How Do I Enroll a Honeywell 5834-4 Key Fob on a Honeywell L3000 Alarm System?

You can enroll a Honeywell 5834-4 Key Fob on a Honeywell L3000 Alarm System by accessing Zone Programming and assigning each key fob input to its own individual key fob zone. If you are using four key fob inputs, then you will need to use four key fob zones on the Honeywell L3000.


When programming on a Honeywell L3000, you will want to know some of the most common programming fields. The chart below can help you:


Remember, each key fob input must be individually programmed to its own system zone. For our example, we will only cover the process for one key fob input. However, the process is very similar regardless of which input is being programmed. Just remember that the [*] key is used for moving to the next option, and the [#] key is used for backing to the previous option. It is recommended that you enroll the key fob inputs for Arm Away, Disarm, Arm Stay, Panic, in that exact order.

Complete the following steps to enroll a Honeywell 5834-4 Key Fob on a Honeywell L3000 Alarm System:

1. Access Zone Programming. Start from the main screen of the Honeywell L3000 with the system disarmed. Enter in [Installer Code] + [800]. Note that the default Installer Code is 4112. The panel should display "20 Installer Code" to indicate that panel programming has been accessed. Then press [*56] to enter Zone Programming.

2. Choose a zone. You must let the panel know which zone is being programmed. Key fob zones range from 26 thru 41. Since 26 is the first key fob zone, we will use that for our example. Enter in 26, and press [*] to continue.

3. Program the input. Go through each programming field, and provide the necessary information. Remember, you will use [*] to go to the next programming field. If you make a mistake, you can press [#] to go to the previous programming field. For our example, we will be programming the Arm Away function, which is commonly associated with the top-left button on the 5834-4.

For B Zone Type, set the function the input will serve. In our case, we will enter in the 2-digit Zone Type for Arm Away, which happens to be 21. Enter in [21]. The Panel will display "b21 Arm-Away". Then press the [*] key to continue. For reference, some of the most popular Zone Types for key fobs are "b21 Arm-Away", "b22 Disarm", "b23 Arm-Stay", "b06 24-Hour Silent", "b07 24-Hour Audible", and "b08 24-Hour Auxiliary". For a list of all Zone Types, please review Page 10 of the Honeywell L3000 Programming Guide.

For C Report Code, enter in [0000]. Then press [*] to continue. You will do this for all key fob inputs.

For D Input Type, enter [5] for "BR Button Type". Then press [*] to continue.

For E Loop#/Auto-Learn, take the 5834-4 Key Fob and press and hold the input you are enrolling for two full seconds. Then do this a second time. The panel will beep twice, and the letter "L" for Learned will appear on the screen to confirm that it has auto-learned the key fob input. You can then press the [*] key to continue. For our example, we are programming for Arm Away, so we will use the upper-left button, which is the picture of the lock. When programming for other key fob inputs, you will press and hold that respective input instead. Please note that the Loop Number is associated with which key fob input you are programming.

For 1AL Serial Number, press and hold the same input you programmed in the previous step. The panel will beep three times to verify that the key fob was programmed correctly, and the letter "C" will be displayed for confirmation. Press [*] to continue.

For 1C Zone Descriptor, just press [*].

After that, the panel will automatically move to the next available Zone Number in the sequence.

4. Program for other inputs. Go through and complete the process for the other key fob inputs. The only fields that will really change are A Zone Number, B Zone Type, and E Loop#/Auto-Learn. Everything else will be exactly the same. Just remember that [*] proceeds to the next option, and [#] proceeds to the previous option. In addition to the four single-button 5834-4 inputs, you can also enroll four additional 5834-4 inputs through dual-button presses. This is outlined in the diagram below:


5. Exit and test. When you get to an A Zone Number field, enter in [00]. This will exit Zone Programming. Then press [*99] to exit panel programming entirely. Finally, test each key fob input to make sure it works properly. If you can control the system using the key fob, then it was enrolled successfully.
