Honeywell VISTA 21IP: Swapping Out an APEX Destiny Security System Part (4 of 8)


I so we've got our two sets of resistors here and we've got our legend here to show us which is which the important thing to note when you're doing your zone doubling is the 3 k's on the ones with orange are going to go for the low side of the zone or the lower number of the zone and the other ones for the higher number so the way you do zone doubling I'm going to take two different zones and laying them on one set of terminals so ground and z2 and the way it works is your zone 2 will also be your zone 10 and your different value resistor will let you know which witch is which device is actually going off so I'm going to take one of my 3k resistors since we're doing our zone 2 and go with the lower value resistor I'm going to take my little connector piece and we're going to go the low side of the zone connect it to the resistor clamp it down so we've got our connection and always resistor to the low side of the zone or label gnd here and then our high side is going to go to z2 so we've got our zone two connected ready to do zone 3 which on our list was back windows so we've got our zone 3 and cut off our old resistor connect to our smaller 3k resistor to our low side got our connector splice matching our black wire or low side of his own to the resistor clamp it down and we're going to connect this to zone three we can clean these wires up and hold on to our tools so we're going to land on zone 3 zone 3 actually shares a comment or a low side with zone four so we have a gnd that we're going to land our resistor then our high side of our zone we're going to connect to zone three we've got zone 3 connected zone for is our french doors try to find that one here we go and again snipping off our old resistor strip our wire a little bit with its struct make our connector to our resistor again the smaller 3k value resistor connected to our low side of the zone or black wire you connect this here crimp it down makes our connection nice and tight and we're going to land this to zone for feed it up and under and send sound for is a shared common with zone three we're going to use this same terminal that we have zone three connected on feed the wire up and in let's see there we go we got both our comments for his own 3 in zone four and then we're landing zone for to the screw terminal labeled z4 nice and tight good to go zone 5 is our sliding door and we actually had a sliding door upstairs and a sliding door downstairs our old panel did not designate one from the other with their zone descriptions so we want to make sure this is our zone 9 sliding door that's not the one we want we want our downstairs slider which is zone 5 which is right here it's a double slider so there's two loops in series and there we go we're going to snip off our old resistor and strip our wire that's why I does not want to strip very well see if we get this sheet off okay take our three k resistor quickly using up our eight-year again low side with the resistor crimp it down got our connection and we've got our two sides of the door connected in series here we're going to put our zone 5 low side to gnd in between zone 5 zone 6 it's going to share a common just like three and four did we're going to take our zone five land it on the terminal labeled z5 and good to go on zone 5 all right zone 6 we have back bathroom this is our downstairs bathroom door leading out to the outside they happen to have run interestingly enough there resistor on their red wire for their old job which really doesn't matter the color is not important it's more important to have the resistor on the proper terminal that you're landing it to so we're just going to strip off this red sheet here and keep things consistent we're going to use the black side with our three ka resistor we have not used any of our highs owns yet we're still on our our bottom half of our zone doubling not until we get up to zone 10 will we start into the zone doubling so we've got our black and our resistor press down nice and tight going to feed this through this mess of wires and we've got our zone 6 so again we're sharing a common here with zone 5 so you'll have two resistors land it under there just like we did with 3 and 4 5 and 6 share a common wire it in and then zone 6 zone 6 is done alright zone 7 and we have actually that last one can't read my writing that was the back bedroom so now we're going to do our bathroom downstairs or bathroom bottom zone 70 take it back I was right in the original time that was our bathroom so now we have our zone 7 which is our downstairs bedroom they've gone back to using the resistor on the black side snip off their old resistor strip the wire get our connector to our resistor down to our last two resistors here for our low 3k bottom half of our zone doubling slide in the black wire with the resistor crimp down nice tight connection and we're going to land for zone 7 first to fish this through and we're going to go z7 is going to get our high wire our red wire and then our G and D or rather our low side is going to go to our G and D which is another shared terminal zone 8 and we've got zone 7 okay with zone 7 up we're left with zone 8 which is our last bottom half one that's our garage door see if we can locate that one I think it's this one right here zone 8 yep cut off our resistor splice our wire connect our resistor to our low side and this is our last three k resistor all the rest of our resistors we're going to use the 6.2 s for our top half of