hi diy-ers this is michael from alarm grid and today i'm going to be showing you how to delete a door and window sensor or window sensor from your 2gig edge security system it's nothing really fancy here it's um just the same process that you would follow to delete any zone on your 2gig edge um so there are 100 zones available on this now when you're deleting a zone you're not exactly deleting it the zone still exists on the security system you're merely resetting it so that way you're clearing out any of the program sensor information so that way the zone can be used with a new sensor or the same sensor if you decide to reprogram it um so to show you right now we have a door and window contact sensor here and it's currently enrolled you see i've just opened the door window and you see it shows that the system's in a not ready to arm state this sensor is open the door window is open right now if i close it then you see that it goes back into the ready to arm state there's also an option if i don't want to delete the sensor entirely maybe it's just this one time i want to leave the door window open i can actually bypass that sensor so that way it's ignored by the system for that arming session but then it can be used again later in a later arming session without having to reprogram the sensor entirely which can be convenient just to show you how to do that you can click the settings icon down here in the bottom right corner we can enter in our installer code default one five six one or you can use your master code default one one one one but usually changed and there's a bypass sensors menu and we can bypass the sensor so that way once i do this that sensor that one that i just used it's ignored by the system so if i go back um it's i've just bypassed the sensor and you'll see right now that it's nothing happens we don't get the fault it's ignored by the system right now because the sensor is bypassed so if i want to go and un-bypass the sensor we'll cancel the bypass click the button there then we have to provide our code we'll do our master code this time ours is at the default we should usually change it though one one one one and there our sensor is no longer bypassed but let's say that we do want to delete the sensor fully we don't want it programmed on the system anymore we don't want to just do a temporary bypass we want to fully clear out the sensor which is what we're here for today how to delete the door window window sensor like i said it's the same as any other sensor on the system the same process that you would follow so let's get into it if we want to clear out the sensor reset the zone here's what we're going to do i'm going to start from the main screen in the system we're going to click the settings icon in the bottom right corner we're going to enter in our installer code which ours is at the default of one five six one and then we're gonna scroll down here and we're gonna choose installer toolbox and then we can choose panel programming and then we have wireless zones and we have a couple zones programmed right now we have our door and window sensor here we also have uh it looks like a smoke detector here so let's say we want to delete the door and window sensor it's same process no matter what type of sensor it is but in our case we have a door window sensor so um we have it selected we've selected the the zone zero zero once the first zone on the system first wireless zone on the system and um so what we're gonna do we're just gonna click this reset zone button in the bottom left corner here and it's gonna ask us for confirmation because once we do this we can't undo it so there's no going back we will have to reprogram the sensor entirely from scratch so let's choose reset and you see that all the information the sensor type the txid it's all been cleared out it's all been reset as if this sensor doesn't exist anymore and there is no real save button on here we can just go back out to the main screen by repeatedly pressing the return arrow in the upper right corner and you see our sensor now nothing happens it's not rolled with the system anymore if we want to use it with the system we would have to reprogram reprogram it from scratch which that's a different topic in itself but we have reset the zone so that way it can now be used with a different sensor so the zone is open it's not so much that we deleted the zone we have reset the zone so that we can use it with a different sensor so this is more of a permanent solution rather than just doing a temporary bypass this sensor is now foreign to the system it's not involved with the system anymore so that is how you would go about deleting a door and window sensor from your 2gig edge security system um you just like i said go into the settings icon you go into zones and you can choose the reset zone button like i showed you and it's pretty much the same for any sensor on the 2gig security system so if you have any questions about deleting zones on your 2gig edge you have any questions about the 2gig edge system in general or you have any questions about alarm monitoring services send an email to
