Vista 20P System

(Instructions will work on a Vista 10P & a Vista 15P system as well)

 

Changing your Master Code

If you want to change your master code

  1. Enter in your existing master code
  2. Then enter 802 and then your new master code
  3. Then your new master code again

Example: Your old master code was 1234, but you want to change your master code to 4321

Step 1: You would enter 1234

Step 2: You would enter 802

Step 3: Then you would enter your new code 4321

Step 4: and then finally 4321 again.

The system would then beep, confirming that your master code has been changed. You can then test your new code to make sure it allows you to arm and disarm your system.

Adding a Code

  1. Enter in your MasterCode
  2. Enter 803 (#8 Being the Code Button, #03 Being the User)
  3. Enter new Code

Example: You have a guest coming to your home and you do not want to give them your master code, so you would like to give them their own code. Your Master code is 4321 and you would like to give them a code of 5555.

Step1: You would enter your master code: 4321

Step 2: You would enter 803

Step 3: You would enter the new code: 5555

You will get a confirmation beep letting you know that your code has been added correctly.

Deleting a Code

  1. Enter in your Master Code
  2. Enter in 803
  3. Enter #0

Example: You have a guest leaving and no longer want them to have a code, so you choose to delete their code. Your master code is 4321 and your guest code was 5555.

  1. Enter in your master code: 4321
  2. Enter in 803
  3. Enter in #0

You will receive a confirmation beep to let you know that the code as been officially deleted.
