Where do I connect a Honeywell 4219 on a VISTA-20P?

While the Honeywell VISTA-20P supports up to (8) hardwired zones right out of the box, you can add a Honeywell 4219 hardwired zone expansion module to add additional hardwired zone capability. Each 4219 expansion module adds an additional (8) hardwired zones to your VISTA-20P. You can use multiple 4219 zone expanders to upgrade your Honeywell VISTA-20P to a maximum of (48) hardwired protections zones.

When installing the Honeywell 4219, you can use the 'TB2' terminal block or the (4) pin console plug found directly above the 'TB2' terminal block to wire the 4219 to your VISTA-20P alarm control panel. In fact, you can even use both the 'TB2' terminal block and the (4) pin console plug if you want a redundant connection. It does not matter which connection you decide to use, but it is important that you make the proper connection on the VISTA-20P alarm control panel. The first terminal on the 'TB2' terminal block and/or the first pin on the (4) console plug must be connected to terminal 7 on the VISTA-20P terminal strip. The second terminal on the 'TB2' terminal block and/or the second pin on the (4) console plug need to be connected to terminal 5 on the VISTA-20P. (You'll notice that the second pin on the (4) console plug is actually separated from the first pin by an empty slot.) The third terminal on the 'TB2' terminal block and/or the third pin on the (4) pin console plug should be connected to terminal 4 on the VISTA-20P terminal strip. Finally the fourth terminal on the 'TB2' terminal block and/or the fourth pin on the (4) pin console plug should be connected to terminal 6 on the VISTA-20P alarm control panel.

If you are using standard 4 conductor alarm wire with a red, black, green and yellow conductor, the following connections should be used. The yellow conductor should be connected between the 'DATA OUT' terminal (#7) on the VISTA-20P and terminal 1 and/or pin 1 on the 4219. The red conductor should be connected between the 'POWER (+)' terminal (#5) on the VISTA-20P and the second terminal and/or pin on the 4219. The black conductor should be connected between the 'GROUND (-)' terminal (#4) on the VISTA-20P and the third terminal and/or pin on the 4219. Finally, the yellow conductor should be connected between the 'DATA IN' terminal (#6) on the VISTA-20P and terminal 4 and/or pin 4 on the 4219 zone expansion module.

You are very welcome and I apologize for not having a more specific answer. If you do find a good part to use, please reply back letting other know.
Thank you so much.
We don't carry any parts that would aid in that and usually recommend just trying to keep things neat on the panel as adding extra terminals blocks just leads to more confusion sometimes but we've certainly heard of people doing setups like that and if you do some Googling around the subject, you should be able to find some parts online to pull it off.
Hey Sterling. First thanks for the many videos you've made. They helped me immensely when I set up my Vista 20p system. My question is similar to the topic above. I have 4 keyboards, two zone expansion boards, and an EVL internet connection wired to the main panel. I want to install a relay board, but the wiring to the panel terminals is getting crowded. Do you know of an efficient way to wire these devices to a stand alone terminal block, which would then connect to the terminals on the panel. Or is there already a standard solution for this type of situation. Your help is greatly appreciated. Kevin
You just have to delete any zones that are setup with Aux Wire for Input Type.
Correct, just delete any zones associated with the "phantom" expansion module.
I used some of the same zone numbers for RF contacts. SO I would have to delete them all and then start back from scratch? If I do this, the phantom expansion module just goes away?
You just have to delete each zone that is programmed to that module in the *56 zone programming menu. There is no actual programming for the expansion module itself.
How do you delete a previously programmed expansion module from the Vista panel?
