How Do I Add a Honeywell 5828 to a LYNX Touch?
You can add a Honeywell 5828 to a LYNX Touch by setting the House ID for the keypad and setting its System Type to 2 for LYNX. These tasks can be done by accessing programming for the 5828 Keypad. To access keypad programming, press and hold 1 and 3 on the 5828 Keypad for five seconds.
Please note that the process for pairing the 5828 Keypad is the same as the 5828V Keypad. This is the same keypad, but with a voice feature. Complete the following steps to add a Honeywell 5828 to a LYNX Touch:
1. Set the panel House ID. In order to pair the 5828 with the LYNX Touch, both the panel and the keypad must have the same House ID. If the House ID for the LYNX Touch System hasn't been set, you will want to set it first. Follow the steps outlined in this FAQ to set the House ID for a Honeywell LYNX Touch System. It is recommended that you not use the default House ID of 10.
2. Access keypad programming. With the 5828 powered on, press and hold the 1 and 3 keys on the device for five seconds. The screen will alternate between "oo" and "--". This indicates that you have accessed programming.
3. Set the keypad House ID. Press 1 on the keypad. This will allow you to set the House ID for the keypad. The screen will alternate between "t1" and the current House ID. Enter in the same 2-digit House ID code that is assigned to the LYNX Touch Panel. Press * to confirm the setting. You will be taken back to the main programming screen.
4. Set the System Type. Press 2 on the keypad. This will allow you to set the System Type. This tells the keypad what type of alarm panel it is controlling. The screen will alternate between "t2" and the current System Type. Enter in "2" for LYNX. Then press * to confirm the setting. You will be taken back to the main programming screen.
5. Set the Exit Delay. The 5828 will sound during exit delay when the system is armed away. Press 3 on the 5828. The display will alternate between "t3" and the current entry. The amount of exit delay time is entered in 15 second increments, so if the panel has a 60 second exit delay, enter a 4 in question 3. If the panel has a 45 second exit delay, enter a 3 in question 3. Press * to confirm and return to the main programming screen.
6. Enable/disable Voice. Press 4, and the display will alternate between "t4" and the current entry. This option will only be available on the 5828V keypad. If you want to enable the keypad voice, select a 1, if you want the voice to be disabled, select a 0. Press * to confirm and return to the main programming screen.
7. Select wireless protocol. Press 5, and the display will alternate between "t5" and the current entry. For a Lynx Touch Panel, set this option to 2, then press * to confirm. You will once again be returned to the main programming screen.
8. Set function keys. Question 6 determines whether the function keys on the left side of the keypad will be used as Panic Keys or for Single Button Arming. Selecting 0 will make the function keys function as panic keys. Choosing a 1 will make the function keys behave as single button arming keys. Press * to confirm your entry.
9. Exit keypad programming. At the main programming screen, press the * key to exit programming. If you selected the option for single button arming in question 6, you must perform one more step for proper setup. In this step, you associate a valid user code with the keypad for purposes of single button arming. Press and hold the 7 and 9 keys at the same time until the display flashes "- -". Enter the desired valid 4-digit user code you would like to be associated with the keypad, then press *. Do not use the Installer Code. There will be no change in the display when the code is entered, so enter it carefully to avoid mistakes.
When the single button arming feature is used, it will log as having been armed by the 4-digit code entered here. If the code is removed from the panel or changed, this step will have to be performed again with a new 4-digit code in order for the single button arming feature to continue to work.
10. Test the keypad. Verify that the status shown on the keypad is correct. Attempt to arm and disarm using the 5828 keypad. If the single button arming feature has been enabled, press and hold either the Away or Stay button for 2 seconds. The system should arm if ready. Once it has been armed, enter a valid code + Off to disarm.
