Can be armed in one of three STAY modes or Instant modes, automatically bypassing specific burglary zones regardless of the zone response type. Can automatically bypass specific zones if no one exits the premises after arming (Auto-STAY). Auto-STAY will not occur if the system is armed via an RF transmitter, VIP module, scheduling, access control, keyswitch, RS232 (TB4) automation or downloading. Can bypass a group of zones with one set of keystrokes. Supports Exit Error Logic, whereby the system can tell the difference between a regular alarm and an alarm caused by leaving an entry/exit door open. If the system is not subsequently disarmed, faulted E/E zone(s) and/or interior zones are bypassed and the system arms. Supports Recent Close report, which is designed to notify the central station that an alarm has occurred within 2 minutes after the exit delay has expired. Can control eight separate areas independently, each functioning as if it had its own separate control. Provides a Common Lobby partition, which can be programmed to arm automatically when the last partition is armed, and to disarm when the first partition is disarmed. Provides a Master partition (9), used for the purpose of viewing the status of all partitions at the same time. Can display fire, burglary, panic, and trouble conditions at all other partitions’ keypads (selectable option).

Event Log

Telephone Line Fault Monitor

V-Plex Smart Contact
• Smart V-Plex sensors such as the DT7500SN and IS2500SN polling loop motion detectors offer enhanced functionality, which tells the detector to stop sending Fault/Restore signals while the partition is disarmed. This prevents the polling loop from slowing down due to high bus activity in busy areas. The feature is enabled by Zone in Zone Programming. When enabled, within about 5 minutes of program exit the panel will send the command to the Smart Contacts to turn off their LED and stop sending fault/restore. (The DT7500SN and IS2500SN will turn off their LED unless the LED DIP switch is set to ON, in which case the LED will always remain enabled). Upon entering Code + 5 (Burglary Walk Test Mode), the panel will again tell the PIR to enable the LEDs and start sending Fault/Restore. The LED will remain enabled until the Burglary Walk Test mode is exited. Removing and replacing the cover of the DT7500SN and IS2500SN, or power-cycling these sensors will also put them in the walk test mode, enabling the LEDs and sending of Fault/Restore for 10 minutes. NOTE: Regardless of Smart Mode, Tamper and Supervision Failure are sent without delay. Some motion detectors, including the DT7500SN, have an “Anti-Mask” feature that will alert the panel when the lens has been blocked. For DIP switch settings related to this feature, refer to the motion detector documentation. 5800 wireless and V-Plex smoke detectors can send a report to the panel when they determine that their sensitivity has deteriorated beyond the sensor’s ability to compensate internally (Dirty). When programmed as a “Smart Contact” in zone programming, a sensor which shows a high or low sensitivity condition will trigger a message on the keypad, a dialer report, and an event log entry. The display message will indicate HSENSxxx or LSENSxxx, where xxx is the zone number. Provides up to 60 installer-defined, custom words that can be used for zone descriptors. Provides 32 keypad macro commands (each macro is a series of keypad commands of up to 32 keystrokes) using the A, B, C, and D keys by partition. Provides cross-zone capability, which helps prevent false alarms by preventing a zone from going into alarm unless its cross-zone is also faulted within a 5-minute period. Contains a built-in User Manual, which provides the end user with a brief explanation of the function of a key when the user presses any of the function keys on the keypad for 5 seconds. Provides an RS232 input (TB4) for serial data. This is useful for interfacing the system with Automation software. Automation software cannot be used if a serial printer is used on the system.

Theory of Partitioning
This system provides the ability to arm and disarm up to eight different areas, as if each had its own control. These areas are called partitions. A Partitioned system allows the user to disarm certain areas while leaving other areas armed, or to limit access to certain areas to specific individuals. Each system user can be assigned to operate any or all partitions, and can be given a different authority level in each. Before anything can be assigned to those partitions, you must first determine how many partitions (1-8) are required. Following are some facts you need to know about partitioning.

Zones
Each zone must be assigned to one partition. The zones assigned to a partition will be displayed on that partition's keypad(s).

Users
Each user may be given access to one or more partitions. If a user is to operate more than one partition and would like to arm/disarm all or some of those partitions with a single command, the user must be enabled for Global Arming for those partitions (when entering user codes). A user with access to more than one partition (multiple access) can "log on" to one partition from another partition's keypad, provided that program field 2*18: Enable GOTO is enabled for each partition he/she wants to log on to from another. A partition can be selected as a "common lobby" partition, and other partitions can affect this partition by causing arming/disarming of this partition to be automated (see “Common Lobby Logic” later in this section).

Keypads
Each keypad must be given a unique "address" and be assigned to one partition. It can also be assigned to Partition 9 if Master keypad operation is desired. (See “Master Keypad Setup and Operation” later in this section.)

Setting-Up a Partitioned System
The basic steps to setting up a partitioned system are described below. If you need more information on how to program the options, see SECTION 4: Programming. 1.

Common Lobby Logic
When an installation consists of a partition shared by users of other partitions in a building, that shared partition may be assigned as the "common lobby" partition for the system (program field 1*17). An example of this might be in a medical building where there are two doctors’ offices and a common entrance area (see example that follows explanation). The Common Lobby feature employs logic for automatic arming and disarming of the common lobby. Two programming fields determine the way the common lobby will react relative to the status of other partitions. They are: 1*18 Affects Lobby and 1*19 Arms Lobby. 1*18 Affects Lobby (must be programmed by partition) Setting this field to 1 for a specific partition causes that partition to affect the operation of the common lobby as follows: a. When the first partition that affects the lobby is disarmed, the lobby is automatically disarmed. b. The common lobby cannot be armed unless every partition selected to affect the lobby is armed.

2-1

VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT Installation and Setup Guide
1*19 Arms Lobby (must be programmed by partition) Setting this field to 1 for a specific partition causes that partition to affect the operation of the common lobby as follows: a. The common lobby cannot be armed unless every partition selected to affect the lobby is armed. b. Arming a partition that is programmed to arm the lobby causes the system to automatically attempt to arm the lobby. If any faults exist in the lobby partition, or if another partition that affects the lobby is disarmed, the lobby cannot be armed, and the message "UNABLE TO ARM LOBBY PARTITION" is displayed. You cannot select a partition to "arm" the lobby unless it has first been selected to "affect" the lobby. Do not enable field 1*19 without enabling field 1*18. The following chart sums up how the common lobby partition will operate.
1*18 Affects Lobby 1*19 Arms Lobby Disarms when partition disarms? NO YES YES Attempts to arm when partition arms? NO NO YES Can be armed if other partitions disarmed? YES NO NO

Sequence #1:
Office 1 User #1: User #2: User #1: User #2: Disarms (Disarmed) Arms (Armed) Office 2 (Armed) Disarms (Disarmed) Arms Lobby Action Disarms No Change No change Arms

Sequence #2:
Office 1 User #2: User #1: User #2: User #1: (Armed) Disarms (Disarmed) Arms Office 2 Disarms (Disarmed) Arms (Armed) Lobby Action Disarms (No change) No Change No Change

Notice that in sequence #1, because Office #2 was the last to arm, the lobby also armed (Office #2 is programmed to affect and arm the lobby). In sequence #2, the lobby could not arm when Office #2 armed, because Office #1, which affects the lobby, was still disarmed. When Office #1 armed, the lobby still did not arm because Office #1 was not programmed to arm the lobby. User #1 would have to arm the lobby manually. Therefore, you would want to program a partition to affect and arm the lobby if the users of that partition are expected to be the last to leave the building.

Section 2 – Partitioning
How User Access Codes Affect the Common Lobby Codes with Global Arming If a code is given "global arming" when it is defined (see SECTION 9: User Access Codes), the keypad prompts the user to select the partitions they want to arm. Only the partitions the user has access to are displayed. This allows the user to choose the partitions to be armed or disarmed, and so eliminates the "automatic" operation of the lobby. Keep in mind, however, that if a user attempts to arm all, and another "affecting" partition is disarmed, the user cannot arm the lobby, and the message "UNABLE TO ARM LOBBY PARTITION" is displayed. Codes with Non-Global Arming If a user arms with a non-global code, the lobby partition operation is automatic, as described by fields 1*18 and 1*19. Other Methods of Arming/Disarming Common Lobby logic remains active when arming or disarming a partition that affects and/or arms the common lobby in one of the following manners: • Quick-Arm • Keyswitch • Wireless Button • Wireless Keypad Arming/Disarming Remotely If a user arms or disarms remotely (through Compass downloading software), the lobby does not automatically follow another partition that is programmed to arm or disarm the lobby. The lobby must be armed separately, after arming all affecting partitions first. Auto-Arming/Disarming If scheduling is used to automatically arm and/or disarm partitions, the common lobby partition does not automatically follow another partition that is programmed to arm or disarm the lobby. The lobby must be included as a partition to be armed/disarmed and must be scheduled as the last partition armed. If you are using auto-arming, make sure that the Auto-Arm Delay and Auto-Arm Warning periods, for the lobby partition, (fields 2*05 and 2*06) combined are longer than that of any other partition that affects the lobby. This causes the lobby to arm last.

Master Keypad Setup and Operation
Although this system has eight actual partitions, it provides an extra partition strictly for the purpose of assigning keypads as Master keypads for the system. Assigning any keypad to Partition 9 in Device Programming in the #93 Menu Mode makes that keypad a Master keypad. A Master keypad reflects the status of the entire system (Partitions 1-8) on its display at one time. This is useful because it eliminates the need for a building security officer to have to log on to various partitions from one partition's keypad to find out where an alarm has occurred. The following is a typical display: SYSTEM 12345678 STATUS RRNNA /B Possible status indications include:
A = Armed Away S = Armed Stay C = Comm Fail I = Armed Instant N = Not Ready B = Bypassed/Ready T = Trouble F = Fire Alarm L = Low System Battery M = Armed Maximum R = Ready / = Alarm P = AC Power Failure

The following is displayed for a fault condition on Zone 2 (Loading Dock Window) on Partition 1 (Warehouse) when a user logs on from a keypad on Partition 9: WHSE DISARMED HIT / FOR FAULTS Pressing [/] causes the following display to appear at Partition 1's keypad(s): FAULT 002 LOADING DOCK WINDOW Additional zone faults are displayed one at a time. To display a new partition's status, press [/] + Partition No. The Armed LED on a Master keypad is lit only if all partitions have been armed successfully. The Ready LED is lit only if all partitions are "ready to arm." The Ready LED is lit if only one partition is armed. Neither LED is lit if only some partitions are armed and/or only some partitions are ready. Press [/] + [0] or [/] + [9] to return to the master partition. Otherwise, if no keys are pressed for 2 minutes, the system automatically returns to the master partition The sounder on a Master keypad reflects the sound of the most critical condition on all of the partitions. The priority of the sounds, from most to least critical, is as follows: 1. Pulsing fire alarm sounds 2. T4 CO alarm sounds 3. Steady burglar alarm sounds

To obtain more information regarding a particular partition, enter [/] + Partition No. (e.g., [/] + [4]). This allows viewing only of that partition. In order to affect that partition, the user must use a code that has access to that partition. Also, in order for a user of any partition to log on to Partition 9 to view the status of all partitions, that user must have access to all partitions. Otherwise, access is denied.

2-3

VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT Installation and Setup Guide
4. Trouble sounds (rapid beeping) Silence the sounder by pressing any key on the Master keypad or a keypad on the partition where the condition exists. A Master keypad uses the same panics as Partition 1. Master keypad panics are sent to Partition 1, and will activate on Partition 1. Therefore, panics must be programmed for Partition 1.

• • Follow the guidelines given above for Mercantile Premises listing. Mount a shock sensor such as the ASC-SS1 to the control's backbox. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for proper sensor mounting. This sensor also must be wired to a hardwire zone. For safe and vault applications, a UL Listed contact must be used inside the cabinet through one of the knockouts for pry-off tamper purposes. This sensor also must be wired to a hardwire zone.

Installing the Control's Circuit Board
To install the circuit board in the cabinet, perform the following steps: Step 1 Action Hang the three mounting clips on the raised cabinet tabs. Refer to Figure 3-3 (Detail B). Make sure the clip orientation is exactly as shown in the diagram to avoid damage. This will also avoid problems with insertion and removal of the PC board. Insert the top of the circuit board into the slots at the top of the cabinet. Make certain that the board rests in the slots as indicated (Detail A). Swing the base of the board into the mounting clips and secure the board to the cabinet with the accompanying screws.

