hidey-ho is joy from a long road and today we're going to show you how to connect a siren we're going to use a strop today to a closest 16f which is a hardwired to Wireless converter and we're going to have this run from our system our IQ too well we're basically going to do we have a strobe right here we have this connected to our hardwired 16f we're going to program this into our IQ 2 over here and then we're going to activate the strobe using our IQ to the koalas 16f is a great device to use it converts hardwired zones into wireless zones and then lets your IQ to pick them up so it saves a ton of time with installation and really one of the biggest benefits to this to this device is that you can attach a hardwired siren to the unit today we have a strobe on there and you're gonna see that the strobe doesn't work as well as a siren but it really it's meant for a siren to be connected to it just to give you another point of sound if there's an alarm that occurs in the house now there's a couple particular steps that you have to do to get this programmed into the system as you can see we already have connected our strobe to the device and these go on these two terminals right down here you'll see in the installation manual points this out clearly but it's to the the negative goes to the ground and the positive goes to the out under siren then there's a jumper that's going from aux on the out portion to the in on the siren portion as long as we have that set up our siren should activate now this learns in like any other wireless device so on the system I'm going to slide down from the top and click on settings advanced settings our default code is 2 2 2 2 click on installation devices security sensors and then auto learn sensor now the 16 F we actually have to take the tamper wire out of the terminal and then reinsert it to get it to be picked up by the system the first thing that I have to do to get this to learn to the system is click the eol button over here on the right so I'm going to press that down and then I'm gonna let go when I see this light illuminate now what I have to do is I actually have to remove the tampered jumper from one of the terminals to get it to learn into the system so I'm going to loosen up one of those terminals and as you can see when the connection became loose the wire moved and the system picked up the 16f so I'm just going to retighten up this terminal on our tamper and I'm gonna say ok on the system and on here what I want to do is I want to change the sensor type to a hardwired translator with that set really good to go I'm going to click on add new and as you can see the 16f was programmed into the system so now if I click home to go back when I do a siren test on the system we should see this strobe illuminate I'm going to slide down from the top click on settings do advanced settings - - - - system tests panel tests scroll down sirens and there you go as you can see the strobe doesn't really work that well with the 16 F but you can hear that little relay clicking quickly that's actually the relay for the siren if you had one connected to the system now before you go out and purchase a 16 F for your IQ 2 you're going to want to make sure that the RF pick version of your IQ 2 is at least 11 point 1 point for G 2 or higher if it's below that there's nothing you can do you actually can't update this to get it up to a higher version you have to purchase the system that is a this that is this version or higher to use the 16 F with it to check to see if your system is of that version or not though on our system we're going to click the back arrow we're gonna click the back arrow and then actually we'll just go back to the main menu to show you exactly where this is main menu slide down from the top do settings advanced settings to 2 to 2 I'm going to click on about I'm gonna go to hardware and if I scroll down you'll see the RF pip version is right here and our system is 11 point one 0.5 - G - 6 which tells us that this system is compatible with the the Qualis 16 off if you do have any questions though about connecting a siren to the 16 F Qualis the system or alarm systems in general feel free to give us a call at eight at eight eight one eight seven seven two eight head over to our website or send us an e-mail to support at alarm red comm did enjoy the video feel free to subscribe and if you want to be notified when we post future videos hit the notification button below and we'll send you an update when we do so thanks for watching and have a great day
