hello DIYs Griffin with alarm grid here and today I'm going to demonstrate on how to program a wireless zone for a 128 BPT and also set up the wireless receiver and program the device address for the 5881 so let's go ahead and let's get started so we're going to start with the 5881 this is your standard wireless receiver in order to use wireless devices such as the 5816 which we're going to use for demonstration a couple things I want to go over whenever you open it you're going to see this blue wire here we do not use that blue wire we only use the black green yellow and red wire for connections to the ECP bus on Terminal 6789 and then we set the addresses by these dip switches here okay there are five dip switches so what we do is address 7 dip switch 2 3 and 4 is on and on is away from the number office towards the number the reason why we use address 7 is it's the highest number that it can go and it frees up using using your lower addresses for your sailor communicator and touch screen keypads so technically the plug-in for the 5881 is keyed for only one way so you can only install it in one way there's a little couple of notches on the bottom of it there so that way you don't plug it in wrong and reverse the connections and so it just gets connected in here this little saw right there all right so now the next part we're going to discuss is programming for the receiver in the zone so since we can't program The Zone without a receiver we will program the receiver first by getting into programming with four one four zero then eight thousand okay to get into device programming we want to go to the menu mode of star93 so the first thing you're going to see is Zone programming we're not going to go into that just yet so we're going to hit zero until we get to device programming expert mode expert mode is a form of Zone programming we don't usually recommend getting into that because everything is abbreviated and it doesn't tell you what each field is report code programming that's where you would go into you know course programming report codes you know opening closings uh test report code Alpha programming that is where you program the alpha descriptors for your keypad for example on this keypad you could program a zone for front door and whenever you open that door it would display front door onto the display device programming that's where we want to go so you can go up to address you know 0 1 through 30. address 0 0 by default is set for Alpha console and it cannot be disabled because that's set for your first keypad that you connect for programming so again we're going to go into address zero seven star now the device type for address 7 should be zero three for RF expander we're going to hit star RF house ID code that's if you're using bi-directional devices and what I mean by bi-directional devices it will send the status of the panel so such as a 5828 it is a fixed display wireless keypad and since this has a built-in transceiver this 6162 can actually send status of the panel to a 5828 so we're not doing anything with bi-direction we're going to leave that at 0 0. and it's going to take us directly into the next device address so we're just going to hit 0 0 to quit it's going to ask to do quick menu mode I'm going to say yes and then go directly back into star93 because we can get there quicker that way so we want to go into Zone programming yes set to confirm so since we're dealing with a wireless device it's going to display for a serial number so I'm going to say yes to this so that way we can test it to make sure we get the correct serial number we're going to start on Zone 10. to do the wireless okay so this is your display of what's already programmed in the zone so of course at the top Zone 10 the ZT is Zone type the P is for partition the RC is for report code the n is for input type and the L is for Loop so we're going to get Zone response type so what we want to put here is I'm just going to put your standard say we're going to do a door we're going to make a Zone type zero one for entry exit one okay so now the first thing we will see is arm with fault you know if you program the to the Zone type zero one for entry exit one zero two for entry exit two or zero four or ten for motion detectors you'll be presented with this prompt enabling this option allows you to arm the system if the zone is faulted if this option is enabled but Force arm is not enabled for the same Zone then the Zone must be restored before the end of the exit delay if not then the entry delay will begin and if the system is not disarmed before it ends an alarm will occur this behavior is also governed by exit error logic which is enabled in one star 20. let's go ahead and enable that this screen is for enabling Force Army if you answered yes to arm with fault then you will see this prompt if you choose yes for Force arming then if this zone is still faulted at the end of the exit delay The Zone will be automatically bypassed and it will stay bypassed it will not revert back to a faulted state if you choose yes for arm with fault but no to force arming then if the zone is faulted during arming and remains faulted at the end of the exit delay either Exit error logic will take effect or if exit error logic is not enabled an alarm will occur so we'll go ahead and answer just answer yes to this so stay mode so there's two types well three types of stay mode there's State one state two and state three in this mode if you program a Zone type zero one zero two zero three zero four zero five or ten you will see this prompt the valid options are zero for no or one for stay one or two for stay two Zone types was zero four and ten are automatically assigned to stay mode one by default as they are interior Zone types zones aside the stay mode one are automatically bypassed either user code plus three stay or user code plus three one we'll put it in state one if you want stay two you would arm it in by your footage user code three two or if you want to do state three which state three will bypass all motion detectors that are in stay one and stay two you would enter your four digit code three three so what we're going to do is we're going to answer yes to stay mode stay one and then hit start so out of state so of course the same Zone types if Zone type zero one zero two zero three zero four zero five or ten are programmed you will be offered this option if you choose yes then this Zone will automatically be bypassed in the event of a system doesn't see an entry exit Zone fault and restores during exit delays remember that zone type zero three and zero five do not provide an exit delay time if enabling Auto stay be sure to least one Zone on the partition is programmed for an entry exit which what we just programmed is for an entry exit otherwise the auto stay Zone will always be bypassed when arming and since this zone is an entry exit it will not bypass and stay one or stay two stay one and stay tuned stay three only affects motions programmed to be bypassed in those fields so silent alarm well silent uh if we answer yes to this you know Zone types any Berg Zone type that reports this Central Station you know Zone type zero one zero two zero three zero four and zero five and ten will offer you the silent option if you choose