Honeywell VISTA 21IP: Adding Door, Connecting Battery, Powering On

So now that we have our keypads connected, we're going to finish up at the panel here. We've got our panel door. The door has three hinges that fit into the slots here so the door can close, and it comes with a lock and key along with our resistor bag and that's so you can keep this panel nice and secure. So what you do is fit it into the hole. This was a knockout. We had to knock that out. So you fit it in. You press. Now that we have our keypads connected, we're going to finish up by installing our cabinet door. You can see the cabinet has three hinges, three slots. That's how it fits in, and there's a knockout which we've already knocked out right here for a key and a lock. This key and lock comes along in the baggie with the two resistors, and what you want to do is make sure that you orient it so that when you turn the lock the latch will come up and come up here to lock the panel. It's not the most secure, sophisticated lock, but it does the trick to keep someone out of the panel in a pinch when they break in. So what we're going to do is fit it. It only fits in one way and push it until the little snap tabs click. And then we can align the hinges making sure we're not going to pinch any wires, and when we lock the door, take out the key, the panel door can't open. Stick the key in and turn it, it swings open. You've got a nice handy wire diagram on the inside of your panel door. It lets you know what this whole mess of wires is all about. So at this point we are ready to power up, the moment we've all been waiting for. The first thing we want to do is connect our battery. The panel will not power up off the battery alone. However, if you lose power to the panel and the battery is connected it will give you juice enough to keep the panel going. So that's why we do it first is so we don't have any low battery signal generated. Typically you're going to seat your battery in the bottom of your panel on the lip here. We don't have a ton of room here with all this wiring, but we'll do our best to squeeze it all in. I'm actually going to put it in this spot in the left corner to give easy access in case whenever the battery is going to need to be replaced. I don't want to scrunch these wires by the terminal so I'm going to try and keep them neat down in the corner. And now we've got our transformer, our old faceplate. And just like with the old Destiny keypad when we plugged this in we've got a screw to affix it to the faceplate here, so that no one inadvertently unplug it. You can see there's lights on the board. As soon as I'm done screwing this in... I'm going to re-do that because I pulled out my wire here. I want to push it back in as best I can. So I'm going to leave this wire hanging out. Let's try that again. You can see now that the lights are still lighted even though it's unplugged because we've got it by battery. Any how we don't have that wire showing, and it's plugged in. So the panel is all good to go. We're going to close it up, and we're going to now show addressing the keypad to finalize the system installation.
