Honeywell Security at Its Finest

Your family's safety and security are paramount, and the VISTA20P Honeywell Security System has everything you need to sleep safely and soundly. These products are easy enough for the kids to operate, and you'll appreciate the unparalleled convenience and simplicity that only Honeywell provides. This high-capacity, feature-rich system gives you up to 48 zones of protection, Internet uploading/downloading, graphic keypad support and dual partitions.

Consider Just Some of the Benefits

VISTA20P enables you to send alarm signals and upload/download via an Internet Protocol (IP), for seamless, rapid communication between the control panel and all peripherals.

Unit was much bigger than I expected. It dwarfed the replaced unit. Documentation was complex but understandable (I'm a DIY-er with limited alarm experience). Since there are minimal descriptions of what each setting does, I had to guess on some of it. Since I didn't use multi-partitions or X-10 type stuff or internet, I was fine. My big GOTCHA: Ademco EXPECTS you to program using an ALPHA Keypad (like a 6160). I bought a 6150RF fixed text keypad and couldn't reprogram the zones or program the one touch function keys. NOWHERE in the documentation does it say this!! With the 6150, I had to type a long sequence of keys, blindly hoping I was correctly responding to the alpha display (that I couldn't see with a fixed text keypad). I was never able to correctly guess it. The Forum discussions didn't have the correct sequence I needed. I ended up using the default zones which came close enough to what I needed (1 fire, 1 door, 6 instant). Since I was doing this for my parents in another state, I didn't have time to send the keypad back and get the 6160. I guess next time I visit, I'll buy a 6160 and do the job right.
