hi DRS gentle from alarm grid and today we're going to show you how to wire motion detectors to the panel we're also going to show you how to connect to motion detectors to the same zone now this is to Wired motion detectors on one's own this is a useful technique that you can use it works on just about any wire alarm system and the reason that it's useful is that you can have two separate motion detectors they'll both work as alarm zones and they connect and only occupy one zone on your system the downside to this is that if either motion detector triggers it's not going to tell you specifically which motion detector went off so you won't have that fine-grain information about exactly which motion detector triggered the zone but you can save a zone by attaching to or motion two or more motion detectors to one zone so let's show you how to wire up a motion detector in the first place and then we're going to join it to a nother motion detector and have it all the back to the one zone so we have a vista-21ip panel right here and we've taken most the wires off to make it really simple and so that you can see where we're going to make our connections and I have this wire setup for later but you can see we have a four wire connector right here we have the black on the red on the 12-volt power and then we have the yellow wire on the zone one plus now if we're going to just connect one motion detector I'm going to connect the other zone wire to the Z one - and this is the first Zone on the panel so I'm just going to screw this in and then at the motion itself this is the DSC LC one five one motion detector this is the front plate on it I've taken it off because we have to get to the terminals so in this motion we actually have a port where we can insert the wires from the back into so I'm just going to slip these through and we're good to go and you're going to want to make sure that everything is off before you do this as you will be working with the power connection for the motion and you don't want to short anything our system is fully powered down so now the wires in here so if I only wanted to connect this one motion you can see we have plus 12 volt and a minus 12 volt so that would be our power connection so let me just throw these wires in real quick then if we wanted this is the only motion on this particular zone we would just have to wire one of these to the common and one to the normally closed so I'm going to put the green on the common and the yellow is on the normally closed and now we have our single motion detector connected you can add a resistor to this motion in line on the zone wires if you want to supervise it but for most single device security installations you don't really have to worry about that we are going to add a resistor on to our second motion when we connect that it's always a good idea to add a resistor on your years old and loop when you're doing two motions on a one's own because there's more than one device on the zone and you're going to want to know if something happens with the wiring so to prepare for our second motion we're going to have to remove one of these wires and as you can see we have our green on our z1 - and again this doesn't really matter right now because it's just a a zone terminal so the polarity it doesn't have anything to do with power but let's just keep continuity going throughout the whole loop so if we have our z1 on our - I'm going to undo our yellow from the z1 plus so now when the zone connection comes back from our second motion it's actually going to land first zone terminal so in our motion detector as we've disconnected the yellow let's disconnect the yellow from here so we just have our green wire connected to the common on the motion and to the z1 - on our panel so now we have to take one wire from this motion and get it over to the second motion we have another DSC motion right here this guy is called the encore ec3 o1 it's not a wired motion I've taken the cover off so that we can get to our terminals so I have another wire setup right here I'm gonna take this guy I'll slip it through this port and I'm going to connect this wire to our normally closed wire that we took the other wire off of so get that tight right so now this motion is pretty much all set so I'm gonna put this guy down and we're going to come over to our second margin now when you have a second motion it will need to get power from the panel somehow what I've done is I've actually made another power whip right here for this second motion just to show that we're going to connect it if you can't get a wire back to the panel itself you can't always jump off of the other motion to get your power just so you know so let me insert this in the back and I'll make my power connection I can see I have a 12 volt and a GND so the 12 volts going to be the positive and the GND is going to be the negative so I've actually was able to get pulled the wires and both with the terminals just going to tighten it down now as this is the second motion we have to connect the wire from the normally closed on our first motion and then we're going to have to connect a wire from this motion back to our panel back to our open zone terminal so let me slip the wire from the first motion this guy and this is coming from the normally closed I'm going to connect this to the common and then from this motion I have another wire setup and on this one I've installed a 2k resistor in line so that this whole loop throughout our motions will be supervised if anything happens to the wiring connections on these motions the system's gonna see that the resistance got interrupted and it's going to tell me that there's an issue which is again is very helpful when you're doing these these sort of setups that have more than one device because you're going to want to know if something goes wrong so this one I'm going to slip this and through the back and I'm going to connect this wire to our normally closed farm connections are tight then over here we're going to take I've attached the resistor to our wire with a dolphin connector these are really good to use you just twist the wires together slip it in crimp it and then it gives you a nice secure connection I'm going to insert this under our zone one and then we can pop our covers back on and we would have to program to make them work as we want but we have them both wired up and ready to go now on this system after we program it these two motions are going to both function on the same zone so the both be able to trigger an alarm but if one of them goes off we won't know which one actually triggered as they're both going back to these same zone terminals as a side note whenever you do install devices like this or devices in general that have a resistor it is the recommended practice to put the resistor at the device that's farthest away from the panel this will give you true supervision of the wiring for that zone reason being wherever you put that resistor that's how far the supervision goes so if we install the resistor on the terminals on the panel we won't know if something happens to the wire integrity on the line if we put the resistor where the device is that resistance is going to be on the whole line all the way back to the panel and if anything happens to that wire that'll tell us that there is a trouble with that zone so if we go and look at our stuff over here we have our two motion detectors let's say that this motion is the one that's farthest away from the panel and this is the one that we want to use then to supervise our wires back to the panel all you have to do to do this is take off one of the legs of the zone wiring pop it out take your resistor splice it off and then ideally you want to use a bee connector or some kind of secure connector to really make that connection nice and tight crimp it down now our resistor is attached very securely fold the wires so they fit in your motion and then take your other leg of the resistor now we're going to slip that into the terminal for the zone where we took the other wire out of if you do this when you first install the motion you don't have to remove the wires and go through the headache that I'm going through so that's the recommended way to do it but either way it works now with our resistor at the motion that's furthest away from the panel we're gonna have supervision from that motion all the way back to the panel which is the best way to install your resistor a lot of times you may find that it's just not convenient or that you're not able to get to that advice remember the device is made it doesn't really fit a resistor easily if you do put it on the panel will work just know that that supervision isn't gonna be supervising the whole line that's how you wire motion a wired motion detector to your wide alarm system and how you connect a second one in series so you can have two motions on one's own terminal if you do have any questions about this process give us a call at eight at eight eight one eight seven seven two it head over to our website wmur.com or send us an e-mail
