hi DIYs Joey from a long road and today we're going to show you how to connect a wireless external siren to your link system and today we're going to use the 5800 RL wireless relay we have a honeywell power supply we also have a strobe instead of a siren because that would be really annoying if it's screen to my face dete one thing that you're going to want to know about the 5800 RL relay is that you want to power this up without anything connected just to make sure that it resets its relays back to the default mode if you do connect stuff to this and you power it up and it's incorrect and it tries to reset you could damage your relay and you may have to buy a new one so let's do that first to get this thing powered up it actually does need DC power so as you can see I have a couple wires that are already connected to it which we're going to use later or this one rather we're going to use later for right now though we're just going to connect our DC power to our Honeywell power supply over here now the Honeywell power supply as you can see it does have whips for an external battery which can leave they are which can let you operate this external siren if the power goes out we're gonna leave those unplugged for now if you do decide to use that which you should all you have to do is install a 12-volt battery of whatever type is compatible this is a 4 amp power but you can also use a 7 amp power if you choose so to get this thing powered up first thing I'm going to do is I'm going to connect the DC power input from the power supply to our relay so I just grab a screwdriver I'm gonna do red 2 plus I will do black to negative so they're nice and secure I'm going to go over here and power it up so as you can see we have lights on our power supply we also have lights on our relay which tells us that everything is at least powered on so I'm going to go ahead and plug it or unplug it so that we can do the remainder or the remaining connections all right so now what we have to do is on the relay we actually have to make a jump from the negative power input to terminal number two so I'm just going to loosen up the terminal real quick slip the wire in and that's good to go now as far as our siren strobe goes we're gonna have to take the negative coming off of that we're going to have to attach a terminal number three this is the comment on the first relay so I'm gonna loosen this up just slip it in and tighten it up all right now one of the funnier connections is that we actually have to take our hot or the positive from our siren and we have to put that on the positive output on our power supply the positive DC output make sure you don't connect it to the AC so I'm going to loosen this terminal up I've got this going under the terminal and nice and secure so as you can see there's not too many connections to make on this setup but you will want to make sure that you do follow the instructions and that all your connections are nice and and secure so with this set let's go ahead and power up great we do have lights the last thing that you're going to have to do on your relay to get it to communicate to your system is have it set to the same house ID that you have set on your link system you'll notice that on the right side of the relay we have dip switches on the bottom and in the relay instruction manual it'll show you the different combinations that you can use to to set up the house ID on the device I have it currently set up to house ID number one which is what I do have set on the link system so just to confirm that we have the house ID correct on a link system let's go into programming and double check so we do tools installer code for one one two program and then you'll see this option system type and as you can see our house or RF house ID code is one which is also what is set on the relay so it should be good so now let's back all the way out to the main menu whenever you see allow installer to re-enter programming you're gonna wanna hit yes back and now let's set off a panic alarm so I hold down the button I click fire and as you can see the strobe is following the the alarm if this was a siren it would be making noise right now and this is a super convenient way to add a wireless external siren to your link system it's going to disarm this to stop it from flashing and then clear the alarm and we're all set if you do have any questions about adding an external wireless siren to your link system about the relay the power supply or any alarm questions in general feel free to head over to our website give us a call at eight eight eight eight one eight seven seven two eight or send an e-mail to support at alarm grid com2 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
