Description

This a bundled kit that comes with a dual path AlarmNet communicator and a PROM chip upgrade for Honeywell VISTA-15P and VISTA-20P alarm panels. The iGSMV4G supports internet and cellular communications. The internet is the primary path and requires a hardwired ethernet connection the LAN port of your router. The cellular portion of this device uses an AT&T 3G and 4G capable SIM card. The SIM is included with the product. The AT&T service is activated by your monitoring provider. Generally all cellular data charges are bundled into the monthly monitoring for flat fee.

This kit will include the latest revision PROM chip available by Honeywell. The Total Connect 2.0 interactive service requires revision 9.12 or higher on 15P and 20P alarm systems. If you have an older 15/20P, a PROM chip upgrade allows your existing system to support TC 2.0 and compass downloading (remote programming via IP or cell by your alarm company). Currently we are shipping revision 10.23 chips but as new revisions are released those will be sent out.

The beauty of the iGSMV4G is that it supports IP and cellular based communications. It leaves alarm owners with the most flexible situation. You can choose to setup IP only service and save some money. Then if the internet connection starts having issues you can upgrade to a dual path setup. On the other hand, you can start with dual path and feel confident that your system will never lose communications with the central station operators.

Glad you were able to remove the PROM chip. Now that you have upgraded the chip have you taken a look at our non-contract plans: https://www.alarmgrid.com/monitoring
Got it! Just pulling on the small binder clip wouldn't budge it, so I had to insert a tool through the binder clip and brace it on the board to give me a fulcrum and leverage to pry the chip and the socket apart. Whew! Thanks for the help.
There are a few but a Vista 20P can do a prom chip upgrade
Thanks. Yes, I’ve tried small and medium binder clips in the manner you suggest, and now a specialized chip puller, although it’s too wide to fit flat in the slot, so I was trying it at an angle. I’m familiar with pulling chips in other contexts, but this one isn’t budging. I’m backing off as I start to put too much stress on the board, so I don’t break anything. I have a WA20P-5.2, copyright Honeywell 2006, REV 5.2 so that seems fine. The socket is black - do you think there could have been some boards made with non-replaceable chips, to reduce the cost of the board?

You can also take two of these clips, put one in the upper right corner, and the other in the lower left, and lever both at the same time. You can see that in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DdjbXOJlkQ
I tried a small and a medium one. I’ll take another look.
What size the binder clip? The medium size is a perfect fit if you take the angled edge and insert it into the corner of the prom housing with the slot. If that does not work you can always get a PROM extractor. Unfortunately we do not currently sell one.
I bought the iGSMV4G-TC2 combo kit, but when trying to replace the prom, the old one doesn’t seem to want to come out, and I want to make sure I don’t damage the panel. i’ve tried the blinder clip approach, but not any type of specialized chip puller yet.
Yes it is! Here is a link to our store: http://alrm.gd/amazon-storefront-F7C4. You can search for parts within our store by simply plugging it into the search bar. You will notice that Alarm Grid is listed on the search bar on the left.

We bundle cellular data charges into our monthly plans which is why the cellular based plans are a bit more expensive. We register the SIMs and activate service. Then we pay monthly cellular charges to the carriers. All you do is pay your no contract flat rate for the service you need. You will need to choose a gold level plan for cellular monitoring. Check out our plans here: https://www.alarmgrid.com/monitoring
Do you have an existing cellular or internet communicator? If not you will need the IGSMV4G as well as the PROM chip upgrade to get you above revision 9.12 which is required for Total Connect 2.0. I recommend getting the kit which comes with both parts you need. Check out our FAQ for wiring the iGSM4G to the VISTA-20P: https://www.alarmgrid.com/faq/how-do-i-install-the-honeywell-igsmv4g-on-my-vista-system. When you get the equipment you can reach out directly for free tech support as well.
Feel free to email me back directly if you wish. And one last question: If I get this kit or the CDMA kit, do I need to also engage ATT/Verizon for cell service too (incuring an additional monthly charge)?
Hi @sterlingdonnelly:disqus -- I'm in a similar boat as m0unds. I have a WA20P-7.0 (2009) chip and main board. I am considering your "self silver" or "self bronze" option. Do I need to purchase this board as well as the chip, or do I only need to do the chip upgrade to the 10.23 firmware version? Also, I installed and configured my system by myself, and I imagine that v10.23 has some new features and programming modes. How do I get information on that, so that I can program the new system correctly? Thanks!
Indeed it will!
Will this work for a Vista 20psia on the WA20PSIA Rev 7.0 to make it dual path monitoring and TC2 compatible?
Great, we look forward to working with you soon!
Yeah, we're probably going to provision service with you once this quarter w/our current provider is up. We're using a local company (ABQ, NM market) who only do cellular as a dialer. My wife liked having smartphone features, so here we are :) I look forward to swapping the telguard dialer out for this kit here in the next month or so.
You are very welcome. We hope you consider using us for monitoring as we offer no-contract plans online at https://www.alarmgrid.com/monitoring and we are experts on the Honeywell systems.
Awesome. Thanks!
Yes, we have successfully PROM upgraded Protection One panels and your version should support the new PROM chip.
Hi, It shows: WA320P1-7.0 / 2009 REV 7.0 - I'm hoping the P1 part of the SKU doesn't mean it's a non-replaceable custom part :)
What is the actual full WA PROM number?
Do you know whether Protection1 Vista 20p panels are PROM upgradeable? My panel has a 7.xx version chip in it right now. Thx
Sorry for the typo on this page Mark. We've updated as the Safewatch 2000 is a VISTA-20SE equivalent and the VISTA-20SE can't be PROM upgraded. You would need to fully replace the control panel with a new panel that does support TC2 (such as a VISTA-21iP).
You indicate above that this kit will take a Safewatch Pro 2000 and make it TC 2.0 compatible. Elsewhere on the site you say that this isn't possible. Can you clarify? Thanks from a loyal customer considering taking a second home off of ADT.
