The Honeywell Home PROTAKEOVER is a module add-on for the PROA7PLUS, PROA7PLUSC, PROA7, and PROA7C. By installing this module, your system will be able to support one of several legacy RF sensor lineups. You can pick between Honeywell 5800, 2GIG 345 MHz, 433 MHz, 319.5 MHz, and Bosch Sensors.
Right out of the box, a ProSeries Panel can readily support Honeywell Home PROSIX Series Sensors and older Honeywell SiX Series Sensors. The PROSIX and SiX Series Sensors are state-of-the-art and offer the best range for the system and 128-bit AES encryption for enhanced wireless security. But if you want to bring over existing legacy sensors to the panel, then you need to add the Honeywell Home PROTAKEOVER Module. This is the only way to provide legacy sensor support for a ProSeries System. The PROTAKEOVER Module receives all its power (5V) from the alarm panel.
When installing the PROTAKEOVER Module, you must make sure to power down the system entirely. This is done by opening up the panel and disconnecting the backup battery and unplugging the AC transformer. The module is inserted into a slot on the panel. A screw is used to secure it into place. Before installation, you must set the rotary switch on the module to the number that corresponds with the desired legacy frequency. The table below shows the rotary switch settings. Note that Honeywell 5800 Series and 2GIG 345 MHz sensors are not interchangeable. You must choose to use one or the other manufacturer's sensors.
|Rotary Switch Setting
|Legacy Sensor Frequency
||2GIG 345 MHz (Does NOT Include 5800)
||DSC 433 MHz
||Qolsys & Interlogix 319.5 MHz
The PROTAKEOVER comes with the module itself and a replacement back plate. During the process of installing the PROTAKEOVER Module, you must dismount the panel from its existing wall mounting plate, and replace the existing back plate with the one that comes with the PROTAKEOVER Module. The back plate that comes with the PROTAKEOVER contains the antenna that it uses for communicating with the legacy sensors. Without this back plate, the PROTAKEOVER will have very poor reception, and may be completely unusable. Be advised, at this time, there is no option to use the PROTAKEOVER Module with a desk mounted system.
Please note that as of ProSeries Panel Firmware Version 03.592.107.0, life-safety sensors, including smoke detectors and CO detectors, are now supported when using the Honeywell Home PROTAKEOVER Module. The use of 5800 Series Life-Safety sensors has been tested for an ETL Residential Fire listing. The ProSeries panels will allow you to program other legacy RF devices for Fire or Carbon Monoxide, but using Life-Safety sensors from other manufacturers will not carry the same ETL Residential Fire listing. For full information about this firmware update, check out this post.
For more information on which legacy sensors are compatible with the PROTAKEOVER, please refer to the compatibility chart released by Resideo. Only one (1) PROTAKEOVER Module can be installed inside the ProSeries System at any given time. This means that only one (1) legacy sensor lineup can be used with the panel. By adding the PROTAKEOVER Module, you will unlock the potential to use 250 zones with the PROA7PLUS System. Only 127 zones can be used with PROSIX and SiX Series Sensors. The other 123 zones are unlocked upon installing the PROTAKEOVER module for legacy sensors.
