hi di wires Joe her from alarm grid and today we're going to talk about how to program a 4219 to your Vista system now we have a new style 4219 set up and I'm going to go over this in just a second I just want to say a few things about the 42 19 s that are out there there are some older versions of it and one important thing that you may notice is that the tamper for the for the 42 19 may be a jumper instead of a dip switch as you can see on ours we have dip switches and our tamper is actually determined by dip switch number eight by flipping it up or down on an older model of this though you may not see that and you may see that actually as a jumper there are some other caveats with the older 4219 if you do have questions about yours or if yours looks different from the one that we have installed right here feel free to give us a call or head over to our website we have lots of information on it and we can help you get it working now what the 4219 is actually do is that on your Vista system you only have eight zones on the actual board for hardwired zones now the system can support more in programming it's just that you have to install the device to get the terminals to be able to land them on and program them into the system the 42:19 connects back to your Vista panel with a four wire connection pardon me it goes to the ECP bus and it works just like that and the way that you determine which zones this has been a work on is based on how you have your dip switches set you're gonna see in the installation manual that actually tells you which address this the address part of me which block of zones your dip switch setting will correspond to you want to go to your panel installation manual and it will actually see a legend that tells you each block in which zones it covers for example on address number seven that hits zones nine to sixteen so what that means is that and that's what I have this currently set to what that means is that in programming when this is on address number seven this is going to occupy the zone block 9 to 16 so as you'll and devices on your 4219 they will go from zones 9 10 11 12 and so on one cool thing about the 42:19 is that if you don't use all the zones in the block you can actually program the zones that are unused as wireless zones if you want so let's say install one of these and you only hit two of the terminals with zones you have six zones that are available that aren't being used by the 42:19 and you can't occupy those zone slots and programming with wireless zones it's very convenient to do now programming for the device is pretty easy all you have to do is in programming in your zone programming when you go to your zone setup you're gonna tell it to be a aux wire for the zone type that's going to tell the system oh there's a 42 19 connected and it's addressed properly I know that I can program this to work as a wired zone once you save that information it's gonna work as such and as long as you have your dip switches set properly to occupy the zone slot that you're programming it will come up and start working so now if we go to our panel we're gonna do some programming on our 6160 keypad as you can see it's on the main screen so we do have to jump into programming first we're going to enter our default code for one one two eight zero zero as you can see it says install our 20 we're an installer programming so now we have to go to zone programming to do that we have to hit star five six so star five six and this is the first screen that you're gonna see in zone programming set to confirm we don't want to so we're just going to hit star to continue there's already a zero in the field now as we have our 42:19 set to address number seven our first zone that it's gonna occupy is zone number nine so on our zone selection we're going to hit zero nine star and we're gonna go right into the zone programming screen this is the zone summary or the zone overview and as you can see there's nothing in there yet other than the default information so I'm gonna hit start a start zone type disabled currently let's make it an entry/exit door just for all intents and purposes hits star it's on partition number one which is what we want we're gonna hit star the report code I mean we don't have a central stage and connected list right now so it's not a huge deal but it's a good habit to do as long as you have a number one in the first field of your report code slot the zone and will report or send a report signal every time that something happens so we're gonna hit OK to confirm that and this is where we're going to tell it that it's coming off of a 42:19 now as this is zone number nine it cannot be on the panel as the panel is only zones number one through eight so this could either be a RF device or wireless device let's go 5816 or are there any other sensor or it could be a 4219 but we have to tell the panel that so as you can see currently it says RF transmitter that's the default it thinks that currently that we're going to program in a wireless device so we want to change that so if we hit two you'll see that it says aux wire as long as this says aux wire the system is going to think that there's a 42:19 connected that's addressed properly and that this zone is properly installed on it so that's cool we're going to hit star to continue and now we're at our zone summary screen it looks good so we'll hit star to confirm and now it's asking us to program the alpha the programming in the words for a zone is a real hassle on a business system you have to go into your manual find the the list of words program in the code number to make it work and you can certainly make it work but if you do have your system monitor to contact your alarm monitoring company as they'll be able to punch that in remotely for you and download it right to your system or at least there's a good chance that they can so we're going to do zero because we don't want to get into this right now and now we're program so if I do zero zero we'll go back to our zone overview or a programming overview and then we'll do star nine nine two back out to the main screen now we don't have anything installed on that particular zone but it is in programming and that's how you program in a 42 19 2 Vista system you did enjoy the video feel free to subscribe if you want to be
