Honeywell 5839 User Guide
K0667 12/01 Rev. B
The 5839 is a wireless keypad that allows you to perform the same functions as you can from a wired keypad, as well as to display the status of your security system. The 5839 should be used as an auxiliary keypad in addition to one or more wired keypads. It should not be used as the only or primary keypad.
To access the keypad keys, simply open the swing-down door by applying outward pressure on the door release slot on the right side. See Figure 1. The 12 keypad keys are located behind the protective door and are continuously backlit for ease of use. See Figure 2. (Check the User’s Guide that accompanies the control panel for detailed instructions on the use of these keys.) The function keys include keys for panic alarm activation. The panic alarms are activated by pressing key pairs  & [,],  & [#], or [,] & [#], or a Special Function Key (see below). Whether these panic keys are functional and the type of panic alarms they produce, is determined by the control panel’s capability and programming. (Check with your installer for the availability and assignment of these panic keys.)
The keypad’s built-in sounder pulses for fire alarms and sounds continuously for burglary and audible panic alarms.
SPECIAL FUNCTION KEYS
These are four larger keys located to the left of the numeric keys (see Figure 2). The keys may be programmed by your installer for panic alarms or other special functions such as single-button arming. Special Function keys must be held down for at least 2 seconds to activate an alarm. (Check with your installer for the programmed function of these keys.)

To make sure the latest system status is displayed, press the [,] key before and after entering each command.
HOW TO GET SYSTEM STATUS Inactive Mode:
If the 5839 keypad is inactive (with a blank display), press any key (to activate), then press the [,] key to display present system status.
In the active mode (connected to a hardwired 9V power pack), the display continuously displays the present security system status. When the keypad is active and there is a change in system status (such as going from an ARMED STAY to DISARMED), it may take up to 20 seconds for the display to automatically update the status to show the status change. However, you can press the [,] key to update the display immediately.
FIRST PRESS ANY KEY TO PLACE KEYPAD INTO ACTIVE STATE.
HOW TO BYPASS A ZONE
When bypassing zones on this keypad, enter the bypass command for each zone separately as described in the control panel’s Installation and Setup Guide. Press the [,] key after each bypass command.
HOW TO REPLACE THE BATTERY Keypad wall-mounted: 1. Grasp the keypad firmly. Pull the top slightly forward, and then lift straight up and out to separate the keypad from the mounting plate. This exposes the battery compartment on the backside of the keypad. 2. Rest the keypad on a smooth surface and flip out the old battery. 3. Replace the old battery with a 9 Volt Ultralife Lithium battery (No. 465). Ensure that battery female (-) and male (+) terminals match the embossed battery symbol in the battery receptacle. 4. Reattach the keypad to its mounting plate by aligning the four mounting holes in the keypad case back with the four mounting clips on the mounting plate. Lower the keypad onto the clips. Anticipated battery life is 1.5 years. NOTES: The keypad must always be attached to its mounting plate. After replacing the battery and reattaching the keypad to the mounting plate, enter the 4-digit security code + OFF sequence twice to clear any trouble condition.
