Installation was easy. I powered down the panel and removed the batteries, then disconnected the original keypad. This didn't mount on the same back-panel / mounting plate as the 6160V it was replacing, but the back-panels had their screw holes in the same location, so I was able to re-use the same drywall anchors. The new keypad is wired to the ECP bus the exact same way as the original one, so that was a quick connection, re-using all the original wiring. Then I disconnected the original receiver (on a Vista 20P you can only have one receiver) and powered everything on. The default settings work as-is for being the primary keypad and receiver on a Vista 20P, but programming the keypad to double-check everything is quite simple (just hold two buttons at start-up - it's detailed in the included instructions).
At this point I haven't tried the Vista Intelligent Programming (VIP) as my panel does not have the required PROM. However, if you've programmed the Vista's before then you know the existing process is easy enough, but a bit cumbersome, so any improvement is welcome.
The only thing I miss is the voice from my 6160V. However, that's a lot less crucial than a good RF signal for my key fobs, and when I re-install the original 6160V upstairs, I'll have voice announcements from there.
RF model for future expansion. For the price point.difference... Get the RF one.
Using this with the newer VISTA panels made programming simple.
The keypad backlight allows you to see the panel in the dark and the backlight display (cool white LED) is very easy to read in any lighting condition.
