Honeywell VISTA: Adding New Keypads, Enabling New Addresses

So the next thing
we’re going to do here is enable addresses
17, 18, 19, and 20. And what we’re going to do is
we have five total keypads. We’ve already addressed the
first 6160V to address 16. And now we’re going to
address our other four keypads to addresses 17, 18, 19, 20. So before we address
those keypads, we first need to enable
addresses 17 through 20. So on the first keypad, the
6160V that we’ve already addressed to 16, we need
to go into programming, using the installer code,
and enable those addresses. So on the 6160V,
we’re going to use the installer
code, which is 4112 by default, followed by 800. And that’ll say– that’ll
put us into programming where it says installer code 20. OK. If you’ve changed your
installer code away from 4112, then you’d use that code. Otherwise, if it’s
still in default then you’re here
into programming using 4112 followed by 800. So now that we’re
in programming, we’ll go to– first we’ll
go to keypad address 17. So we’re going to
enter star 190. And I’ll put us into– it
says keypad address 17. So all we have to do
here is enter two fields. So now that we’re in
programming and we’ve already entered star 190 to get to
keypad address 17, what we’re going to do is enter the
partition number followed by the sound suppression field. So more often than not, we’re
dealing with a single partition system, where all the keypads
are controlling one partition, all the sensors are
in one area, and you don’t need a separate control. We won’t get into the
multi-partition control right now, because most–
the majority of the systems are single partition. So the first selection
will be a one, setting it to partition one. And then the second selection
will be a sound settings. So normally, you
would enter zero. And what that means–
you’ll get that triple beep to let you know
that’s been locked in and bumps you to
keypad address 18. Before we jump to 18, as far
as sound suppression goes, there’s three settings. You can set it to zero. You can actually set it to
zero, one, two, or three. So there’s four selections. Zero is the most common. It means no suppression. What that means is that
your chimes, your entry exit beeps, even alarms, will
all beep and generate out of the speaker on
the keypad, OK. So you always generally
want to keep that on zero. If you have this keypad
maybe in your master bedroom, and you don’t like
it to beep when you arm from maybe
the entry exit point when your family is sleeping,
you can suppress sound. There’s three settings for that. The setting one will just
suppress the disarm and arm beeps and the entry exit beeps. So if you entered a one
as the second selection, it would just
suppress that sound. So it would still chime,
but it would not do the arm and disarm conformation beeps
or the entry exit beeps. If you enter a two, it will
only suppress the chime. But it will still
do the arm disarm and the entry exit beeps. Three will suppress everything,
so entry exit beeps, chime, and the arming and
disarming confirmation. So if you want to
suppress sound, you don’t want all the sound
coming from the keypad, then you can choose
one, two, or three, depending on whether
you want chime only, entry exit beeps only,
or both being suppressed. Or you can enter a zero, which
means that nothing’s suppressed and everything– all the sound
will be coming from the keypad. So after you’ve done that,
it’ll jump to keypad address 18. If you’re only setting
up two keypads, then you don’t need to
really enable these. If you’re setting up
more, which we are today, then we’re going to
go ahead and enable 18, 19, and 20 for our
other three keypads here. So we’ll just do the same thing. One for the partition, zero
for the sound suppression, so that all these beep here. It’ll jump to 19. And then we’ll keep
doing that again here. A one and zero. You get the confirmation beeps. We’re on 20 for our last keypad. And we’ll do a one zero again. And now we have keypad
addresses 16 through 20 enabled, and we can go ahead and
address our other keypads now. So we’re going to jump from
the 6160V up to the 6160RF, which has an RF
receiver built into it.

  1. For the panels listed below, Honeywell has started to enabling keypad addresses 17 through 23 at the factory. In other words, for fields *190 through ∗196, the default values are now [1] [0]. You can still change the sounds suppression on them if needed. If your panel has a lower revision you will need to manually enable them as shown in our video…

    VISTA-10P Rev. 5.21 or higher; VISTA-15P/20P Rev. 10.21 or higher; VISTA-21iP Rev. 4.21 or higher
