Your are correct, a Vista-20P/21iP doesn't have a V-Plex polling loop. It uses 4219 Zone Expanders that connect to the Keypad buss terminals, and uses a completely different format than the V-Plex...

I don't disagree, ThisOldMan. However, I'll point out that the 5881/5882/6160RF also connects to the KP buss and I've personally witnessed times when the CP's response to a wireless device is...

Solo7777, it's hard to tell how that window switch is mounted in the window frame--screwed, double-stick tape, or glue; or is it just lying there unsecured? In any case, there should be a matching...

Powering a relay off the outlet was my thought too, but I'd do it a bit differently. I would plug in a low-voltage power supply, say 5V, 6V, or 12VDC to power a low-voltage "sensitive" relay; i.e.,...

Pete, a Vista-20P burg zone can't be programmed for "alarm on short" / "trouble on open" like a Bosch panel. I think he'll need to wire that loop pink wire (the thick one) in your diagram to Alarm NC...
