The ELK-M1XRF2H is a Wireless (RF) Receiver and Input Expander for use with the ELK-M1 and ELK-M1EZ8 Controls. This receiver is compatible with Honeywell (Ademco) 5800 series wireless transmitters. The M1XRF2H connects to the four (4) wire data (keypad) bus of the control and integrates in much the same way as a M1XIN hardware zone expander except that a single M1XRF2H can handle up to 144 wireless zones (e.g. transmitter sensors or points).

Alarm RF Wireless Receivers
An RF receiver may be the most important peripheral you never knew you needed. For those unaware, these simple electronic devices separate radio signals from one another and convert specific signals into audio, video, or data formats. The receiver uses an antenna to receive transmitted radio signals and a tuner to separate specific signals from all others received by the antenna. These kinds of receivers are used in a variety of applications and industries in everyday life, including home security.
Optimize Your Control Panel
When it comes to home security, alarm RF receivers are designed for use with control panels that support an RF receiver connection via the remote keypad connection points. If the specs size up, the RF receiver (depending on the model) can add wireless capability and range to any control panel. This is an ideal solution for placing detectors and remote control units without having to tediously wire detectors to a control panel.
Improve Your Coverage
Furthermore, within a basic alarm system, integrating an alarm RF receiver should eliminate the possibility of "dead spots" and “nulls” within the coverage area. Remember, an alarm RF receiver is capable of supporting the maximum amount of transmitters that your existing control panel can handle. But also note that the presence of multiple receivers does not increase the number of transmitters that your system can support. Consult your documentation to determine the full capability of your RF receiver, or review the product descriptions on this site for a more detailed breakdown of each device.
A Plethora of Uses
By using a transmitter with an RF receiver (again, depending on model and specs), you not only have the ability to arm and disarm your alarm system, but you’re even capable of unlocking or securing doors, controlling house lights and opening and closing your garage door remotely. The RF receiver is an importance piece of the home automation puzzle.
