How Do I Connect A VISTA 20p To Wireless Internet?
At this time there is no module to connect a Vista 20P wirelessly to the internet.
The Vista 20P can be connected to the internet using the Honeywell 7847i internet communicator.
The Honeywell 7847i connects to a VISTA Series control panel with a 4-wire connection. Once the 7847i is installed, connect an Ethernet wire from an open port on the internet network's router or switch to the RJ45 Ethernet connector on the 7847i. The 7847i internet communicator will transmit alarm signals to AlarmNet's servers the route them to a central station using your broadband internet connection. The 7847i internet alarm communicator uses minimal bandwidth so it will not affect normal internet service.
Installing an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) or battery backup for your modem and router is recommended to prevent losing internet service during a power outage. The Vista control panel has a battery backup but without a UPS installed, will fail to send signals as there will be no internet available.
The Honeywell 7847i is supervised and the alarm monitoring company should be able to inform users whenever the internet communication path is down.
If losing communication is a concern, a Honeywell iGSMV4G for dual path communication can be used. The iGSMV4G combines both an internet communicator and a gsm cell communicator. The first path of communication will be the internet and the gsm cell communicator will be the backup. If for any reason internet is lost signals will still be sent via the gsm cell communicator.
Installing a 7847i or iGSMV4G communicator provides compatibility for the Vista series panel with Total Connect 2.0.
Total Connect 2.0 is an app that allows users to remotely control a Honeywell alarm system, home automation and video surveillance. Users will receive notifications via email and or text messages on any alarm signal or event.
