywell panel would support 2GIG 345MHz sensors. The MR3 update has now opened the door for Honeywell systems to communicate with 2GIG sensors. That means now the Lyric supports a wireless doorbell button that is capable of triggering chime tones and voice announcements with the DBELL1.
When programming the sensor to a Lyric Controller, it should auto-enroll like a normal wireless device if you press the button when in the serial number field section of the zone programming. It should auto select the loop but if not, configure the DBELL1 on loop 1.
