    How to Hardwire a Sensor to the Translator

    Each sensor connection has at least two wires. One of these goes to terminal Z while the second wire will go to terminal GND. Some devices like glassbreak and motions detectors also have two wires for power. Use terminal 12VDC to connect the red wire and terminal GND right next to it for the black.


    Connect a Sensor to Your Translator

    After you have programmed the translator to the panel and hardwired sensor inputs to the translator, it is time to program your sensors.

    To program sensors into your translator, you will simply enter your panel into learn mode, then trip the sensor by opening and closing doors, walking in front of motion detectors, or touching the Z1 and GND terminals.


    The following instructions are panel specific steps for adding the translator to each specific panel. If your panel is not represented, refer to your user's manual or text a Support Representative at 469.513.8685, 7 days a week from 8 am to 8 pm CT.
