Hi, DIYers. This is Frank at Alarm Grid. We're back in the Alarm Grid video lab working on the 2GIG GC3 Go Control Panel. Today we're going to show you how to program the 2GIG PIR1-345. This is the box here. We have the motion right here. It's a fairly compact unit designed to be corner mounted at a 90 degree field of view so that it will travel down both walls. The depth on this unit is 30 feet straight out from the corner of the wall and 50 feet across. So it's a 30 by 55 foot range. The pet immunity on this is up to 55 pounds. That means it's designed when a pet is not jumping on furniture or going up and down stairwells which can actually disrupt that pet immunity. But if a pet is just moving around normally at that size this motion is designed to avoid false alarms due to that. At Alarm Grid here to avoid any possible false alarms we really like to avoid using motions with pets. If there is an environment where you have a confined space that the pet does not occupy when the system is armed away, then that's fine. You can use that maybe in a basement or garage, bedrooms any where the pet may not be able to travel in and out of the system is armed away. Otherwise just keep it away from furniture and stairwells, and usually that does a good job of avoiding false alarms. So we're going to show you how to program this unit. This sensor is a seven digit serial number just as any other wireless sensor has. And this, in particular, uses Loop One. So we'll show you how to set that up on the system. There's two ways of enrolling any wireless sensor, one is to auto enroll. The other is to manually enter the serial number. If you have already installed this or it's an existing sensor that's already been mounted up into the wall, then we can show you how to just document the serial number. Or you can pop open the unit and get the serial number inside and manually enter it and set Loop One. Or you can auto enroll. We'll show you how to do both. So what we'll do now is jump into the installer tool box on the GC3. We'll hit the 2GIG symbol on the top right and then enter the installer code. Our default is 1, 5, 6, 1 on the GC3. If you've already changed it you can go ahead and use that. We'll use System Configuration here. And then we'll set this up as a Wireless Zone. So now that we're in here, we see that we've already set in a front door that was in previous video. We'll go down to a Wireless Zone Two. And it will show you our lists here on the right. As soon as you click into Sensor Type it'll bring that over here on the left and then we can start setting these in here. So the first thing here is determining how you want to set the sensor up. So motion detectors generally are set on two different types of response types. The most common would be Interior Follower. And Interior Follower zone essentially is disabled when you arm the system stay. So if you're arming stay meaning that you're staying at the home, this will be disabled, so you can move around the home. However, if you arm away, it will allow you to walk in front of it during the exit delay period on the way out. On the way in it will follow the entry delay period. So that's what follower means. So if you open your front door and that's set an entry exit, and this motion is not in direct view of that door then you can-- then it will allow that entry period. So if you're entry delay is 30 seconds, this motion will not trip for 30 seconds. It basically follows that. Now if somebody gained access to the home and one of the entry exit doors was not opened, and this was tripped during armed away it would be an instant alarm. So that's why this is a little bit more secure than the other setting which we can show you here. So Interior Follower's is type four, the most common. If we scroll down, to 10, you'll actually see Interior With Delay. So entry with delay is a little bit different. It's similar in the sense that it is disabled during armed stay to avoid false alarms when you're inside the home for moving around. So it's the same there. Where it's different is when this detects motion during armed away after the exit period has expired and if somebody were to gain entry or walk in somewhere once this trips it will allow the-- it will be mapped to the entry delay one period. So that's set to 30 seconds for the doors. It will also be 30 seconds for this. Where that can come in handy is if you're using this-- maybe you're using this in a garage or in an area where there will not be a door opened before this is tripped. So if this is in an entry point and that entry door does not have a contact on it to allow the system to know that an entry door is opened then that's where you set this Interior With Delay. Also if the motion is in direct view of an entry door looking directly at it as that door opens if the motion will trip before the panel can get that signal knowing that the contact has been opened there's that fine line there if it's looking directly at the door. That's usually why you want to set it on Interior With Delay to avoid that false alarm. If that fall doesn't get to the panel before the panel notifies this that there is a fault, then it'll trip immediately if you have a set on Interior Follower. So that's why Interior With Delay is a little bit more flexible. If you