How Do I Find the MAC/CRC on a Tuxedo Touch WIFI?
You can find the MAC/CRC on a Tuxedo Touch WIFI by accessing the System Information Menu. A user will need to provide this information to their alarm monitoring company in order to use their Tuxedo Touch WIFI Keypad with Total Connect 2.0. That is why the MAC and CRC are important.
The Tuxedo Touch WIFI serves as the Z-Wave controller for a Honeywell VISTA System. This device allows up to 232 different Z-Wave smart home devices to be used with the system. A user can control these devices through both the Tuxedo Touch WIFI Keypad and through Total Connect 2.0. Although a user does not need to provide the MAC and CRC codes for the Tuxedo Touch to create a TC2 account, they will need to provide this information to have remote control of any Z-Wave smart home devices. The user will typically provide this information to their alarm monitoring company when setting up their monitoring service or when adding a new Tuxedo Touch WIFI Keypad.
Please note that the MAC consists of 12 letters and numbers, with the first six usually representing a certain MAC-prefix. For many Tuxedo Touch WIFI devices, the prefix is 00:D0:2D, but this can very depending on when that particular model was manufactured.

3. Exit the menu. Press the picture of the house in the upper-left corner of the screen. This will exit the menu and return you to the home screen.
