I Need sugestions


I write because I am a little hesitant. I worked for several companies in Puerto Rico as a security alarm installer, most were Honeywell LinxR2. So I have one in my house but without monitoring. Now I would like to know several things to buy a system for my mom's house.

Searching the internet and talking with colleagues I met. they indicated me that the honeywell Vista 20p is a better panel with better capabilities and how programming is very similar to LinxR2, although the installation varied a bit. I also indicated that I could buy a module called "EVL-3 - Envisalink Internet Alert Module" and this would make a Vista 20p self monitor internet without the impulse of a company monitoring and monthly payments could be.
Anyone here know if this module works?
have used it before?
It is user friendly to setup?

Another thing is, there is still that the 5881EN Wireless Receiver,
what is the purpose of this module?
for what is this?
is it necessary?

my questions are directed to the information I'm looking to buy everything and program it into my house and change the old Linx I have, for a newer system and also be able to buy everything to program it into my mother's house.

Thank you

The Lynx panels use the same programming methods as the larger Vista p

The envisalink system is pretty popular, and works well.

The 5881 is the wireless receiver. Remember, the Vista 20p is a hardwired system, so there's more infrastructure wiring required.
