2GIG RPTR1-345 - Wireless Repeater Reviews
Submitted on 05/13/2020 Alarm Grid
The 2GIG RPTR1-345 is a wireless repeater designed for use with 2GIG 345 MHz Sensors and Honeywell 5800 Sensors. Using this repeater can effectively double the signal range for a compatible wireless sensor. However, the repeater has some restrictions in how it can be used. And while it comes with a plug-in transformer, it does not have a cable for connecting the transformer. But it does include a backup battery for providing a backup power source. Overall, we think the 2GIG RPTR1-345 is a great product, and we give it a 5 Star rating.
There are many aspects we appreciate about regarding the 2GIG RPTR1-345. For one, it can double the range of compatible wireless sensors when positioned appropriately. The 2GIG RPTR1-345 works quite reliably and it is easy for DIY users to set up. We also like the fact that it has LED lights to assist with using the device. The repeater is versatile in the fact that it is used with both Honeywell 5800 Sensors and 2GIG 345 MHz Sensors.
But there are also some downsides to the 2GIG RPTR1-345 that should be considered. Although a plug-in transformer is included, no wiring is provided, so you will need to supply your own. Although the 2GIG RPTR1-345 works with most Honeywell 5800 Sensors, it does not work with those that use two-way communication. Therefore, you cannot use the 2GIG RPTR1-345 with devices like the Honeywell 5828 Keypad and the Honeywell 580WAVE Siren. Also, you cannot repeat a signal more than once, so don't expect using multiple 2GIG RPTR1-345 devices to repeat signals over and over. But you can have two 2GIG RPTR1-345 modules in different directions from the main panel to repeat signals incoming from different sides. Lastly, the RPTR1-345 cannot be used with 2GIG encrypted sensors.
Alarm Grid highly recommends the 2GIG RPTR1-345. It gets 5 Stars.
Good: Doubles Range, Easy to Install, LED Lights, Versatile
Bad: No Wiring, Not for 2-Way 5800 Sensors, Cannot Repeat Signals More than Once
Bottom Line: 5 Stars
