AVS Audio Verification System
This guide explains how to install the AVS PC board assembly in a VISTA series residential control cabinet when using the AVS
addressable mode. Please refer to the control's Installation and Setup Guide and the instructions provided with this module for
detailed information, or if using a control not compatible with the AVS addressable mode.
Compatibility Note: When using addressable mode, the AVS is intended to work with controls having the following firmware versions:
VISTA-20P series = version 7.0 or higher; VISTA-21iP series = version 3.0 or higher; VISTA-15P series = version 6.0 or higher.
1. MOUNT THE ASSEMBLY
Refer to the diagram at right.
a. Position the mounting plate/PC board assembly in the bottom of the control's
b. Slide the mounting plate to the right so that the plate's left-hand tang slides under
the cabinet's tie-wrap loop.
c. Secure the assembly to the cabinet using the two self-tapping screws provided.
d. Mount the control's PC board if not already mounted; follow the control's instructions
for mounting the board (and optional RF Receiver board, if used).
BATTERY NOTE: When using a 7AH battery, mount the battery vertically on the
bottom left-hand side of the cabinet, with the terminals facing down and right
(negative terminal closest to the PC board bracket).
2. MAKE THE AVS WIRING CONNECTIONS
Refer to the diagram below.
AVS to Panel Wiring
a. ECP Connection:
IMPORTANT: The AVS should be the
only device connected to the control's
ECP terminals. Connect all other
control panel ECP devices to the AVS
ECP terminals. Make sure the current
drain of connected ECP devices does
not exceed the control's maximum.
Using the red, black, green and yellow
wires of the supplied harness,
connect the ECP terminals from the
control (ground, aux, data in, data out)
to the Panel terminals on the AVS
b. Phone Connection:
(use a Direct Connect cord)
• Connect red and green wires to the
control's Incoming phone terminals.
• Connect brown and gray wires to
the base unit's Handset terminals.
• Connect the control's Handset
terminals to the base unit's Incoming
Phone Line terminals.
AVS to Station Wiring
a . Mount the Station according to its
Connect the base unit's AAV terminals
to the station's AAV terminals, routing
the wires through a cabinet knockout
and through the opening in the
station's case or side cutout.
If connecting an adjacent keypad to
the station, connect the station's
Keypad header to the keypad's
AVS to GSMV4G/GSMX4G Module
If using a GSMV4G or GSMX4G
module for 2-way voice operation,
install the module according to its
instructions. NOTE: The module must
be mounted within 3 feet of the
Connect the audio cable (not
supplied) from the GSMV4G or
GSMX4G module to the Audio
connector on the AVS board.
Complete all other GSMV4G/
GSMX4G wiring following the
instructions included with that module.
Base Unit LED Functions
base unit is powered; normal mode
phone ringing for callback
Program mode: waiting for callback code entry
2-Way Voice mode

The AVST Remote Station must be
mounted a minimum of 12 feet (3.7m)
from the AVS Base Station and the
GSMV4G module's antenna. Using the
AVST at less than the minimum spacing
may cause undesired noise at the AVST
VOLUME / ID
VISTA-15P = 8
