When AC power is present, the VISTA-120 runs a brief
(13 seconds) battery test every 4 minutes (alternately,
the test can be for 1.5 seconds every 50 seconds) to
determine if there is a battery connected, and runs an
extended battery test every 24 hours to check on the
battery's condition. This presence test is conducted
whenever the system or a partition is disarmed.
The VISTA-120 may be programmed to automatically
transmit test reports to a central station at intervals
ranging from once per hour to once per 999 hours (field

Whenever the Test Mode is entered from a
keypad, the system performs a LCD Display
Test. This activates all LEDs and LCD dots
(that make up characters) for 2-3 seconds.
If the system includes Quest 2260SN PIRs,

This test causes the system to sound keypad beeps in
response to faults on zones for the purpose of allowing
proper zone operation to be checked without triggering
alarms. Note that while this test is active the system
will not trigger alarms for burglary and non-fire related
24-hour zones, but will trigger fire alarms. This test can
be activated only by the Installer, Master or Manager-
level users, by entering the corresponding security code
and pressing TEST while the burglary portion of the
system is disarmed.
When this test is first entered, the system activates the
alarm output for 3 seconds. The system sends a Start of
Walk-Test message to the central station. The keypad
displays "Burg Walk Test in Progress" and sounds a
single beep every 15 seconds while the test remains

Testing The System
If the VISTA-120 finds that the battery voltage is low
(less than approximately 11.5V, 10.8 in the VISTA-
120FR), it initiates a keypad "SYSTEM LOBAT"
display and a rapid keypad beeping sound. It also
sends a Low Battery report to the central station (if
programmed). The keypad is cleared by entering any
security code + OFF, and a Restore report is sent to the
central station if the situation has been corrected.
The system can be programmed to send the first report
at any time of the day, or on any day of the week (field

Each action should produce 3 beeps from the keypad.
Walk in front of any motion detectors. Listen for three
beeps when the detector senses movement. The keypad
displays the zone number and alpha descriptor while a
door or window remains open or while a detector
remains activated. The system automatically issues a
Zone 8 Glassbreak Detector Power Reset about 10
seconds after it finds a fault on this zone, to allow
faulted detectors to be reset.
To end this test, enter any security code and press OFF.

must be entered into the system's test memory. To do
this, enter [zone number] + [#]. To remove a zone
