2GIG KEY2-345: Go!Control Programming

2GIG KEY2-345: Go!Control Programming


Hi DIYer’s. Sterling with AlarmGrid here. Today we’re going
to show you how to program a 2gig, key 2-345,
four button, key fob remote. This is a really handy unit
to use with you to 2gig, go control. And allows you to one
touch arm, away or stay, and disarm your panel. You even can activate a
fourth button for a panic, audible or silent. So that you could
trigger a panic alarm if you are in the
bedroom, and you heard something suspicious
in the middle of night. Or for any reason, if you
wanted to activate a panic, to go to the central station. So, this comes in most
wireless, 2gig security system kits that you’re
going to purchase. And we’re going to show you
how you can program your key2 to your 2-gig go control. First thing we do to
program, is to always enter installer mode programming. That was our hot key to
get into programming, by hitting the go control icon. one, five, six, one is our
default installer code. And if we do system
configuration, we jumped to
question number one. Now unlike a regular
wireless device, which would program from
slot zero, one to 48, Q1, Q1. The keyfob program’s
just a bit different. So we hit skip, until we get to
Q3, which is select fob number. You can have eight
fobs per system. You also could have
done the go to command, and then zero, three, to
jump over to question three. But I wanted to show you
the skip option there. So, key fob one, that just
means this is our first key fob. We’re going to hit the down
arrow, yes we want that. We’re going to enable it
by hitting the right arrow, followed by the down arrow. And now the equipment code,
just like any wireless device, we want to tell the system the
model number of what it is. And we are using the
key2-345, four button. So that’s our first option
when we hit the right arrow. And when we hit
the down arrow it’s asking for the serial number. We can type it in,
it’s on the back. zero, six, six, six,
eight, one, six. Or even better, if we hit
shift, followed by learn. Someone just activated
another sensor in the house, so we’re not going to
accept that transmission. We’re going to press and
hold the panic button. Now you can see
it’s switched over from the initial
transmission received, which was a different
sensor in the house, to the particular serial
number for this device. So we hit OK. We hit the down
arrow to lock it in. We tell it is a
brand new device. So, this question
is emergency key. Unlike on a Honeywell device,
where this button is the panic, on a 2gig key fob, the top
two, arm away and disarm together would be our
emergency function. So this question is
enabling that feature. You can choose
auxiliary alarm, which is a slightly different alarm
tone than normal audible alarm. You can even do silent
panic, or fire panic. Silent is only
recommended if you’re going to have this in a
nightstand, or in an area it will where it will never
be pressed by accident. I like to suggest
doing audible alarm, so if you did accidentally
press and hold these buttons in
your pocket or purse, at least you’d know
about it at the panel. And potentially
stop the dispatch of the police to your property. So we’re going to lock in
that audible alarm setting. This question is
an important one. Basically, there
is a security risk by allowing someone to press a
button to disarm your system. If you were to lose this keyfob,
or it got in the wrong hands, now someone can disarm
your security system without a valid four digit code. So, obviously this
goes on your key chain. And if you were
to lose your keys you could certainly delete the
key fob out of programming. And now you won’t have to worry
that someone unauthorized will be able to disarm your system. But, if for whatever reason, you
wanted to restrict the ability to disarm from a
keyfob, and only allow the arming and
the panic functions, you could disable
this disarm button. In our case, we’re going to
be careful about our fob. We’re not going to lose it. If we do lose it, we’re going
to immediately delete it from programming. And therefore we’re
going to allow key number two, which is the unlock
button to disarm our system. So we hit the down
arrow, we give it a description of key fob one. In this case, it’s the
only keyfob we have. And there’s only one user
that’s going to use the system, so there’s really no other
descriptor that we need. We’re going to leave
it as keyfob one. This question is allowing
us to arm the system from the fob with no delay. So if we’re outside the
house, and we arm the system to away mode, and
therefore we don’t want there to be an exit delay. You could enable the
option, so that it would arm with no delay. In our case, we like to
arm it on the way out just without going to the keypad. So therefore we still
need an exit delay, and we’re going to leave
this question disabled. So this question here, is
the key four output button. So this is not to panic
button, we talked earlier how this is the panic. This would be if
we had something wired to our open collector
terminal inside the panel. We could activate this button
to activate that open collector, so whatever’s wired to that
open collector would activate. In our case, we don’t have
anything connected there, so we’re just going to
advance past this option. Here is our summary screen, we
are enabled for our key two. We have our serial
number, it’s a new device. We have our emergency key
active as an audible alarm. We are allowing our key
fob to disarm the system. We’re calling it a key fob one. We have disabled the
arm with no delay, because we want delay in case
we arm it from inside the house. And finally we’ve disabled
our key four output, because we don’t have
anything connected to our open collector. If we hit skip, end, and exit,
the panel is going to reboot. And after a few
seconds we’re going to hear it say “system
disarmed and ready”. And then this button
will light up, and a few short seconds
later we’ll have our screen. And we can test out
some arming, disarming, on our key fob to make sure
we programmed it in properly. So we just heard our audible
noise, and here goes. So, system ready, not armed. If we press the picture of the
guy leaving the property, that would be a away mode,
you can see pressing the button lit up the light. And now we have our countdown,
the system is arming. We would have the option to open
and close an entry exit door. And as soon as long as
we’re outside of the house, with all doors and windows
closed, by the time it’s armed, we’re good to go. If we want to stop that,
we can press and hold the disarm button, the light
lights up, the system disarms. The picture of the
guy in the house, is an armed say function. You can hear it
say “arming, stay” that’s going to turn off
our motion detectors, so that as we walk
throughout the house, we’re not going to
trigger false alarms. Again, we can disarm. Now that we know we’re working
for our arm away, our disarm, and our arm stay, the last
thing we’re going to do is activate our panic
by pressing the top two. I’m going to disarm
it immediately, we just want to hear
the siren, and make sure that we’ve activated
our emergency panic function properly. So here we go, press and hold. Alarm, keyfob, one. I wanted to show you
there, I press the disarm, and you saw that screen. It said, when a key fob panic
alarm has been activated, you cannot use that
same key fob to disarm. That way, in case
you pressed it, and because a criminal or
an intruder is in your house he would not be able to just
grab this out of your hand and press the disarm button. It would actually require
someone to have a valid code and disarm it at the panel. Because this message
here, you can see “alarm report transmitted,
cancel being sent”. When you disarm
shortly after an alarm, it would actually
cancel the alarm message to go to the central station. So that would be a
way that an intruder could defeat your transmission
of the panic button. So, I wanted to highlight
that by trying to disarm here, and then showing you that you
actually have to disarm it by disarming it at the panel. So, we can see our 24
hour audible alarm worked, our siren was triggered. That was activated
by the keyfob, our programming was good. So, we can clear this alarm. We were acknowledging
to the system that we get what
happened, and we don’t need to see that message. So, that is our 2gig key2-345
programming sequence. And we hope you’ve enjoyed that. We invite you to
