hi DRS joy from alarm grid and today we're going to be installing a Honeywell 60 to 90 w touchscreen keypad one of these guys right here to our Honeywell 128 we're going to do this all the way from the beginning of wiring to programming the keypad so the first thing we have to do is wire it up so right here I've already cut my hole in the sheet rock and I've put the backplate on the wall but you are going to want to do this if you are installing this device on the wall I put three screws in my backplate I leveled it it's nice and secure and ready for the keypad to be mounted I've also taken a four wire conductor or a four conductor wire and passed it through the hole in the back light and I also have it coming out through the hole behind my 128 Vista panel now I've already stripped my wire tips and I'm ready to install them on the terminals I have a hundred percent power down my Vista 128 I'll unplug the power and I undid the battery I did under the red part but I'm gonna do the black leads to just have them totally disconnected and we are totally powered down before you install anything especially a keypad you want to make sure to turn off your panel now the 128 this the the four wires that you're going to connect the keypad to or the four terminals it's a little different than a Vista P panel so if you're used to working on like this 215 P or a 20 P and you are moving up to a 128 make sure that you have your instruction manual in front of you and that you know where you're landing these wires if some of the stuff does change if we take a look you'll notice that terminal number six is our positive four power terminal number seven is our negative 4 power turbine Weber eight is our green data terminal number nine is our yellow data what I'm going to do is loosen up these terminals make room under these clamps and then insert my new wires up under each terminal and then tighten it down to make sure the connection is good so part of me if I get in the way of the camera I'm going to try to orient myself so you can see what's going on but I may be clumsy too much if you have some extra space on one side of the terminal you can slip the wire underneath there so that the clamp gets a nice even even a squash on top of them our nice even press now in this one this black wire is kind of moving all over so I'm going to take my time and pull it out I'm going to straighten the tip out and then reinsert and as I was doing that I actually pulled this one out which shows me that I have to make this connection a little more secure and you're going to notice this when you go to wire it's not going to be as easy and straightforward and clean as you may think take your time with it though and be patient and you'll get through your wiring it just takes a little bit of finger dexterity and a little bit of trial and error until you get it comfortable and where you want it to be so now I have my green put this on there and then my yellow so there we go now our wire is connected to our panel and both wires are securely set so we're ready to connect the keypad to the other side of the wire on the back of our keypad you're gonna notice that there's a legend right there on the top that says which terminals get which wire green negative positive yellow so green black red yellow so then over here I'm taking the other end of the wire that's connected to our panel and I'm going to connect it to our keypad so terminals are open and ready to go I'm going to put the yellow one in first now this process if you have two people it'll serve you well as one person can hold the keypad while the other person puts the wires and then screws but if you do do it by yourself again just take your time if you need to use a table to put the keypad on top of while you do your wiring really anything you need to do to get these wires in and connected is what you got to do so the red is the next one black is the next one and then we have green for the last evening a quick tug on the wires will show they're in place and secure and I found that my black is not just by doing that I was able to see that this was not connected that would have been a troubleshooting nightmare if I actually powered everything up so those type of steps that you take that can just confirm whether or not you've actually screwed the wires down are important to do so let me just loosen up this terminal will put the black wire back in and then I'll tighten it up so we're connected and ready to go to snap the keypad onto the back plate you just put it into the plate and then push down so I put it here it's upside down I have to spin it on the bottom of it you're going to notice there's a hole for a set screw this set screw looks like this and it comes with the screw pack for the keypad what it's used for is after we pop it onto the back plate on the bottom there's a place for that set screw and that'll keep from somebody pulling the keypad off of the back plate just an extra security layer for the keypad so we are wired up we're connected we have our keypad mounted on the wall and we're ready to power up so the next stage is we're going to do the programming for the keypad and then we're going to enable the device address in the actual panel let's check it out before continuing to the next step especially with the vista 128 you're gonna want to pick which a UI slot you want this keypad to occupy on a 128 we have to go into programming we have to pick the slot that we want and then program it to work as a slot for a touchscreen keypad and it's a good idea before you get in the weeds with that to figure out which number you want your aui to be on and to make sure that doesn't conflict with any other two devices that you have installed on your 128 a lot of times 128 do you support quite a few devices so figuring this out beforehand it's going to save you a lot of trouble what we're going to do first is we're going to power up our panel which is going to power up our keypad and then we're going to do some keypad programming to get it set up to look for that a UI address so on our panel I'm going to plug in my backup batteries and then I'm going to plug in the main transformer so our keypads booted up we have our language selector we have our operation mode and we have our ECP address right there this is going to be our keypad address so I'm gonna pick number 6 because I know that's open on our 128 and then I'm gonna hit the checkmark keypad it's gathering information from the panel as soon as it finishes doing this we can move to our next step so our keypad is booted up now and we're going to move to another keypad whenever you do install a touchscreen keypad on a Vista panel it is highly recommended that you also have an alphanumeric keypad connected this is because the alphanumeric keypad is going to be what you use to do your push button programming and it's the easiest way to do this type of programming we have a 6160 also connected to our 128 and this is where I'm going to do my programming so I have to go into programming and enable the device address for this keypad to work properly with the panel so to do this I've done to the installer code and then 8000 on the Vista 128 that's for one 408 one two three we have program mode star for fill pound for view what I'm going to enter is pound 93 zone programming we don't want that so at zero expert mode no report code programming nope alpha programming nope device programming that's the one we want so to confirm for that I'm going to hit the number one so now that we're inside of the vise programming we have to pick the device address for this keypad and as we picked keypad slot six we're going to enter 0 6 let's star and as you see it's not used so what I have to do is do 0 1 alpha console that's star console partition this is going to be the main partition that the keypad lives on and for today we're going to do partition number 1 I'll hit star sound option we really don't have to worry about a lot of these other options am I gonna go into them right now we'll just start through a UI this one we want to say yes because it is an advanced user interface its star after I finish the programming I'm going to do 0 0 to quit star quit menu mode one for yes and then star 99 to back out a hundred percent now that we've programmed our 60 to 90 W keypad through our 61 60 when it comes back up it showed just properly show the panel status and we should be able to arm and disarm from our new keypad great right on the top we have ready to arm down partition one and has our arm selection so let's try it arm a way and it's working I'm gonna disarm to cancel this one two three four and we disarmed it if you do have any questions about programming the 60 to 90 setting it up with a 128 or a Vista P panel or any other questions about this keypad as this is a complicated process and there's a whole bunch of different things going on
