Honeywell VISTA: Program *29, Long Range Radio

Honeywell VISTA: Program *29, Long Range Radio


Hi, DIYers. This is Frank at Alarm Grid
again, here in the Alarm Grid video lab. We’re working again with the
6160RF and the VISTA-21iP system. Today we’re going
to show you how to enable and disable the
long range radio on your Vista panel. This will also– this will also
work with your VISTA-15P 20P. So what we’d like to do
here is show you both how to enable an internet– the
internet module that’s built into the panel, and disable it. So let’s say you
have monitoring, or you plan on
setting up monitoring, and you’ve already made your
connection to the internet. You can go ahead and enable
this just before your activation or during your activation call. If you do not plan
on getting monitoring and you’d like to disable
your long range radio, you can go ahead
and do that as well. So what we’re going to do is
get into programming first. So were using the 6160RF keypad. We’ll use the default
installer code, which is 4112. followed by 800, that’ll get
us right into programming here. It’ll show installer code 20. What we’re going to
do now is enter *29. That’ll get us into where
it says, Enable IP GSM. So this is your long
range radio setting. By default, this
is disabled, OK? So out of the box this
key pad will show zero for it being disabled. If you wanted to enable it
so that your system dials out and uses the internet module
or the backup VISTA GSM 4G cellular unit, then you would
enter a 1 here, and then star, and that would lock in
the fact that you’re using IP or GSM module. And then it’s going to
give you three selections. So generally speaking you would
just hit zero to quit out. OK. And we’ll do that
here for today. And that would
simply– and then star followed by that to get
back to the main menu of the programming. What we just did is we
enabled the internet and GSM communication modules, the
internal devices on the 21iP. If you would like to disable
it we would go in and hit *29. And instead of a
1, we’ll hit a 0*. And then we’ll enter–
once you 0* to disable it, it actually bounces you
right out of that submenu, the *29 submenu, and puts you
back into the main programming mode where you can
then exit programming. So that would be just
*99 to exit programming. OK. Now if you wanted to change–
go into deeper level *29 fields, we usually don’t recommend doing
that unless you’re a skilled installer. We also offer free tech support. You can email us at
[email protected] if you have any
further questions about enabling or disabling
your long range radio. Whether it be an internet
connection to your 21iP or even an external communicator on
something like a 15 or 20P, this would be the same
programming where you would go into *29, hit 1*, and then
0* to enable that setting. 0*, and then 0* to
disable the settings. So if you have any
further questions on that you can email us at
[email protected] And please don’t forget to

  1. I have a couple ademco panels (20P and 132FBP) that after a lighting storm the panel and the gsm communicator won't talk to each other. I do get signals from the communicator itself to central station (tamper, loss of radio sup, etc) but nothing from the panel. I have tried to contact honeywell tech support with not luck. Everything else on panel and gsm communicator seemed to be working fine, I wonder if somehow the *29 option went back to disabled? I will need to try this next time. I hope you can give some feedback about this. Thanks!
