How Do I Add A Sensor To A Vista 10P?

The Honeywell Vista 10P control panel has 6 on board hardwired zones and supports up to 16 wireless expansion zones plus 8 independent keyfob zones (keyfob zones would not take up any of the 16 wireless zones).

To add a normally open zone, connect open circuit sensors in parallel across the loop. To add EOLR normally open zones connect the EOLR across the loop wires at the last device. Enable normally open and EOLR zones using the hardwired type prompt in the zone programming mode.

To add a normally closed zone connect closed circuit sensors in series in the high positive (+) side of the loop. To add EOLR normally closed zones, connect the EOLR in series following the last sensor. It’s important to make sure the EOLR is at the end of the loop, if it’s not, the zone is not properly supervised and the system may not respond to an “open” on the zone.

Enable both normally closed and EOLR zones using the hardwire type prompt in the zone programming mode.

To add wireless sensors, a 5800 wireless receiver or a RF keypad is required. The Honeywell 5881ENM wireless receiver supports 16 wireless expansion zones, whereas the 5881ENH supports an unlimited number of wireless devices. A Honeywell 6150RF keypad has a built in 5881ENM and 5800TM. When selecting a wireless receiver or RF keypad, keep in mind how many wireless expansion zones the control panel supports as to not to select one that does not support enough or one that supports too many.

Once a wireless receiver or RF keypad has been installed, users can now install a 5800 wireless sensor. Before mounting the sensor, confirm the RF reception by performing a Go/No Go Test (directions are found in the testing section of the install manual). The 5800 series devices each have a unique 7 digit serial number which needs to be entered into the Vista 10P control panel after installation. During programming the sensor type should be labeled as RF for supervised RF. Please refer to the 5800 series device install manual for complete instructions.

Thank you! Will attempt that this weekend.
If you have a wireless receiver now, you don't need a 6150RF as you can't use more than one wireless receiver on a system. It sounds like you need a 6160 alphanumeric keypad so that you can access your panel's *56 zone programming menus.
I have a Vista-10P Panel with a wireless receiver (SA5881-6NECRM) and a wired fixed-word K4576 keypad (which I believe does not have programmable options). I recently hired an Ackerman technician to install the wireless receiver as well as a few 5800 wireless sensors (5853 glassbreak and 5800PIR-RES motion sensors). I now want to add additional sensors to my security system; do you recommend me to upgrade my keypad to a 6150RF to program these sensors myself or there is another way to program the sensors into the wireless receiver? Thank you so much!
