How do I change a Honeywell 5834-4 battery?
The Honeywell 5834-4 four button security key fob is powered by a replaceable Panasonic 3V CR2032 lithium battery (already inside) that is expected to last 3-5 years. Once the battery voltage drops to 2.3 volts, a low battery message will be displayed on your keypad, for each button zone programmed on the 5834-4, the next time any button is pressed. For instance, if your 5834-4 is programmed with all four buttons, you would get all four zones showing low battery upon the next press of any button, once the battery in the key fob goes low. If you have alarm monitoring service, the low battery message should also be transmitted to your central station so that you will be notified of the problem. You will typically have about thirty days to replace the battery before it drops below 2V and stops working completely. If your 5834-4 is indicating a low battery, please follow these step by step directions to replace the battery.
1. Open the back side of the key fob using a small Philips head screw driver.
2. Once opened, slide a small flat head screw driver underneath the battery on the gold tab side and pop the battery out.
3. Next, you will need to slide the new battery (+ side up) underneath the gold tab. Then firmly press down on the opposite side. It should click into place.
4. After double checking that the battery is positive side up and firmly positioned, and the back cover is popped back into place, you may screw the cover back down.
With a new 3V battery installed, you should be able to press the disarm button, then enter a disarm sequence (user code plus the OFF key) to clear the low battery messages from your alarm keypads.
