Description

The 2GIG TAKE-KIT1 is a wired to wireless conversion kit. The foundation of the kit is the 2GIG TAKE-345 "Super Switch" takeover module which allows an installer to land 8 wired security zones and convert them to 8 wireless zone. The Super Switch is designed to integrate pre-wired sensors with the 2GIG Go!Control wireless alarm system. The control panel has a built-in 345MHz RF receiver. The Super Switch is constantly converting all the signals received on the wired terminals to this 345MHz RF frequency. The Super Switch is included in this kit but is also sold separately. For those looking to tie into the low voltage power supply of an existing wired system you will not require the other parts in this kit.

The TAKE-KIT1 is a bundled package that includes the Altronix 100UL 12VDC auxiliary power supply, Altronix TP1620 16.5VAC 50VA transformer, and an ABS plastic enclosure. The plastic enclosure is suitable for housing 4 of the takeover modules, the power supply and a backup battery. The backup battery is required, however it is not included in the kit! We recommend the Ultratech 1240 12VDC 4AH backup battery. This particular battery should last anywhere between 4 to 24 hours depending on power usage.

This kit is a perfect solution for those looking to cut cost and eliminate battery replacement on peripheral sensors. The 2GIG Go!Control wireless alarm panel is a robust Z-Wave controller (232 Z-wave devices) and advanced security system (48 wireless security zones). This kit is the only way to gain the benefits of the Go!Control panel while maintaing a system built around wired security sensors. The many benefits of the Go!Control panel include firmware updates, advanced automation control (scenes, rules and scheduling), CDMA-compatible (Verizon) cellular communications, and much more!

The 2GIG TAKE-KIT1 is a wired to wireless converter kit that is used when a user is upgrading from a hardwired system to a wireless system that supports 2GIG 345 MHz Sensors. The Kit includes a 2GIG TAKE-345 Wired to Wireless Converter, an Altronix 100UL 12VDC Auxiliary Power Supply, an Altronix TP1620 16.5VAC 50VA Transformer, and an ABS plastic enclosure. You really only need this kit if you aren't using an existing security panel to power the 2GIG TAKE-345. If you are using an old wired system to power the module, then you really are better off just buying the standalone module. But if you need a way to power the converter, then this kit is a great option. We think it works very well, and we give it 5 Stars.

There are many things to like about the 2GIG TAKE-KIT1. It can save you money when upgrading from a hardwired system, as you won't have to replace most of the sensors. Almost everything you need is included in the kit, so you won't have to go hunting for different accessories. The kit works with a variety of different 345 MHz panels, including the Lyric, and nearly all of the 2GIG Systems. This make it quite versatile.

There are some downsides to the 2GIG TAKE-KIT1 that should be considered. For one, you only need it if you aren't planning on connecting your 2GIG TAKE-345 to an existing wired system for power. Another downside is that a backup battery is not included with the kit. You will need to buy one separately. But these downsides are relatively minor, and the positives outweigh them. For that reason, we have no problem giving this kit a 5 Star rating.

Good: Use Existing Wired Sensors, Includes Most Required Accessories, Versatile Converter Module

Bad: Not Needed if Using Existing System for Power, Backup Battery Not Included

Bottom Line: 5 Stars
