How Do I Un-Bypass A Bypassed Zone On a Honeywell System?
On a Honeywell Vista panel, when a zone is bypassed, if the system is disarmed that zone will automatically be un-bypassed. To re-arm the Vista system if the zone is still faulted, a user would have to bypass the zone again each time they want to re-arm the system.
To bypass a zone on a Vista system, first enter in the Master Code (default is 1234). Then press the bypass key, which is 6, followed by the zone number. The zone number will always have to be 2 digits on Vista-21iP and below panels. On Vista-128BPT and Vista-250BPT panels, the zone number will contain 3 digits.
Example for bypassing zone 4: enter [User Code] +  + . If zone 4 was the only faulted zone, a green ready light will appear and users can then arm the system as usual. The user code must be either a Master Code, or a Standard User.
If Forced Bypass is enabled in panel programming (Programming Location *23 = 1) then you can enter [User Code] +  + [#]. This will automatically bypass all faulted zones. The system will come up ready, and the user can then arm.
Intruders may gain access through unprotected openings or have the technical sophistication to bypass an alarm sensor or disconnect an alarm warning device
To enable the bypass feature, the system must be in the disarmed mode.Select the “Zones” icon and a Zone/Bypass display will appear.
Select the zone or zones to be bypassed, then select Bypass.
Selecting the “Bypass All Faulted” button allows to bypass all faulted zones (excluding Panic, Fire or CO zones).
The system will then display a keypad.
Enter a valid user code.
The system returns to the Bypass screen and the zone or zones that are bypassed will be displayed.
Select the return icon to the Security Screen.
Arm the system as usual.
To clear the bypass, the system will need to be in the disarmed state. Select the “Zones” icon. The system displays the Zone screen and the status for each zone will be indicated.
Use the buttons to scroll to additional pages and view the zone status.
If the “Select All” was selected, it scrolls through the following: “Select All”, “Select Alarm”, If the “Select All” was selected, it scrolls through the following: “Select All”, “Select Alarm”, “Select Trouble”, “Select Fault” and Select Bypassed”. The system displays the associated zones.
If one or more zones has been bypassed the “Clear Bypasses” button will be highlighted
To clear the bypass, select the “Clear Bypasses” button.
Enter a valid user code on the displayed keypad. The system returns to the Zones screen.
