Security & Fire Protection Systems/Ademco Vista 20 with 6160 keypad

The IControl takeover module is an interface that wires in series between the keypad wires at the panel and the keypad screws. It's purpose is to send the data thats going to and from the keypads to a device that interfaces with the Internet allowing wireless devices like cameras to be added to your proprietary wired system. If your not interested in using an app to arm/disarm remotely, then it isn't necessary. Hope this helps.
