Honeywell

Vista 20P

The Vista 15P and 20P share the same programming as they are essentially the same panel but with a different number of zones, users, etc. Ademco panels are much easier to programme with an alpha keypad. 

Default Installer Code: 4112

Default Master Code: 1234

User Codes 

>

Adding/Changing Codes 

>

When programming codes you cannot hesitate, if you pause for more than 3 seconds during key presses it will cancel the operation and you will have to try again.

The Vista 20P has 49 codes:

All hardwired zones can be programmed for normally open, normally closed, zone-doubled or double-balanced. This is set up for each zone individually when programming the zone. See Zone programming above.

1) Zone 1 cannot be changed and is set up for a 2K Ohm resistor, normally closed.

2) Zones 2+ can be setup for:

  • NO, short on alarm

  • NC, open on alarm

  • EOL, 2K Ohm resistor normal, alarm on opentrouble on short

  • DOUBLED, see diagram

  • BALANCED, see diagram 

3) Fire zones, normal on 2K Ohm resistor, trouble on openalarm on short

Zone expanders need to be setup with the dipswitches to select EOL/NC.

Keypad Zones

>

First see if your keypad is compatible, it should have two extra terminals on the back for the zone. If it has NO and C it is for an output not a zone.

 

Wiring the zone

1) Wire the device across the ZN and - terminals with a 2K resistor in series.

2) If it's a powered device, you can also power it from the + and -.

Programming the keypad zone

1) Power cycle the keypad.

2) Hold down 1 and 3 for 3 seconds, within 30 seconds of power up.

3) CON ADDRESS /  XX

  • Enter 16 to 23

  • * to save

4) E0 zone expander enabled/disabled.

  • Press 1 then * to enable

5) EXPANDER ADDRESS / 107

Whichever expander you choose (07, 08, 09 etc) will take up that expander slot. It will use the first zone, so if you leave it as 107 it will take up zones 9-16, and the keypad zone will be 9, the first zone.

Enter your selection and press *.

  • 107 Zone 9

  • 108 Zone 17

  • 109 Zone 25

  • 110 Zone 33

  • 111 Zone 41

6) A1

EOL settings for the keypad zone. Press 1 then * to leave as standard EOL, 2k resistor.

7) Press * 3 more times to skip the rest of the keypad options.

The zone is now setup as a keypad zone. Be sure to program it as a hardwired zone with a zone type and partition.

Zone Expanders

>

Vista 20P - 8 zones, expandable to 48. 

These instructions are for a 4219, 8 zone expander.

 

Wire the expander

Mount the expander then wire the unit into the main panels keypad bus (red, black, yellow and green).

Address the expander

Use the dip switches to set the address, this will determine which zones are used for the expander. Switches 2-6 determine the zones. Expanders can be addressed from 7 (zones 9-16) to 11 (zones 40-48).

  • A 7: Zones 9-16, ON: 5 OFF: 2 3 4

  • A 8: Zones 17-24, ON: 2 3 4 OFF: 5

  • A 9: Zones 25-32, ON: 3 4 OFF: 2 5

  • A 10: Zones 33-40, ON: 2 4 OFF: 3 5

  • A 11: Zones 41-48, ON: 4 OFF: 2 3 5

The 4219 has a built in tamper reed, with a magnet attachment for the lid. You can disable the tamper on the dip switch by turning 8 on.

  • 8 On: No tamper

  • 8 Off: Tamper enabled

All zones wire in as either normally closed loops or 2K closed loops. For normally closed, turn 7 on.

  • 7 OnNormally closed loops

  • 7 Off: 2K Ohm closed loops

Basic Programming

Programming Rules

>

To programme a Vista 15/20, you need to press * or # and then a location number.

Pressing # then a location number will allow you to view that location, this can be useful for reading back the installer code or phone numbers.

Pressing * then a location will allow you to edit that location. Enter the data you need, then proceed to the next location you want to program or exit programming.

If at any point you have to press A, B, C, or D, it is referring to the 4 vertical function buttons to the left of the the number buttons. The top button being A.
