The Honeywell VISTA-128BPT is an alarm control panel powerful enough for any commercial application. The VISTA-128BPT is a member of the Honeywell VISTA Turbo Series of alarm control panels. VISTA Turbo Series alarm control panels have enhanced system performance and responsiveness. The speed of RS232 communications have been increased on all VISTA Turbo Series alarm control panels to provide a better user experience when integrated with WIN-PAK, Pro-Watch and other automation softwares. VISTA Turbo Series control panels also eliminate the need for some of the extra components and modules needed with the non-Turbo commercial alarm control panels to lower your cost and improve ease of installation. Another benefit of the VISTA Turbo Series control panels is that the VISTA-128BPT commercial alarm control panel is compatible with up to (6) touchscreen Advanced User Interface (AUI) alarm keypads such as the Honeywell Tuxedo Touch or Honeywell Tuxedo Touch WIFI whereas the older VISTA-128BPE only supported up to (3) AUI alarm keypads. Finally, the Honeywell VISTA Turbo Series alarm control panels fully support AlarmNet’s Total Connect interactive service when paired with a compatible AlarmNet alarm monitoring communicator. The non-Turbo alarm control panels only had limited Total Connect support.
The VISTA-128BPT alarm control panel supports (9) standard hardwired zones and up to (119) additional V-Plex® zones that use the integrated polling loop interface. Honeywell’s unique and patented V-Plex global polling loop technology has changed the game by providing inexpensive but high performance protection using a simple pair of wires. V-Plex technology allows you to use only (2) wires instead of (4) when connecting motion detectors and glass break detectors, or any other 4-wire protection devices. With V-Plex loops, you no longer have to run each 4-wire device all the way back to your Honeywell alarm control panel or use conventional 4-wire loops. V-Plex devices draw very little current and connect to your VISTA-128BPT alarm control panel with standard twisted pair wiring for power and data which means you will almost never need to add auxiliary power supplies with bigger commercial installations. The built-in Point ID feature provides fast and accurate information pinpointing exactly where an alarm event has originated. V-Plex is also scalable so that you can easily add new protection devices as your security needs change. The VISTA-128BPT provides economical zone expansion and unique point identification so Alarm Grid’s central station will know exactly which V-Plex device was activated in all alarm situations.
The Honeywell VISTA-128BPT also allows you to use Honeywell 5800 Series wireless devices when it is not economical or feasible to run wires through your home or business. By adding a Honeywell wireless receiver, you will be able to use up to (127) wireless zones with your commercial alarm control panel. Keep in mind that every standard hardwired zone or V-Plex zone used will reduce the number of wireless zones that can be added. The VISTA-128BPT commercial alarm control panel is different than residential alarm control panels like the Honeywell VISTA-20P because you can add (2) wireless receivers to produce a much larger range of wireless capability. This is an important feature upgrade as commercial installations typically cover a much larger area than residential installations. You can also break out your VISTA-128BPT zones over (8) independent partitions in case your commercial installation has different security needs throughout the different areas of your building.
The Honeywell commercial alarm control panel supports up to (150) user codes which can each be assigned to one of (7) different authority levels. For the more advanced commercial properties, the VISTA-128BPT alarm control panel can also be integrated with Honeywell’s WIN-PAK access control systems to provide even more user codes. The VISTA-128BPT supports V-Plex addressable VISTAKey access control modules for up to (8) doors and (250) cards. You can program your commercial alarm control panel with different open/close schedules to control when your VISTA-128BPT is armed or disarmed. To further control access to your business, you can also program access schedules to allow users access to the property only during preset times. The VISTA-128BPT commercial alarm control panel brings together advanced security and access control in one streamlined system.
As the Honeywell VISTA-128BPT commercial alarm control panel has so many different features and can be integrated with so many different systems, the programming is much more advanced than programming a low-end Honeywell VISTA Series alarm control panel. You will need an alphanumeric alarm keypad such as the Honeywell 6160 to complete the progrmaming of your VISTA-128BPT. Programming should only be attempted by advanced users that fully understand the VISTA-128BPT installation guide.