yes then this Zone will behave in every way as described in the zone type definition but an alarm on the Zone will not sound the keypad or the siren and will not display the alarm at the keypad so we're going to yes to that okay so bypass groups so again same Zone types zero one zero two zero three zero four zero five and Zone type ten uh we'll provide this prompt you can create up to 15 bypass groups this allows you to quickly bypass multiple zones without having to enter each Zone number during the arming one at a time if you do not wish to use group arming for this Zone enter zero zero to bypass the group zones you would enter user code 6 Plus star then plus the group number so we're not going to use bypass group so we're just going to leave that as zero so partitions so partitions this is where we get into separation of the security panel the 128 BPT can do up to eight partitions it's like having eight separate security systems in one so for an example you got a house in a garage you can arm either one of those independently if you put say the house on partition one and the garage on partition two so if you arm the house it will not affect the garage unless you go to partition two and arm it or disarm it or from whatever States you want to change it from and you would enable more partitions in two star zero zero by default there's only one partition enabled in the 128 BPT so report codes so this is where you enable the report codes for your zone so by default Zone 10 is a zero one zero zero if for some odd reason if you do not want the zone to report all you got to do is make the first digit a zero zero and then with it being a zero zero it will not report so we're just going to keep it as a zero one for default so you hit star and then it flashes to the second digit and then it shows you the report code there at the end so this next screen is input type so with it being a wireless device of course we want it set up as an input type of three RF transmitter this input type is supervised and when it's supervised it's going to Ping in every 70 to 90 minutes and if the panel does not see at least one ping within a 12 hour time period The Zone will go into trouble the next input type is input Type 4 unsupervised so which means if you set this as an input type of 4 the device will still attempt to Ping in every 70 90 minutes by default but the panel don't care if it sees it or not so if it is set to this input type and the Zone in the wireless device is not communicating you would never know so then we go into zero five that is button RF button RF that is used for your key fobs your arming and disarming and arming stay key fobs and then we go into the next one which is zero six in a previous video we spoke about serial pulling Loops so this is for serial pulling loop it's a hardwired serial connection so we're not going to discuss that and then there is the older pulling Loop is dip switch serial pulling Loop which it does not use a Serial it's a dip switch pull it goes by Zone assignment by dip switches on it which is an older type of dip switch pulling it's an older type so the 128 BPT is preferred serial pulling Loop okay so let's go ahead and go back to our input type we want which is three because we wanted to be supervised because it's a security device we're going to hit star all right so this is the tamper option on this for wireless devices it already has a built-in tamper so that's going to stay zero so we're going to go ahead and hit star this screen smart contact that's if your device has smart contact features the only two devices that have Smart contacts are usually motions and smoke detectors for smoke detectors you want to make sure that the smoke detector has this feature before you enable it and the same goes for the motion you want to make sure that the motion has this feature before you enable it for smoke detectors once it falls out of sensitivity or if the head gets dirty or something just happens to the Head it will send the signal over to the panel that there's something wrong with a treble motion detectors again make sure the motion has this feature it's for high traffic areas and what it does the Zone will automatically restore after our fault even if it does not get the restore from the motion so since we're going to be demonstrating with a door contact we don't want to enable that so we're just going to hit star so this is the screen where you learn in the serial number and so what we have today is a 5816 and with the 5816 there's two markings on the side of it that demonstrate to show you where the magnet is supposed to go the orientation of the magnet whenever we trigger this it's supposed to be learned underneath the loop two so let's go ahead and let's learn it in [Music] okay so that's the serial number we'll trigger it again here okay so we triggered it twice and now it's flashing underneath the loop number after the second trigger it's supposed to go underneath the Loop Number Two we're going to hit star so now what the set to confirm is this is going to verify that we've got the correct serial number so whenever I trigger this we should see two serial numbers that are the same in which we do underneath the loop two now what I want to do is I'm going to demonstrate what it looks like whenever you have the incorrect serial number so I'm going to grab another 5816 and a brown one here I'm going to hit pound to go back okay so we're on transmit to confirm and again we're just going to stick the magnet up against the 5816 and you see there we got two separate serial numbers so that is a good way to help to indicate that you have the right serial number in your system so if you send if you see two different serial numbers just hit pound back okay it's going to be flashing on the loop number so if we need to reset the serial number in the zone we hit zero and you see how it sets all the ace to the zero but we're looking for the X's we're going to hit star then we're going to hit star again and then it resets over and just trigger the device like this okay and then we're going to trigger the device again [Music] okay and of course set to confirm and we've got the same serial number so which is a good we're going to hit star then it's going to give us the summary screen you know you'll see the Zone type we program the partition the report code the input type which is RF and the loop number which is two and it moves us on to the next zone so we've now successfully programmed Zone 10 for wireless utilizing the 5816 so when you're done programming what you want to do is just you know press zero three times and Then star it's going to say equip menu mode if you're done doing anything else just press one for yes and if you're done programming your system just hit star nine nine to exit and generally it takes about two to three minutes for it to reset and that's programming a wireless sensor on a 128 BPT and setting up the receiver for it to communicate on and that there's how you program a 5816 Wireless into a 128 BPT again the same process is for you know any wireless device that's a 5800 series motion smokes and that's also how you program and set up the 5881 receiver in device programming if you have any questions you can send us an email to support or head to our website if you
