I had an old Acron alarm system with just 2 zones that no longer worked. Since I only have 2 zones and didn't need any advanced features, I chose the VISTA-10P to replace my Acron. Took me about one hour to change over all the wiring from the Acron to the VISTA and then I replaced the Acron keypad with a 6160 keypad and now I have a working system.

I live in a high rise condo and even though the building is fairly safe, I was worried that the management company was coming into my unit when I was away. I got this kit so that I could monitor whenever somone accessed my front door. Week after I installed it, I came home to a front door alarm on my touchscreen. Now I know they have been in my unit without permission. With that proof I can now fight them over the unathorized access.

This product helped me get the job done, and my glass breaks all got placed in the right spot. If you are on your own, and need some installation help, this site has great resources. But this glass break simulator does an amazing job of making sensor installation a snap.

I'm a DIYer, and I haven't gotten signed up with the AlarmNet service yet. Once I do I'm pretty sure this communicator is going to be awesome, doing exactly what I need it to do. Install was simple, and once I get things up and running, I'll come back and let you know for sure how it works.

I have never owned such an amazing keypad. I attached it to my vista panels along, installed some of the neat apps they have, and am absolutely loving the functionality. I do not have weather turned on (I have a iphone, so I don't need it on my Tuxedo) so I'm not sure about Joe65's problem, but everything else makes this worth it.

So turns out you can't use Total Connect 2.0 unless your Vista is a certain version. I had to buy this unit just to get the upgrade chip that is included. Now I have to try and sell my extra IGSMV on ebay but at least I have TC2!

Installation was super easy. Instructions are for the majority straight forward and it's pretty user friendly. L5100PK suits my needs. Highly recommended as a low-cost alarm system.

I have two Tuxedo Touch units installed this past March. Both are hard wired via Ethernet to my router and both worked flawlessly for about four months. Then I started noticing on both units the weather display function was erratic working sometimes and others showing “connection error” in the display. The other internet functions work ok. After two weeks of erratic operation, the weather function stopped working entirely. I contacted my alarm provider tech support and was told that Honeywell is aware of the problem and is working on a fix. So I waited. It’s now been 45 days since the weather function ceased working and Honeywell will not provide a date when they expect to have the problem resolved. I was told the problem is with Honeywell and there is nothing I can do. Now my tech support has gone silent on the issue. This unit is not recommended until Honeywell restores the weather display function.

Man Honeywell finally got it right with the 5811. I've never liked how the 5816s are so boxy so I've tried almost all of the smaller sensors. Problem is those sensors dont have the same wirelss range as the 5816. It's been a struggle to decide between a sensor that looks better or one that loses its connection from time to time. Now that they have the 5811, I swapped all my sensors out to these super thin sensors and I never have wireless range issues!