our zone doubling so or essentially halfway there get this connected in crimp down and connected sharing our ground with our previous is own seven feed this up and under and we're going to land our resistor share it along with that one nice and tight and then zone 8 go into there so now we've got our zones 1 through 8 and we are left with six more zones 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 more zones and I'm sorry 66 more zones our next one is our window upstairs I master bedroom windows see if we can locate that one okay this is our window up okay so we've got our zone 10 and this one happens to have come loose when we pulled all our wires out originally so we're going to show you here I'm going to take one of our connectors these are our two two separate loops zone 10 is our master bedroom windows there's two of the windows and because our original installation or an original installer home run each contact we're going to run an inn series so we're going to match black and red crimp that down so now we're left with a red and then our old resistor you're going to cut off strip the wire and this is going to be our first zone double we're going to take our 6.2 k resistor land it in series along with our black wire and then crimp it down okay that's connected and this is the tricky part so we've got our eight zones we've run out of zones on the panel you can add at 4219 zone expansion board if you would like or you're going to zone double which is what we've been setting up for so zone 2 is also going to be zone 10 hour zone 2 is already connected with our local 03 point or a rather 3k resistor so all we do is run our zones in parallel using the same exist existing zone so our zone 2 was a ground and Izzy too so we're going to slide this resistor up in parallel along with our zone 2 resistor they both fit underneath screw it down and then we take our positive side and where we only had one wire for each positive we're now going to land a second positive wire so we've just added zone 10 in there along with zone 2 and when the master bedroom windows go off the system will see that the 6.2 resistor value changed know that it was that zone so it's a handy way to be able to use additional zones on the panel so we've got zone time now we've got zone 11 which is labeled bath up which is this one cut off our resistor strip our wire connect our black wire to our 6.2 k resistor cramp it down and same idea as before wireless terminals are starting to fill up here but we've got zone 3 is now going to be our zone zone 12 also we've already got two resistors under the gnd because we shared a resistor with four so we're going to actually have a total of four in there now right now it's three that'll be our third and we're going to share the z3 and we're going to run zone 12 in parallel oops three came out that's okay we're just going to push them back both up in parallel and a little trickier here so we get more wires let's go be a little more dexterous got it under there screw it down nice and tight so you can see well maybe you can't but there are three resistors under their 14 zone 3 14 zone 4 and now 14 zone 12 zone 13 is our bedroom that skips don't 12 zone 12 is all wrong 12 oh nine so Nate some two and three I was only four matches two is ten threes 11 4 is 12 so in my pace to connect these because own one doesn't share because set up as a fire you can zone devil's own one I forgot zone nine which would have been shared with one so we're just going to use zone nine here and connect it in with zone for which would end up being shared zone 12 so I've probably been saying the wrong numbers and we can certainly once we get everything connected to fix our zone list we haven't programmed anything yet so it's really not relevant which zone is where as long as we understand so important part is snip off the old resistor stripper wire get our wire connected to our resistor 6.2 k resistor we've got our black wire connected to our resistor with our little beanie connector oh and I missed on that one snip my resistor luckily I have plenty of beanies here try that again feed the wire up and in we're going to use the longer side here get a nice tight connection just I'm making sure that both wires are up and in there connect it in so this is our master bedroom sliding doors and there's again it's a double slider I've got two loops running series we're going to land our negative it's going to be shared in with this one that we've been working on this ground in between zone three and zone for going to slide it up in there with those this is actually our fourth resistor on this one to show how these two zones are actually used along with four zones and stood doubling and our z4 we're going to run in parallel here which o our wire just broke here let's strip that down a little bit get a little more copper connector try that again okay piece of wire fell out push that back up and in twists it down so we've got our zone for shared with our zone 12 to 10 so zone 2 and 10 zone 3 and 11 zone 4 and 12 that leaves us with still needing to double some more so we've got 12 2 i'm sorry take that back so zone 2 is shared with zone 9 zone 3 is with 10 zone 4 is that 11 and zone 5 is going to be with 12 cut off our resistor strip our wire connect in our new resistor 6.2 k value clamp it down so we're going to strip our wire get our connector oops making sure that both wires are as deep as possible in there and clamp it down nice and tight and so we are sharing our zone 5 here so zone 12 5 and 12 is the zone