Clare Hardwired Zone Input Module

The Clare Hardwired Zone Input Module enables existing wired security sensors to communicate with the Clare Security Panel. The module is universal, allowing it to use any existing hardwired zone.

Purpose - Translators do not translate life saving devices like smoke, CO, or high-heat sensors.
Requirement - This product requires the Clare Security Panel (CS-SEC-10).
Compatibility - This product is not compatible with ClareOne security products.

Works with Existing Wired Security Sensors

  • Converts and relays existing wired zone status based on sensor contact closure or opening (configurable)
  • Zones/Sensors are easily added and configured in Clare’s Install Assist app
  • Zones can report based on zone type, configurable in the Install Assist app


The module reduces equipment and installation costs by allowing you to take over the existing wired home security sensors.
