Adding a 2GIG GB1 to the 2GIG GC3



hey di wires jet with alarmgrid here today we're going to discuss how you can add a 2gig gb1 glass break detector with a 2gig gc3 system normally when you're going and programming the glass break detectors or any sensors in general you want to make sure that you have the installer code available the installer code is extremely important for these alarm systems especially if you want to go ahead and add sensors or add any devices because that allows you to into the programming to get into the necessary menus to go ahead and set that up now once you go ahead and set up a glass break detector or even just the 2gig GB one in general you want to make sure that you're testing it out to ensure that this glass break detectors is picking up the correct signals and it is actually working correctly now if you want to go ahead and test it out you can use a class Peck simulator which one of them is called the Honeywell FG 107 this is a glass break simulator specifically built to work with the Honeywell sensors but it can also work with two big sensors as well there are a couple of other compatible ones available too if you want to go ahead and check those out just check out our webpage there's a couple of them and what the one that we know that works for sure is the Honeywell FG 107 now if you wanted to go ahead and program the 2gig GP one glass break detector into the 2gig gc3 you're just going to follow these simple steps so the first step is obviously you want to wake up your screen if it's black and/or if it's blank and what you want to do is at the top right of the screen you're going to hit the 2gig logo and this is going to immediately take you into the install the toolbox now this is always going to ask you for the code and this is where you want to type in the installer code so the default installer code for this system is one five six one and then you're going to go into system configuration you're going to go into wireless zones and now it's going to take it to all the different zones that you have set up or even not set up now just as a just as a side note for this whenever you're looking at the zones that are available you the ones that are available are going to be great outs and they're gonna be almost transparent any zones that are currently configured they're going to show up as bold so for instance front door that is bold so that means that we do have a center set up on their zone - it is not Bo this grayed out so that means we don't have anything on that so we're gonna go ahead and use Zone two so once you've gone to that zone you just gonna press edit zone excuse me and now it's going to take you to the programming menu so this is where you want to change all or configure all these settings to make sure that it does work with the glass break detector make sure everything is set correctly on the right side of the screen is where you would go ahead and input the different selections so as you can see it pulls up the different menus when you go through them now if the first one is Center type this is basically setting up whether how you want this glass trick detected to work right so for instance if you if this was a door contact you would set the center type as entry exit zone or entry exit for glass pick detectors you would normally set those up as a perimeter sense here because perimeter sensors the way they're set up is that if if that some sure is triggered it's going to immediately trigger the alarm you don't normally want to have an entry exit zone or a setting on there because if someone were to break the glass this has set up an entry exit it triggers an entry or an entry delay and it doesn't trigger the alarm correctly until that specified time runs down so for these you want to set these up as perimeter excuse me so that it triggers the alarm immediately so for this if you know the to judge to judge a two-digit number for it set your time then you could just type that in or you can hit the menu button on the top right you're going to bring the drop-down for all the different options so for this we're just gonna tap perimeter and the substrate type number is 0-3 so if you knew that you just type it zero three or you could do what I just did once you've done that you can hit the down arrow it's going to take you to equipment code this is basically setting up the sensor - or setting the system to know what sensor this is so if you know the equipment code you can either type it in or you can go ahead and press the Menu button and scroll until you see a glass break detector so there is two good glass break detector right here but I just want to scroll through and make sure that there's not one set specifically for the 2gig gb1 in which I do not see that so we're going to go ahead and set this to to be a glass break detector so now once we've chosen to glass break detector you can just get at the down arrow and then it's going to take it to serial number so this is where you want to enter the the serial number for the glass break detector to make sure the system is able to detect that this is the correct one so basically there's two ways of doing this you can either manually input the serial number within the box up here or you can learn it in and just auto-enroll the the information so for this instance we're just going to auto and roll it so if you want to do that you just press one and it puts us into a listening mode and all you have to do for the two qgb one is just take it off the back plate and it picks up immediately so as you can see it pulls up a serial number right here whenever you are Auto enrolling sensors you want to make sure that you're matching up the serial number to 100% confirm that that is the correct sensor that you're trying to enroll so this shows 101 zero two one seven if you look right here it's very tiny but if you look right here it's very small but you can see the TX ID which is 