    HELP! need help choosing a new security board for 40 zones

    Hey everyone, I currently have the 2GIG panel with only 8 zones wired. I need to expand my security panel for the 40 zones I have. It looks like I have a Vista 20P zones and a wireless take over module. Essentially what I'm doing is trying to redesign my media panel! Doing the work and understanding how it all works is not the issue. I'm a complete noob when it comes to what good control panels there are. Should I just keep the Vista 20P panel and add 4 8 zone expanders and add 4 more wireless take over modules. I'm trying to do this the cleanest possible without having 029302 gadgets in the media panel.

    Adding the 4 additional Takeover modules would be clean and easy if the hardwired zones are in that same media panel as your existing 8 zones

    One other option would be keep the Vista 20p and add the alarm.com SEM read more on this thread: http://www.2gigforum.com/content/150...ncement-Module

    So I would have to buy 4 Zone expanders and than an additional 4 wireless take over modules. Do they not make a control board where I don't have to add 4 additional expanders and than take over modules as well?

    Each of the 2GIG takeover Modules are good for 8 Zones , they do not make a control board, the Takeover Modules report to the 2gig panel via wireless you can check them out here

    Here is an Installation Video

    Right, I understand that. I currently have one control board (vista 20P) that only has 8 zones hooked up to it (expandable to 16 zones) That means I have 32 (if I don't double up my zones on my vista 20P) zones that will have no zone boards for the wires to go to. Unless you're telling me I can solely use 2GIG take over sensors to power and ground those additional 32 zones *using 4 additional take over modules* So to expand my 8 zones into the 40 that I would need. I would have to use my vista 20P, and expand that control board using 4 zone expanders (Honeywell 4219) and then I would also need to use the 4 take over modules as well to make them wireless for my 2GIG panel. What you're saying is I don't need to add any of those 4 Honeywell 4219 zone expanders?

    If your using a 2gig panel then all you need is one takeover module for every 8 zones the takeover will need seperate power and battery backup see the video, also no life safety zones like hardwired smokes or CO can be used with the takeover
