The 2GIG RPTR1-345 is a wireless repeater that works with 2Gig's GC3 and GC2 panels as well as Resideo's Lyric panels, to extend the range of wireless devices or provide an alternate signaling path. This product works for both Honeywell 5800 Series as well as 2GIG wireless RF sensors. You can use multiple repeaters with a single system, however a signal can only be repeated once when traveling back to the alarm panel. A single repeater can accept signals from as many sensors as there may within its range. The repeater should be mounted high on a wall to get the best reception for all sensors within range.
The repeater works with all GC3 panel firmware versions but if you want the option to supervise the repeater for low battery, tamper and power loss conditions, the GC3 panel must be running firmware version 3.1 or higher. For GC2 panels, the repeater only works with firmware versions 1.14 or higher. With the Resideo Lyric panel, it must be on firmware MR3 or higher. The zone programming needed for the supervision conditions is not required in order for the device to automatically pass along any Honeywell 5800 Series or 2GIG wireless sensor signals that it hears. As long as a transmitter is within range on one side of the repeater, and the alarm panel is within range on the other side of the repeater, the RF signals should be delivered.
The repeater includes a 24-hour backup battery and the power supply needed to power the unit which plugs into a standard wall outlet. The wire to connect the power supply to the repeater is not included. The LT-CABLE can be used if the outlet is within eight feet of the repeater mounting location.
Note: The 2GIG RPTR1-345 will not repeat the signal for bi-directional (2-way) communication devices like the Honeywell 5828 Keypad and the 5800WAVE Siren. Keep this in mind when system planning.
