We bought a new home that is fully wired with motion detectors & door/window sensors through a Honeywell Smart Home Ademco Vista-15pSIA panel.
We want to self monitor and use cameras and other smart home features that we can control through a central avenue.
I purchased a Honeywell Tuxedo Touch Wifi controller TUXWIFIW,
and a SmartThings hub. We asked the guy that handled the wiring of our house if he knew how to install the Tuxedo panel and he said he did so he handled it. His definition of install meant that he could hook it up in place of the previous Honeywell security panel.

Under the 'Setup' icon on the main screen, only three icons are listed - System Info, System Setup, and Disp & Audio Setup. As I continue through the various levels, I don't ever find 'Automation' or 'IP Setup'.

There is no IP address listed on the panel so we know it isn't accessing any kind of internet connection. However, we accidentally set off an alarm from the upstairs Honeywell panel and I was able to turn it off from the Tuxedo panel.

What am I missing to not find any of the appropriate setup screens to get this connected wirelessly? We do not know how to use the security features of our system in any way.
