Honeywell VISTA-20P Security System Intended Security Applications:
Honeywell VISTA-20P Security System DIY Installation Notes:
To complete your DIY home security installation, plug in the VISTA-20P transformer into a standard wall outlet and connect the VISTA-20P to a phone jack with live service. You will need long distance service turned on for the phone line alarm communications to work with GEOARM's central station.
When designing your system, keep in mind that the Honeywell VISTA-20P security system supports up to (48) total zones with expansion modules but only supports (8) hardwired zones without expansion. You should add Honeywell wired 8-zone expansion modules if you want to add more than (8) hardwired zones to your VISTA-20P security system.
The VISTA-20P security system comes equipped to send its alarm signals over a traditional phone line. The VISTA-20P has also been proven to work reliably with certain VoIP providers. The recommended VoIP providers are:
Comcast Digital Voice
Time Warner Cable
Bright House Networks
All of these VoIP providers use an independent IP network which makes their service much more reliable than other popular VoIP providers such as Vonage, Ooma or Magic Jack. If you are going to use VoIP alarm monitoring, make sure your VoIP provider is on the above list.
If you have never had a monitored security system installed at your property, you will need to run a phone connection from a live phone jack to the alarm control panel. You also need to make sure your phone service has long distance turned on. If you have VoIP service, you need to make sure that the VoIP service is live at the jack you are plugging the alarm control panel into.
With the rise in cell phone use, more and more people are looking to save money by eliminating their traditional phone service. The VISTA-20P security system allows you to eliminate your monthly phone bill and still get low-cost professional alarm monitoring. You can upgrade the system with an AlarmNet cellular alarm communicator (GSMV4G) which would make the installation of the system easier as you wouldn't have to run a wire from your phone block to the VISTA-20P security system. The cellular alarm communicator sends your alarm signals over the cellular GSM network and you would no longer need traditional phone service to monitor your security system. The GSMV4G would also allow you to upgrade to GEOARM's Total Connect interactive alarm monitoring services, which enables you to receive important alerts, keep a close eye on your home and control your security system remotely via the internet and/or mobile devices you use each and every day. Isn't it time you got connected? Save money and take control of your home security with GEOARM.
