How Do I Add Additional Keypads on a Honeywell L7000?

You can add additional keypads on a Honeywell L7000 by setting the keypad's House ID and System Type. The system can support either a Honeywell 5828 or Honeywell 5828V Keypad. Since these keypads do not require a system zone, there is no limit to the number of keypads that can be added.

Please note that the 5828 and 5828V are essentially the same Fixed English keypad. The only difference is that the 5828V includes added voice functionality. Their programming processes are largely the same. If you would like to add either keypad to a Honeywell L7000, complete the following steps:

1. Set system House ID. The House ID for the keypad must match the panel House ID. First you will set the panel House ID. You can do that by following this easy FAQ. The House ID is a two-digit code that can range from 01 to 31. Please note that the default system House ID is 10.

2. Access keypad programming. Now turn your attention to the 5828 or 5828V Keypad. Make sure the device is powered on. Press and hold the [1] and [3] keys for five seconds. The screen should alternate between "oo" and "--". If you see that screen, it means that the programming menu has been accessed.

3. Set keypad House ID. Press [1] on the keypad. The screen will alternative between "t1" and the current House ID setting. This indicates that you can now set the House ID. Enter the same two-digit House ID Code that you set in Step 1. So if you are using the default House ID code of 10, you will enter in [10]. Then press [*] to confirm.

4. Set the System Type. Press [2] on the keypad. The screen will alternate between "t2" and the current System Type. The L7000 is a LYNX Touch System that is associated with a System Type of 2. Enter in [2] to make that selection. Then confirm by pressing [*].

5. Set the Exit Delay. Press [3] on the keypad. The screen will alternate between "t3" and the current Exit Delay setting. This setting is configured in 15 second increments. So a selection of [1] will be 15 seconds, a selection of [2] will be 30 seconds, a selection of [3] will be 45 seconds, etc. The highest selection you can make is [9] for 135 seconds. Enter in the appropriate selection, and press [*] to confirm.

6. Adjust the voice setting. This step is only applicable if you are using a 5828V Voice Keypad. Press [4] to enter the voice programming field. The keypad will alternate between "t4" and the current selection. If you want voice to be enabled, enter [1]. If you want voice to be disabled, enter [0]. Then press [*] to confirm your selection.

7. Set the wireless protocol. Press [5] on the keypad. The screen will alternative between "t5" and the current wireless protocol setting. Since the L7000 is a LYNX Touch System, you will enter [2]. Then press [*] to confirm your selection.

8. Set the function keys. The function keys are found on the left side of the 5828 or 5828V Keypad. You can set how the system will respond when these buttons are pressed. Enter [6] on the keypad to enter into this programming field. The screen will alternate between "t6" and the current selection. A selection of [0] will have the function keys operate as panic keys. A selection of [1] will have the function keys perform as single-button arming keys. After making your selection, confirm by pressing [*].


9. Exit keypad programming. Press [*] on the keypad to exit keypad programming and save your selections.

10. Configure single button arming. If you set the "t6" function keys option to [1] for single button arming, then you will need to take an extra moment to configure this feature. If you set the option to [0] for panic keys, then you can skip this step. To configure single button arming, press and hold the [7] and [9] keys on the keypad at the same time. After five seconds, the keypad should begin flashing "--". Enter the 4-digit user code you would like to associate with the keypad. Make sure to be very careful when doing this. Then press [*] to confirm your selection. Whenever you use the keypad to arm or disarm, the command will be associated with that code.

11. Test the keypad. From the keypad, enter the command [Master Code] + [3]. The system should go into Arm Stay mode. Then enter the command [Master Code] + [1] on the keypad. The system should disarm. If you can arm and disarm using the keypad, then it was added successfully.