want to avoid false alarms, in general, you can feel free to set all your motions to Interior With Delay. We prefer setting them to Interior Follower unless they are in those particular circumstances where they're looking at the entry door. Or you would potentially through normal use trip this motion before opening an entry exit door. So those are the two most common zone types. You could set this as a perimeter zone if you wanted to. That would mean during armed stay and arm away. It's an instant alarm. Maybe you have this in a secured closet where no matter what when the systems armed you want it to trip an alarm immediately, you can do that. You can also set it as an Entry Exit Zone and if you wanted it to be enabled during Armed Stay Mode as well. So for today's purposes, we're going to set this to the most common type which is Interior Follower. So this means disable during Armed Stay. Instant during away unless there is an entry exit door open. So we'll move down to Sensor Equipment. You'll notice that when you set Interior Follower the equipment automatically sets this to a motion. OK. So you'll see Motion here. Motions already selected. If it wasn't you could toggle that but it does do it automatically when you send an interior type. Equipment code. You can either manually enter in the code using the guide and the number that is associated with this particular unit. Or you can cheat here and use the three horizontal bars in the top right. And you'll see 2GIG PRI with Pet Immunity. That is 0, 8, 6, 9. So that is this sensor here. We can then move down to the Serial Number. So this is where we have two different ways of doing this. If you already have installed your motions and you documented the serial number, this is where you can manually enter it in. If you have not installed it like we have not today then you can pop open this unit by using a Phillips head screwdriver. We'll open up, remove the screw and we can pop open the panel-- or pop open the motion. You'll see that out of the box it does not come with the battery. I have the battery sitting separately here. This is a CR123A so Panasonic battery. Energizer CR-- the Energizer CR123 will work as well. So when you see-- you'll see the empty battery slot here which is where you can put this in. As soon as this goes in, it will put this into a learning mode where it'll be live for a few minutes. We have a couple of jumpers here. There's a jumper for 55 or 35 pet immunity. That's the amount of pounds that it'll allow. So the 35 pound pet immunity will basically make this a little bit less-- more sensitive to pets. Then there's a general sensitivity jumper where if this was to be moved it's on low by default on the two right pins. You can move it to high on the left two pins. Usually, we recommend just keeping this on default. These usually are fine if you're in a premise where you really want high sensitivity and there will be no pets at all. You could move this jumper over to a high and then jump-- it doesn't matter where this is once this is set to high basically eliminates the pet immunity. So in here you'll see there's TXID code. So you can either manually enter the serial number or you can learn it by pressing the tamper switch on the left hand side here. You have to have your battery in first. So we've put in our battery, plus side on the-- plus side on the left negative on the right. We already discussed our jumpers here. We have our pet community jumpers on the left and then the sensitivity on the right. If there's no pets you can set the sensitivity to high by moving the jumper to the left. So here is where we can learn it in. So we'll go right into the Learn Mode. It'll say listening. We can press this tamper button and release. [BEEP] And it will say sensor received. It'll show that 0, 1, 1. It will actually show the seven digit number. For due diligence, you can double check it but it usually-- I've never seen to be wrong. So you can use auto enroll it here and then hit Accept. Again if you already have this mounted feel free to manually program this. It does lead to more user error but if you already have it installed, then that's the easiest thing to do. So you can just document them as you install them and then come back here and program them. When you auto enroll the motion it always requires-- still require setting the loop. By default, it'll be a Loop One which is where you want it. But just in case if it does ever jump over to a different loop that's where you'd want to adjust it. So the loop number here is important. You want this to be Loop One, OK. So once you've done that you can snap this shut here, we'll take the top corner basically hook the top in first. And then snap the bottom shut. And we can continue programming here. I'll put this motion down for a moment. So in all of our programming videos for zones, we discussed Transmission Delay. This is a way to hold an alarm signal from sending out to the central station. We always want to disable this. By default, it is enabled. What this means is if that motion were to be tripped and the alarm goes off then if this Transmission Delays enabled the system will hold that signal for the period of time that is programmed to the transmission delay in panel programming. We'll have another video on