hadia wires I'm George from alarm grid today we're going to be going over what Honeywell systems are compatible with the SEM which is a system enhancement module for alarm comm now just so you guys understand here this is the SEM it actually has a little QR code on the back that it when you guys buy it if you need help with installation if you just scan the little QR code it's gonna give you the install instructions alright it also comes with the installation instructions on the inside it's a little booklet but this is the SEM this is the cellular communicator that's gonna allow your Vista systems to communicate to alarm comm now this is different because generally Honeywell systems only work with alarm that's Total Connect 2.0 so this is actually pretty neat for those users that are looking to do alarm calm and alarm.com integrations it's pretty neat especially if you can add this now how do you tell if your Vista system is compatible with this SEM well any Vista Vista p-series system is compatible so did the Vista 10p the vista 15p the 20p and the 21ip are both compatible today we're actually working with a 21 IP and I'm just gonna show you a couple of ways on how to find the information you need to see if your panel will work with it so first things first the panel in order to be compatible with the SEM does need to be a revision 3.0 or above alright so if it's a Vista 20p it needs to be version 3.0 or above if you have a Vista 20p that's 2.0 or below it cannot be prom upgraded and if you have a Vista if you have a Vista P that's one revision one point over below that panel must be replaced entirely there's really not much you can do with that Vista 20p if it's below prom revision 1.0 and to find the prom there they look a little bit different on every panel so for instance on my vista 21ip the prom chip is usually always going to be in the center of the board it's a little black ship right here with a white sticker now this one's all sideways but basically when you guys look at your Vista prom chip it's gonna start with the letters W a as in whiskey alpha and since I have a 21ip it's actually letting me know that it's a W a 21ip 4.23 that is actually the latest revision for the vista 21ip for the 20 pieces on the vista 15 piece you have a revision of 10.23 which is the latest one as of right now that can obviously change in the future now what I was saying about the manufacturer and date as well not only does it have to have an up-to-date prom chip or a pretty decent prompt the manufacture date also has to be after 2005 if it's before 2005 the FCM will not work with it and again that manufacturer the manufacturing year can be found on the prompt chip as well this one's actually a lot small it's a lot smaller writing than the whiskey off a 21ip it'll actually show you right underneath right underneath where it says Honeywell it'll say mm this one's a 2014 it's just really really small so if you guys are looking at the prom chip make sure you're looking at it with your lights on if you can take a picture of it so you can try to zoom in because the lettering on that is very small so you're right so you want to make sure you look at the year and manufacturer as well now the SEM also works with the SI a series so if you has a if you have a Vista 15 psi a or 20 psi a also something to keep in mind now if you guys do the side to use the 21ip with the SEM you guys the 21 MP is weird because as a built-in communicator so it has an internal IP communicator so we have to actually turn or move the jumper from the on position to the off position so that we turn the internal communicator off which allows us to use an external communicator now when moving the jumper which is up here in the upper left corner does little white this little white jumper plastic piece it's connected to the two upper prongs right now before we remove that piece we need to power system down completely so we would move we power the system down by unplugging it from the backup battery and unplugging the transformer and after we've powered it down this little piece here instead of having it connected to the top two prongs you just unplug it and you move it down to the bottom two prongs all right that's gonna turn off the internal communication allowing you to use the external would the external communicator here now this just so you know is gonna go wired in to the same terminals that your keep has are wired into this is treated like basically an extra keypad for the system it also has z-wave compatibility so if you guys have a vampire a tuxedo on your existing Vista system if you guys want to use automation with the alarm.com service you're gonna have to get rid of that z-wave controller that you have existing and you're gonna need to use this as your new z-wave controller because this has z-wave compatibility built in so this will allow you to add z-wave devices to your Honeywell Vista 15 P 20 P 21ip even the Vista 10 P now that brings me to another thing the Vista 10 P that usually is not a system that works with Total Connect 2.0 we've before this if you had a Vista 10 P and you wanted to do interactive services through an app that was not capable of doing with that system because Total Connect only works with Vista 15 P's and above all right so before this the vista 10 p you could only do basic monitoring with but now that the SEM has come out you can actually add this to your Vista 10 P and you can make your vista 10 P work with interactive services with the alarm comm app there is also a DSC SEM that works with the DSC power series systems so make sure that if you guys are buying the SEM you buy the correct one if you get the DSC one it will not work with the Honeywell Vista system so something to keep in mind there there also if you go to our FAQ that's basically tied in with this video there's a list at the bottom that shows you every no panel that the SEM is this SEM is compatible with it'll show you all the Vista panels and it's also compatible with most first alert panels so take a look if you have a first alert system and you guys are looking to do interactive services take a look at the list that we have see if one of those models of the first alert systems is what you have and maybe you may want to add this to your system and get monitored that is pretty much it for the Vista systems again just take a look at the prompt and the year that it was manufactured from there we'll be able to tell if you can use the SEM if you guys do have any questions about it and compatibility feel free to email us at support at alarm care comm you can also go ahead and hit like on the video if you found it helpful subscribe to the YouTube channel and enable no
