It’s highlighted with a big red oval in the picture.

This critical piece converts power coming directly from any source to 5V, e.g., a solar charge controller or battery with 12V output. 5 Volts is just what the doctor ordered for your USB connectors that power your Valarm sensor hubs.

Be sure to attach the + positive red leads to each other. Same goes for the – negative black wires!

If you’ve set it up right then your sensor hubs and sensors will light up and your sensor telemetry information will be sent to
