Can you use a 6150 keypad to program a Honeywell alarm system?

A Honeywell 6150 is a fixed English alarm keypad, meaning it can only provide certain words and numbers as feedback. You can perform most programming features using a Honeywell 6150 keypad, and the keypad itself will allow you access to all of the programming menus. However, it is not recommended to program certain features or your Honeywell alarm control panel with the 6150, such as zone programming, relay programming, or any feature that requires access to a sub-menu. The 6150 cannot provide the feedback to let you know where in the *56 zone programming menu mode you are and therefore, if you press one incorrect button, you can very easily become lost in the programming mode. Once you are lost you can inadvertently alter the security system's programming in ways you do not expect. This can cause loss of programming data, accidental deactivated zones or features and other security risks. In order to prevent this, it is recommended to us an alphanumeric keypad to program Honeywell security systems such as the 6160 alarm keypad.

Thanks for the help. I will purchase a 6160 keypad and go from there.
As you have seen, the *56 options are not displayed when programming from a 6150 so it will be nearly impossible for you to re-program them using that keypad (especially since you don't even know what exactly was changed). Therefore, your best option is to get a 6160 keypad installed so that you can access the *56 menu mode properly.
I was using a 6150 and I got lost in the programming menu and have accidently deactivated two of my entry doors. Is it possible to activate them again using the 6150? Or do i have to purchase a 6160 so I can read through the options? What choices are available to me? I have two 6150 keypads and a Vista 15P.
Yup
