VISTAVISTAVISTA-GSM / VISTA-GSMCN
The VISTA-GSM (USA) and VISTA-GSMCN (Canada) are optional communication modules intended for use with the VISTA-21iP control, and provide cellular radio communication with the AlarmNet network for delivery of alarm and other messages to the monitoring central station. These instructions describe the installation of both models. IMPORTANT! (1) The VISTA-GSM (USA) device requires activation of its SIM card. See the SIM Activation Note on page 4 for the procedure. (2) Use of this module requires an AlarmNet-I account. If an account for the control does not yet exist, please obtain the account information from the central station prior to programming this module.

IMPORTANT! Disconnect power from the control, including the battery, BEFORE installing the VISTA-GSM module. CAUTION: ESD SENSITIVE DEVICE. To discharge any static buildup, briefly touch a chassis ground point before installing this module. Avoid performing this installation while standing on a carpeted floor.
Installing the VISTA-GSM module
1. Mount the VISTA-GSM Board.
a. Snap the antenna adapter cable’s plug into the VISTA-GSM board connector. b. Push the three standoffs into the appropriate holes on the VISTA-21iP control board until they snap into place. c. Carefully align the VISTA-GSM board over the standoffs and the mating connector, then, one at a time, gently push down on the board near each standoff until it snaps into place and the connector is fully seated.

3. Install the Antenna.
The antenna mounts directly onto the antenna adapter cable at the antenna adapter plate. Carefully align the antenna’s connector over the SMA connector protruding from the adapter plate, then screw it down (clockwise) until it is finger tight. Do not over tighten.

Signal Strength (RSSI)
Signal strength is a measure of how well the VISTA-GSM is receiving the cell tower., Signal strength can viewed at the RSSI LEDs on the control board† (should be minimum of three RSSI LEDs lit) or can be viewed as a dBm measurement on the touchpad display by using the diagnostic shift-E command (D key followed by the 5 key) while in ∗29 Menu mode-Diagnostic mode. An acceptable dBm level is -89dBm (see dBm note at right). † NOTE: The RSSI LEDs on the control board normally display signal strength after the SIM has been activated (see note on page 4). If the SIM is not activated, signal strength can be viewed at these LEDs by simultaneously pressing and holding the TEST and STATUS switches on the control board. The following are tips for maximizing signal strength: • The best RSSI can usually be found on an exterior wall at the highest point in the building. Avoid the basement. • Maintain at least 12 inches clearance between antenna and steel I-beams, HVAC ducts, metal studs, steel roofs, exterior walls with metalized insulation or aluminum siding and other large metal objects. If a consistent RSSI of three bars cannot be found, the control cabinet may have to be moved to an area of better reception.

dBm NOTE: dBm is displayed as a negative value on the touchpad display (diagnostic command shift-E); a smaller negative number is better. i.e., -60 dBm is a better RSSI than -100 dBm. Three RSSI LEDs lit = about -89dBm

GSM Status LEDs
There are three GSM Status LEDs used to indicate message and device status: • STATUS, green • MESSAGE, yellow • FAULT, red Each LED can have four different states - ON, OFF, FAST BLINK and SLOW BLINK.
COLOR/LED Green Status
GSM Status LED Meanings
DESCRIPTION On – module NOT registered Off – module is registered Fast Blink – Download session with Compass in progress Slow Blink – In unison with yellow LED – Registration in progress. On – Message transmission pending. Quick Periodic Blink – Normal. Fast Blink – Message waiting for network ACK. Slow Blink – In unison with green LED – Registration in progress. On – No contact with network. Off– Normal. Slow Blink – Loss of contact with panel (ECP fault). Fast Blink – No network contact AND loss of contact with the panel. Fast Blink – In unison with the RSSI Bar Graph LEDs – Hardware Error. Call the AlarmNet Technical Assistance Center. Indication on = signal strength (RSSI) display off = status display off = module operating in ECPmode web connection status GPRS service availability network carrier registration status
Signal Strength (RSSI) and Status LEDs
The Signal Strength (RSSI) Mode and Status LEDs normally display the module’s signal strength (after SIM activation). LED 1 (top red LED) will be lit to indicate that the display is in RSSI mode, and the other LEDs indicate signal strength (lowest to highest, from top to bottom) between the module and the receiving tower. (If the SIM is not activated, simultaneously press and hold the TEST and STATUS switches on the control board to display signal strength.) Signal strength should be within 3-5 RSSI LEDs lit. Status Indicator Switch Press and hold the Status LED Indicator Switch to change the LED functions to view the network carrier status. When the switch is held down, LED 1 (top red LED) will be off, and the other LEDs have the following meanings (see diagram for specific functions):

Programming the VISTA-GSM Module
The VISTA-GSM module’s parameters are programmed using the control’s *29 Menu mode. The programming procedure can be found in the control’s Programming Guide. To program the module, press ∗29 while in Programming mode, then follow the prompts.
Registering the Control with AlarmNet
Normally, registration with AlarmNet is done at the time the control is installed. If the VISTA-GSM module is being installed as an add-on, the control must be re-registered. Follow the registration procedure in the control’s Installation and Setup Guide. A summary of registration steps follows. Register the control by using one of these methods: By phone 1. Call 1-800-222-6525 You will need the following information: • MAC ID and MAC CRC number (found on the label on control’s PC board). • Subscriber information (provided by the central station), including a city code, CSID, and a subscriber ID. • Activation ID (AID) and AID CRC numbers (found on the label on the VISTA-GSM module or on its carton) 2. When instructed to do so, triple-click the Test switch to complete the registration. Alpha Keypad using *29 Menu mode 1. Enter *29 Menu mode, select Diagnostic mode, then use the [↑] shift-B command (D key followed by the B key). The registration message is sent (“Registering” displayed) and the control waits for the acknowledgment. 2. “Registration SUCCESS” displayed, indicating successful registration. Test Switch on control’s PCB (triple-click) 1. Click the switch three times. 2. Watch the GSM Status LEDs: The Message (yellow) LED and the Status (green) LED will blink slowly in unison while registration is in progress. 3. When registration is complete, the Status (green) LED goes out. AlarmNet Direct website See paragraph at right.
VISTA-GSM SIM ACTIVATION NOTE FOR USA: The VISTA-GSM device is not activated as shipped from the factory (indicated by unlit RSSI LEDs), and must be activated and registered before it can be used. SIM activation is automatic upon successful registration. To register/activate the unit, the control in which it is used must be connected to the Internet via its Ethernet connection or the SIM must be activated using the AID number if no internet connectivity is available. After the module is installed and the control is powered up, use any of the registration methods to register the control. Upon successful registration/SIM activation, the RSSI LEDs light based on signal strength. For Canadian installations, the VISTA-GSMCN includes an activated SIM, but the module must be registered with AlarmNet before it can be used. Refer to the Registering the Control with AlarmNet section for registration procedures.
Registering through AlarmNet Direct Website To register via AlarmNet Direct Website, please go to:
