The 2GIG TAKE-345 is a wired to wireless converter that lets you use hardwired sensors with a compatible 345 MHz system. The wired sensors will connect directly with the TAKE-345, and the module will send out a wireless signal to the panel on their behalf. Buy the TAKE-345 from Alarm Grid.

The 2GIG TAKE-345 is a wired to wireless takeover module, also known as the "Super Switch." The Super Switch is a wired panel designed to convert wired security sensors to wireless zones. In particular, the unit will convert a total of 8 wired zones and convert them into 8 wireless (345MHz) zones. This includes normally closed (Form A) sensors, motion detectors and glass breaks. It does NOT support life safety devices such as smoke, heat and CO detectors. This is a great option for anyone interested in converting an existing wired system over to wireless or looking to utilize wired contacts with the Go!Control wireless alarm system. One of the downsides of RF sensors is replacing batteries so the takeover module offers the best of both worlds.

The TAKE-345 is designed to connect to an existing wired system and tie into the 12VDC power connections. If it is a fresh pre-wire installation or you plan to remove the existing wired system the 2GIG TAKE-KIT1 is recommended for independent power. The kit includes everything you will need to power the Super Switch including a power supply, transformer, and backup battery. Whether you are using an existing system or the auxiliary power supply from the kit you will need to connect the 12VDC low voltage power to the terminal labeled, "12V." This should be the last step in the wiring. First you will want to connect your data or "Zone" wires.

The high side (positive) of each wired zone should be landed on its own screw terminal on the Super Switch. These are labeled 1 through 8 and can handled several sensors on a single zone as long as they are wired in series. The low side (negative) of each wired zone should be connected to the ground terminal on the Super Switch. If there is not enough room to fit all the sensors you can run a short patch cable of 18 gauge wire from the ground connection and use a wire nut to connect all the low end data wires.

After your data wires are connected you can connect the battery leads to the battery, observing polarity. Then land the positive power connection to the "12V" terminal followed by the negative power connection to the "G" terminal.

Hi, It’s a little different. The Take-345 assumes the original panel will stay installed, and keep the backup battery charged. It’s meant to act as sort of a life support system for the Take-345. So, the Take-345 just has 12V and Ground connected to it, coming from the original panel’s auxiliary power output (like terminals 4 and 5 on a Vista panel). It also only supports up to 8 zones. Each of the 8 zones uses the Ground terminal as the negative for the zone. In theory, assuming the 12 volt ground is common to all the zone negatives on the original panel, you don’t even really need the negative wires for the zones.
I am getting ready to upgrade from the 2GIG GC2 to the Qolsys IQ panel 2 plus Verizon-LTE with PowerG & legacy Honeywell, 2gig 345 MHZ. My question is, I have two existing 2gig TAKE-345 with 16 hardwired zones. Everything I have researched so far says these would be compatible with the Qolsys - correct? If so, how would these and the zones be programed into the panel? Is the process the same as the hardwire 16-F?
Its not recommended, the installation guidelines for the GC3 and TAKE345 request that they have their own power supply. Even the transformer itself wouldn't be able to be used for the GC3 or the TAKE345 as it provides AC power and they both require DC power.
Can the same 120V AC power source be used to power both the 2gig GC3 and TAKE345? I have a Vista20p with a single 120v ac power source. Itll be difficult to run another separate 120v power source into the box. To be more specific, can I jump the Vista20p AC input to the GC3 while also powering the TAKE345 off the vists20p 12vdc aux?
What is the current draw of the unit? - EDIT: Nevermind, I downloaded the manual from your site and it says 50 ma. Thanks for providing the resource!
Thanks for the suggestion, I've requested an update to the description.
Thanks for the update! You might mention its Lyric compatibility in the product description.
Now that the Lyric supports 2Gig sensors - https://www.alarmgrid.com/blog/2gig-wireless-sensors-now-work-with-the-honeywell-lyric, you can use this product with 2gig systems and the Honeywell Lyric system.
Please let us know if you have any other questions on the proposed upgrade and feel free to email us at support@alarmgrid.com or give us a call M-F 9-9 EST at 888-818-7728.
Thank You for the information and help Frank. I Appreciate it
Yes it is possible. However there are some limitations. It will not support any wired life safety devices such as smoke detectors or CO detectors. As long as these are just burglary zones you can certainly use a takeover module. Keep in mind that the TAKE-345 requires that you keep the existing alarm cabinet and use the existing AC transformer and backup battery. If you need a new battery I recommend the following: https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/ultratech-1240. If you prefer to remove the DSC panel and use a standalone translator with its own transformer for power I recommend checking out the 5800C2W: https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/honeywell-5800c2w. This is a 9 zone converter whereas the TAKE-345 is only 8. So count your wired zones. The GC2 and GC3 panels support Honeywell 5800 series sensors and that is the technology that the C2W uses. Either translator will work. Here is a group of videos on the C2W install for an idea of what it takes to swap things over: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqc_uNGw_fA&list=PL5jRrn_Y1aOUeJL6GvkrEeOSWzmtrOGOq
I recently purchased a home that has a DSC Power 832 PC5010 Control panel with 8 wired zones. Is it possible to convert this to wireless zones that can work with the 2GIG Go Control system? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/84d39cbfecf2807b499cac9777a581157d587d61075adb8da9cf6c6011fa64c0.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5522c25d28501961ba62bea42e564bc2fbecc32bb57c5bc7db763aef1e5b8842.jpg
There is no limit as long as you don't exceed the total number of zone supported on your particular 2Gig system (all should support at least 20).
how many zone takeover modules can be added to a 2GIG system? I'm taking over a system with 20 zones on it.
You're welcome Cynthia!
Thank you!
Yes this module is only supported by 2GIG systems. You can check out the Honeywell 5800C2W (https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/honeywell-5800c2w ) for Honeywell or 2GIG panels. However if you are looking to integrate your wired sensors with another brand you should check the RE508 (https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/resolution-products-re508x ).
Is this takeover module compatible only with 2GIG security and automation systems?
