02 Feb How to Add an Outdoor Siren to your ADT QuickConnect or ADT TS System
There are two issues that make it difficult to accomplish this. First, the control panel itself doesn’t have enough power to connect a hardwired siren like an ADT Safewatch Pro 3000. Second, there isn’t an wireless outdoor siren that’s compatible with your system (only an indoor wireless siren).
All you need to do is purchase a kit that includes the following parts and then assemble them.
- Wireless Relay Module – this communicates with the ADT panel when the alarm goes off.
- Power Supply, Transformer, and Back-Up Battery – these supply the power for the outdoor siren.
- Box – This is a nice little box to put everything above inside securely.
- Wire – To connect the above devices to each other.
Once you have the above kit, you can then choose an outdoor siren and then connect it all. You can attempt to do it yourself or you can schedule a tech phone support call with us to walk you through it or schedule a service call for a technician to come do it all for you. Once everything is installed and ready, the wireless relay module needs to be programmed into the ADT Quickconnect or ADT Total Security Panel.
If you have an ADT QuickConnect System and want to run a wire to the enclosure/box, you can replace the Wireless Relay with this Sensitive Relay. The Sensitive Relay is required because the QuickConnect has a current limit of 3mA. A jumper wire is required from TRG+ to the POS+ terminal as well as common ground.
