Can I Use a Cellular Module w/ VISTA Security Systems?

Yes, Honeywell Vista series control panels are compatible with Honeywell cellular communicators. There are several different compatible cellular communicators.

  1. Honeywell GSMX4G
  2. Honeywell GSMV4G
  3. Honeywell iGSMV4G
  4. Honeywell Vista-GSM4G
  5. Honeywell iGSMHS4G
  6. Honeywell CDMA-X
  7. Telguard TG-1 Express and Telguard TG1-B
  8. Alarm.com ADC-SEM100-CDMA
  9. Alarm.com ADC-SEM100-LTE

The Honeywell GSMX4G, (AT&T carrier) runs off the Vista control panels power so depending on how many devices are connected to the Vista control panel, a power supply may be required like the Honeywell AD12612.

The Honeywell GSMV4G (AT&T carrier) comes with it’s own battery and transformer freeing up the panel's auxiliary power for other devices.

The Honeywell iGSMV4G is a dual path communicator that provides GSM cellular (AT&T carrier) and also connects to the users router. The first path of communication will be Internet and if the communicator loses internet for any reason, the iGSMV4G will switch to cellular, and continue to send signals on behalf of the alarm system.

The Honeywell Vista-GSM4G is the compatible cellular communicator for the Vista-21iP control panel only. The Vista-21iP panel has a built in internet communicator so installing the Vista-GSM4G provides dual path communication.

The Honeywell iGSMH4SG is a UL listed, high security dual path communicator. The iGSMVHS4G has a 200 second supervision rate on the communication path and is usually used in places like jewelry stores and banks.

The Honeywell CDMA-X is the compatible Verizon network’s cellular communicator. Like the GSMX4G, the CDMA-X draws its available current from the alarm panel's auxiliary power bus, so careful power calculations are in order and a power supply may be required.

Alarm.com, ADC-SEM100-CDMA is compatible with the Honeywell Vista-10P, 15P, 20P, 21iP and the ADC-SEM100-LTE is only compatible with the Vista-15P, 20P and 21iP control panels. Both ADC communicators use Verizon's network, and both Alarm.com communicators will only transmit signals from partition one.

The Telguard TG-1 Express and the Telguard TG1-B are universal cellular communicators that use the AT&T network. The TG-1 Express uses power from the alarm panel where the TG1-B comes with it’s own battery and power supply.

A Honeywell Vista control panel when paired with a Honeywell cellular communicator will send signals to Honeywell’s AlarmNet server which forwards the signals to a central station and Total Connect 2.0.

The TG1/TG1-B, sends signals to Telguard and signals are then forwarded from there to a central monitoring station and Telguard Home Control Flex.

Alarm.com communicators will send signals to Alarm.com, which will then forward them to a central station, if enabled.
