How do I install a Honeywell 7847i on a VISTA-21iP?
Installing a 7847i internet communicator to a VISTA-21iP security system is very simple. It is just like adding a 7847i to any other VISTA Series alarm control panel. The 7847i gets wired to the panel just like an alarm keypad or wireless receiver. However, because the VISTA-21iP is already equipped with a built-in internet communicator there really is no reason to install a 7847i on a VISTA-21iP.
A VISTA-21iP is essentially a VISTA-20P with a 7847i built right into the board. If for some reason your internal IP communicator is not working on your VISTA-21iP and you need to add a 7847i for internet communications, simply connect the 7847i to the ECP terminals on the alarm control panel. Once you have the device connected, you can plug in your Ethernet cable to the 7847i instead of the built-in port on the 21iP.
Program your VISTA-21iP not to use its internal communicator and your 7847i will be setup and ready to be activated for AlarmNet monitoring service.
