How Do I Connect a Honeywell Home PROA7PLUS to WIFI?
To connect a Honeywell Home PROA7PLUS to WIFI, select Menu, scroll down and tap Settings, then WIFI. At the prompt, enter the Installer or Master Code then choose WIFI Networks. Choose your SSID from the available options. Enter the correct password, then press Connect in the upper right.
There are a total of four (4) panels in the ProSeries lineup from Resideo and Honeywell Home. The Honeywell Home PROA7, and Honeywell Home PROA7PLUS, and the Resideo PROA7C and Resideo PROA7PLUSC. The steps outlined in this FAQ apply equally to all of these panels with a couple of exceptions. The Honeywell Home PROA7 and the Resideo PROA7C do not support WIFI from the factory. In order to connect either panel to a WIFI network, you must first install a WIFI module.
Both panels can support either the Honeywell Home PROWIFI, which is a WIFI only module, or they can support the Honeywell Home PROWIFIZW which supports both WIFI and Z-Wave Plus. The difference between the Honeywell Home version and the Resideo version of each panel is purely cosmetic, as you can read about in our previous blog post. Once a PROA7 or PROA7C has a WIFI module installed, the rest of the steps outlined here are exactly the same.
To connect a ProSeries panel to WIFI, follow these steps:
- Find the WIFI Settings. From the main screen where the security system status is displayed, choose the Menu icon at the bottom (≡) then scroll through the Menu items and find Settings. Tap settings, then WIFI. You will be prompted for a code, enter the Installer Code (default is 4112) or the Master Code (default is 1234). Then, from the WIFI screen, choose WIFI Networks.
Select your network. You should see your SSID displayed among the list of available networks. If you do not, press the refresh button in the upper right ( 🔄 ). This prompts the panel to request available networks again. If you still do not see your SSID, make sure that your router is broadcasting the SSID. While checking that setting, you can also verify that the router has DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) enabled. If you don't want to allow your router to broadcast the SSID, then press the back arrow in the upper left and select the option to Add Network Manually. You can also use WPS to join the panel to the network, but WPS is much less secure so if you have decided not to broadcast your SSID, you probably also don't want to use WPS.
Assuming that you ARE allowing the router to broadcast the SSID, you will see your Network Name populate in the list of available networks. Tap on it, then you'll be taken to the screen where you can enter the appropriate password. Enter your password, keeping in mind that it is cAse SEnSitiVe, then press Save. Once you have entered the password correctly and saved it, then press the Connect button in the upper right.
Assuming you ARE NOT allowing the router to broadcast the SSID, then you'll choose the option to Add Network Manually. Type in the proper SSID manually, then enter the password, making sure to observe proper case for all letters. Once both the SSID and password have been entered properly, press Save, then press the Connect button in the upper right.
- Receive confirmation. When the panel connects successfully to the network, you'll receive confirmation on the screen. It will show "Connected Networks" at the top of the screen, with your SSID displayed to the right. Press the Left Arrow in the upper left (<) to exit the WIFI and Settings menu and return to the Security Screen. Alternatively, you can press the Shield Icon in the lower right of any screen where it is displayed, and this will immediately return you to the Security Screen.
