The Tuxedo Touch Keypad: Checking the ECP and RIS Address
In this video, Jorge from Alarm Grid shows you how to check the ECP Address and RIS Address on a Honeywell Tuxedo Touch Keypad. This information is used to set up the Tuxedo Touch Keypad with the Honeywell VISTA System and Total Connect 2.0. The ECP Address is used when addressing the Tuxedo with the VISTA System, while the RIS Address is used when syncing the Tuxedo with AlarmNet and Total Connect 2.0.
When setting the ECP Address, you must choose an enabled AUI device slot on the system. For a VISTA-20P or VISTA-21iP, the possible AUI device slots are 1, 2, 5, and 6. Remember that Total Connect 2.0 will also use an AUI device slot, assuming you are using your VISTA System with the Total Connect 2.0 platform. In simple terms, the ECP Address tells the VISTA Panel where to find the Tuxedo Touch as a keypad controller.
As for the RIS Address, this settings tells AlarmNet and Total Connect 2.0 where to find the Tuxedo Touch as an automation controller. One thing to keep in mind is that you should not have the Tuxedo Touch set as the primary RIS device if Total Connect 2.0 is also being used with the system. Therefore, you should not check that corresponding box if Total Connect 2.0 is also being used.
Both the ECP Address and the RIS Address for the Tuxedo Touch are set within the same menu. This menu is accessed on the Tuxedo Touch by starting from the main screen and choosing the Settings icon in the bottom-left, followed by System, and then CS Setup. You will then be asked to provide the Installer Code. A Tuxedo Touch that hasn't been set up with a VISTA System has a default Installer Code of 4140. Otherwise, the Tuxedo Touch shares an Installer Code with the VISTA System, which has a default Installer Code of 4112. You can then choose the ECP Address button to access the menu.
Hi, DIY-ers. George here from Alarm Grid. Today, I'm going to be showing you guys how to find the ECP address and the RIS address, which is the Remote Interactive Service Address, on your Honeywell Tuxedo Touch Wi-Fi. Now, to start off the Tuxedo Touch Wi-Fi, it actually is a keypad that's used to control the alarm system, but it also acts as an automation controller, so you can control any lights, locks, thermostats, switches, garage door controllers, any Z-Wave wave devices that you guys may have in your home. Now, when you guys have a Tuxedo attached to your VISTA system, it actually goes wired into the ECP bus, which is usually terminals four through seven-- two for power, two for data. And then it's going to have to have an ECP address so that it actually has a keypad slot for the actual VISTA system. And then it is going to have an RIS address, which, again, stands for Remote Interactive Services, so that if you guys do decide to get it monitored and get Total Connect set up on it, Total Connect knows where to look for the actual Z-Wave automation. So, basically, to quickly take a look at these, you are going to need the installer code. The installer code-- if you have the Tuxedo already programmed to your VISTA system, then the installer code is actually going to be pulled from the panel. If you guys don't have the Tuxedo already hooked up to the panel, it's going to have its own default code. So you want to make sure you guys know your panel's installer code if you have it hooked up to the panel. Our systems are usually defaulted, so the installer code is going to be 4112, and I'm going to show you guys how to access that screen in a second. So the first thing we have to do, is on the bottom left-hand corner from the main screen, there's going to be a little screwdriver and wrench icon. That's the Settings-- or the Tools. We're going to hit the Tools icon, bottom left corner. From there, we're going to go to System. Now, from System, we have to go to CS Setup. Here's where it's going to ask you for your installer code. I'm going to enter in 4112. Now, from there, ECP address is one of the first options you'll see. So you go to ECP address. And on this screen is where you will see the Tuxedo ECP address. This is where the system needs to know where to look to find the keypad. So this keypad is set to ECP address 1, so the system is going to be looking at the ECP address 1 for this keypad. And then the RIS address, that's going to be 25. That's where Total Connect is going to be looking for the automation, if you guys do get that set up on Total Connect. You can change it using the down arrow keys. Again, if you wait too long, it'll back out. So again, just to show you guys-- wrench icon, bottom left corner. You're going to go to System, CS Setup, 4112. Super easy to get to-- ECP address. And there you can see all your information. You want to make sure you guys have this noted down. It's very important you guys do not have a Tuxedo on the same ECP address or you guys will get ECP conflicts. That's not the only thing that may cause an ECP conflict. You might also have a wiring issue. So always make sure you're troubleshooting with technicians so you guys can actually diagnose what's going on. But yeah, this is just a quick video showing you guys how to find your ECP address and your RIS address on your Honeywell Tuxedo Touch Wi-Fi. My name is George.
