How Do I Add User Codes To A VISTA 20P, 21iP, 15P, 10P?
A master user code is the only code that can create secondary user codes.
Honeywell's factory default master code, which is user 02 on every panel mentioned above, is 1234. The master code can be changed by using the current master code or the installer code (Honeywell's factory default installer code is 4112). To change the master user code enter the existing 4 digit master code, followed by the numbers 8 0 2 plus the new 4 digit master code twice, i.e.,  +  +  +  + . When you've successfully changed the user code, you will hear a short confirmation beep, letting you know the code has been updated. To use the Installer Code to change the Master Code, once you're outside programming, enter Installer Code+8+02+New 4 digit code, i.e.,  +  +  + . You will hear a brief confirmation beep once the code is changed.
In addition to the 4 digit user code, a user is assigned a 2 digit user number. The master code user number is 02, the installer code is user 01. Remembering the 2 digit user number is very important if you need to delete a user code.
To delete a secondary code, do the following: [Master Code] +  + [User Number] + [#] + . You will receive a short confirmation beep letting you know the code has been deleted.
To add a secondary user code, enter the 4 digit master code followed by the number 8, plus the 2 digit user number (any number from 03 or higher) plus the 4 digit user code, i.e.,  +  +  + . The system will beep to confirm the user was added.
Each user code can be assigned an authority level. The authority level defines which system functions the user can or cannot do. The master code does not have an authority level. The available levels are as follows:
Level 0 = standard level, users can arm and disarm the system and bypass zones.
Level 1 = arm only - can arm the system but cannot disarm the system.
Level 2 = guest - can arm the system but can only disarm if the system was armed using this code.
Level 3 = duress code - when used the system will disarm normally but will send a silent signal to the central monitoring station informing them of a hostile situation and authorities will be contacted immediately,
Level 4 = Partition Master (Vista 20P, Vista 21iP only). A Partition Master has the same permissions as the System Master, but for their respective partition only. A Partition Master can change itself and any secondary code in its partition, but can not be used to change the System Master (User 02).
When creating a security code, you need to choose a 2 digit user number, a 4 digit user code, assign an authority level to that user, and determine any other attributes that should be assigned to it, such as assigning a keyfob to it.
To assign the authority level attribute - We will show assigning user 03 as a Guest Code (Authority Level 2.) Enter master code followed by the number 8, plus the 2 digit user number, the # sign plus 1 (attribute), plus the authority level, i.e.,  +  +  + [#] +  + . You will get a short confirmation beep, letting you know the command has been successfully executed.
User numbers 03 and higher on the Vista 15P, and Vista 10P, and users 04 through 32, and 34 through 49 on the Vista 20P, and the Vista 21iP will automatically be assigned authority Level 0 = standard user, when created. See below for a list of all attributes that can be assigned to user codes.
The Vista 20P and 21iP support a total of 49 user codes.
The Vista 15P supports a total of 33 user codes.
The Vista 10P supports a total of 17 users codes.
The total number of user codes includes the master and installer codes.
