Honeywell’s high capacity, feature-rich VISTA-21iP lets you deliver more value to your customers on each and every sale. The VISTA-21iP provides up to 48 zones of protection, an on-board IP connection, graphic keypad support and dual partitions. The VISTA-21iP gives you the ability to send alarm signals and upload/download via an Internet Protocol (IP), improving the speed at which information can be delivered to and from the control panel. When used with an optional AlarmNet® GSM that snaps right on the board, the VISTA-21iP can be installed in premises without TELCO lines – guaranteeing communication independent of any infrastructure. The panel’s installation advantages, innovative end-user benefits and robust system capacity make the value-priced VISTA-21iP an ideal choice for higher-end installations.
