hidey-ho iris joy from alarm grid and today we're going to talk about how to enroll your sp1 keypad to the gc3 system using the access point mode before we get into that though let's go over what this mode is and how it can help you in an installation it's a pretty cool feature on your GC 3 if you enable the access point mode the GC 3 itself will propagate its own Wi-Fi network and you'll actually be able to connect the Wi-Fi keypads the sp1 or the sp2 directly to the GC 3 using this mode this is super convenient for installation let's say you're putting the GC 3 in a place that doesn't have a Wi-Fi network that's already there you can turn on the AP mode and then you can connect your wireless or Wi-Fi keypads to the system while the GC 3 is still able to communicate with 2 alarm com using its cellular communicator the downside to using the access point mode on the GC 3 is that you won't be able to use the Wi-Fi communicator to communicate to alarm comm so if you are looking to do a dual path setup you won't be able to use via the AP mode dual path is when you have Wi-Fi and cellular enabled so it sends a signal on both paths of communication up to alarm comm and then alarm comm gets rid of the one that gets there second again though the access point mode is super convenient and it can help in a pinch if you were installing this in a place that doesn't have an existing Wi-Fi network and you want to get one of these Wi-Fi keypads connected to the system so first let's go over how to enable the AP mode on the GC 3 so we're gonna click on our 2gig symbol we're going to enter the default installer code 1 5 6 1 I'm going to click on network settings and then I'm going to click on access point and as you can see there's a little toggle switch right here I'm going to click enable it says the wireless access point started successfully ok and as you can see we got our network name which is the SSID our network passcode and the IP address so I'm gonna click Save access point settings and it says that it successfully started so now we're going to connect the SP 1 keypad to the GC 3 through it's access point so on our SP 1 I'm going to click on wireless and as you can see the network name 2gig gc3 which is the network name that's being propagated shows up so I'm going to click it and then it's going to ask me for the wireless password and as you can see the wireless password is nine five four nine three three five zero nine five click Next it's going to start to communicate with it there you go now we have joined it to the AP Network that's being propagated by the gc3 so after this we're actually going to have to pair it to the system so I'm going to click back on the GC three back again I'm going to click on system configuration and keypads keypad number one is what we want to select and over I'm going to click the menu on the right-hand side and that's going to bring up the Edit so I'm going to click enable for keypad used we have an sp1 touchscreen which is what we want and then we want to do device ID so this is actually the way that we're going to pair it in so I'm going to click pair on the G c3 and I'm going to click hair on the sp1 I'm gonna have to click it a second time there it is parent key serial number and it says that the sp1 is connected the rest of these options you can choose to enter information them if you want equipment age that doesn't have anything to do with the system or the operation smart areas assignment we're not going to go into emergence keys are the panic buttons if you want them to show up on the keypad or not and the voice descriptor you can enter a name for the keypad so if we want we can do wireless keypad we'll click done we'll click return to system configuration and as you can see this is highlighted showing us that we did make some edits here I'm gonna click back and it's going to show us all our changes I'm going to click Save which should confirm everything and now when I go back on our sp1 we should see the gc3 show up after it synchronizes with the system and as you can see after it synchronizes we have the exact same screen as the gc3 the sp1 is now communicating what the G see three on its access point mode and it'll work just fine that's how you connect an sp1 to the GC three using its access point mode we have any questions about the keypad the system or how to perform this function feel free to head over to our website wwlp.com give us a call at eight at eight eight one eight seven seven two eight or send an email to support at alarm grid comm did enjoy the video feel free to subscribe if you want to post or update you when you post future videos at the notification button below and I'll send you an update when we do so thanks for watching and have a great day
