How to Wire the IGSMV4G to the Honeywell Vista 21IP Hardwired Security System

Before attempting to install the Honeywell IGSMV4G Dual path communicator into your Vista 21IP hardwired system please make sure to power down the system including your backup battery and your transformer. Once this has been completed make sure that you have watched our previous video which will show you how to move the jumper on your 21IP system to the proper position in order to allow for external communicators. The first thing your going to want to do is run the 22 gauge by 4 wire through the back of the panel and begin wiring up the panel first. Take the black wire which will be the ground wire and make sure that goes into terminal 4. The second wire will be the power wire which of course is red place this in terminal 5. The yellow wire will go to terminal 7 and green will go to terminal 6 these two are your data in and data out terminals. Now that these are in place lets take the opposite side of the 22 gauge by 4 wire and begin to wire up the IGSMV4G dual path communicator.

Continuing on lets start by wiring in the ground or the black wire which will go into terminal 4. Next will be the red wire or “power” which will go into terminal 3. Terminal 5 you will want to wire in the yellow wire and lastly 6 will be your green wire again both of these are data in and data out. With this being wired up now you are ready to plug in your K14138LF wire which is what connects the communicator to the backup battery. Just a fun fact terminal one and two are for you ac transformer if you decide to wire in that way. Also, keep in mind you should always follow along with your instructions while working with your alarm panel.

 Honeywell’s AlarmNet Vista-Series Wireless 4G Cellular Alarm Communicator

gsmx4g twitter sized

The Honeywell GSMX4G cellular alarm communicator is usually used in conjunction with the Honeywell Vista series wired alarm systems but, it can also be used with the Honeywell LYNX Plus L3000 wireless security system. Many people wonder what the main differences are between the GSMX4G vs the GSMV4G. The main differences between these two cellular communicators is the fact that the GSMX4G does not require its own power supply aka “transformer” as contrary to the GSMV4G which will require its own transformer for power. Though there is a way to wire the GSMV4G to your existing control panel’s transformer we would recommend using the GSMX4G if this is how you would like configure your system. The GSMX4G was created with a low current draw so it can be powered through the ecp terminals.

The GSMX4G comes with a threaded adapter so you can screw it into the top of the vista series alarm control can. All you would have to do is remove one of the knockouts located on the top right of the can and screw the GSMX4G into the designated area. This communicator is also compatible with multi-gsm platforms including 2g,3g,and 4g applications. This device will automatically select the best gsm network in your area. Best of all this communicator will still offer you all of the same features you have come to love from Honeywell’s total connect 2.o interactive alarm monitoring services.

 The 5800C2W convert wired to wireless security system by Honeywell Security


The 5800C2W enables retrofitting existing security systems by; converting their wired sensors to Honeywell’s 5800 series wireless technology, and replacing the existing control panel with a LYNX Touch or LYNX Plus series control. The 5800C2W also works with residential VISTA control panels equipped with a wireless RF receiver and keypad. It saves on installation costs, time and materials since there is no need to replace wired devices with individual transmitters. The calibration feature on the 5800C2W solves a frustrating problem, When converting hardwire to wireless zones, the first thing you need to do is find all the resistors. Many times resistors can be in the walls or buried in the window frame. Tried digging those out? Talk about labor! The 5800C2W has a one button calibration. Press it and forget about resistor issues.  It will automatically calibrate the value from 2k to 9k. Now that’s a labor saver!

5800C2W Keep-in-Mind Guidelines:

  • Since the existing control panel is being replaced, its security functions will be performed by the new LYNX or VISTA control panel.
  • The existing control panel can remain for the purpose of housing the backup battery. Further, the existing control panel can be powered down and the transformer unplugged.
  • The 5800C2W module will charge the battery. This is also a good time to replace the existing battery if needed.
  • At the existing control panel, tag and remove the sensor wires as they will now go to the 5800C2W. Up to nine [9] hardwired zones can be handled by each 5800C2W module.
  • DO NOT mount inside the control panel or other metal enclosure.
  • The integral battery cable fuse MUST be positioned inside the control panel enclosure. The fuse is not replaceable.
  • Before mounting permanently, conduct Go/No Go tests (see control’s instructions) to verify adequate signal strength, relocate if necessary.
  • If necessary, affix the SOC label to the inside cover.
