The Resolution Products RE524X is a universal wireless translation device. This product is designed to convert wireless signals from one RF signal to another. It is powered by an included 12VDC power supply with a barrel connector for simple setup. Each alarm manufacturer selects their own propriety wireless signal for their RF transmitters to communicate back to the RF receiver. Although 2GIG GC panels support Honeywell 5800 series sensors out of the box, most alarm systems are stuck with using the same brand of wireless sensors. Well, the RE524X changes everything by supporting the translation of the most popular RF sensors to the most popular wireless alarm panels all in a single device.

Similar to other translator modules this device will not convert signals for life safety devices! Any existing wireless smoke, heat or CO detectors will not work with this device. Listening modules like the FF345 or the FF319 should also not be used with the RE524X. The best approach is to purchase new RF devices that are supported to the current alarm system.

Before the release of this revolutionary product, Resolution Products sold several different modules that translated one specific RF technology to another. For example, the RE224 was able to receive 2GIG (345MHz) RF signals and transmit Honeywell (5800 series) RF back to a Honeywell LYNX Touch panel. This was perfect for a situation where there are 2GIG sensors with a Honeywell alarm panel but ruled out the use of any other sensors. This device will translate up to 64 Honeywell zones and unlimited (i.e. the maximum number of supported sensors) for any other compatible system currently.

Essentially, the RE524X is the ultimate take-over and upgrade tool. Just because you have old interlogix wireless sensors does not mean you have to keep your old GE Simon panel. You can upgrade to a 2GIG GC3 panel and utilize the technologically advanced features of Maybe you have been researching the new Honeywell self-contained panels and the new Lyric Controller is in your sights. Install the RE524X and upgrade to a state of the art Lyric panel. This product removes the proprietary and technological constraints of upgrading to a different brand of alarm equipment by eliminating the need to swap in all new sensors.

After you select the panel and sensor type using the knobs, each sensor must be learned into the RE524X. Press "configure" on the inside of the module. Then tamper or trip each sensor one at a time in order to learn them in. Once they are all enrolled press "configure" button again to exit the learning mode. Next you need to learn the translator itself into the alarm system as a zone. For Honeywell and 2GIG panels set the zone to loop 1. With the tamper cover open on the converter, each sensor can be programmed to the alarm panel. We recommend learning in the serial numbers by tripping the sensor. This confirms that the translation is occurring properly. There are specific zone configurations spelled out in the installation manual.

**This device is fully UL Certified to UL1023 and ULC1023 standards.**

Are you saying that you want to have the RE524X transmit the same signals to two separate panels at the same time? Or do you plan to replace the DSC Impassa with some other panel?
I have a DSC Impassa panel with several sensors. The RE524X device only works in conjunction with the panel and sensors? I mean, if I buy another panel to where the signals are going to be translated to, do I have to have both panels and RE524X? Thanks!
Then, in that case, be sure to set the output dial to 345 MHz (Honeywell/2GIG) and you should be good. Be sure to set the Source in the zone programming to SecurityRF-345 (though if you auto-learn the sensors, this should come up automatically).
I have the 345 MHz
There are three versions of the IQ Panel 2 Plus, there's a 433 MHz, a 319.5 MHz, and a 345 MHz. Assuming you have the 319.5 MHz version, as long as you select the output on the RE524X for 319.5 MHz (GE or Interlogix) and you set the Source in your zone programming for 319 (not the S-Line encrypted version, or PowerG) then it should work.
Using RE101 alula resolution sensors and have and IQpanel2+ powerG panel. It’s the newest one pretty sure
Which sensors are you using with the RE524X, and which version of the IQ Panel 2 plus do you have? Or is it the original IQ Panel 2?
i have a Qolsys IQ2 panel but im using resolution wireless transmitter on it. will the RE524X work with these and repeat it back to the IQ2 panel? having range issue with some sensors
Hi Randy, Feel free to send some pictures of the panel to We'll be able to check which system you have and suggest compatible sensors.
You should expect about 200ft from your GC3 to the RE524X. If you had a 5800 series sensor or a 2gig sensor, you could use that to test the potential location of the translator to make sure it works in that location.
How far can I install my resolution RE524X from my panel 2gig gc3?
I want to add some wireless sensors to my system that was in the house when we bought it. It has a Resolution wireless transmitter, the control panel says Guardian when you wake it up. What can I get for door sensors? Total beginner with alarms.
Adding a tech tip; if you have installed a Qolsys IQ2 panel and are using the S-Line sensors, and are having range issues, after installing a RE524X, you will need to change the source of the sensors on the Qolsys panel to SecurityRF-319 as the RE524X will not repeat S-LIne sensors. It is a bit misleading as the RE524X will learn the S-line sensor, but only repeats at SecurityRF-319. As expected, when you are in sensor test and the sensor that is having range issues is borderline down with the floor noise, you will get a critical signal report (S-Line) directly from the sensor, and you will then get a "Good" Signal report (Assuming the repeater is in good range); the graphing of the sensor test will be a saw-tooth type of graph, one low and one high. Hope this helps someone with similar issues. Aloha!
I can't answer that question. Just because they use the same frequency, doesn't necessarily mean they are identical. 2GIG and Honeywell both use 345 MHz, but not all Honeywell panels can support all 2GIG wireless devices. There can be differences. You'd have to try it.
Sorry to ask again. Regardinf the RE524x, the Chineese generic 433Mhz sensors are equal to a DSC 433Mhz sensor?
Yes, you set a dial to tell the translator what frequency it will receive, in this case, DSC. Then you tell it with another dial what frequency it should output, in this case GE/Interlogix.
I have a lot of 433mhz generic door sensors. The resolution re524x will be able to recognize them and translate the signal to a Simon xti panel?
Yes, you are able to use the device as a repeater. When setting the selector knobs to the same company the device will function as a repeater. Checkout the information about this on the second page in the installation manual:
Could this device be considered range extender for 5800 sensors, including smokes and motion. For example, the panel is on one end of the home and the 5800 smoke and other sensors at the far end of the are not within signal reach. If I place one of these midway, it would repeat the 5800 sensors at the far end so they can reach the panel?
Yes, the SiX devices only work with a Honeywell Lyric Gateway or Lyric touchscreen system and there are no 3rd party translators fro SiX devices at this time.
That is correct. This will repeat 2GIG 345MHz and Honeywell 5800 series devices, not Honeywell SiX series devices. Currently there is no way to repeat SiX devices. They use a 2.4GHz WIFI signal which is not the same frequency as the 5800 series.
Does not work with honeywell sixpir
