Conversion from ADT to Elk M1
Posted 01 June 2011 - 04:53 PM
Anyone know or have any documetation on the ADT wireless card? Know if this card will even work with the Elk M1? I am hoping to make this work before I have to buy the Honeywell wireless reciever from Elk.

I think the only receiver from another manufacturer that works with the Elk is the Caddx one. I am not 100% but I think you will have to buy the Elk Honeywell receiver. I would also check compatibility of your wireless devices with the Elk Honeywell receiver.
Thanks for the feedback. I know my transmitters do work with the Elk Honewell reciever.

If you have an account on Elk's support site you can a list of their currently approved/tested wireless accesories by looking in the manual on page 8. http://www.elkproduc...ll_Transmitters

It sounds like the OP doesn't have any existing wireless receivers - so at that point it seems to make the most sense for him to buy the M1XRF2x that's most appropriate for his install, which would be the honeywell... or am I missing something?
You could also convert the wireless signals using one of these - http://www.automated...et.com/RW-REx24
You can then convert the Honeywell wireless to the GE that the Elk likes.

So I am doing the same thing: replacing a previous system with an M1. The sensors are all SA5816, but presumably older than the current versions (bigger).
My M1XRF2H registers them, and the System recognizes them. But that's as far as it goes. I configured them the same way as I do the newer ones:
Type 0 = EOL Hardware/Wireless
No option 1 or option 2, PIR on the motions, loop1.
In this configuration the system shows them in fault. If I check option 1 or 2, the fault goes away, but the system does not recognize when the sensor is activated.
I tried loop2. System still does not recognize a sensor activation.
Anyone know what the secret is with older 5816?