pair the zone doubling pair feed this wire up and in and five is sharing the ground with z6 so we're going to land our resistor under the gnd terminal in between z 5 + z 6 and again we've already got two under there four five and six this is going to be our third and our zone 13 once we get to there is also going to go under there for now we're going to land our zone 12 in parallel with our z5 get it nice and tight into there and clamp it down screw it down so we're almost done we've got six and seven that need to be doubled we've got our zone 13 which is going to go with six in our zone 14 which is going to go with seven snip our resistor strip our wire connect our black side of our zone with our resistor 6.2 k value drop my beanie connector I still have a few more of yours so no worries feed our black in here along with our resistor clamp it down making sure it's nice and tight which it is and we are going to be putting our fourth resistor up under this gnd in between z 5 & z 6 which is reflecting our zone 5 hour zone six hour zone 12 and now finally our zone 13 and these screw terminals are designed to take multiple wires just make sure they're nice and tight and then our positive side we're going to run in parallel along with our matching zone 64 zone doubling pair of six and 13 okay nice and tight and finally we have our zone 14 this is an upstairs bedroom that wasn't labeled it was just labeled straight zone 14 we're going to be able to show you what the Honeywell system we're going to name it upstairs bedroom but this is going to be sharing with zone 7 for our final zone which is zone 14 we do have room if we had an additional zone to do one more ozone 15 but since this system didn't have his own 15 we're not going to share anything with zone 8 so zone able live by itself so we feed our resistor and with our low side of our zone or our black wire we clamp down and we are going to share zone seven and eight share a common this gnd terminal in between z8 and z 7 so that's why there's already two in there our zone 7 and our zone 8 and now we're going to slide in our zone 14 and then lastly our zone 7 we're going to run in parallel with our last zone 14 red wire and we have now connected all of our zones so to recap oh and I got a loose one always good to check your connections when you're done let's go ahead and tighten that in perhaps I need to move this wire a little over to the other side I want to make sure these connections are good otherwise you're troubleshooting once you power up you'll have zone faults so let's make sure we got this right in advance of course these wires with all these connectors in here it's a little bit harder to work with but if we loosen up our wire gives us a little bit of room to slide it in and then nice and tight and if we just give a quick little tug we want to make sure that we don't have any loose connections and we do not so we're get to go now so to recap zone 1 is 2 Z 1 plus Z 1 negative we only have one zone there and we're using our 2k resistor which is our standard resistor zone one again is set up as a fire zone so acts a little different than the rest of the zones we have no fire on this panel but you cannot zone double on zone one so we are not using anything but one zone their zone too we are running two zones in parallel zone to end zone nine your landing your low side of your zone with two different resistor values 133 k 16.2 k it's always the lower value of the resistor matches the low zone pairing so to in nine pair to gets the 3k nine gets the 6.2 k resistor you run your high side of your red wire in parallel on the z2 terminal z3 shares with 10 so we've got XIII and z10 positive wires run in parallel sharing the terminal screw labeled XIII and then we've got our three k resistor matching with ozone three on the black wire the low side we've got our 6.2 k resistor shared with our zone 10 black wire under there this gnd our common terminal here or a low side of our terminal 4 zone 3 is also for zone four so four shares with 11 so we've got z4 and z11 wires high side running parallel here on our z4 we've got our three point or our three k resistor matched with zone for our 6.2 k resistor match with zone 11 next one over we have z5 and z12 we have our three k resistor with our zone 5 our 6.2 k resistor match with our zone 12 next one over Izzy six we have z6 zone 6 in zone 13 running parallel to z 6 and we've got our three k max with our zone 6 and our 6.2 k resistor matched with our zone 13 finally we're getting close to finally we have his own seven match with zone 14 running parallel to z seven we've got our 3k match with our zone 73 k resistor on the low side under the gnd terminal our 6.2 chalo side matched with our zone 14 which is given us 7 and 14 here and then finally zone 8 because we do not have a fizz own 15 is our last action there run together just one one's own on zone 8 fit all these wires in and we'll get our panel door and pretty much we're good to go at the panel we do still need to add our gsm which will show in a minute attach our battery power up but that's after we go get our gsm board so for now that's our quick lesson on zone doubling you guys have any questions please let us know leave a comments in the section below because own doubling can be tricky of course you can always give us a call eight eight eight eight one eight seven seven to eight we will be back to show you adding the snap on vista gsm v 4g or vista I'm sorry Vista dash gsm 4g snap on cellular card that goes right here so i'll be back in a bit
