Ademco Vista 20-P and Smoke Detectors

What Smoke Detectorts are compatible with the Ademco Vista 20-P. I see alot out there that have 50P or higher. I just want one that is 2 or 4 wire and will work with my Ademco Vista 20-P.

Any 2 or 4 wire 12volt smoke will work. When you see a smoke detector compatiblity chart those are the smokes that when ul approved the panel those are the ones they used. So if you are going for a ul system for insurance puposes use one that is listed for this panel. Otherwise its your choice. I wont recommend a certain brand but try to get one from a well known manufactor

Thanks for the Reply

I will look for a ul and 12volt from Ademco. Didn't want to get one and have to return it over and over again until I found one that worked.

Thanks Again

I believe the ones they list are from system sensor. The 2 wires are a little more install friendly

System sensor smokes are all my company will use anymore.
If you use 2 wire smokes, they must go on zone 1 of the board, + on terminal 8, - on terminal 9.
If you use 4 wire smokes, they can go anywhere, including on zone expanders.
