Wireless devices with Vista 20SE?

Can anyone verify if the following wireless devices are compatible with my 20SE?

5800Micra (wireless door/window transmitters)
5800Wave (wireless alarm sounder)
5853 (wireless galssbreak)

I just won a 6160rf on eBay and am trying to add some wireless devices to an existing ADT Safewatch Pro 2000.

Thanks

They are all listed as compatible with the 6160RF, however, they are neither listed as compatible nor _not_ compatible for the V20se. You takes your chances.

My gut instinct it that they will work (the 5800WAVE being the biggest wildcard) since the receiver matters more than the alarm panel for most functions.

Honeywell lists 5800WAVE as _not_ compatible with the 6150RF, but as compatible with the 6160RF.

Again, this item is a bit of a wild card. I wouldn't spend the cash unless it is a real deal. I've always found those wireless sounders to be of somewhat dubious value, in my opinion...

Many thanks for the info.
I'll see what I can find on eBay.
Unless someone has some 5800micra (3) and 5853 glassbreaks (3) for sale here.

Thanks again.

ATTN - MrRonFL or others.....

I just received my 6160rf today and plan to install it this weekend to my Safewatch 2000 Pro (Vista20se).

From what I can understand of the manuals, I need to do the following:

Hardwire the 6160rf to the control
Power down AC and battery backup
Power up battery backup and AC (note order)
Within 50 seconds, and on the 6160rf keypad, press 1 and 3 keys simultaneously
Enter 31 to set the new keypad to non-addressable
Press * to continue
Press 1 to enable the wireless reciever function (I have some 5800micras and a 5853 on the way)
Press * to continue

THIS IS WHERE I GET CONFUSED

At this point, I am supposed to set the Receiver Address.
I can't seem to locate this info on my Vista Programming Manual.

I have the choice of any 2-digit address between 00 and 30.
WHAT SHOULD I USE?

After entering the 2-digit Receiver Address,
Press * to continue
(House ID should be disabled since Receiver is enabled)

Press * to continue
Enter 0 to disable High Security Mode
Press * to continue
Press * to skip "Disable High Security Devices" and exit programming mode.

Once I get my wireless transmitters for the doors, windowns, glassbreakage, I am sure I'll add another post for more of your generous help !

Thanks in advance.
I feel like an idiot even with the manuals.

The correct address for a vista 20se receiver is 00 (see page 24 of the V20se installer manual). They kinda bury it in the text clutter.
