Ademco home alarm systems include both wireless and hardwired setups. Hardwired systems require a more complicated installation but are not subject to interference with signal transmissions. Wireless systems, on the other hand, are much easier to set up, but there is a danger that signals could be disrupted by other wireless devices such as cellular phones or Wi-Fi setups. Ademco offers Vista hardwired alarm systems and LYNXR wireless systems. Available models include the Vista 10P, 15P and 20P products as well as LYNXRPK-2, LYNXR2-KT100 and LYNXRPK-3 wireless alarms.
Ademco Vista Alarms
Vista hardwired alarms from Ademco feature a variable-support control panel enclosed in a lockable metal box. Included as well with basic systems are a keypad, motion detector, 2 transmitters, 2-tone siren, rechargeable battery pack and magnetic door/window triggers. Vista alarms provide either 6 or 8 basic zones. Each system is expandable with additional monitoring modules for up to 48 zones with the 20P setup. All Vista alarms are wireless expandable, ethernet compatible and all but one feature X10 compatibility.
Ademco Wireless Alarms
The LYNXR lineup of wireless alarms feature a control panel that is also a speakerphone, keypad, 2-way voice system, dialer and siren in one.