setting that selection. We always recommend disabling this so that your central station-- if you have monitoring it knows that the motion was tripped. There are other measures you can put in place as far as verification phone numbers to prevent false alarms. So this is not usually the way that we would like to do it. If you're in an area where your County Sheriff or City Police Department is very strict on false alarms, and you're trying to put in any measures possible to avoid false alarms, and you're willing to sacrifice the central station from knowing when there's alarm. If it's disabled during this transmission delay period, then you can enable this just keep it on enabled mode and that's fine. Just make sure you have that discussion with your alarm company. For today because we preferred to disable that we'll keep it disabled. Go into Voice Descriptor. We'll hit edit Voice Descriptor. Here is where we can type in everything we want the zone to be labeled as. So we'll use this as our living room motion. So I'll start typing in living room, and you'll see here on the top it'll show everything that's in the library. We'll put living room here and or living rather. It's very important to choose a word out of this category up top. You can create custom words but they will not announce out of the panel. So if you plan to have a chime with voice enunciation-- a setting that we'll set in just a moment here. It will not announce a name that is customized and not listed here on this white bar. So that's why we prefer to try and fit within these categories. So living room. I'll start typing in motion. We can put motion there. So now we have living room motion. Those are all words that were in the library so they will announce. We'll click Done. And then Sensor Reports. We always want the sensor to report. This is a global feature that basically will disable all reporting. What that means is if this is tripped do you ever want it to report and log to your central station. If you disable this it will not send that out to the central station. If you have alarm dotcom service and you wanted this motion to simply send you a text and not send anything to the central station you could disable this reporting here. And that way would avoid any false alarms or things like that. But it would generate a text for you each time if you customize it that way on alarm.com. For today will enable it assuming that it's in our living room and when we're away we want it to report to central station if there is an intrusion. So it's Sensors Supervised. Supervision, RF Supervision is a way for the panel to keep tabs on this device. So if this sensor is removed or compromised or maybe there's some sort of RF interference in the area and this isn't able to communicate back to the system we want to know about it. We want to know that it's offline. So that's why we want to keep this enabled so that this sensor is indeed supervised. The last selection here Sensor Chime with voice. With doors and windows, we usually set up the chime. With motions I'm not a fan of it. It depends on where it is. If it's maybe in your garage and you want to know when people are coming in and out in the garage that might be a good-- that might be a situation where you want to be notified of a fault each time. The problem with setting this is even when the system is disarmed and you're moving throughout your home this is going to chime every time it detects motion. There is a battery saving time out period on here that after the second time it's tripped it'll go to sleep. So we won't necessarily fault each time it detects motion or motion is occurring in front of it because it may be asleep. But it will get annoying and personally, I just recommend keeping it disabled. If you want to enable it, you can go for it just hit Voice Only. You can do Chime Only's or both together. So you just select that here and then that's it. So we're done with this zone. We would Return to System Config. You'll see the wireless zones here is an orange that means that there's been a change made. It'll show you the summary of everything that we've done. The Interior Follower's zone type. The Motion Detector, the 2GIG PIR, Motion with Pet Immunity. The serial number, the loop number which is always Loop One for the sensor. And the name and everything else here that we've gone over we'll save that. And then you can go ahead and install this unit. There is a bag of clips here. There's a few different parts that you can use to attach to the back plate to the wall. These are very handy. You can use two sided tape to apply to the sides here and kitty-corner it in the wall-- the corner of the wall if you want as well. But these can be handy so feel free to use these as well. Before we're done, you always want to put the screw back in. So on the bottom of this unit, we want to get that screw started. And we can just use a screwdriver to tighten that up. That way that never pops open and the battery doesn't fall out or anything like that. So now you're good to go. You have your 2GIG PIR1-345 programmed. If it's already installed great, if you need to install it go ahead and install it. And then you can do your testing. We'll have another video on our channel showing you how to test this motion in the walk test mode.
