Hi, DIYers. Sterling with Alarm Grid here. Today, we're going to show you how to program a 2GIG CO3-345 wireless carbon monoxide detector. The CO3 of three is a great detector to add to your 2GIG Go Control panel, as it will provide added value as you're no longer protecting just against burglary, but now you're protecting also against the odorless and invisible deadly gas of carbon monoxide. More and more jurisdictions in the country in fact, are requiring carbon monoxides in homes and commercial spaces. And while there are stand alone carbon monoxide detectors, if you already have a security system that can incorporate a carbon monoxide, it's a really nice option. So we're going to show you how to program this CO3 to your 2GIG Go Control. Just like with any zone programming, the first thing we want to do is hit Security, followed by Menu, and Tool Box. Now we are prompted for a code. This is not your master code that you use to arm or disarm. This is our programmer code. As long as it hasn't been changed, the code will be 1561. Now we're in our tool box. And if we hit the right arrow twice, we see the option for installer tool box. That is the menu that allows you to get into your system configuration and program your zones. Once you're in system configuration on the 2GIG panel, there is a question-based option for programming all of your parameters, whether it's zones or system features and options, you select the question you want to go to to program. In our case, the wireless zones are programmed under Q1 or question one. You can see at the top that it says select RF sensor number. And we have number 01 to 48, because our 2GIG Go Control supports up the 48 wireless zones. Each detector is typically one zone in the system. Our system has not been programmed with any sensors yet, so we're going to go ahead and choose zone number one. So at the top, we have Q1. Again, wireless zones. And then down here we have the zone that we're going to program. If we already had zones programmed, we could hit the right arrow to go to the next available Go to the next available zone. In our case, zero one is fine. We hit the down arrow, and we are asked for the RF sensor one type. So now we're on a q without a number. This is a subset question within q number 1. And we're on zone number one. It shows that at the top, RF sensor one. And they're asking for the type. We have a list of sensor types on our website with descriptions for which one they are. If you hit the right arrow, you can see, as they scroll through, entry exit one, entry exit two, and perimeter for doors and windows. We have interior follower for motions. And if we continue on down, we want to do 24-hour auxiliary alarm. I'm sorry, we want to do 24-hour carbon monoxide for this one, which is a specific zone type for our carbon monoxide detector. The 24-hour carbon monoxide zone type will activate whether the system is armed or disarmed. Very critical. If there's carbon monoxide in the house, of course we want to know about it, no matter what. The system doesn't need to be armed for this device to work. We hit the down arrow to lock that in, and now we are asked for the sensor equipment code. This is not really going to affect the way that the sensor talks to the system. But if you are monitored, this information goes out to alarm.com, then your alarm company will know exactly what type of device you're using. While a Honeywell wireless carbon monoxide would work with this system, we want to tell the panel and our monitoring company that we are using the two gig CO detector. So right there, we highlight that option and hit the down arrow, and now we're ready to program our serial number. On this device, just like all other two gig devices, or nearly all, we have our TX ID number displayed as a seven digit number, three digits dash four digits. We can type it in, or my personal preference and what we recommend, is that you hit Shift and then Learn. And now we're waiting for sensor number transmission. So this is a way to auto-enroll the device. The advantage of an auto-enrollment is that not only do you avoid user errors when typing in the number, but you're simultaneously programming the serial number and verifying that the sensor has a good battery and that it's functional. So basically, we close this device up. And then once it's closed, we're going to tamper it to auto-enroll the sensor. So with it closed, this hole lines up with the tab here. And if we were to then counter-clockwise and open, we'd have our 0710932 transmission ID number enrolled on the screen, confirming that we do have a good sensor and that it is programmed. If we hit OK, we can hit the down arrow. And now they're asking about the equipment age. If this is a brand new sensor, leave it on new. If this is an existing sensor, because of prior installation, you could highlight existing. In our case, brand new device. We're going to lock it in on new. Sensor one loop number-- just like with nearly every two gig device, we want to do loop number one. So we're going to leave it on that and hit the down arrow. And now we want to name our device or construct our RF sensor one voice descriptor. We have a chart that's on the back side of our two gig go control quick programming guide, which is described as our voice descriptors. And instead of keying in with an alpha keypad, we are literally choosing words from a preset library. Each word has a three digit number that's associated with that word. So if we want to call this our living room carbon monoxide detector, we hit Insert first, which puts our first word as abort. That's just the very first word in the library, why it