How Do I Get Into Programming On My VISTA-P System?

To get into programming on a Vista P control panel, enter the installer code followed by the numbers 8 0 0 on a Honeywell keypad. Honeywell’s factory default installer code is 4112.

If pressing 4112 followed by 800 does not cause your keypad display to change to Installer Code 20 or 20, your installer code may have been changed from the default 4112. Luckily, there is a back door method to get into programming.

To enter via the back door, power down the panel by unplugging the transformer and disconnecting one of the lead's to the panel's backup battery. Power the system back up by plugging the transformer into the outlet again. Within 50 seconds of doing that, press and hold the (*) star and (#) pound keys simultaneously on your keypad for 3 full seconds.

Once * and # have been pressed and held, "Installer Code 20" will be displayed if you have an alphanumeric keypad and "20" will be displayed if you have a Fixed English keypad. The alpha keypad will allow users to enter sub-menus such as *56 zone programming and *29 communicator programming while the Fixed English is limited to viewing only the basic programming selections. Please refer to the VISTA 15P, 20P programming guide for complete programming fields. If you want to change the installer code once you are in programming, press *20 followed by a 4 digit number that you want to set as the new installer code. This code can not be an existing panel master or user code. If the new installer code is accepted, you'll hear the keypad beep and advance to the next programming field which is *21.

Finally, to exit programming, press *99.

The 4110XM is quite a bit different from the Vista P series panels, which this FAQ pertains to. Even defaulting a 4110XM is different because instead of setting all fields back to their default, it sets them all to 0, which is NOT the default for each field. We (Alarm Grid) do not sell the 4110XM, so we don't have a programming guide for it listed on our site, but you should be able to google a 4110XM programming form, and then go through the fields to correct any errors. The 4110XM will not support an Alpha Keypad, such as the 6160, however, it is one of the easiest panels to program as no alpha keypad is required. On the 4110XM, the Installer Code and the Master Code are the same, and both are fount in programming field 20. You should be able to power down the panel, power it back up, and within 50 seconds, press the asterisk (*) and pound (#) keys to get you into programming. If you enter programming, you should see a 20 displayed on the keypad. Press *20, then enter your 4-digit master code. From there, follow the programming form to check all other settings. When you exit programming, be sure to press *99 to exit, not *98.

No, programming is stored in non-volatile memory.
