  • Will this work for me?

    Hey All,

    I have a Vista 128FBP system in my house. I am not experienced with alarm systems at all but my goal here is to be able to arm/disarm the system from my phone. I could care less about self-monitoring, my alarm company does that for me. They told me they have no way for me to control it with my phone so now I am looking for this option. I would like to do it remotely, for example if I leave home and I forgot to arm the system.

    What all do I need to make this work? Will the AD2USB device work with the entire 128FBP and all of its zones/devices?

    missed this one.

    yes you can use this plugin with the ad2usb to connect to your 128. several other users have already done this with success.

    you will need either to use a browser on your phone, or hs touch

      You can also use Imperihome on your phone to control the panel.
      I have it setup and it works perfectly...
