Just installed Vista 20P with a 6160RF keypad.

When I try to arm the system "AWAY"; after delay for exiting, it displays that it is armed "STAY'. Tried this 4 times, being extra careful to press the right keys and it still results in a display that indicates "STAY".

Can anybody tell me what I've done wrong?

No help needed now - figured it out.

*84 Auto Stay Arm says the system automatically changes from an AWAY to a STAY mode if an entry/exit door is not opened and closed within the exit delay time FROM A WIRED KEYPAD (emphasis mine). Because system uses a 6160RF, I mistakenly assumed this to be a wireless keypad, not a wired keypad, and left the Auto Stay Arm enabled. Once *84 Auto Stay Arm was disabled (set to 0 = no) the system armed in the AWAY mode.

thanks for responding with the solution... maybe someone else may find that helpful one day

I used to do alarm panels many yrs ago ... your one wasn't familiar to me
we used to have a couple of alarm guys on the forums maybe they didn't get a chance to view your original post

cheers
