How do I Add 24-Hour Trouble Zones to a Vista-P panel?

The Vista-15P, Vista-20P and Vista-21iP offer the option of a Configurable Zone type (2 on the Vista-15P, or 4 on the Vista-20P) which can be configured to provide a non-standard response in the event of such incidents as Loss of Heat, High Temp, Low Temp, Flood, or Refrigeration trouble. Configurable Zone Types allow you to choose the Contact ID reporting code for alarm and/or trouble, which is helpful when reporting to a Central Station.

The following settings will create a zone which activates a keypad trouble upon open or short (hardwired zones) or off-normal condition (wireless) whether the system is armed or disarmed, and will report the Contact ID Code specified if enabled (in this case, it would require a trouble report code in programming location *60). These examples assume this is the first Configurable Zone Type being programmed on the system, and will use Zone Type 90.

For a Hardwired Zone, enter programming and in *182, enter the following 10 digits:

8, 2, 8, 2, 8, 2, 0, 0, 0, 2

For a Wireless Zone, enter programming and in *182, enter the following 10 digits:

0, 2, 0, 2, 0, 2, 0, 0, 0, 2

In programming location *183, you must enter the Contact ID report code you wish to use with zones programmed as this type (Zone Type 90).

Loss of Heat - Program *183 as 1, 5, 3, 1, 5, 3

High Temp - Program *183 as 1, 5, 8, 1, 5, 8

Low Temp - Program * 183 as 1, 5, 9, 1, 5, 9

Flood/Water - Program *183 as 1, 5, 4, 1, 5, 4

Refrigeration - Program *183 as 1, 5, 2, 1, 5, 2

In zone programming, go to the appropriate zone number and program it as Zone Type 90.

A 24-hour device type doesn't really "fault" as a fault is a sensor activation of a non-24 hour device type in the disarmed state. You could simply set it up for 24 Hr Silent Response Type and it will be active in all modes but won't sound the alarm when tripped. Is that what you are looking for?
I'm trying to use this approach on a low temperature sensor. How can I avoid a fault on this sensor from sounding my alarm's external siren? TIA!