defaults to abort. You could hit the right arrow to cycle through every word, but on this list, there's 286 words. And this list does get updated, so that would be a lot of scrolling. Instead, if we were to hit Insert and just type in-- for living, it would be 133. Room is 187, so we hit Insert to lock in living, 187 to change to room, Insert again to lock it in. And now we want carbon monoxide, which happens to be one three digit value, which will give us both words, carbon monoxide. We still have room for two more words, because each zone has five available voice descriptors to put in. But in our case, we have a nice descriptive voice descriptor for our zone, and we hit the down arrow to lock it in and advance to sensor one reports. If you wanted this to be just a local alarm, to sound the local alarm at the CO device, sound the alarm and our two gig go control panel and not go to the central station, you could do that by disabling the reporting. If your system is monitored, we would never encourage you to do that. You would always want it enabled. But if you did run this just as a local system without any kind of monitoring, you can do that. In our case, our system will be monitored, so we're going to choose Enabled by hitting the down arrow. Now we're on a question about supervision. It says sensor one supervised, zero for no and one for enabled, or rather zero for disabled and one for enabled. Supervision will tell the system about low battery issues and range issues on your CO 3 device. So instead of wondering, is this good? The system will periodically check and say, are you there and is your battery good? If it sees a low battery, it's going to tell you a zone one low battery message. Now you know you have to go in immediately, change out your battery, so that you will accurately detect carbon monoxide gas in your home. The supervision will also tell you whether or not this device is in range. So again, the panel's periodically checking out and saying, are you there? As long as the CO 3 says yep, I'm here, it goes on to the next zone and says, are you there? If this CO 3 never checks in because something environmentally changed and now it's too far from the panel, or it was damaged somehow and it just doesn't check in, the panel will alert you, hey, something happened to this zone or this sensor. Now you know to go take a look. Was it damaged? Was it removed? Was something introduced in the environment between the panel and the sensor? All of those things can cause a supervision problem, and with it supervised, you'll know about that in advance. Very important that you supervise your devices. If you hit the down arrow, it's going to ask you about chime. That is not something you would set up on a 24-hour device, because activation of this device or fault of this device will be an alarm whether you're armed or disarmed. So we just hit-- we leave it as disabled and hit the down arrow. And now we're on a summary screen for our CO 3 wireless detector. We can see that we properly learned it as a 24-hour carbon monoxide device. We've properly told it that it's a 2 gig CO detector. We have the proper serial number. We have that it is a brand new device, on loop number one, called living room carbon monoxide, where we will install our CO detector. Finally, we have reports enabled. Yes, we want to send these alarm events to our central station. Supervised? Yes, we want to know about low battery and range issues. And finally, chime disabled. So we are good. We didn't make any mistakes in our programming. If we hit skip, it advances to question number two. If you had more zones to program, you could hit go to, put in zero one, go back to question number one, advance to zone two, and continue on with your sensor programming. If this is the only sensor you're programming, you hit end. You see a summary screen for all of your system programming options. So maybe you had changed your dial delays or programmed in a central station phone number and then you did your program for your CO, so you have a chance to review those other changes you made. In our case, all we've done is program our CO 3, so we hit exit. If you've never worked with a two gig go control, do not be alarmed that the paneled screen goes dark. Anytime you make a programming change and save it and exit, the system reboots by design. You have to wait a few seconds, and then you'll hear the system say disarm, ready to arm. And then-- - System disarmed. Ready to arm. - And then you'll see a few seconds later our touchscreen keypad wakes back up, and we can use our CO 3 test button to ensure that we properly programmed our device. [ALARM BEEPS] - Or we could run the [INAUDIBLE].. - Carbon monoxide living room. Carbon monoxide. [ALARM BEEPS] - That is the noise that you hear when you have a zone type set to 24 hour carbon monoxide. You notice when I first pressed and held the test, [ALARM BEEPS] that we only heard the local, audible noise from the detector. Press and hold a bit longer and you [ALARM BEEPS] get the alarm to actually go to the panel. - System disarmed. - We have our default master code of 1111. Alarm report already transmission, cancel being sent. That just means that we've disarmed within the Cancel window. So we're canceling our alarm from going to central station. Since it was a test, that's what we want. We hit OK. We can see that we have this alarm on the screen, and we can clear it, because, of course, we did that by design. We're back to disarmed ready to arm. We have properly programmed our two gig CO 3-345 wireless carbon monoxide detector to our two gig go control panel. We hope that you've enjoyed this video.
