For those trying to install a wired bell or siren (or piezo) to the 2GIG panel, you may have noticed 5 and 6 are always hot. You may need to install a resistor on the bell circuit.

The siren/sounder may require a specific resistor as determined by the manufacturer, otherwise, 2GIG recommends a 820 ohm resistor for low current sounders.

Enable Q21 (1-3) to supervise external siren wiring

Bell output is 6-12 VDC @120mA maximum


For an alternative to a wired bell/siren, you can also use a indoor/outdoor 100db/105db zwave siren/strobe (up to 240 zwave devices can be used on panel, which includes siren/strobes)
