Adding 6160RF and devices to Safewatch 3000

I have similar situation with a old Safewatch Pro 3000en (Vista 20P) which was installed by ADT The system has two keypads and three door sensors and a motion sensor. I am planning to add wireless sensors. I know installer code.

I bought one 6160RF and one 5853 after seeing this discussion. But now I do not know how to program. Can you help me with step by step instruction with programming? First how to program the 6160rf and control panel for that. Second how to add 5853.

Ok, first of all do you have the installer manual for a Vista 20p (which is what a SW 3000 is a rebranded clone of...)?

Start by reading through the manual and then we can help you with the parts that you are having trouble following...

I already have the manual. Currently I have two keypads (non alphanumeric) from ADT. I want to replace one by 6160RF. Then I want to use 5853.

lets see what I need for 6160RF first:

1) Can I find out from current keypad what is its address? Then I can use that for 6160RF. Or should I try 16 and 17 one by one?

2) Do I need to enable receiver in 6160RF?

3) What should be receiver address?

4) Do I need program House ID? I checked with #24. The control panel has 00 as house id. Do I need to program new house id to control panel?

5)what about others setting High security mode and high security devices?

Press 1 + 3 at the same time to display the current keypad address on a 6150.

The receiver address on a Vista 20p/SW 3000 should be 00

You only need a house id if you are using bi-directional devices, like wireless keypads.

No you don't need high security mode.

Please read through the *56 programming instructions. _Then_ we can help you with the parts you don't understand. There's no point to re-typing instructions that you already have in black and white...

I could only figure out Zone number, Input type and loop. I do not know what to type in other fields. I am stuck in between and do not know how to come out of programming mode. Help please.

If you do nothing, the programming mode will eventually time out without making any changes.

Just put ll for the report code (it's just an enabling code, and unless you are doing something weird, it doesn't make any difference).

The * key is essentially the enter key, and for most things you simply accept the default and move on. When you get to the part for entering the serial number, you can trip the device to transmit the serial number. Look at the instructions that came with the 5853, it tells you exactly how to transmit that particular device.

Once you step through all the steps and return to the zone number prompt, you enter 00 to go back to regular programming, and then *99 to exit programmig overall.

Try this programming condensed form: http://www.devconsecurity.com/pdf/Vista20p.pdf

There's less distracting info to keep the confusion down (see page 8).

MrRonFl,

Thank you very much. The new manual given by you is really helpful. I could successfully program the wireless sensors.
