What is the Difference Between the Honeywell VISTA 10P and the VISTA 10SE?

The difference between the Honeywell VISTA 10P and the VISTA 10SE is the fact that the 10SE is even more limited than the 10P. However, both systems are quite limited by today's standards, with neither being able to sync with Total Connect or control any Z-Wave home automation devices.

One of the most notable differences between the two systems is the number of supported zones. The VISTA 10SE can support up to 22 zones, with 6 being hardwired and 16 being wireless. Meanwhile, the VISTA 10P can support up to 30 zones, with 6 being hardwired and 24 being wireless. Neither system can use a hardwired zone expander, like the Honeywell 4219, and both will require a wireless receiver, such as the 6150RF, to use wireless zones.

Another difference between the VISTA 10SE and the VITSA 10P is that the VISTA 10P has a configurable zone type option, while the VISTA 10SE does not. A configurable zone is a zone that will provide a non-standard response when the zone becomes faulted. This is often used for vent zones and garage door sensors. However, the VISTA 10P only allows for one configurable zone type per system, making this functionality very limited.

The VISTA 10SE and VISTA 10P also differ in the number of user codes they support. The VISTA 10P will support up to 16 codes, while the VISTA 10SE will only support up to 7. On both these panels, the first code is the installer code, and the second code is the master code. Additionally, the last code on both panels can be programmed to be used as either a duress code or as another user code.

Finally, the VISTA 10P includes a built-in clock, while the VISTA 10SE does not. This means that the VISTA 10SE cannot perform any actions based upon on a schedule. However, this is possible on a VISTA 10P, but only for a very limited number of events.
