Honeywell VISTA 20P Product Features


The high capacity, feature-rich VISTA 20P lets you deliver more value to your customers on each and every sale with up to 48 zones of protection, Internet uploading/downloading, graphic keypad support and dual partitions. VISTA 20P gives you the ability to send alarm signals and upload/download via an Internet Protocol (IP), improving the speed at which information can be delivered to and from the control panel. The control panel's installation advantages, innovative end-user benefits and robust system capacity make the value-priced VISTA 20P an ideal choice for higher end DiY installations.

The VISTA 20P is a high capacity, feature-rich, 48-zones security system that delivers more value to the DiYer. The VISTA 20P comes with 8 on-board hardwired zones (up to 15 with zone doubling), up to 40 hardwired zones with expansion (8 on-board zones + 32 expansion zones = 40 total hardwired zones), and up to 40 wireless expansion zones. Additionally, the VISTA 20P supports up to 16 wireless keyfobs, up to 48 user codes and up to 32 schedules. With the VISTA 20P you can have remote programming capability, add graphic keypad support and up to 2 partitions.

In addition, when used with an AlarmNet® broadband internet communicator (7847i), cellular AT&T LTE communicator (LTE-XA), cellular Verizon LTE communicator (LTE-XV), dual-path Verizon IP/LTE communicator (LTE-IV) or dual-path high-security Verizon IP/LTE communicator (LTE-HSV), the VISTA 20P can be installed in premises without traditional TELCO connected lines.

The VISTA 20P security system is backed by Honeywell's 2-year limited manufacturer's warranty and once upgraded with a Honeywell wireless alarm receiver is compatible with the full line of Honeywell 5800-Series wireless security products. GeoArm and Honeywell give you the options you need to fully customize your DiY security system.