Installing the Keypads

Figure 3-3: Mounting the PC Board

Up to 31 addressable keypads (addresses 00-30) may be used (you may need to use an auxiliary power supply if the 750mA aux. output is exceeded). NOTE: Refer to the Alpha Vocabulary list found in the #93 Menu Mode in the Programming Guide for list of the words annunciated by the 6160V.

NOTE: The 6160V keypad is not to be used in SIA installations.
To wire the keypads, perform the following steps: Step 1 Action Determine wire gauge by referring to the Wire Run Length/Gauge table below. Wire Run Length/Gauge Table Wire Gauge Length #22 gauge 450 feet #20 gauge 700 feet #18 gauge 1100 feet #16 gauge 1750 feet Wire keypads to a single wire run or connect individual keypads to separate wire runs. The maximum wire run length from the control to a keypad, which is homerun back to the control must not exceed the lengths listed in the table. Run field wiring from the control to the keypads (using standard 4-conductor cable of the wire gauge determined in step 1). Connect the keypad(s) to terminals 6, 7, 8, and 9 on the control board, as shown in Figure 3-4. • • The length of all wire runs combined, regardless of the wire gauge, must not exceed 2000 feet when unshielded quad conductor cable is used (1000 feet if unshielded cable is run in conduit, which acts a shield, or if shielded cable is used). If more than one keypad is wired to one run, then the above maximum lengths must be divided by the number of keypads on the run (e.g., the maximum length is 225 feet if two keypads are wired on a #22 gauge run).

Addressing the Keypads The keypads will not operate until they are physically addressed and enabled in the system's Device Programming in the #93 Menu Mode. Set each keypad for an individual address (00-30) according to the keypad's instructions. Set an alpha keypad for address 00 and other keypads for higher addresses (00 and 01 are enabled in the system's default program). Any keypads set for address 02 and above will appear blank until they are enabled in the system's program. Each keypad must be set for a different address. • Do not set any keypads to address 31 (nonaddressable mode). They will interfere with other keypads (as well as other devices) connected to the keypad terminals. • If an “OPEN CIRCUIT” message is present on a keypad, data from the control is not reaching the keypad. Check your wiring. Supplementary Power Supply for Additional Keypads When the control’s auxiliary power load for all devices exceeds 750mA, you can power additional keypads from a regulated 12VDC power supply (e.g., ADEMCO AD12612 (1.2A)). Use a UL Listed, battery-backed supply for UL installations. Connect the additional keypads as shown in Figure 3-5, using the keypad wire colors shown. Be sure to observe the current ratings for the power supply used. • Make connections directly to the screw terminals as shown in Figure 3-5. • Be sure to connect the negative (–) terminal on the power supply unit to terminal 7 (–) on the control.

UL

This control complies with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) requirements for temporal pulse sounding of fire notification appliances.

Alarm Output Supervision When supervision is enabled, the VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT monitors the alarm output wiring for open and short circuit faults while the output is inactive. The system provides a trouble indication (Zone 970) when an open occurs; or when a short occurs between the Bell (+) and Bell (-) terminal wiring, or between the Bell (+) terminal wiring and earth ground.

UL

NOTE: When supervising the bell output (zone 970), only one device can be connected to the alarm output (terminals 4 and 5) for UL and Fire installations.

The VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT indicates the trouble condition regardless of whether the system is armed or disarmed. The zone displays on the keypads, reports to the event log, and transmits to the central station (if programmed) on Partition 1. The Contact ID event code is 321, Bell Trouble. The trouble is cleared from the display by entering the user code + OFF. Wiring the Alarm Output The wiring of the alarm output depends upon whether you are going to supervise the output or not.

Telephone Line Connections
Connect the main dialer output to telephone company lines using the cable supplied.

UL

The telephone line inputs have overvoltage protection in accordance with UL1459, as specified in UL985/UL1023.

The system is shipped defaulted for Contact ID format. It is the only format capable of uniquely reporting all 250 zones, as well as openings and closings for all 250 users. This requires central stations to be equipped with the Honeywell MX8000 receiver or equivalent. If you need an update, contact your distributor. To prevent the risk of shock, disconnect phone lines at the telco jack before servicing. If the communicator is connected to a PABX, be sure it has a backup power supply that can support the PABX for 24 hours (central station) or 60 hours (remote station). Many PABXs are not power-backed up, and this can result in a communication failure if power is lost.

Figure 3-11: 4-Wire Smoke Detectors Tamper Supervision for the Hardwired Zones The system can be programmed to monitor for either an open condition or a short condition of a tamper switch on zones 1-8. End-of-line supervision is required for this option. Wiring a Tamper Switch to Zones 1-8 The wiring of the tamper switch depends on whether the tamper switch and the sensor are normally open or normally closed. • If you are using a normally closed sensor, the tamper switch must be normally open. Refer to Figure 3-12 for the wiring configuration. • If you are using a normally open sensor, the tamper switch must be normally closed. Refer to Figure 3-13 for the wiring configuration. • For the normally closed sensor, program the zone for trouble on short. For the normally open sensor, program the zone for trouble on open. To wire a tamper switch on a hardwired zone, connect the EOL resistor at the last detector in the loop across the zone’s terminals. You must connect the EOL resistor at the last detector for proper operation of the tamper supervision. NOTE: These zones cannot be programmed for any 24 hour zone type and that tamper supervision is only in the disarmed state. When armed goes into alarm. NOTE: For zones with a response type of 9 or 16 (Fire), the tamper selection must be “0” none.

Section 3 – Installing the Control

Installing V-Plex Devices
The polling loop provides both power and data to the V-Plex devices, and is constantly monitoring the status of all zones enabled on the loop. The maximum current draw of all devices on the polling loop cannot total more than 128mA (unless the system uses a 4297 Polling Loop Extender Module). Devices that can be programmed via either DIP switches or the built-in unique serial number must be set for the serial number mode operation. All devices on the polling loop must be wired in parallel to the [+] and [-] polling loop terminals of the control panel (24 and 25). You can wire from device to device, or have multiple branches connected directly to the control panel in a star configuration. Compatible Polling Loop Devices

UL

The 4297 must be powered from the control panel’s Auxiliary Power Output or from a UL Listed supplementary power supply. • • For new polling loop installations, always use twisted pair wiring. In many cases, existing non-twisted pair wiring may be used, but it is more susceptible to interference from other sources, and may be problematic in installations with long wire runs or in high noise environments. Always locate polling loop wiring at least 6 inches (15cm) of AC power, telephone, or intercom wiring. The polling loop carries data between the control panel and the devices; interference on this loop can cause an interruption of communication. The polling loop can also cause outgoing interference on the intercom or phone lines. If this spacing cannot be achieved, shielded wire must be used. (Note that the maximum total wire length supported is cut in half when shielded wire is used.)

No more than 64mA may be drawn on any individual wire run.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If the installation needs to exceed or deviate from these parameters, refer to the application note on the Honeywell website for additional polling loop wiring configurations. To access the application note: 1. Go to the honeywell.com/security website 2. Click the Honeywell Security & Communications link. 3. Click the Commercial link. 4. Click the Documentation link. 5. Click the V-Plex Application Note.

Figure 3-14: Polling Loop Connections to the VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT Polling Loop Supervision A short on the polling loop is indicated by a trouble on zone 997 and reports as a trouble condition only. If annunciation is desired, program the zone as type 05. If a device on the polling loop fails (the panel cannot "see" that device), the system displays a trouble condition for all zones on that device. If the panel is armed when a device fails, and the zone is a burglary zone, the system will go into alarm. A trouble on zone 997 prevents a partition from being armed, unless all polling loop zones on that partition are bypassed. Using the 4297 Polling Loop Extender The 4297 Polling Loop Extender may be used to provide additional polling loop current, to extend the polling loop wire run length, and/or to provide individual electrically isolated polling loops. Refer to Figures 3-15 and 3-16, to follow. DO NOT use the 4197 Polling Loop Extender module with the VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT.

The 5881ENHC RF Receiver, 5869 Holdup Switch Transmitter and 5817CB Wireless Commercial Household Transmitter are listed for UL Commercial Burglary applications. All other RF receivers and transmitters are not listed for UL Commercial Burglary applications. Wireless devices are not ULC Listed and cannot be used for ULC Installations.

ULC

The following table lists the receivers that may be used and the number of zones they support.
5800 Series Receivers Receiver 5881ENHC Zones up to 250

RF System Operation and Supervision The 5800 RF system operation has the following characteristics: • The receiver responds to a frequency of 345MHz. • The receiver has a nominal range of 200 feet. • Supervised transmitters send a supervisory signal every 70-90 minutes. • Zones 988 and 990 are used to supervise the RF reception of receivers 2 and 1, respectively. The reception is supervised for two conditions: 1. The receiver goes “deaf” (doesn’t hear from any transmitter) within a programmed interval of time (defined by program field 1*30). 2. Proper RF reception is impeded (i.e., jamming or other RF interference). The control checks for this condition every 45 seconds.

The 5881ENHC receiver contains front and back tampers that permit its use in commercial burglary installations. You may only mount the 5881ENHC its own plastic housing. Otherwise, the receiver constantly reports a tamper condition. The control checks the receiver connections about every 45 seconds. The receiver supervisory zone is 8 + 2-digit receiver device address (for example, Device address 05 = supervisory zone 805). NOTE: This zone must be programmed with a response type (e.g., type 05 Day/Night Trouble) before it supervise the connection to the receiver. Use two identical receivers to provide either a greater area of coverage or redundant protection. They must be set for different addresses. NOTE: No more than two receivers can be installed. Any zone from 1 to 250 can be used as a 5800 Series wireless zone, with the exception of zone 64 (reserved for a wireless keypad).

RF System Installation Advisories

UL
• • •

The 5827 and 5804BD are not UL Listed and are not intended for use in UL Listed applications.

Place the receiver in a high, centrally located area. Do not place it on or near metal objects. This will decrease the range and/or block transmissions. Install the RF receiver at least 10 feet from the control panel or any keypads, to avoid interference from the microprocessors in these units. If dual receivers are used: a. They must be at least 10 feet from each other, as well as from the control panel and remote keypads. b. Each receiver must be set to a different device address. The receiver set to the lower address is considered the st 1 RF receiver for supervisory purposes. c. The House IDs must be the same. d. Using two receivers does not increase the number of transmitters the system can support (249 zones using the 5881ENHC, plus a wireless keypad).

Installation and Setup of 5881ENHC RF Receivers Take note of the address you select for the RF receiver, as this address must be enabled in the system’s Device Programming in the #93 Menu Mode.

Section 3 – Installing the Control
To install the 5881ENHC RF receiver, perform the following steps: Step 1 2 3 Action Mount the receiver, following the advisories stated previously. Set the DIP switches in the receiver for the address (01-07). See Figure 3-18. Make sure the address setting is not being used by another device (keypad, relay module, etc.). If installing a 5881ENHC, install a flat-head screw (supplied) in the case tamper tab as shown in Figure 3-17. When the receiver is pried from the wall, the tamper tab will break off and remain on the wall. This will activate a tamper switch in the receiver and cause generation of a tamper signal. Note that this signal will also be generated when the receiver’s front cover is removed. Connect the receiver’s wire harness to the keypad terminals (6, 7, 8, and 9). Plug the connector at the other end of the harness into the receiver. Refer to the Installation Instructions provided with the receiver for installations regarding antenna mounting, etc.

House ID Sniffer Mode This mode applies only if you are using a wireless keypad (e.g., 5827) or bi-directional devices (e.g., 5804BD). Use the House ID Sniffer mode to make sure you do not choose a House ID that is in use in a nearby system. The House ID must be programmed for the receiver in Device Programming in the #93 Menu Mode. To enter House ID Sniffer mode, enter your Installer Code + [#] + [2]. The receiver now “sniffs” for any House IDs in the area and displays them. Keep the receiver in this mode for 2 hours. Use a House ID that is not displayed. Exit the Sniffer mode by entering your Installer Code + OFF. As Sniffer mode effectively disables RF point reception, Sniffer mode cannot be entered while any partition is armed. 5800 Series Transmitters Setup 5800 Series transmitters have the following characteristics: • Transmitters have built-in serial numbers that must be enrolled in the system using the #93 Menu Mode Programming, or input to the control via the downloader. • Transmitters do not have DIP switches (except 5827, described separately). • Some transmitters, such as the 5816 and 5817, can support more than one “zone” (referred to as loops or inputs). Each loop must be assigned a different zone number. • For button-type transmitters (wireless keys), such as the 5804 and 5804BD, you must assign a unique zone number to each individual button used on the transmitter. Transmitter Input Types All transmitters have one or more unique factory-assigned input (loop) codes. Transmitters can be programmed as one of the following types:
Type RM (RF Motion) Description Sends periodic check-in signals, as well as fault and low-battery signals. The control panel automatically restores the zone to “ready” after a few seconds. This type is designed for facilities with multiple motion detectors that may fault and restore simultaneously. The transmitter must remain within the receiver’s range. NOTE: If using RF Motion with a door/window type transmitter, only loop 1 may be used. Sends periodic check-in signals, as well as fault, restore, and low-battery signals. The transmitter must remain within the receiver’s range. Sends all the signals that the RF type does, but the control does not supervise the check-in signals. The transmitter may therefore be carried off-premises. These send only fault signals. They do not send low-battery signals until they are activated. The transmitter may be carried off-premises.