101 zero two one seven so that is matching up with this and once you've confirmed that you just press accept and if you want you could just close up the center again make sure that is good once that's confirms you just can hit the down arrow again and take you to smart areas assignment this is where you would go ahead and set up the sensor to a specific partition so if you have two partitions or three partitions let's say you want to set this apart three you just have s3 or if you don't have any partitions you just have this setup normally you just go to partition one and just leave it the way it is once you're done with that it hit the down arrow and then you have equipment age so this is tech this is basically telling the system if this is a brand new excuse me glass break detector or if this is an existing one that you've already used so for this we're just gonna keep it as new and then you're gonna hit the down arrow and then we have sensor loop so the loop number is very important for these for the assumptions or sensors in general because if you have the incorrect loop set then the sensor is not going to work correctly so if you go ahead and pull that sensor the panel's not going to pick it up and mediate or not pick it up in general sometimes so you want to make sure that that loop number is correct for glass break detectors and the gb1 in general it would be a loop one so you can hit the down arrow and you go to transmission delay this is whether you want the signal for the sensor to transmit immediately or if you want it to be a delay period so the delay period to be for about thirty seconds so if the alarm were to be triggered there's no transmission that's being sent out for 30 seconds if you have it disabled then it'll send out the the signal immediately and then it center stage won't be able to know for this we're just can keep it enabled for the sake of the video and then we're gonna hit the down arrow one more time you're gonna go to voice descriptor so this is where you want to setup a certain zone description for the sensor so like let's say for instance this is in your living room or maybe even in a bedroom right so if you want to go ahead and set that up you just press edit voice descriptor and you're going to go ahead and type in the different words to be able to set this up now you can't just type in any word you would type in the word and the system will pick it up for you and you basically just add it in there so let's say this is for the bedroom or a master bedroom so we're going to type in master and as you see it picks it up automatically so master bedroom and we're just gonna say glass break so glass actually showed it earlier but we got glass break right now we have four words describing this but you can't set up the six words if you wanted to but for this we're just going to leave it as master bedroom glass break so once you've done that you press done take you back to this screen and then you can hit the down arrow and then you have sensor reports so this is where you would set that your you wouldn't able this if you want the signals or the sensor to send out signals over to the Central Station directly or if you want the alarm student system to transmit this alarm signals to the Central Station or if you didn't want to if you disabled it then you wouldn't have any alarm signals sent out if you have it enabled then it will it will report to the Central Station then you're gonna hit the down arrow and go to Center supervised this is the supervision for the sensor so if you want to make sure that the sensor is being supervised you have that enabled if you don't care about it or if you don't want it to enable then you just disable it then we're gonna go to sensor chime which is the last and final option for this for the centuries this is if you wanted this or if you wanted the system to chime or voice enunciate if the sensor were to be tripped so normally you would set the sensor chimes for like door contacts or sometimes maybe even motion detectors to let you know that these certain areas are being accessed or the doors are being opened or anything like that glass break detectors normally you don't want to set up a sensor trial on it because these are meant for per owner to trigger the alarm immediately but if you want to go ahead and set that up you just scroll here on the right and you can see the different options so we have chime chime - chocolate voice if you wanted to set that up you just choose it and that's it so for this instance we're just gonna leave it disabled or for this programming video we're just gonna leave it disabled but you that up if you want to now once you have everything programs and you've confirmed everything is good then you could just exit what you're doing so you can either press back to zones which will take you back to obviously the zones that you're trying to do program you can hit the skip button to go to the next sensor start programming that sensor or you can hit return to system configuration so if the latest we're just going to tap on that and then it takes us to this window so to save any changes or discard or anything like that just gonna hit the back arrow and it's gonna bring it this window so it's going to show you everything that you've programmed if you've confirmed everything is good then you can either press save or you if you've confirmed everything as good you can press save if you want to go ahead and edit anything you can press go back you know take you back to the programming for the sensor or you could just discard it and now save any changes for this we'll just press save and you'll take you back to the main screen and a do a quick reboot but basically you now have the to kick gb1 programmed into the two 2gig gc3 and that is how you set up a 2gig GP one with the 2gig gc3 system if you have any further questions about the 2gig gc3 or alarm systems in general please contact
