Can I Use a Honeywell 7847i with a Vista 10p?
Yes, there are certain Honeywell Vista 10p alarm systems that can use a Honeywell 7847i broadband internet communicator.
The revision number that your system must be is (Rev.1.2 and higher) and this system in conjunction with the Honeywell 7847i CANNOT utilize Total connect 2.0 it is too old of a panel for this feature. If you want to use TC 2.0 services and communicate via internet broadband you will have to upgrade to a newer panel such as Honeywell Vista 15p, Vista 20p or Vista 21ip.
If you are more worried about having your Vista 10p communicate via Wi-Fi/Internet Broadband and you don't want to completely swap out your Vista 10p control panel you will have the option to add an IPDATATEL BAT-WIFI alarm communicator. In order for the BAT-WIFI to be used in conjunction with your Honeywell Vista 10p wired security system, your panel must have a revision number of 2.6+.
This information can be found by opening the big brown metal box which is the main control panel, once you have this box opened look on the green motherboard for a metal heat sync with a large circular sticker where you can find the panel model and revision number.
