Wireless accesories to Vista 21ip

Hello everyone,

I have all my Vista 21ip wired. I would like to add 5 wireless glassbreak sensors.

What do I need to make it to work ?

Each sensor will be in different rooms so I guess I would need some transmitters ?

How do them communicate with the panel ? I guess almost one device must be wired to the panel ?

Regards

Do you have a wireless receiver? Without that, the wireless devices don't do much...

Hi MrROnFL, no that's what I mean .. what do I need ?

In these systems what acts as the receiver ? I've been looking 5881ENH - Ademco Wireless Receiver and read that it works flawless ...

Also, I saw this 5883H - Ademco Wireless Transceiver that combines 5881ENH receiver and 5800TM Transmission module.

What would be the major difference ? Do I need just a receiver or a receiver and transmission module is a must ? What are the other transmitters like the 5816 - Ademco 2 Point Wireless Transmitter ? or the 5815 - Honeywell Wireless Door Window Transmitter ? Will I need a Wireless Repeater Module ?

Let's say I have 5 windows (different rooms) and I want to install 5 glass break wireless detectors on each on my full wired Vista 21ip.

What is the best recommendation of the accessories needed ?

Regards

You need either the 5881 or the 5883. As long as you have no plans to use bi-directional devices (wireless keypads, certain keyfob models), you can go with the cheaper 5881. Get the H, version, that way you futureproof yourself.

The 5816 is their standard workhorse door/window contact. Unless your house is _very_ large, the basic receiver has plenty of range, and you won't need a repeater.

The receiver wires to the system just like one of the keypads. You also need an full alpha keypad (6160 or equivalent) if you don't already have one. The fixed alpha keypad (only shows zones as a 2 digit number), cannot access the menu system to add new devices.

Stupid question -- Is the 5883H what would be needed to 'talk' to all the wireless contact switches, glass break sensors etc.? This same piece would be used to talk with a wireless keypad?

In a word, yup, that's the correct device.
