Is the IQ Hardwire 16 (part number QS7121-840) the best way to do this? My friend and I are designing a system to replace his old GE NX-8 panel. I’ve attached a photo of his existing wiring in the NX-8.
How does the Hardwire 16 work? Do I basically take the old wiring from the NX-8 (minus the keypads) and rewire it to the Hardwire 16? All the hardwire devices (contacts and siren) terminate in the basement. My thinking is that I would place the Hardwire 16 there (in basement) and that would connect wirelessly to the qolsys panel which we would place on the first floor for better cell reception and more of a central location for the wireless contacts, etc.
Does this make any sense? I’m live in a pretty technical world every day but I don’t know too much about this stuff.
