How do I create a Pool Trouble zone on 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, Vista-21iP) which can be configured to provide a non-standard response in the event of such incidents, when a standard zone type is not sufficient. Configurable Zone Types allow you to choose the Contact ID reporting code for alarm and/or trouble.
The following settings will create a zone type which will activate a keypad trouble sound upon an open or short when armed Stay or Disarmed. It will cause a Steady Bell and Keypad sound which follows bell timeout upon open or short when the system is armed Away, and will report the Contact ID Code specified, if enabled. To keep this zone from reporting to Central Station, leave the alarm report code in zone programming set to 00. Pool zones, particularly in Florida, usually require a means to physically shunt the zone for brief periods, and for this reason, no wireless option is given. This zone type can not be bypassed through the keypad.
Enter programming and in *182, enter the following 10 digits (exactly as shown):
8, 2, 8, 2, 4, 1, 0, 0, 6, 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).
Program *183 as 1, 3, 1, 3, 8, 0
In zone programming, go to the appropriate zone number and program it as Zone Type 90.
