I inadvertently defaulted a Vista 20P panel with 30-some RF
transmitters, including one RF PIR and one RF smoke sensor. After
reprogramming I am confronted with the following problem: When I
violate a zone, that zone will show up on the keypad as open. When I
restore that zone, it still shows up as open. I violate a second,
third, etc zone, all those zones show up as open, but continue to show
open after closing the door or window. The only way to get rid of the
fault messages is to get in and out of installer programming. What am
I doing wrong?
The zones are programmed as contact ID. In *56 I am fairly certain as
to what to put in Zn, ZT, and P. I am a bit more shaky as to what to
put in RC, IN:, and L. For the latter three I put throughout RC = 10,
IN: = RF, and L = 1.
Any pointers would be much appreciated.
You're probably not giving the panel, receiver and points enough time to
Go in and out of programming once and then leave the system alone for a
while, then check points.
Vista stuff can be finicky that way.
If you are using the built in reed switch in the transmitter then you
have to program the zone to L2 not L1. "L" means (loop or
input ) Loop 1 is used when the contact is wired directly to the
terminals inside the transmitter with an external contact and magnet.
You must also re-enroll each transmitter again if you defaulted the
Smoke and motion detectors are loop 1
