How Do I Get Into Programming On My PROA7 or PROA7PLUS?
To get into programming on a PROA7 or PROA7PLUS, use the Hamburger Menu from the main screen. This is the three horizontal line icon in the bottom center of the screen. From there, choose Tools and enter the Installer Code (default 4112) when prompted. Finally, choose Programming from the available options.
Using the Installer Tools Menu you can complete the initial setup or edit the panel configuration when the need arises. Access the Installer Programming on a PROA7 or PROA7PLUS with the Installer Pin or Code. Navigate to the Tools Menu and enter the Installer's Pin when prompted. Then you can make any desired changes.
Resideo's ProSeries alarm panels include the Honeywell Home PROA7PLUS, Resideo PROA7PLUSC, Honeywell Home PROA7, and the Resideo PROA7C. The difference between the Honeywell Home vs the Resideo panels is really just the labeling on the front. The FAQ you're reading now specifically mentions the Honeywell Home PROA7, and Honeywell Home PROA7PLUS. But, the steps in this FAQ also apply to the Resideo PROA7C and Resideo PROA7PLUSC.
The biggest difference between the PLUS and Non-PLUS versions of these panels is that the PLUS versions come with built-in WIFI and Z-Wave. The non-PLUS versions require an add-on module to incorporate those features. There are other differences, which we dig further into in this article.
To access the Installer Menu on the ProSeries panels, follow the below steps:
1. Tap Menu Icon. On the home screen you will see a 3-lined hamburger menu icon at the bottom middle of the screen. Tap this to access the panel menus.
2. Tap Tools Option. On the left side of the screen, scroll down and tap on Tools.
3. Enter Pin. Enter the Installer's Code or Pin to continue. If an incorrect pin is entered, it will clear to allow entry of the correct pin.
4. Tap Programming. Select the Programming option. Next, you will see a message indicating that you're entering programming. Notice the right status LED begins to alternate red and green flashing. This indicates the system is in programming mode.
5. Make Edits. While in programming there are many options. It's always a good idea to only change the options that you have a clear understanding about. If you're not sure, you can refer to the PROA7 & PROA7PLUS Installation and Setup Guide, or ask a professional for assistance. Below is a drill-down of the main and secondary menu options.

The installer menu allows you to configure the panel the way you would like. If you changed the Installer Code, please make sure it is something you will remember. We recommend keeping it at its default value of 4112. There is little to no issue with keeping it set as the default value. The Installer Code cannot disarm the system unless it is the code that was used to arm it. If your system is actively monitored, then your dealer can assist you in gaining access to your system and/or setting the Installer Code back to the default value. Otherwise, if you change the Installer Code and then forget it, you won't be able to log into the Tools menu or access panel programming.