RF (Supervised RF) UR (Unsupervised RF) BR (Unsupervised Button RF)

Transmitter Supervision Supervised RF transmitters send a check-in signal to the receiver at 70–90 minute intervals. If at least one check-in is not received from each supervised transmitter within a programmed period (field 1∗31), the “missing” transmitter number(s) and “CHECK” or “TRBL” are displayed. Unsupervised RF transmitters (5802MN, 5804) may be carried off the premises. Some transmitters have built-in tamper protection, and annunciate a “CHECK” or “TRBL” condition if covers are removed. If a loss of supervision occurs on a transmitter programmed for Fire, it reports in Contact ID as a Fire Trouble (373), not Loss of Supervision (381), to the central station.

Transmitter Battery Life Batteries in the wireless transmitters may last from 4 to 7 years, depending on the environment, usage, and the specific wireless device being used. Factors such as humidity, high or low temperatures, as well as large swings in temperature may all reduce the actual battery life in a given installation. The wireless system can identify a true low battery situation, thus allowing the dealer or user of the system time to arrange a change of battery and maintain protection for that point within the system. Button-type transmitters (e.g., 5802, 5804 and 5805-6) should be periodically tested, as these transmitters do not send supervisory check-in signals.

Installing 4101SN Relay Modules The 4101SN V-Plex Single Output Relay Module is a serial number polling loop output device. The 4101SN features the following: • Form C relay contacts rated at 2A, 28VAC/VDC with contact supervision. The position of the relay is supervised, but not the actual external contact wiring. • One class B/style B EOLR-supervised auxiliary input zone. • Operating power and communication with control panels via the V-Plex polling loop. • Electronics mounted in a small plastic case with tamper-protected cover. Connect the device to the polling loop, terminals 24 (+) and 25 (-). Be sure to observe polarity Installing X10 Devices X-10 devices are either plugged into standard AC outlets or wired into the AC electrical system by a licensed electrician, depending on the type of device used.

UL

X10 Devices are not permitted in UL installations.

Note each device’s House and Unit Code setup, as these codes will be used to program the devices in Output Programming in #93 Menu Mode described in the Programming Guide. X-10 devices require the use of a 1361X10 transformer in place of the regular 1361 transformer. X-10 devices respond to “on” and “off” commands sent from the panel through the 1361X10 transformer. To connect the 1361X10 transformer, see Connecting the Transformer, later in this section.

The keyswitch reports as user 0, if Open/Close reporting is enabled in field .40. Keyswitch Tamper Operation The tamper switch need not be used for fire or UL Household Burglary installations. For UL Commercial Burglary installations, the tamper switch must be wired to a zone (zone 7 in Figure 3-20). Program that zone for Day Trouble/Night Alarm (response type 5). When the keyswitch is removed from the wall, the tamper switch opens, causing an alarm or trouble on the zone. This also causes the control to disable keyswitch operation until the tamper is restored and the associated partition is disarmed. Wiring for the Remote Keyswitch To install the ADEMCO 4146 keyswitch, perform the following steps: Step 1 2 Action Connect the ADEMCO 4146 to the panel as shown in Figure 3-20.

Smoke Detector Reset
Output 1 may be used to reset 4-wire smoke detectors. Use this output to trigger a low current relay, and wire the power for the smoke detectors through the relay’s contacts. NOTE: The output is normally high (12VDC) and goes low when the User Code + Off is entered at the keypad. To install a relay for smoke detector reset, perform the following steps: Step 1 2 3 4 5 Action Connect power terminals of the relay to the panel’s auxiliary power (terminals 6 & 7). Connect trigger input of the relay to Output 1 on J7. Connect the “pole” (common) of the relay to terminal 6 of the control. Connect the positive side of the smoke detectors to the normally closed contact of the relay. Connect the negative side of the smoke detectors to terminal 7 of the control.

Communicators Connected to the ECP
The control can support an ECP Communicator (such as the 7847i, 7847i-E, GSMV, GSMHS, IGSMV, or IGSMHS) that connects to control panel’s keypad terminals. All messages programmed for transmission via the phone lines may also be sent via the Communicator. These messages are transmitted in Contact ID format regardless of the format programmed for the control in fields 45 and 47. We recommend that, if possible, you use Contact ID for the main dialer. If Contact ID is not used, certain types of reports are not sent.

ULC

For ULC installations, Contact ID is the only permitted format.

Operation The VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT features Dynamic Signaling Delay and Dynamic Signaling Priority message reporting when a Communicator is used. These options are accessed through data fields ,56 and ,57, respectively. The Dynamic Signaling feature is designed to reduce the number of redundant reports sent to the central station. The feature is described as follows: Dynamic Signaling Delay (Field ,56) Select the time the panel should wait for acknowledgment from the first reporting destination before it attempts to send a report to the second destination. Delays can be selected from 0 to 225 seconds, in 15-second increments. Dynamic Signaling Priority (Field ,57) Select the initial reporting destination for reports, Primary Dialer (0) or Communicator (1). The chart below provides an explanation of how the Dynamic Signaling feature functions.
If Priority (,57) is… Primary Phone No. ("0") Long Range Radio ("1") And message is… Acknowledged before delay expires Not acknowledged before delay expires Acknowledged before delay expires Not acknowledged before delay expires Then… Report is removed from queue and no message is sent to Communicator. Report is sent to both the Primary Phone No. and Communicator. Report is removed from queue and no message is sent to Primary Phone No. Report is sent to both the Primary Phone No. and Communicator.

Additional Communicator reporting options are defined by selecting the events for each subscriber ID in fields 58 and 59. The reporting events are Alarms, Troubles, Bypasses, Openings/Closing, System Events, and Test. Also, within an enabled category, the specific event must be enabled for dialer reporting. If, for instance, zone 10 is enabled to report, but zone 11 is not, zone 10 will report via the Communicator, but Zone 11 will not. Reports are transmitted from the VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT to the Communicator on a “first in/first out” basis. If events occur at the same time, they are transmitted in order of priority. The priority from most to least important is : Fire Alarms, Panic Alarms, Burglary Alarms, Fire Troubles, Non-Fire Troubles, Bypasses, Openings/Closings, Test messages, and all other types of reports. There are two subscriber IDs programmed into the Communicator: primary and secondary. These correspond to the two subscriber ID’s programmed into the control for each partition. If a subscriber ID for a partition is not programmed (disabling reports to that central station), the events enabled for the corresponding subscriber ID in the Communicator will not be transmitted.

3-20

Section 3 – Installing the Control
If the event is to be reported to both phone numbers (dual reporting), then reporting through the Communicator will be done in an alternating sequence. The first event in the queue is transmitted to both the primary and the secondary Communicator central stations before transmitting the second event. If split reporting is selected for the VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT, then the Communicator will send the appropriate reports to the primary and secondary central stations. Installing the ECP Communicator To install the ECP Communicator, perform the following steps: Step 1 2 Action Mount the Communicator according to the instructions that accompany the Communicator. Connect the data in/out terminals and voltage input terminals of the Communicator to the control’s keypad connection points, terminals 6, 7, 8, and 9. See Figure 3-21.

If communication is lost or a trouble condition occurs, both the Communicator and the control’s dialer can be programmed to send a Trouble message to the central station. NOTE: For complete information, see the Installation Instructions that accompany the Communicator. Trouble Messages The following messages are displayed on the 6160 when a problem exists on the Communicator: 1. “LRR Battery”: The battery connected to the Communicator is low. 2. “PLL out of Lock”: The Communicator has an internal fault and cannot transmit any messages. 3. “Early Power Detect”: RF power is detected without a valid transmission. 4. “Power Unattained”: Full RF power was never attained. 5. “Frwd. Power Loss”: RF power was not sustained throughout the transmission. 6. “Antenna Fault”: A problem with the antenna has been detected. 7. “LRR CRC is bad”: The Communicator’s EEPROM is corrupt (the internal CRC is bad). NOTES: Items 2 and 3 require factory service. Items 4 and 5 could be the result of a bad or low battery. If the item 6 message appears, check the antenna, connection and cable; if they are secure, factory service is required. All these messages are displayed in conjunction with the “CHECK 8xx” message, which indicates a trouble on the address to which the Communicator unit is programmed in the control. All of these events except Antenna Fault are sent to the event log and reported to the central station using Contact ID Event Code 333 (expansion device trouble). Antenna Fault uses Event Code 357. If the tamper is tripped on the Communicator, it uses Event Code 341 (expansion device tamper).

Installing the 4286 VIP Module
The 4286 VIP Module is an add-on accessory that permits the user to access the security system (and relays) via a TouchTone telephone. This may be done either from the premises or by calling the premises from a remote location. Only one VIP Module can be used in a security system. This module must be enabled as Device Address 4 in the Device Programming in #93 Menu Mode, and must be assigned to a partition.

UL

The 4286 VIP Module is not permitted in UL installations.

Detailed operating instructions for phone access to the security system are provided with the VIP Module.

The 4286 VIP Module features: • Allows the user to receive synthesized voice messages over the phone regarding the status of the security system. • Allows the user to arm and disarm the security system and perform most other commands using the telephone keypad. • Allows the user to control relays using the telephone keypad. • Provides voice annunciation over the phone to confirm any command that is entered. • Announces many of the same words that would normally be displayed on an alpha keypad under the same system conditions. Refer to the words in bold on the Alpha Vocabulary list found in the #93 Menu Mode in the Programming Guide. • Can be supervised for connection to control panel (annunciated and reported as Zone 804). The 4286 is wired between the control panel and the premises’ handset(s) (see Figure 3-23). It listens for TouchTones on the phone line and reports them to the control panel. During on-premises phone access, it powers the premises phones. During off-premises phone access, it seizes the line from the premises phones and any answering machines. • The VIP module will not operate until the device address (04) is enabled in the control’s Device Programming in #93 Menu Mode. • Do not mount the VIP Module on the cabinet door or attempt to attach it to the PC board.

RS-232 Connectivity
Serial Port Configuration
The enhanced serial port on the Vista Turbo Series operates at a speed of 9600bps. Earlier Vista series panels used a speed of 1200bps. (Please note that 1200bps option has been deleted and is no longer supported on Vista Turbo.) Depending on your application, you may need to adjust the configuration of your printer, home automation system or external software package to match the new faster speed. Consult the documentation for your external hardware or software for directions on how to do this. In some cases you may need to contact the vendor of this external hardware or software for an update patch or new driver.

Serial Port Connections
The J8 connector is no longer used for direct connect, serial printer or home automation applications. On all Vista Turbo Series panels, there are two methods of connecting to the serial (printer/automation) port: NOTE: TB4 and J9 support WIN-PAK and Pro-Watch, however if you want to connect to a printer you must use TB4 in order to get printer DSR supervision ("Printer Off Line"). Using flying leads from terminal block TB4 to a 9- or 25-pin serial connector. Plugging the VT-SERCBL cable into header J9. This connector terminates in a 9-pin serial connector. To connect this to a PC, you must use a standard straight through serial cable with a 9-pin connector on the panel end and the appropriate connector for your PC on the other end. The TB4 method is intended for permanent wiring, e.g. when connecting to WIN-PAK or Pro-Watch. The J9 method is ideal for direct-connect programming, where the serial connection being made is only temporary. When connecting via TB4, observe the TB4 pin configuration shown on the Summary of Connections label.

VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT Installation and Setup Guide

Connecting the Transformer
This product uses the 1361 transformer (1361CN in Canada). If you are using X-10 devices, the 1361X10 transformer interface must be used instead of the regular 1361 transformer. The 1361X10 supplies the control panel with AC, and also sends control pulses through the premises’ electrical system to control the X-10 devices. NOTE: Upon a total power failure, the control unit will ignore and not transmit alarm supervisory information for a stabilization period of 120 seconds following restoration of power. Within 60 seconds at the end of the stabilization period, the control unit shall initiate the transmission of a power restoration signal code. If this report code is enabled (see report code programming in the Programming Guide), this is the report that will be sent.

UL

Use 1361CN Transformer in Canadian installations.

Power Limiting Outputs
All outputs are power-limited as per UL985/UL1023. The following table shows the maximum current that may be drawn from each output. Output Auxiliary Power Polling Loop Alarm Output Maximum Current Draw 750mA 128mA 1.7A

For Household Fire or Combination Household Fire/Burglary Installation: The total current drawn from the auxiliary power, the polling loop, and the alarm output combined must not exceed 750mA to comply with the battery independence requirements in UL985. For Household Burglary-Only Installations: The total current drawn from the alarm output may be up to 1.7A. A battery must be installed to supply the current of the combined auxiliary power, polling loop, and alarm output in excess of 750mA. Failure to observe the polling loop current rating will cause polling loop malfunction. Failure to observe the auxiliary power current rating will result in a battery that does not charge properly or possibly a tripped circuit breaker. To connect the transformer to the control, perform the following steps: Step 1 2 3 Action Connect all installed devices to the control. Wire the 1361 Transformer (1361CN in Canada) to the panel (before connecting the battery) as shown in Figure 3-24, or wire the 1361X10 Transformer as shown in Figure 3-25 (if using X-10 devices). Plug the transformer into a 24-hour, uninterrupted, 120VAC, 60Hz outlet. After a few seconds, the keypad display appears.

NOTE: WHEN POWERING UP THE PANEL, PLUG THE TRANSFORMER IN BEFORE CONNECTING THE BATTERY.

Panel Earth Ground Connections
In order for the lightning transient protective devices in this product to be effective, the designated earth ground terminal (terminal 30) must be terminated in a good earth ground. Recommended wire gauge for the ground connection is #16 AWG, run no farther than 30 feet. The following are examples of good earth grounds available at most installations: • Metal Cold Water Pipe: Use a noncorrosive metal strap (copper is recommended) firmly secured to the pipe to which the ground lead is electrically connected and secured. • • AC Power Outlet Ground: Available from 3-prong, 120VAC, power outlets only. To test the integrity of the ground terminal, use a three-wire circuit tester with neon lamp indicators, such as the UL-Listed Ideal Model 61-035, or equivalent, available at most electrical supply stores.

The panel requires the earth ground connection for its lightning transient protection devices.

Determining the Control’s Power Supply Load
Use the tables that follow to calculate the total current for the Auxiliary Power, the Alarm Output, and the Polling Loop. In each table, multiply each device’s standby and/or alarm current by the number of units used. 1. In Table 1, enter devices used on the polling loop. Calculate total current draw on the polling loop. Table 1: Total Polling Loop Current Draw Polling Loop Device Current # of Units Total

Determining the Size of the Standby Battery
The cabinet supplied with the control panel can house batteries of up to 12V, 14AH (two 12V, 7AH batteries wired in parallel). The VISTA-ULKT kit provides a cabinet that can house batteries of up to 12V, 17.2AH and that may be used with this panel. The total standby current drawn from the auxiliary power and polling loop outputs combined must be limited to 270mA when 14AH batteries are used; and to 390mA when 17.2AH batteries are used.

DO NOT use Gates batteries (sealed lead-acid type). These batteries require a different charging voltage than is supplied by the panel.

UL UL

The maximum battery capacity in UL installations is 14AH.

Household Fire or Combination Household/Fire/Burglary installations require the use of a backup battery that is capable of providing 24 hours of standby time followed by 4 minutes of alarm time. UL1023 Household Burglaryonly installations require the use of a backup battery that is capable of providing 4 hours of standby time followed by 4 minutes of alarm time.

The #93 Menu Mode is an interactive mode through which much of the system’s programming is done. In this mode, there are “question and answer” prompts that can be accessed once Data Field Program Mode has been entered. These prompts require a 2-line alpha keypad (6160). After programming all system-related programming fields in the usual way, press #93 while still in programming mode to display the first choice of the menu-driven programming functions. Press 0 (NO) or 1 (YES) in response to the displayed menu selection. Pressing 0 will display the next choice in sequence.

VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT Installation and Setup Guide

Zone Response Type Definitions

Each zone must be assigned a zone type, which defines the way in which the system responds to faults in that zone. There are three keypad-activated zones (panic keys; see note) for each partition, a polling loop supervision zone, and four RF supervisory zones, two for each RF receiver installed. Zone types are defined below. Type 00: Zone Not Used Program with this zone type if the zone is not used. Type 01: Entry/Exit #1 Burglary Provides entry delay whenever the zone is faulted and the system is armed in the AWAY or STAY mode. When the panel is armed in the INSTANT or MAXIMUM mode, no entry delay is provided. Exit delay begins whenever the control is armed, regardless of the arming mode selected. These delays are programmable. Assign this zone type to zones that are used for primary entry to and exit from the facility. Type 02: Entry/Exit #2 Burglary Provides a secondary entry delay, if the system is armed in the AWAY or STAY modes and the zone is faulted. When the panel is armed in the INSTANT or MAXIMUM mode, no entry delay is provided. Secondary exit delay begins whenever the control is armed, regardless of the arming mode selected. These delays are programmable. Assign this zone type to zones that are used for entry and exit of the facility and require more time than the primary entry and exit point. Delay times for this zone type must be greater than those for zone type 01 (e.g., a garage, loading dock, or basement door). Type 03: Perimeter Burglary Provides an instant alarm if the zone is faulted and the system is armed in the AWAY, STAY, INSTANT, or MAXIMUM mode. Assign this zone type to all exterior door and window zones. Type 04: Interior, Follower Provides a delayed alarm (using the programmed entry delay time) if an entry/exit zone is faulted first. Otherwise it produces an instant alarm. It is active when the system is armed in the AWAY or MAXIMUM mode, but the MAXIMUM mode eliminates the entry delay. If the Interior Follower zone is programmed for one of the STAY modes (default is STAY mode 1), it is automatically bypassed when the panel is armed in the STAY or INSTANT mode. Assign this zone type to a zone covering an area such as a foyer, lobby, or hallway through which one must pass upon entry or exit (to and from the keypad). Type 05: Trouble by Day/Alarm by Night Provides an instant alarm if the zone is faulted and the system is armed in the AWAY, STAY, INSTANT, or MAXIMUM mode. During the disarmed state (day), the system annunciates a latched trouble sounding from the keypad (and a central station report, if desired).

Assign this zone type to a zone that contains a foilprotected door or window (such as in a store), or to a zone covering a sensitive area such as a stock room or drug supply room. It can also be used on a zone in an area where immediate notification of an entry is desired. Type 06: 24-Hour Silent Alarm Sends a report to the central station but provides no keypad display or sounding. Assign this zone type to a zone containing an Emergency button. Type 07: 24-Hour Audible Alarm Sends a report to the central station and provides an alarm sound at the keypad and an audible external alarm. Assign this zone type to a zone containing an Emergency button. Type 08: 24-Hour Auxiliary Alarm Sends a report to central station and provides an alarm sound at the keypad only. (No bell output is provided.) Assign this zone type to a zone an Emergency button or one containing monitoring devices such as water sensors or temperature sensors. Type 09: Supervised Fire (Without Verification) Provides a fire alarm on a short circuit and a trouble condition on open circuit. A fire alarm produces a pulsing of the bell output. A zone of this type is always active and cannot be bypassed. Type 10: Interior with Delay Provides entry and exit delays (using the programmed entry and exit delay times) when armed in the AWAY mode. Provides only exit delay when armed in the MAXIMUM mode (no entry delay). If the Interior with Delay zone is programmed for one of the STAY modes (default is STAY mode 1), it is automatically bypassed when the panel is armed in the STAY or INSTANT mode. Delay begins whenever sensors in this zone are violated, regardless of whether or not an entry/exit delay zone was tripped first. Assign this zone type to a zone covering an area such as a foyer, lobby, or hallway through which one must pass upon entry or exit (to and from the keypad). Type 12: Not Used Type 14: CO Detector Alarm Sends a report to the central station and displays a CO text message at the keyboard. Upon a CO alarm only the keypad’s sounder will annunciate. The external bell will not sound at all. A zone of this type is always active and cannot be bypassed. Type 16: Fire With Verification Provides a fire alarm on a short circuit and a trouble condition on open circuit. An initial short detection causes 7-second smoke detector power reset. A subsequent short detection within 90 seconds of the reset causes a fire alarm. A fire alarm produces a pulsing of the bell output. A zone of this type is always active and cannot be bypassed.

Section 4 – Programming
Type 20: Arm-STAY (5800 Series devices only) Causes the system to arm in the STAY mode when the zone is activated. Type 21: Arm-AWAY (5800 Series devices only) Causes the system to arm in the AWAY mode when the zone is activated. Type 22: Disarm (5800 Series devices only) Causes the system to disarm when the zone is activated. Type 23: No Alarm Response Used on a zone when an output relay action is desired, but with no accompanying alarm (e.g., for lobby door access). Type 27: Access Point Assign this zone type to an input device (hardwired zone, wireless zone, keypad, access control relay, etc.) that controls an access entry point (e.g., a door). The access point entry relay can be assigned to an access control relay (controlled by the VISTA-128BPT/VISTA250BPT), ECP relay (4204), or to the access control system independent of the control panel. Type 28: Not Used. Type 29: Momentary Exit Used to cause an access point programmed for entry to revert to an exit point for 15 seconds. After the 15 seconds, it automatically reverts to an entry point. This zone type should be used only with VistaKey modules.
NOTE FOR PANIC KEYS: Keypad panic zones share the same zone response type for all eight partitions, but panics may be individually enabled for each partition. IMPORTANT! FAULT ANNUNCIATION Polling loop and RF troubles (zones 988, 990, and 997) report as trouble conditions only, and as such, should be assigned zone type 05 if annunciation is desired. See Polling Loop Supervision and RF System Operation and Supervision in SECTION 3 Installing the Control for more information.

Zone Input Type Definitions
Each zone must be assigned an input type, which defines the where the system will “look” for status of the zone (RF receiver, polling loop, etc.). Zone input types are defined below. Type 01 Hardwired (HW) Reserved for the built-in hardwired zones 1-9. Type 02 RF Motion (RM) Select for 5800 Series RF transmitters. Sends periodic check-in signals, as well as fault and low-battery signals. The control panel automatically restores the zone to “ready” after a few seconds. This type is designed for facilities with multiple motion detectors that may fault and restore simultaneously. The transmitter must remain within the receiver’s range. NOTE: If using RF Motion with a door/window type transmitter, only loop 1 may be used. Type 03 Supervised RF (RF) Select for 5800 Series RF transmitters that will be supervised for check-in signals. The transmitter must remain within the receiver’s range. Type 04 Unsupervised RF (UR) Select for 5800 Series RF transmitters that will not be supervised for check-in signals. The transmitter may therefore be carried off-premises. Type 05 Unsupervised Button RF (BR) Select for 5800 Series RF transmitters specifically designed for this input type. Check the transmitter’s instructions for proper programming of the input type. These transmitters send only fault signals. They do not send low-battery signals until they are activated. The transmitter may be carried off-premises. Type 06 Serial Number Polling Loop (SL) Select for polling loop devices with a built-in serial number. For VistaKey, select this type for Door Status Monitor Backup DSMB. If local power to the VistaKey is lost, a V-Plex SIM, located on the VistaKey board, is powered directly from the polling loop and reports the state of the DSM via the standard V-Plex polling system. NOTE: To obtain the DSMB function, the Input Type must be defined as 06 and the next prompt in Zone Programming (Access Point) must contain the Access Point number (01-15) (address of the VistaKey module). Type 07 DIP Switch Loop (DP) Select for polling loop devices that use DIP switches for programming the zone number of the device. Type 08 Dip Switch Polling Loop Right Loop (PS) Select for the second loop of two-zone polling loop devices. Type 09 Console Input (CS) Select when this zone is to be controlled by a keypad input (user code + [#] + [7] + [3]) for access control. Type 10 Not Used Type11 VistaKey Door Status Monitor (DSM) Select this input type when using a VistaKey module connected to a door. This must be programmed for each VistaKey module to provide the DSM zone mapping a panel zone. If this is not programmed the panel will not “see” the VistaKey module. It is also used to determine the door is opened after a card swipe or if the door is being held open. The device is normally a magnetic switch mounted on the door.

