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.
