Honeywell VISTA-250BPT Control Panel:

The Honeywell VISTA-250BPT is a hybrid commercial security system kit with included Honeywell 6160RF wireless RF 345 MHz alphanumeric programming alarm keypad that is designed for Alula tri-path (ethernet/wifi/cellular AT&T LTE) alarm communications to the GeoArm central monitoring station. The VISTA-250BPT is a high-capacity, feature-rich, 250-zones control panel paired with the Alula universal tri-path communicator delivers Alula app interactive services for medium to large sized commercial businesses.

The VISTA 250BPT control panel comes with 9 on-board hardwired zones, up to 241 polling loop expansion zones (V-Plex or Multiplex), and up to 249 wireless expansion zones. Additionally, the VISTA 250BPT supports up to 8 partitions, 250 user codes and 20 schedules. For more hardwired zones, just add the Honeywell 4219 hardwired 8-zone expansion module to your VISTA 250BPT security system. With the VISTA 250BPT panel you get remote programming capability, graphic keypad support and better false alarm prevention. The VISTA 250BPT's installation advantages, innovative end-user benefits and robust system capacity make the value-priced security system an ideal choice for most commercial business owners.

The VISTA 250BPT 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 security system.

To complete your hybrid tri-path security system installation, first wall-mount the VISTA 250BPT control panel near an electrical outlet and then attach the zone wiring. Next, wall-mount the included 6160RF keypad and wire it into the VISTA 250BPT control panel. Finally, connect the Alula BAT-CONNECT-A tri-path internet/wifi/cellular AT&T cellular LTE alarm communicator to the VISTA 250BPT control panel. You will need an Alula dual-path alarm monitoring account activated to work with GeoArm's central station.

With an Alula alternative tri-path communicator in place (such as the BAT-CONNECT-A), you would no longer need traditional phone service at the property to monitor your VISTA 250BPT hybrid security system. The alternative communicator would also allow you to upgrade to GeoArm's Alula 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 commercial business security with GeoArm.