4-7

VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT Installation and Setup Guide
The status of the switch is different when the door is in an open position. Type 12 VistaKey Request to Exit (RTE) Use this input type to map an uncommitted RTE zone to an alarm panel zone. This input type is not normally used if the zone is used for a request-to-exit function. Type 13 VistaKey General Purpose (GP) This input type operates in the same manner as other VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT alarm panel zones and is provided so that a zone in the proximity of the VistaKey can be wired without having to run additional wiring from the control panel.

VistaKey Dialer Enables
When the VistaKey is installed with an alarm system, the system defaults are set so that the system does not send reports to the central station. The programming is accomplished in field 1∗35 for the following events: • ACS Troubles - To enable or disable ACS trouble reporting. • ACS Bypasses - To enable or disable ACS bypass reporting. • ACS System - To enable or disable ACS system reporting, (i.e., ACS module reset). • ACS Alarms - To enable or disable ACS alarm reporting. • Dialer (Trace) - To enable or disable access grant/denial events sent to the central station.

Using an RF Transmitter Zone
A button type RF transmitter (5804) can be used to provide access or egress for up to 4 doors. One button will control one door. Also, a button can be used to provide access or egress due to a panic or duress condition. To program the RF transmitter for access control, perform the following steps: Step 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Action Enter Zone Programming in the #93 Menu Mode. Program the zone with a response type 27 (Access Point). Enter the access point number (00-31) of the door. Indicate whether RF device is for entry or exit. Enter the partition number Enter the input type: button RF (03). Enter the loop number. Enroll the serial number

Access Control of an Entry/Exit Point
The control can send entry and exit requests to the VistaKey ACS utilizing keypads and button-type (BR) RF transmitters. A zone is programmed with a response type 27 (Access Point) and an appropriate input type (console, RF).

See Zone Programming in the Programming Guide for a detailed explanation. • RF buttons and pendants must be assigned to a user number in order to function. See SECTION 9: User Access Codes for the procedure. An RF transmitter will not provide access or grant if the system is in any test mode.

Control of Lighting and Appliances
Lighting and appliances can be controlled when an access or exit event occurs. Lights or appliances can be automatically turned on or off when a valid entry or egress request is presented at an access point. To control these devices, the VISTA-128BPT/VISTA250BPT relays or the ACS relays or triggers are used with keypads and/or RF transmitters whose response type is Access Point (27). To program the control of lighting and appliances, perform the following steps:

See SECTION 1: General Description for the table listing the differences between the VISTA-128BPT and the VISTA-250BPT control panels. All other features are identical.

Programming Data Fields
Data field programming involves making the appropriate entries for each of the data fields. Start Data Field programming by entering the installer code + 8 + 0 + 0 + 0.

FIELD

TITLE and DATA ENTRIES Installer Code
Enter 4 digits, 0-9

EXPLANATION
The Installer Code is a 4-digit code reserved for installation company use. This is the only code that can be used to enter the Program Mode from the keypad. This code cannot be used to disarm the system if it isn’t used to arm the system. This code cannot be used to re-enter Program Mode if Program Mode is exited by the *98 command. If enabled, the activation time of the window is randomized up to 30 minutes and is initialized by either of two methods: User Code + [#] + [41]Initiates the random schedule for all devices in the partition. User Code + [#] + [42]Initiates the random schedule for all devices in the partition with a time window within 6 PM and 5 AM. If enabled the system sends notification messages via the RS232 port (TB4). Field *14 must be set for RS232 port (1). NOTE: If enabled, the system also sends fault and restore messages via the RS232 port (TB4). NOTE: While in a communication session with Compass, system events will not operate.

Enter 02-15 multiplied by 15 seconds. 00 = no delay.

EXPLANATION
Entry delay defines the delay time that allows users to re-enter the premises through a door that has been programmed as an entry delay door and disarm the system without sounding an alarm. The system must be disarmed within this period or an alarm will occur. NOTE: The delay may not exceed 45 seconds for UL installations. Exit delay defines the delay period that allows users to leave the premises through a door that has been programmed as an entry/exit delay door after arming the system without setting off the alarm. Entry Delay #2 is used for a secondary door requiring a longer delay than those assigned to Entry Delay #1. NOTE: The delay may not exceed 45 seconds for UL installations. Exit Delay #2 is used for a secondary door requiring a longer delay than those assigned to Exit Delay #1. NOTE: The delay may not exceed 60 seconds for UL installations. Defines the length of time the Bell Output and the keypad’s sounder will sound for all audible alarms. Must be minimum 16 minutes for UL Commercial Burglary installations.

Keyswitch Assignment

The keyswitch requires the use of zone 7 wired loop (zone 7 is no longer available as protection zone). The fire and panic alarm voltage triggers (J7) automatically become ARMING and READY status outputs for the Keyswitch LEDs. Openings/closing report as user “0” if enabled in field *40. If enabled, produces ½-second external alarm sounding (“ding”) at the end of exit delay (or after kissoff from the central station, if sending closing reports). NOTE: If using a keyfob, when the button is pressed, either for arming or disarming, the bell will ding indicating that the button is working. Must be 1 for UL installations. If enabled, sounding at the keypad (rapid beeping) occurs when AC power is lost (sounding occurs about 2 minutes after actual AC loss).

EXPLANATION
If enabled, arming this partition causes the system to attempt to arm the lobby partition automatically. To enable this field, field 1*18 must also be enabled (partition-specific). NOTES: The lobby cannot be armed unless all partitions programmed for “affect” (field 1*18) is already armed. If his field is enabled, Field 1*18 for this partition must also be enabled. Exit Error Logic functions as follows: the system at the end of the exit delay, if a door is left open or an interior zone is faulted, starts the entry delay period, and sounds the bell(s), siren(s), and keypad sounders for the duration of entry delay. This gives the user time to re-enter the premises and disarm the system before exit error occurs. If the user does not re-enter the premises and disarm the system, the system bypasses the faulted entry/exit and/or interior zone(s). The rest of the system is armed. In addition, the following dialer reports are sent to the central station if programmed: Exit Error by Zone Entry/Exit or Interior Alarm with the zone number Bypass reports NOTE: This field has been eliminated in the Vista-128SIA software.

Exit Delay Reset
0 = disable 1 = enable

If enabled, when the panel is armed, the normal exit delay begins. After the user exits, closes the door and then re-enters the premises, the exit delay time is reset to the programmed value. NOTES: Exit Delay Reset is designed to allow an operator to re-enter the premises to retrieve a forgotten item without triggering an alarm. This feature may only be activated once after arming.

UL
Cross-Zoning

Exit Delay Reset is not suitable for use in a UL installation.

UL

Cross Zoning is not suitable for use in a UL installation.

Cross Zoning is designed so that a combination of two zones must be faulted within a 5-minute period of each other (whereas the first zone remains faulted, when the second zone trips) to cause an alarm on either zone. This prevents momentary faults from one of the zones from causing an alarm condition. You can select four "sets" of cross-zones (programmed in data fields 1*22, 1*23, 1*24, and 1*25), keeping in mind the following: • Both zones in each set must protect the same area. • When cross-zoning motion sensors, both device's areas of protection must be situated so that both units will trip at the same time if their shared protected area is violated. • Both zones in each set must be in the same partition. DO NOT cross-zone a fire zone with a burglary zone under any circumstance. DO NOT cross a fire zone with another fire zone under any circumstance.

5-7

VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT Installation and Setup Guide Conditions That Affect Cross-Zone Operation
• • • • If one of the zones in a pair is bypassed or has a zone response type set to 0, the cross-zoning feature does not apply. If an entry/exit zone is paired with an interior follower zone, be sure to enter the entry/exit zone as the first zone of the pair. This ensures that the entry delay time is started before the follower zone is processed. If a relay is programmed to activate on a fault of one of the zones, the relay activates without the other zone being faulted. If a relay is programmed to activate on either an alarm or trouble, both zones must trip before the relay will activate, and both zones must restore for the relay to deactivate (if relay is programmed to deactivate on a Zone List Restore).

If the one of the zones trips and the second zone does not trip within the 5-minute period, an “error” message is reported to the central station. The Contact ID event code is 378.

There are six entries for this field as follows: Trace, Trouble, Not Used, Bypass, System and Alarm. If Trace is enabled, access grant/denial events sent to the central station. For the other events, if enabled, a report is sent to the central station. If enabled, the system defeats Call Waiting on the first outgoing call attempt to both the primary and secondary numbers. NOTES: After the panel's initial call to report the alarm, the panel may attempt to make an additional call, perhaps for a cancel or a zone restoral. If Call Waiting is not defeated, an operator at the central station attempting to contact the premises (to verify whether the alarm is valid) hears the phone ringing indefinitely and must to dispatch on the call. DO NOT enable this feature unless Call Waiting is being used. If enabled, backlighting for the keypad display remains on at all times. Otherwise the backlighting comes on when a key is pressed. NOTE: When a key is pressed, display backlighting turns on for all keypads in that partition. NOTE: This field affects only standard keypads, not graphic/touch-screen keypads. If enabled, when more than 40 key depressions are received without a valid sequence (arm, disarm, etc.), the control panel disables the wireless keypad.

UL ULC
General

• • •

You must program Bypass and Auto-Arm Fail reports for UL installations. Auto-disarming is not permitted in UL installations. You must not program Random Scheduling of Time Driven Events for UL installations.

Scheduling is not approved for use in ULC installations.

The scheduling features allow certain operations to be automated, such as arming, disarming, bypassing of zones, and activating relay outputs. The system uses time windows (a programmed period of time with a start and stop time) for defining open/close schedules, holiday schedules, user-defined temporary schedules, and access schedules for users. Scheduled events are programmed by user-friendly menu modes of programming (#80, #81, #83, and #93 modes), explained in detail in this section. These menus take you step by step through the options.

Auto Arming

ULC

Auto Arming is not a ULC Listed feature.

The system can automatically arm (AWAY Mode) a partition at the end of a pre-determined closing (arming) time window. Auto Arming can be delayed three ways: by use of the Auto-Arm Delay, the Auto-Arm Warning, or by manually extending the closing (arming) time window with a keypad command. The system can also automatically bypass any open zones when auto arming.

Auto-Arm Delay
Auto-Arm Delay provides a delay (grace period) before auto arming. It starts at the end of the closing time window. The delay is set in 4-minute increments, up to 56 minutes in partition-specific program field 2*05. At the expiration of this delay, the Auto-Arm Warning will start.

Auto-Arm Warning
The Auto-Arm Warning causes the keypad sounder to warn the user of an impending Auto-Arm. The warning can be set from 1 to 15 minutes prior to the arming in partition-specific program field 2*06. During this period the keypad beeps every 15 seconds and displays “AUTO ARM ALERT.” During the last 60 seconds, the keypads beep every 5 seconds. The panel arms at the conclusion of the Auto-Arm Warning period.

Extend Closing Window
A user can manually delay the arm (closing) time window by 1 or 2 hours. This is done by entering a keypad command (User Code + #82), which then prompts the user to enter the desired extension time of 1 or 2. This feature is useful if a user must stay on the premises later than usual. The Auto-Arm delay and warning periods begin at the end of the extension.

Force Arm

ULC

Force Arming is not a ULC Listed feature and must be disabled for ULC installations.

The Force Arm option causes the panel to attempt to bypass any faulted zones prior to auto arming (panel performs a force-arm). This option is set in partition-specific program field 2*08.

6-1

VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT Installation and Setup Guide Auto Disarming
The system can automatically disarm a partition at the end of a pre-determined opening (disarm) time window. The disarming time can be delayed by using the Auto-Disarm Delay feature.

Disarm Delay
Auto-Disarm Delay provides a delay before auto disarming. This delay is added to the end of the disarm time window. The delay is set in 4-minute increments, up to 56 minutes, in partition-specific program field 2*07.

Restrict Disarming
This option allows disarming by users only during the disarm time window and during the arming time window (in case user needs to re-enter premises after manually arming the partition). This option is set in partition-specific field 2*10. If field 2*10 is set, we highly recommend setting field 2*11, as well. This field allows the partition to be disarmed outside the arm/disarm time windows only if the partition is in alarm.

Exception Reports
This option allows the reporting of openings and closings to the central station only if the arming and disarming occurs outside of the predetermined opening and closing time windows. It is set in partition-specific field 2*09. The system can be programmed to send Failed to Open and Failed to Close reports if the partition is not armed or disarmed by the end of the corresponding time window.

