I’m replacing a very old wired alarm system with a Ring 2nd Gen alarm system. The beauty of this is that I have wiring to where I want most of the sensors and the keypad and siren. I plan to place the base station where the original system control unit was (under the stairs) as it has mains power, then get some DIN transformers in a project box to run 12V and 5V as needed to the units.
Can you help me understand a few things…
Will the HDR-15-12 be suitable to power the Ring Siren? The manual says 12W max but this is 15W. I can’t imagine this is going to be detrimental, but interested in people’s experiences.
Will the HDR-15-5 be suitable to power the Ring 2nd Gen Keypad (spliced into a USB connector)?
Is there any way to permanently power the Ring motion sensors from a 5/12V supply?
Many thanks for the advice!
