Honeywell 5828V vs 5828
The Honeywell 5828V Keypad and the Honeywell 5828 Keypad are essentially the same device. The only difference is that the 5828V comes with a voice feature. This allows the 5828V to announce the zone descriptors of any zone that has faulted. The 5828V can also record voice messages.
Both the 5828V and the 5828 are used to provide a secondary point of access for a Honeywell Lynx Touch panel or a Honeywell Vista system. This is helpful for users who want to arm or disarm their panel or check the current status of their security system from another location inside their home or business.
For example, a user might have their Lynx Touch panel by their front door and a 5828V or 5828 by their back door. This will allow them to easily disarm their panel if they ever enter from the back door. Another option is to put the secondary keypad by the front door and the Lynx Touch system hidden away somewhere in the house. This will prevent an intruder from destroying the main panel, since they will most likely believe that the 5828V or 5828 is the primary system.
One limitation of the 5828V and the 5828 is that they only feature a signal range of 50 feet away from the receiver or security panel, regardless of whether it is a Lynx or a Vista. This is because of strict FCC regulations that limit the transmission range of devices that send and receive important data from a security system. However, this range can be doubled using a 5800RP Wireless Repeater.
The only major difference between the 5828V and the 5828 is that the 5828V includes a built-in voice feature. When a zone is faulted, the 5828V will read aloud the zone descriptors of the affected zone, when enabled. Meanwhile, the 5828 will only produce a generic chime when a zone is faulted. The 5828V will also announce armed status, and alarm messages. Additionally, the 5828V can also be used to record a voice message that can be played back later. This can be useful for leaving a message or instructions for your family or coworkers who will access the panel later. The 5828 does not have this capability.