Limitation of Access of Users by Time
A user’s access to the system can be limited to a certain time period. Outside this time, that user’s code is inactive. The system provides up to eight access schedules, each consisting of two time windows (typically one for opening, one for closing) for each day of the week and two time windows for holidays. The access schedules are programmed in the #80 Menu Mode, and enabled when a user’s access code is added to the system. If a user tries to operate the system outside the schedule, the alpha keypad displays “Access Denied.”

Time-Driven Events
The system can automatically activate and de-activate relays at predetermined times to turn lights or other devices on and off. The Time-Driven events can be activated at different times in relation to a time window: • At the beginning of a time window • At the end of a time window • During a time window (on at beginning of window, off at end) • At both the beginning and end of the time window (e.g., to sound a buzzer at the beginning and end of a coffee break) • Random time at the start of the time window (occurs within 30 minutes after the start of the time window) • Random time at the end of the time window (occurs within 30 minutes after the end of the time window) • Random during the time window (begins within 30 minutes after the start of the time window and ends within 30 minutes after the end of the time window) The system can perform the same actions on a daily basis, or can perform an action only once (e.g., turn on the porch light this Wednesday at 8:00 PM). The system also provides up to 20 programmable “timers” available to the end user for the purpose of activating output devices at preset times and days.

Time Window Definitions
Scheduled events are based on time windows, (periods of time) during which an event may take place. The system supports up to 20 time windows, each defined by a “Start” time and a “Stop” time. The windows are shared by all eight partitions, and are used when programming the various schedules (open/close, limitation of access), as well as for Time-Driven event control.

Scheduling Example
A store that has the following hours:
Monday to Friday Saturday Sunday Holidays 9am to 6pm 10am to 4pm Closed Closed

6-2

Section 6 – Scheduling Options
The owner desires the following time windows to allow time for employees to arm or disarm the system:
Monday to Friday Saturday Sunday & Holidays Open (disarm) Close (arm) Open (disarm) Close (arm) Closed 8am to 9am 6pm to 6:30pm 9am to 10am 4pm to 4:30pm

For this schedule, the four time windows need to be programmed:
Window 1 2 3 4 Start 8am 9am 4pm 6pm Stop 9am 10am 4:30pm 6:30pm Purpose Monday-Friday open window Saturday open window Saturday close window Monday-Fri. close window

Using the #80 Menu Mode, the installer can program open/close schedules by assigning a time window to a day of the week (windows are entered as 2-digit entries)
Mon Op/Cl 01/04 Tue Op/Cl 01/04 Wed Op/Cl 01/04 Thu Op/Cl 01/04 Fri Op/Cl 01/05 Sat Op/Cl 02/03 Sun Op/Cl 00/00 Hol Op/Cl 00/00

NOTE: 00 is entered for those days on which the store is closed. Employees can arm and disarm the system, when programmed, within the open and close time windows without causing a report to be sent to the central station (reporting by exception, field 2*09). The system can be programmed to automatically arm/disarm in case an employee fails to arm/disarm manually (auto-arm/auto-disarm).

Open/Close Schedules Definitions
General
The open/close scheduling is controlled by one of three schedules. Each schedule consists of one time window for openings and one time window for closings. There are three types of schedules available: Daily, Holiday, and Temporary.

Daily Schedule
Each partition can have one daily schedule consisting of one opening window and one closing window per day.

Holiday Schedule
A holiday schedule overrides the regular daily schedule on selected holidays throughout the year. The opening and closing windows are programmed in the daily schedule, but the holidays themselves are defined in Holiday Schedule Programming in the #80 Menu Mode.

Temporary Schedule
The temporary schedule provides a method for the end user to override the daily and holiday schedules. It consists of one opening window and one closing window for each day of the week. The schedule takes effect for up to one week, after which it is automatically deactivated. This schedule is programmed using the #81 Temporary Schedule Menu Mode.

Additional Schedules
Additional opening and closing schedules can be programmed using the Time-Driven Event Programming. For example, a schedule for normal store openings/closings can be programmed with a daily open/close schedule, and another open/close schedule for a lunch hour can be programmed using the Time-Driven event schedule programming. Refer to “Time-Driven Events” later in this section for detailed information.

Open/Close Reports by Exception
The system can help reduce communication traffic to the central station by using the Open/Close Reports by Exception feature. The Open/Close by Exception option suppresses these reports from being sent to the central station if an arm or disarm is done within the expected time window. Reports are only sent if the arm or disarm occurs outside the assigned time window. The system keeps a record of all openings/closings in its event log. If a disarming occurs during a closing window (for example, a person who arms the system forgets something and has to re-enter), the Opening report (although outside of the opening window) will not be sent (as long as that disarming occurs within the closing window). This option is programmed in partition-specific program field 2*09.

6-3

VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT Installation and Setup Guide Example of Open/Close Exception Reporting & Scheduling
The following chart gives an example of how the Open/Close by Exception reporting works. 6:01PM 5:59AM 6AM 9AM 9:01AM 3:59PM 4PM 6PM
Early Opening reports are sent if system is manually disarmed before opening window begins. Early and Late Opening and Closing reports are programmable options in the Report Code Programming. They are not dependent on the programming of the Exception Reporting option. Opening Window No reports are sent if system is disarmed during this time window. If an arming occurs, a Closing report is sent to the central station regardless of how the Exception Reporting option is set. Auto-disarm delay begins. Auto-disarm occurs after delay (if auto-disarm is enabled). Missed Opening reports are sent if manual disarming has not occurred at expiration of opening window. Late Opening reports are sent if disarm occurs after the opening window expires. Early Closing reports are sent if manual arming occurs before the closing window begins. Missed Opening/Closing type reports are programmed in the Report Code Programming. The Exception Reporting option must be set for these to be sent. Closing Window No reports are sent if system is armed* during this time window. * or disarmed if user needs to reenter premises.

6:01PM

5:59AM

Auto-arm delay begins. Auto-arm warning begins. Auto-arm occurs after warning expires (if autoarm is enabled). Missed Closing reports are sent if manual arming has not occurred at expiration of closing window. Late Closing reports are sent if system is manually armed after the closing window expires.

Scheduling Menu Mode
The #80 Scheduling Menu Mode is used to program most of the scheduling and timed-event options. Enter Installer Code + [#] + [8] + [0] from the normal operating mode. NOTE: Only users with an Installer or Master level user code may enter the #80 mode. The following can be programmed while in this mode: • time windows • open/close schedules to each partition • holiday schedules • Time-Driven events (for system functions and relay activation) • limitation of access schedules Some scheduling features are programmed in Data Field Programming Mode (Installer Code + 8 0 0 0). Some features are programmed in the #93 Menu Mode. The programming scheduling fields are listed below.
System-Wide Fields: *04 Enable Random Timers 1*74 –1*75 Relay timeout values 2*01-2*02 Daylight saving time options Allow disarming outside window if alarm 2*11 occurs Partition-Specific fields: 2*05 Auto-arm delay value 2*06 Auto-arm warning time 2*07 Auto-disarm delay value 2*08 Force-arm enable 2*09 Open/Close Reporting by Exception 2*10 Restrict disarm only during windows #93 Menu Mode (System Group #3) Scheduling related report codes

Event-driven options are programmed using Output Programming in #93 Menu Mode. Relay activation can also be TimeDriven and that those are programmed using the #80 Menu Mode. Refer to the Time-Driven Event Programming later in this section for the procedure.

Section 6 – Scheduling Options

Temporary Schedules
Each partition can be assigned a temporary schedule, which overrides the regular open/close schedule (and the holiday schedule). This schedule takes effect as soon as it is programmed, and remains active for up to one week. Only users with the authority level of manager or higher can program temporary schedules. A temporary schedule affects only the partition from which it is entered. Temporary schedules can also be reused at later dates simply by scrolling (pressing [#]) to the “DAYS?” prompt and activating the appropriate days. This should be considered when defining daily time windows.

General Information
Downloading allows the operator to remotely access, program, and control the security system over normal telephone lines, IP, or GSM Communicators. Anything that can be done directly from the keypad can be done remotely, using ADEMCO’s COMPASS downloading software. To communicate with the control panel, the following is required: System Attributes Processor Disk Space (free) Monitor Resolution Application Operating System Minimum Intel, Pentium II – 256 MB RAM Vista – 1GB RAM 1.5 GB 800 x 600 Recommended Intel, Pentium, IV, 512 MB RAM (or above) 1.75 GB 1024 x 768 • • • • • • GSMX iGSMV GSMHS iGSMHS 7847i 7847i-E

Access Security
The following four levels of protection guard the control against compromise while it is being accessed from a remote location: 1. Security code handshake: The subscriber’s account number as well as an 8-digit ID number (known only to the office) must be matched between the control and computer. 2. Hang-up and callback: The control panel “hangs up” and calls the computer back at the preprogrammed number only if the security codes match. 3. Data encryption: All data that is exchanged between the computer and control is encrypted to reduce the possibility of anyone “tapping” the line and corrupting data. 4. Operator access levels: Operators may be assigned various levels of access to the downloader, each having its own log-on code. The access levels allow the operators read/write capabilities of the customers’ account information. For a detailed explanation of the access levels, see the downloading software User Manual. NOTES: • Each time the control panel is accessed successfully, a Callback Requested report is sent to the central station, if Opening reports are programmed. • When the system is downloading, the keypad displays “MODEM COMM.” • After each download or save an automatic time stamp is done, to indicate the last download (or save) and the operator ID number. • A complete hard copy of each individual account can be obtained by connecting a printer to the computer. Refer to your computer Owner’s Manual or contact your dealer for printer recommendations.

Getting On-Line with a Control Panel
At the protected premises, the control panel must be connected to the existing telephone line (refer to SECTION 3: Installing the Control). No programming of the panel is required before downloading to an initial installation. When establishing a connection between the computer and the control panel, the following occurs: Stage 1 What Happens The computer calls up the control panel. (The phone number for each customer must be entered into the customer’s account file on the computer.) The control panel answers the phone call at the pre-programmed ring count and executes a handshake with the computer. The computer sends a request for callback to the control, unless callback is not required. The panel acknowledges the request and hangs up. During the next few seconds, the control processes the request, making sure certain encrypted information received from the computer matches its own memory. Upon a successful match, the control panel seizes the phone line and calls the computer back, unless callback is not required. (The phone number to which the computer’s modem is connected must be programmed into the control field .35.) The computer answers, usually by the second ring, and executes a handshake with the panel. The panel then sends other default information to the computer. If this information matches the computer’s information, a successful link is established. The system is now “on-line” with the computer. • Alarms and Trouble responses and reports are disabled during actual uploading or downloading sessions. If you are on-line, but not actively uploading or downloading, all alarms report immediately. All other reports are delayed until you complete the session. The keypads remain active when on-line with a control, but are inactive during actual uploading or downloading sessions. 2 To download a control without programming any information, perform the following steps: Step 1 Action Enter the Installer Code + [#] + [5]. The panel temporarily enables a ring count of 5 and sets the Download Callback option to “1” (callback not required). From the computer, call the panel using the downloader software set to “First Communication” Mode. The downloader establishes a session with no callback. The panel information can then be downloaded.

On-Line Control Functions
The following functions can be performed while on-line with a control panel (see field *37): • Arm the system in the AWAY Mode; disarm the system • Bypass a zone • Force the system to accept a new program download • Shut down communication (dialer) functions (for nonpayment of monitoring fees in an owned system) • Shut down all security system functions (for nonpayment for a leased system) • Inhibit local keypad programming (prevents takeover of your accounts) • Leave a message for customer NOTE: Messages sent to the control panel from the downloader will be viewable at ALL partitions. • Command the system to upload a copy of its resident program to the office • Read: arming status, AC power status, list of faulted zones, list of bypassed zones, 1000 event log, list of zones currently in alarm, list of zones currently in trouble, and ECP equipment list • Set the real-time clock

Telco Handoff
Telco handoff is another method of getting on-line with the downloader. The installer or customer enters the User Code + [#] + [1], while on the phone line with the computer’s modem phone line. The customer will get cut-off and the panel and download computer will establish a connection.

