The Honeywell WAVE2 is a self-contained two-tone siren. The WAVE2 produces a loud 106dB dual tone siren output when connected to a wired security system such as the Honeywell VISTA. Being a self-contained siren means the WAVE2 does not require a siren driver, and has all necessary driver electronics built-in.
The WAVE2 has a unique hinged case that allows the siren to be installed and mounted without disassembly. You can mount the WAVE2 vertically or horizontally, flat on the wall, or in a corner all without any brackets or additional mounting equipment. The three screw terminal block allows the WAVE2 to be wired without soldering or stripping wires. The WAVE2 is also the perfect size to mount to a single gang electrical box.
When wiring the WAVE2, connect to the siren or bell output from your alarm panel. The (-) from the bell output should wire to GND, and the (+) from the bell output should be wired to terminal #1 for a steady siren tone, and/or terminal #2 for a warble or varied siren tone. In systems with a single bell output available, the user will need to choose to wire the positive bell wire from the panel to either Steady (recommended) or Warble. Vista alarm systems will provide a steady output for burglary alarms, and a temporal 3 pulsing output for fire alarms. Wiring to the WAVE2 terminal marked steady will allow users in the area to hear the difference. This will allow them to tell immediately if the alarm is a burglary or a fire alarm.
The WAVE2 is compatible with all 12V wired security systems, and draws up to 500mA when in alarm. This Honeywell siren is also UL listed for commercial burglary. A siren is the most important part of any security system, alerting everyone within earshot of an intrusion, and usually scaring the intruder away. The easy to install WAVE2 is the ultimate combination of value and function for all wired siren applications. For indoor use only.
