Can I get Wireless Sensors to Work on a VISTA 10SE?
The Vista-10SE requires a receiver to interface with wireless 5800 devices. The receiver connects to the panels keypad bus, and receives signals from 5800 devices. These devices transmit to the receiver via RF, and it then sends those signals to the alarm panel via the wired bus connection.
The Honeywell Vista 10SE is a wired alarm panel. The system has 6 on board hardwired zones and supports up to 16 wireless zones. Each 5800 wireless sensor requires at least 1 zone in programming to function. Some transmitters offer multiple "loops" which each require a separate zone. The most popular receivers are the 6150RF and the 6160RF. These devices conveniently combine the 6150 or 6160 keypad with a receiver and transmitter module. The 6160RF supports as many wireless devices as the system can handle, the 6160RF supports up to 16 wireless devices. All other available receivers are standalone devices. The remaining compatible receivers are the 5881ENL, 5881ENM, 5881ENH, 5881ENHC and the 5883H transceiver.
The recommended sensors to use with the Vista 10SE are Honeywell 5800 devices. 5800 sensors have about a 200 foot transmitting range, are not encrypted, and except for the devices that use a House ID to operate, do not have bi-directional communication. The House ID feature allows a compatible device to use bi-directional communication. An example of this is the 5828 wireless keypad or 5828V Voice wireless keypad. The House ID feature allows a wireless device to receive system status information, such as armed status, or zone faults, from the alarm system. To utilize the House ID feature, a compatible transceiver must be installed. The 6150RF, 6160RF and 5883H are all 2-way transceiver devices.