General Information
The VISTA-128BPT allows a total of 150 security access codes to be allocated. The VISTA-250BPT allows a total of 250 security access codes to be allocated. Each security access code is identified by a user ID number. Regardless of the number of partitions each code has access to, it occupies only one user slot in the system. If a code is not used in all partitions, that user ID number cannot be used again. The Quick Arm feature can also be programmed (partition-specific program field *29). The Quick Arm feature allows the user to arm the system by pressing the [#] key instead of the security code. The security code must always be entered to disarm the system. A user code other than the installer code must be programmed in order for the Quick Arm feature to function. The system is shipped with the following defaults for the user codes:
User User 1 (Installer) User 2 4-Digit Code 4140 1234 Alpha Descriptor INSTLR MASTER

User Codes & Levels of Authority
Each user of the system can be assigned a level of authority, which authorizes the user for certain system functions. A user can have different levels of authority within different partitions Use the “View Capabilities” keypad function (User Code + [.] + [.]) to view the partitions and authority levels for which a particular user is authorized. These levels are described below.

Level 0: Installer (User 1) Code
• • Programmed in field *00 (default = 4-1-4-0). Installer Open/Close reporting selected in field *39. Can perform all system functions (arm, disarm, bypass, etc.), but cannot disarm if armed by another code (or by Quick Arm). Can add, delete, or change all other codes, and can select Open/Close reports for any user. Is the only code that can be used to enter program mode. The Installer Code can be prevented from reentering the Program Mode by exiting using ∗98. Must program at least one Master Code during initial installation. Master Codes are codes intended for use by the primary user(s) of the system. Can perform all normal system functions. Can be used to assign up to 148 lower-level codes, which can be used by other users of the system. Cannot assign anybody a level of 0 or 1. May change own code. Can add, delete, or change Manager or Operator Codes. Each user’s code can be individually eliminated or changed at any time. Open/Close reporting is automatically the same as that of the Master who is adding the new user.

Level 2: Manager Codes
• • • • Can perform all system functions (arm, disarm, bypass, etc.) programmed by Master. May add, delete, or change other users of the system below this level (Manager cannot assign anybody a level of 0, 1, or 2). May change own code. Open/Close reporting is automatically the same as that of the Manager who is adding the new user. Can operate a partition, but cannot add or modify any user code (see table below). Level 3 4 5 • Title Operator A Operator B Operator C Functions Permitted Arm, Disarm, Bypass Arm, Disarm Arm, Disarm only if armed with same code

• •

Levels 3-5: Operator Codes

Level 1: Master Codes
• • • • • •

Operator C (sometimes known as the Babysitter Code) cannot disarm the system unless the system was armed with that code. This code is usually assigned to persons who may need to arm and disarm the system at specific times only (e.g., a babysitter needs to control the system only when babysitting).

9-1

V128BPT/V250BPT Installation and Setup Guide Level 6: Duress Codes
• Sends a silent alarm to a central monitoring station if the user is being forced to disarm (or arm) the system under threat (system must be connected to a central station). Assigned on a partition-by-partition basis, and can be any code or codes desired. Duress Reporting NOTE: A non-zero report code for zone 992 (duress) must be programmed, and partition-specific field *85 duress location enabled, to enable Duress reporting. • The Duress report-triggering logic activates on the th th 5 key depression (such as OFF), not the 4 key depression (last digit of code). Duress reports are th not triggered if the 5 key is a [*], such as when you perform a GOTO or view the capabilities of a user.

General Rules on Authority Levels and Changes
The following rules apply to users when making modifications within the system based on the user code authority levels: • Master Codes and all lower-level codes can be used interchangeably when performing system functions within a partition (a system armed with a user’s temporary code can be disarmed with the Master Code or another user’s temporary code), except the Operator Level C Code described above. • A user may not delete or change the user code of the SAME or HIGHER authority than that which he is assigned. • A user (levels 0, 1 and 2 only) may only ADD users to a LOWER authority level. • A user may assign other users access to only those partitions to which he himself has access. • A user code can be DELETED or CHANGED only from within the partition it was created in. • User numbers must be entered in 3 digits. Single-digit user numbers must, therefore, always be preceded by a “00” (e.g., 003, 004, 005, etc.). Make sure the end user understands this requirement. Temporary codes are entered as 4-digit numbers.

Open/Close Reporting Note: When a user is added, the system prompts for Open/Close reporting capability only if the installer is adding the new user. When a Master or Manager adds a new user, the new user’s Open/Close reporting is the same as that of the Master or Manager who is adding the user. If Open/Close reports are required to be selectable by the Master or Manager, the Installer should assign two Master or Manager user codes: one with Open/Close reporting enabled, and one without. Note that Open/Close reporting of Quick Arm is enabled if User 002 is enabled for Open/Close reporting, and that Quick Arm reports as User 000. In order for Quick Arm reports to be sent for all partitions, User 002 must have authority and Open/Close must be enabled for all partitions. If a code with access to all partitions is not desired, it is suggested that user 002 be assigned authority level 5 in all partitions, and that the code be kept secret. Authority level 5 cannot disarm the system unless armed by that user. ADEMCO Contact ID format is capable of reporting Users 001-150 uniquely. If any other report format is used, only user numbers 001 – 015 can uniquely report to the central station. Users 016 – 150 will report as User 015.

Multiple Partition Access
Each user is programmed for a primary (home) partition. A user can also be given access to operate one or more additional partitions. Within each partition, each user may be programmed to have different levels of authority. For example, User 003, the VP of Engineering, could be assigned to work within the Engineering Department (Partition 1) of ABC Manufacturing. Because he needs the full capabilities in his area, he is assigned as a MASTER with Level 1 authority. He must also be able to gain access to the manufacturing area (Partition 2) on an emergency basis. You can set this up easily by requesting that he also be assigned to Partition 2, with a level of authority set lower, such as Level 4 (OPERATOR Level B).

The control automatically assigns him the same user number within Partition 2. EXAMPLE OF MULTIPLE PARTITION ACCESS
Part 1 User 3 Level 1 Master Part 2 User 3 Level 4 Oper B Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6 Part 7 Part 8

In the above example, User 3 has MASTER authority in Partition 1 and OPERATOR B authority in Partition 2. His user number is the same for both partitions. Note that if a user number is already being used in a partition, the system will automatically assign a new user an unused number. Also notice that no access is allowed for this user into Partitions 3 – 8. Attempts to access these partitions would be denied automatically.

Section 9 – User Access Codes

Adding a Master, Manager, or Operator Code
During user code entry, normal key depressions at other keypads in a partition are ignored. However, panic key depression causes an alarm and terminates user entry. Enter Installer Code†+ [8] + new user no. (002-250) + new user’s code †Or Master or Manager Code, but the code must be a higher level of authority than the code being changed (e.g., a Manager Code can add an Operator-level Code, but cannot add a Master or another Manager Code). Keypad prompts for the authority level for this user. NOTE: All references to the number of user codes pertain to the VISTA-250BPT. The VISTA-128BPT allows only 150 user codes.

PROMPT
User Number = 003 Enter Auth. Level

EXPLANATION
Enter the level number as follows: 1 = Master 2 = Manager 3 = Operator Level A 4 = Operator Level B 5 = Operator Level C 6 = Duress Keypad then prompts for Open/Close reporting option for this user. Press 0 (NO) or 1 (YES), depending on whether or not arming/disarming by this user will trigger Opening and Closing reports. This prompt appears only if the Installer Code is used to add a user. Enter 1 (YES) to allow this user to perform group bypasses. Enter 0 (NO) this user will not be able to perform group bypasses. NOTE: In addition to enabling the user for group bypassing, the user must also have access to the partition(s) containing the zones being bypassed and have global arming capability. If access schedules have been programmed, this prompt appears. Enter the user’s access group number (18) if this user should have limited access to the system. Enter 0 if no access group should be assigned. If a 5800 Series button transmitter has been enabled for arming/disarming functions, and is not assigned to a user, this prompt appears. Press 0 (NO) or 1 (YES). If you answered “yes” to the RF button question, the zone number for the button is requested. Enter any one of the zone numbers assigned to the button transmitter as AWAY, STAY, or DISARM. The system then assigns all buttons of the transmitter to this user number. Press 0 (NO) if the user is to have access to this partition only. Press 1 (YES) if the user is to have access to more than one partition. If NO, the program exits this mode. If YES, the keypad prompts for the Global Arm option for this user. Press 0 (NO) or 1 (YES), depending on whether this user will be allowed to arm more than one partition via Global Arm prompts. The keypad now prompts for the user’s access to the next partition. Press 0 (NO) or 1 (YES), depending on whether this user will have access to the displayed partition number. If NO, the keypad displays this prompt for the next partition number in sequence. If YES, the keypad prompts for the following: • User’s authority level in the displayed partition (see Authority Level prompt above). • Open/Close option for this user in the displayed partition (see Open/Close prompt above). • Global Arm option for this user in the displayed partition. When all partitions have been displayed, the keypad will scroll through all partitions to which access has been assigned, and will display the user number, authority level, open/close and global arm options that were programmed for each partition to which the user was granted access. Note that the “G” following the authority level indicates that the global arm feature is enabled for this user in the displayed partition, and that the period at the end of the second line indicates Open/Close reporting is enabled for this user in the displayed partition. The [/] indicates the partition from which the user may be changed or deleted.

Changing a Master, Manager, or Operator Code
Enter Installer Code*+ [8] + new user no. (002-250) + new user’s code *Or Master or Manager Code, but the code must be a higher level of authority than the code being changed (e.g. a Manager Code can add an Operator-level Code, but cannot add a Master or another Manager Code). NOTE: The VISTA-128BPT allows only 150 user codes.

PROMPT
User Number = 003 ADD NEW USER?

EXPLANATION
The system detects that the user number is already assigned, and prompts if this is a new user. Press 0 (NO). The system then confirms that the change is allowed based on authorization level.

Adding an RF Key to an Existing User
To add an RF key to an existing user, or to change a user’s global arm option, first delete that user’s code, then re-add the user code as described in the “Adding a Master, Manager, or Operator Code” paragraph.

Deleting a Master, Manager, or Operator Code
Enter your code*+ [8] + new user no. (002-150) + your code again *Or Master or Manager Code, but the code must be a higher level of authority than the code being changed (e.g. a Manager Code can add an Operator-level Code, but cannot add a Master or another Manager Code). NOTE: The VISTA-128BPT allows only 150 user codes.

PROMPT
OK TO DELETE 003? 0=NO 1=YES

EXPLANATION
The system prompts to confirm that you want to delete this user. Press 0 (NO) or 1 (YES). If you answered “yes,” that user’s code is removed from all partitions to which it was assigned, and all authorization levels and other information about that user are deleted. Note that a user can be deleted only by a user with a higher authority level. A user cannot delete himself.

A user code can be deleted only from the partition through which it was entered. If an attempt is made to delete from another partition, the message “User [XXX] Not Deleted” is displayed.

Testing the System
• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Battery Test
When AC power is present, the VISTA-128BPT/VISTA250BPT runs a brief battery test every 60 seconds to determine if there is a battery connected, and runs an extended battery test every 4 hours to check on the battery’s condition. If the VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT finds that the battery voltage is low (less than approximately 11.5V), it initiates a keypad “SYSTEM LOBAT” display and a rapid keypad beeping sound. It also sends a Low Battery report to the central station (if programmed). The keypad is cleared by entering any security code + OFF, and a Restore report is sent to the central station if the situation has been corrected.

Dialer Test
The VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT may be programmed to automatically transmit test reports to a central station at intervals ranging from once per hour to once per 9999 hours (field .27). UL requires the test report to be transmitted at least once every 24 hours. The system can be programmed to send the first report at any time of the day, or on any day of the week (field .83).

Burglary Walk-Test (Code + [5] TEST)
This test causes the system to sound keypad beeps in response to faults on zones for the purpose of allowing proper zone operation to be checked without triggering alarms. This test can be activated by any-level user by entering the corresponding security code and pressing TEST while the burglary portion of the system is disarmed. UL requires that this test be conducted on a weekly basis. When this test is first entered, the system activates the alarm output for 3 seconds. The system sends a Start of Walk-Test message to the central station. The keypad displays “Burg Walk Test in Progress” and sounds a single beep every 15 seconds while the test remains active. Open and close each protected door and window in turn. Each action should produce three beeps from the keypad. Walk in front of any motion detectors. Listen for three beeps when the detector senses movement. The keypad displays the zone number and alpha descriptor while a door or window remains open or while a detector remains activated. To end this test, enter any security code and press OFF. An End of Walk-Test message is sent to the central station. The system automatically exits the Test mode if there is no activity (no doors or windows are opened and closed, no motion detectors are activated, etc.) for 30 minutes on the VISTA-128BPT, 60 minutes on the VISTA250BPT. The system beeps the keypad(s) twice every 15 seconds during the last 5 minutes as a warning that it is about to exit the Test mode and return to normal operation.

Armed Burglary System Test
Alarm messages are sent to the central station during the armed system tests. Notify the central station that a test will be in progress. A display of “COMM. FAILURE” indicates a failure to communicate (no kissoff by the receiver at the central station after the maximum number of transmission attempts is tried). If this occurs, verify that the phone line is connected, the correct report format is programmed, etc.

10-1

V128BPT/V250BPT Installation and Setup Guide
To perform an armed burglary test, proceed as follows: Step 1 2 3 4 Action Notify the central station that a test of the system is being performed. Arm the system. Fault one or more zones. Silence alarm sounder(s) each time by entering the code and pressing OFF. NOTE: The system must be rearmed after each code + off sequence. Check that entry/exit delay zones provide the assigned delay times. Step 6 Action Check the keypad-initiated alarms, if programmed, by pressing the panic key pairs (. and #, 1 and ., and/or 3 and #). The word ALARM and a descriptor “999” are displayed for . and #. If [1] and [.] are pressed, “995” is displayed; if [3] and [#] are pressed, “996” is displayed. If the system has been programmed for audible emergency, the keypad emits a loud, steady alarm sound. Silence the alarm by entering the security code and pressing OFF. If the system has been programmed for silent panic, there are no audible alarms or displays. A report is sent to the central station, however. Notify the central station that all tests are finished, and verify results with them.

Testing Wireless Transmitters
Transmitter ID Sniffer Mode
Use the Transmitter Sniffer Mode to test that transmitters have all been properly programmed.

Go/No Go Test Mode
Checking the transmitters in this mode assists in determining good mounting locations, and verifies that the RF transmission has sufficient signal amplitude margin for the installed system. • All partitions containing wireless transmitters must be placed in the test mode for sensitivity reduction of the RF receiver (50% sensitivity). Otherwise, the RF receiver remains at full strength. Make sure that all partitions are disarmed when performing this test, as the wireless receiver gain is reduced in half.

If a transmitter does not have its serial number “enrolled,” it will not turn off its zone number. To enter the Transmitter ID Sniffer Mode, proceed as follows: Step 1 Action Enter Installer Code + [#] + [3]. The keypad displays all zone numbers of wireless units programmed into the system. Fault each wireless zone, causing each device to transmit. As the system receives a signal from each of the transmitters, the zone number of that transmitter disappears from the display. Enter Installer Code + OFF to exit the Sniffer Mode.

To enter the Go/No Go Test Mode, proceed as follows: Step 1 2 Action Enter Installer Code + [5]. Fault each wireless transmitter, causing each device to transmit. NOTE: If a single receiver is used, the keypad beeps three times to indicate signal reception. If two receivers are used, the keypad beeps once if the first receiver received the signal, twice if the second receiver received the signal, and three times if both receivers heard the signal. If the keypad does not beep, reorient or move the transmitter to another location. Usually a few inches in either direction is all that is required. Enter Installer Code + OFF to exit the Go/No Go Test Mode.

All smoke detectors must be tested monthly by pressing the TEST button located on the detector. If the TEST button does not cause the detector to activate it must be replaced immediately.

Trouble Conditions
Check or Trouble Messages
Display CHECK or TRBL (as per field 1.07) Description This indicates that a problem exists on the zone number displayed. Zone trouble may be caused by one of the following conditions: • A hardwired fire zone is open (broken wire). • A Day/Night zone (zone type 5) is faulted. • A polling loop zone is not seen by the control panel. • A polling loop zone has been tampered (cover removed on a 4190). • A wireless zone has not checked in during the time programmed in field 1.31. • A 5800 Series transmitter has been tampered (cover removed). This indicates a trouble on a peripheral device (connected to the panel’s keypad terminals) of the corresponding device address (00-30). This indicates that a system trouble exists (RF receiver, bell output, etc.).

Power Failure
Display AC LOSS POWER LED is off Description This indicates that the system is operating on battery power only. Check to see that the circuit breaker for the branch circuit that your system’s transformer is wired to has not been accidentally turned off. Instruct the user to call a service representative immediately if AC power cannot be restored.

Other System Messages
Display COMM FAILURE LO BAT Description This indicates that a failure occurred in the telephone communication portion of your system. This indicates that a low-battery condition exists in the wireless transmitter displayed. Pressing any key silences the audible warning sound. This indicates that a low-battery condition exists with the system’s backup battery. This indicates that the system has more wireless zones programmed than the wireless receiver can support. If this is not corrected, none of the zones in the system will be protected. If additional wireless zones are desired, use an appropriate receiver. This indicates that the control is on-line with a remote computer.

California State Fire Marshal (CSFM) and UL Residential Fire Battery Backup Requirements
The California State Fire Marshal and UL have regulations that require all residential fire alarm control panels to have backup battery with sufficient capacity to operate the panel and its attached peripheral devices for 24 hours in the intended standby condition, followed by at least 4 minutes in the intended fire alarm signaling condition. The VISTA-128BPT/VISTA-250BPT can meet this requirement without using a supplemental power supply, provided that the panel’s outputs (including the current drawn from the auxiliary power output terminals) are limited as shown below: • • • Output current is limited to 750mA maximum total auxiliary power, polling loop, and bell output current. Maximum auxiliary current is 300mA (including polling loop current). A 14AH battery is used. (Yuasa model NP7-12 recommended; use two connected in parallel.) A dual-battery harness is provided with ADEMCO No. 4100EOLR Resistor Kit (kit also contains EOL resistors having spade lug/heat shrink tubing construction approved by UL and CSFM for fire zone usage). Both batteries fit inside the panel’s cabinet.

ULC Installation Requirements
• • • The zone inputs of the control unit are considered Low Risk applications only. The control unit must not be mounted on the exterior of a vault, safe or stockroom. Subscriber control units capable of maintaining opening (disarming) and closing (arming) schedules must facilitate a hardcopy printout of the opening (disarming) and closing (arming) schedule programming and of all the programmed holidays. Telephone service must be of the type that provides for timed release disconnect.

IN THE EVENT OF TELEPHONE OPERATIONAL PROBLEMS
In the event of telephone operational problems, disconnect the control panel by removing the plug from the RJ31X (CA38A in Canada) wall jack. We recommend that you demonstrate disconnecting the phones on installation of the system. Do not disconnect the phone connection inside the control panel. Doing so will result in the loss of your phone lines. If the regular phone works correctly after the control panel has been disconnected from the phone lines, the control panel has a problem and should be returned for repair. If upon disconnection of the control panel, there is still a problem on the line, notify the telephone company that it has a problem and request prompt repair service. The user may not under any circumstances (in or out of warranty) attempt any service or repairs to the system. It must be returned to the factory or an authorized service agency for all repairs.

On the front cover of this equipment is a label that contains, among other information, the FCC registration number and ringer equivalence number (REN) for this equipment. If requested, this information must be provided to the telephone company. This equipment uses the following jacks: An RJ31X is used to connect this equipment to the telephone network. The REN is used to determine the quantity of devices that may be connected to the telephone line. Excessive RENs on the telephone line may result in the devices not ringing in response to an incoming call. In most, but not all areas, the sum of the RENs should not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number of devices that may be connected to the line, as determined by the total RENs, contact the telephone company to determine the maximum REN for the calling area. If this equipment causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone company will notify you in advance that temporary discontinuance of service may be required. If advance notice is not practical, the telephone company will notify the customer as soon as possible. Also, you will be advised of your right to file a complaint with the FCC if you believe necessary.

NOTE: If there is a phone line (or radio) failure and the panel has exhausted its maximum attempts to send reporting events to the central station, the panel will hold the messages in a buffer and resend upon restoral of the communication path. In addition, old messages that are sent will indicate that they are not current messages so that the central station does not dispatch on them. In order to accomplish this, an event qualifier of “6” will be sent in place of the “1” or “3” character in the message. The “6” indicates that the message is old. Events will be sent in chronological order and will be time-stamped in the system’s event log.

While this System is an advanced wireless security system, it does not offer guaranteed protection against burglary, fire or other emergency. Any alarm system, whether commercial or residential, is subject to compromise or failure to warn for a variety of reasons. For example: • Intruders may gain access through unprotected openings or have the technical sophistication to bypass an alarm sensor or disconnect an alarm warning device. • Intrusion detectors (e.g., passive infrared detectors), smoke detectors, and many other sensing devices will not work without power. Battery-operated devices will not work without batteries, with dead batteries, or if the batteries are not put in properly. Devices powered solely by AC will not work if their AC power supply is cut off for any reason, however briefly. • Signals sent by wireless transmitters may be blocked or reflected by metal before they reach the alarm receiver. Even if the signal path has been recently checked during a weekly test, blockage can occur if a metal object is moved into the path. • A user may not be able to reach a panic or emergency button quickly enough. • While smoke detectors have played a key role in reducing residential fire deaths in the United States, they may not activate or provide early warning for a variety of reasons in as many as 35% of all fires, according to data published by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Some of the reasons smoke detectors used in conjunction with this System may not work are as follows. Smoke detectors may have been improperly installed and positioned. Smoke detectors may not sense fires that start where smoke cannot reach the detectors, such as in chimneys, in walls, or roofs, or on the other side of closed doors. Smoke detectors also may not sense a fire on another level of a residence or building. A second floor detector, for example, may not sense a first floor or basement fire. Finally, smoke detectors have sensing limitations. No smoke detector can sense every kind of fire every time. In general, detectors may not always warn about fires caused by carelessness and safety hazards like smoking in bed, violent explosions, escaping gas, improper storage of flammable materials, overloaded electrical circuits, children playing with matches, or arson. Depending on the nature of the fire and/or location of the smoke detectors, the detector, even if it operates as anticipated, may not provide sufficient warning to allow all occupants to escape in time to prevent injury or death. • Passive Infrared Motion Detectors can only detect intrusion within the designed ranges as diagrammed in their installation manual. Passive Infrared Detectors do not provide volumetric area protection. They do create multiple beams of protection, and intrusion can only be detected in unobstructed areas covered by those beams. They cannot detect motion or intrusion that takes place behind walls, ceilings, floors, closed doors, glass partitions, glass doors, or windows. Mechanical tampering, masking, painting or spraying of any material on the mirrors, windows or any part of the optical system can reduce their detection ability. Passive Infrared Detectors sense changes in temperature; however, as the ambient temperature of the protected area approaches the temperature range of 90° to 105°F (32° to 40°C), the detection performance can decrease. • Alarm warning devices such as sirens, bells or horns may not alert people or wake up sleepers if they are located on the other side of closed or partly open doors. If warning devices are located on a different level of the residence from the bedrooms, then they are less likely to waken or alert people inside the bedrooms. Even persons who are awake may not hear the warning if the alarm is muffled by noise from a stereo, radio, air conditioner or other appliance, or by passing traffic. Finally, alarm-warning devices, however loud, may not warn hearing-impaired people. • Telephone lines needed to transmit alarm signals from a premises to a central monitoring station may be out of service or temporarily out of service. Telephone lines are also subject to compromise by sophisticated intruders. • Even if the system responds to the emergency as intended, however, occupants may have insufficient time to protect themselves from the emergency situation. In the case of a monitored alarm system, authorities may not respond appropriately. • This equipment, like other electrical devices, is subject to component failure. Even though this equipment is designed to last as long as 20 years, the electronic components could fail at any time. The most common cause of an alarm system not functioning when an intrusion or fire occurs is inadequate maintenance. This alarm system should be tested weekly to make sure all sensors and transmitters are working properly. The security keypad (and remote keypad) should be tested as well. Wireless transmitters (used in some systems) are designed to provide long battery life under normal operating conditions. Longevity of batteries may be as much as 4 to 7 years, depending on the environment, usage, and the specific wireless device being used. External factors such as humidity, high or low temperatures, as well as large swings in temperature, may all reduce the actual battery life in a given installation. This wireless system, however, can identify a true low battery situation, thus allowing time to arrange a change of battery to maintain protection for that given point within the system. Installing an alarm system may make the owner eligible for a lower insurance rate, but an alarm system is not a substitute for insurance. Homeowners, property owners and renters should continue to act prudently in protecting themselves and continue to insure their lives and property. We continue to develop new and improved protection devices. Users of alarm systems owe it to themselves and their loved ones to learn about these developments.
