hey diy'ers i'm griffin with alarm grid and today i'm going to be explaining on installing the 2gig xcvr transceiver that helps your 2gig edge communicate to the 2gig image 3 sensor so let's go ahead and get into the process on installing the system so anything before you deal with any type of electronics we always want to power it down so one first thing is you'll need to locate the transformer which should be plugged into an outlet you would want to unplug it unless if you have the lt power cable which has a barrel connector you just simply disconnect the barrel connectors from the ends at the panel and then you would remove the battery connections now if you cannot locate the transformer or do not have an lt cable i do not recommend you unscrewing live wire for if you short those wires out or if they touch the panel you could damage your system or damage the transformer so the last step is if you can't get through any other means is to power the breaker down so what we're looking at today is we want to make sure that the system is completely powered down that way we don't cause any damage to the panel when messing with the wiring so we're going to be dealing with the transceiver we're going to concentrate first on the red and black wires so for the red wire it's got to go into the dc out and as you see right here this is dc up plus that is where the red wire is going to go we're going to tighten it up going to make sure you get it nice and firm that way you don't have any issues of it popping out while you're working with it then the black wire here is going to go into the ground terminal labeled gnd and that'd be this terminal right next to the dc out taking it out go okay so now what we're looking at here is we're going to concentrate on what we call the data wires the white wire will go to the tx over here so we're going to bring it flip it over and this is the reason why we want to make sure that our positive and ground are nice and tight so they don't pop out while we're trying to insert it into the hole okay now we're going to focus on the green wire which will go to what we call the rx terminal sometimes you have to bend it to get it where you need it to go once you slide it in there tighten it up now we have a nice good solid connection for all our wires that they ain't going to go nowhere now this here once you install it back onto the wall this would go through a hole in the back of the wall that drops down inside of the wall to hide the transceiver we have successfully installed the 2gig transceiver that will allow you to communicate to your 2gig image 3 sensors the next step that you would do is you would do the reverse process of powering up your system make sure you plug in the battery first and then reconnect your power so that is how you install the 2gig xcvr transceiver that will allow you to communicate to your image3 sensors if you have any questions or concerns please send us an email to support alarmgrid.com or please visit our website at alarmgrid.com if you found this content helpful please like and subscribe and make sure to hit the bell at the bottom of the video that way you can get future for notifications my name is griffin with alarm grid and happy to help
