yes the 21ip does have the feature to enable chime by zone
Hi, i have a Vista 21IP, and a 6160 keypad. And i was wondering if you can enable a single perimeter zone to chime instead of all perimeter doors?
No, unfortunately you can't change the chime sound on that panel.
Bingo! Second question, I have a 6160, is there any option for a single chime instead of three? Thanks again! Your youtube videos made the installation a breeze, too!
Is your keypad displaying the word Chime now? You don't need to use "Chime by Zone" as fire zones don't chime so you can disable that feature and all zones should chime as long as you have chime enabled on the keypad. Keep in mind, going in and out of programming will toggle chime off if it's on.
Hello, I have a Vista 21ip and I am failing to get my zones to chime via the keypad. I have enabled chime and have added all zones except fire to zone list 3 in *81. Any suggestions? Thanks! Mike
