I just got into hardwired alarms in April after only doing wireless but I'm loving can layout and finding ways to dress wire neatly in the can. I love it. This was an 8 zone Vista-20P with System Sensor Cosmod2W unit with GSMX4G. Battery not installed at this point.

I was doing a fire alarm testing at a new client.

I literally went crazy looking for the EOL.

Found the one after pulling the bell off the wall and the other behind a pull station.

Wish that place had it in the panel :)

After getting spoiled doing a few addressable systems, old analog ones are not quite the same.

The EOLR belongs at the end of line device in a fire system.

In a burg panel it should go at the end of the line but the panel can only tell alarm or not alarm. A burg panel will never give you a trouble because the devices are typically N/C. That is unless you use a DSC system and DEOL or a Bosch panel and define the point response as such.

That is not a DSC system. Those are Ademco panels. Give me a DSC any day over Ademco.
I recently sold (3) alarm jobs... so I decided to try Vista 20P..

They are a nightmare to just program the keypad... I gave up... returned them and bought DSC 1834 instead.. much better user friendly...

Really? I mean for most resi, 29, 36, 37, 54, 55, 56, 59, 91, and 189 are the only functions to touch. I love ademco.
