IP BAT WIFI Wiring and Programming for the Interlogix NetworX Tutorial

How to tutorial for the Interlogix NetworX on wiring and programming the IPDatatel IP BAT WIFI


Hi, my name is Jason with In today's video I'm going to be doing the wiring and programming for the ipDatatel BAT on the Interlogix NetworX alarm panel. This will apply to any of the NetworX alarm systems as well as any of the ipDatatel BAT communicators. So let's go ahead and get to the table and we'll get started.

So here we have the ipDatatel. This is the BAT Wi-Fi. It doesn't matter if this is the BAT Wi-Fi or the BAT LT or whatever, as long as it's an ipDatatel BAT. It doesn't matter which model of that. It will be the same process. So if you look on the bottom there's these two tabs. And you just need to gently pry those a little bit to get the case open. Now once you have it open, the most important part for our initial setup here is these 12 terminal...or sorry, 16 terminals. And they're just numbered, 1 at the bottom, 16 at the top. Usually a couple other important things. You have the button here for your WPS. You have the MAC address followed by the CRC which you need for initial account setup as well. There's also an Ethernet port so if you do have an available connection there you can use that. At the bottom there's a little knock out here and that's generally where you'll run your wires through your wall. For purposes of the video I'm not gonna be using that. I'm just gonna come in from the side.

So to figure out how you need to wire this you're going to want to use this wiring diagram here. So this is for the GE control panels, and of course this is for the NetworX. NetworX uses a three wire connection. Says the positive, common and data. Generally, we'll use red, black, green. And then you can follow those lines. So data goes to green which is terminal six. Comm goes to negative power which is terminal four. Positive goes to terminal three for positive power. And then up here we have ring and tip which correspond to ring and tip on the bottom. So those are the five terminals that we'll be using. And then at the bottom of this sheet you also see the programming steps. Just very basic stuff that you'll be using.

So let's go ahead and get our wires out and we'll connect this up. So we'll start with ring and tip. So at the bottom, terminal one is where we'll connect tip which I'll be using green for that. And I'm just using a standard four wire alarm wire, but I'm bending back the yellow and the black. And I'll do that on both ends so that I...before I actually install it so that I know which wire I'm using for what. So we'll put the green wire under terminal one. Tighten that down. The red wire for ring will go under terminal two. And then we'll get our other wire out. And again I'm just using a standard four wire alarm wire here, but I'm bending back the yellow one on this so I just have the red, black, green.

NetworX is a little unique as I'm sure you know if you're using this. It doesn't use a four wire connection like Honeywell or DSE or even some other Interlogix boards. All right, so the red wire is going to go on terminal three which is our positive connection. It's how the IP BAT will get its power. Terminal four is our negative power. We'll skip terminal five. That's normally our yellow. And we'll go straight to terminal six for our green. And so that's all there is for the wiring. The rest of the setup as far as the connecting it to your Wi-Fi, getting the account set up, etc. we're not gonna cover in this video. But as far as the connection to the actual alarm system goes, that's all you'll need there. So now let's go over to the NetworX panel and we'll do the wiring there.

All right, so this is the NX6 board here and it doesn't matter if this is the NX-6, NX-4, NX-8, whatever. It's going to be the same exact process for all of them. So we'll start with our ring and tip. So of course ring is red, green is tip. And all the way at the top here we have the top ones R1 and then below that is ring. So we'll take our red wire from our ring and tip connection on the BAT and put that in there. Right below that is "T" for tip. All right. Then we'll go to our other wire which we're using the three wire connection. So red, black, yellow...or sorry, red, black, green. And these are going on the same three as the keypad. So red and black are positive/negative. So positive comm and then the green is data. And so pretty easy. I'm just going to follow the same wiring scheme here.

And just like that. So now we'll go back to the table where I have the keypad. We'll power the system back up and we'll go through the program.

All right, so I've got the system powered up here. So we're going to go into programming which you use star eight, followed by the installer code, which default on this system is 9713. All right, so now it says "Enter the device address then #." So we're going to go to device as zero and then #. And we're going to go to location zero followed by #. And so here we're going to enter the phone number. Now you don't need to enter a real phone number because it's not actually dialing out. We just need the system to act as if it's connected to a real phone line. So I just use one followed by a bunch of fives. So I'll do one, star, five, star, five, star, five star, etc. until you get a full phone number in. And you probably don't even really need a full phone number. And then you can just push # when you're finished.

So that's the phone number. The next thing we need to do is go to location one, and this is going to be our account number. So I just use 1234 here. Again, it doesn't really matter. And then a couple extra stars to get through because it'll allow up to a six-digit number. And then finally we're going to go to device location two. And here we just need to make sure 13 is entered by entering 1, 3 and then star. And what that will do is make sure that the system communicates in contact ID format.

So that's really all that you need to do for the programming. So as a summary you need to enter a phone number, enter an account number and you need to make it so that it dials out in contact ID. This will allow the system to call out overly [SP] tip and ring to the BAT. The BAT will simulate or emulate a regular phone line.
