Connection to the Honeywell Galaxy G2 Alarm panel is very straight forward requiring only 3 connections to be made as a minimum.
A4 GSM Alarm Dialler & SMS Sender
To power the GSM Dialer you can use the auxiliary output on your Galaxy G2 panel. The positive (+) terminal is connected to one of the VIN terminals (the edge one VINA one is best as it has on-board thermal fuse protection) and the negative (-) terminal to GND on the GSM Dialer PCB. You then connect the bell -ve terminal to input A. This is shown as a bell symbol on the Galaxy panel.
Wiring the Honeywell G2 to the A4 GSM Dialler
The Galaxy output terminal can be connected to the dialler Input B terminal if desired to allow the alarm to notify users of various events. Typically the alarm will be programmed to show when it has been set and unset. See below for details of programming the output terminal.
If desired the alarm can be set and unset using your mobile phone by SMS or call. We would recommend only the ‘push-set’ feature of the alarm is used however. This will avoid any accidental un-setting of the alarm remotely.
To set the alarm the relay output terminals on the dialler are wired as shown in the diagram. Resistors must be fitted as the change in resistance from 1k to 2k initiates the setting of the alarm. To set the system the zone is set as a ‘push-set’ zone. A call made to the system operates the relay and sets the alarm. A timed pulse can also be made by sending OPEN in an SMS by any registered user.
If desired the zone can be set as a keyswitch input which allows the alarm to be set and unset. We only recommend this where input B is used to notify users when the alarm is set and unset (send ‘inlevelB both’ in a SMS text). The output should be set to normally closed (SMS: normally closed) so in the event power is lost to the dialer the alarm automatically sets.
Please contact support for further details. Resistors are available on request (free of charge).

Setting the output terminal options:
Option 53 – Outputs
This option allows the operation of all the system outputs to be programmed. Outputs numbered 0001 to 0008 are the outputs from the trigger header. Outputs numbered 1001 to 1004 are the standard outputs on the main PCB. Outputs on expansion modules are shown if fitted. Each output has a sub menu containing attributes as shown:
Assigns the output function that activates the output.
This selects if the output is normally off (positive) or normally on (negative). Positive means that the output is 12V going to 0V when activated. Negative means that the output is 0V going to 12V when activated.
For output types where groups are programmable, this selects the groups that an output responds to. An output can respond to 1, 2, 3 or 4 groups.
NOTE: Reflex means that the output stays on until the condition clears.
Latch means that the output stays on until a valid user logs on (PIN or card).
Latch* means that these outputs are latched but can be forced off by bell delay, bell time or confirm timeouts. Pulse means that the output stays on for five seconds and then switches off again.
On entering the option, the first output on the system is displayed; the output address, function and mode are displayed on the top line, the polarity and assigned groups are displayed on the bottom line. From the display of the first output, any output on the system can be displayed by pressing the A or B keys or by entering the address of a specific output.
The output is selected for programming by pressing the ent key; the first output programming attribute
1= Function is displayed.
This function is used to designate outputs that are not being used on the system.
The Bells output is activated on a full alarm event when the system is set. This output is subject to the Bell
Time and Bell Delay parameters.
The Strobe output is activated on a full alarm event during the set state. This output is subject to the Bell
Delay. The Strobe output follows the Bell Time, but latches on after the last rearm.
The PA output is activated whenever any of the PA zone types activate. It latches on and remains active until a
valid code, with the appropriate reset level, is entered.
The Intruder output is activated on a full alarm event during the set state.
The Tamper output is activated whenever a circuit tamper or lid tamper occurs. The output is not subject to rearm: it latches on and remains active until a valid code, with the appropriate System Reset level, is entered.
The 24 Hour output is activated whenever a 24 Hour zone is activated. The output is not subject to rearm: it latches on and remains active until a valid code, with the appropriate System Reset level, is entered.
08=0V Detector Reset (Pulse)
This output is always on (0V) but pulses for five seconds upon setting or system reset to reset any latching detectors.
The Set output is activated when the assigned groups on the system are set. This output is a Reflex output and follows the set and unset status of the groups.
11=Comms Test (Pulse)
This output activates any time a test signal is sent to the Alarm Receiving Centre.
14=AC Fail (Reflex)
The AC Fail output indicates the status of the a.c. (mains) power supply. The output activates when the a.c. supply fails or an AC Fail zone is activated. The output is reset when the a.c. supply is restored or the AC Fail zone is closed. This output is subject to Parameter 56.7.4=Comms.Parameters.Power Delay.
15=Low Batt (Reflex)
The Low Batt output activates whenever the control unit stand-by battery falls below 10.5V or a Low Batt zone is activated. The output is restored when the voltage rises above 10.5V or the Low Batt zone is closed.
The Fire output is activated whenever a Fire zone is activated. It latches on and remains active until a valid code (level 2 or above) is entered.
The Confirm output is activated when there have been activations on two separate zones: the second activation must occur within the Confirm Time Window. The zones do not have to be in the same group. Confirm outputs will switch off when all groups which have been in alarm are unset.
NOTE: The Confirm output is used to give positive identification that a genuine intruder alarm condition has
occurred and to minimise the possibility of false alarm activations.
The Omit output is activated as soon as a zone is omitted from the system. The activation can be initiated manually by omitting a zone at 11 = OMIT ZONES or by force omit at rearm. Response to either is controlled
by Option 56.7.06 = Comms.Parameters.Omit Sig.
The Abort output is activated when a valid code is entered to unset the system following an intruder alarm.
The output stays on for one minute and then switches off.
The Unset output is activated each time the system (or group) is unset.
Activates when link zone is activated see 52.1
66=RF Jam (Reflex)
The RF Jam output is activated whenever any of the RF RIO’s configured onto the system detect a significant level of interference to cause radio jamming.
67=RF Supervision Fail (Reflex)
The RF Supervision Fail output is activated whenever there is a supervision failure from any one of the supervised RF detectors configured onto the system. That is, when the system has received no signals (including
periodic check-in signals) whatsoever, from a particular detector within the programmed supervision period.
Keypad assistance hot key activation or assistance zone.
70=Any Set (Reflex)
Activated when system is Full Set, Part Set or Night Set.
71=Bell Fail (Reflex)
Activates when bell fail zone is activated see Option 52.1
72=RF TX Low Battery (Reflex)
The RF TX Low Battery output is activated whenever an RF detector sends a low battery condition to an RF receiver.
This output will activate any time there is a fault condition present on the panel and will clear when all the fault conditions have cleared.
