How Do I Program a 5834-4 Key Fob to an L3000?

You can program a 5834-4 key fob to an L3000 through the programming menu of the panel. Following a set of key commands will allow you to individually program each button of the key fob. Each button on the key fob will be assigned to its own unique zone on the L3000 security system.

Complete the following steps to program a 5834-4 key fob to an L3000 system:

1. Enter zone programming. Enter the installer code on the keypad (the default code is 4112), followed by 800. After a few seconds, the panel should display "20 installer code", indicating that the panel is in programming mode. Next, enter in *56. The panel will now be in zone programming.

The chart below explains some of the programmable fields within zone programming.



2. Select a zone. The panel will want to know which zone is being programmed. For key fobs, zones 26 - 41 are pre-set for use as key fob zones. We recommend starting with number 26. Enter in "26", then press the * key to continue.

3. Program arm away. The panel should display "b21 Arm-Away". If not, then enter 21, and press the * key to continue. Next, make the following inputs to program the arm away function:

  1. C10 report code > Press 0000 followed by *
  2. Input type d 5 BR Button type > Press *
  3. Loop # E3 > On the key fob, press and hold the arm away button (top left) for a few seconds then release. Do this twice. This will auto-learn the button. The panel will give 2 beeps after the 2nd key press if successful. Then Press *
  4. At the 1AL prompt, you can press and release the button again to verify the correct serial number was entered. If it was, you'll hear 3 beeps and the display will show 1ALC (learned and confirmed) > Press *
  5. 1C Zone description > Press *

Once you finish, the panel will automatically move on to the next zone, number 27.

4. Program disarm. The panel should display "A27 Zone Number". Press *. The message "B22 Disarm" should be displayed. If not, then enter 22 and press the * key to continue. Next, make the following inputs to program the disarm function:

  1. C10 report code > Press 0000 followed by *
  2. Input type d 5 BR Button type > Press *
  3. Loop # E2 > On the key fob, press and hold the disarm button (top right) for a few seconds then release. Do this twice. This will auto-learn the button. The panel will give 2 beeps after the 2nd key press if successful. Then Press *
  4. At the 1AL prompt, you can press and release the button again to verify the correct serial number was entered. If it was, you'll hear 3 beeps and the display will show 1ALC (learned and confirmed) > Press *
  5. 1C Zone description > Press *

Once you finish, the panel will automatically move on to to the next zone, number 28.

5. Program arm stay. The panel should display "A28 Zone Number". Press *. The zone type will be shown as B23. However, this is not the zone type needed for arm stay. Enter "20", and the message "Arm Stay" should be displayed. Press the * key to continue. Then make the following inputs to program the arm stay function:

  1. Verify report code is set to C00, if the code is not C00 simply press 0000 on the keypad to switch the code > Press *
  2. Input type d 5 BR Button type > Press *
  3. Loop # E4 > On the key fob, press and hold the arm stay button (bottom left) for a few seconds, then release. Do this twice. This will auto-learn the button. The panel will give 2 beeps after the 2nd key press if successful. Then Press *
  4. At the 1AL prompt, you can press and release the button again to verify the correct serial number was entered. If it was, you'll hear 3 beeps and the display will show 1ALC (learned and confirmed) > Press *
  5. 1C Zone description > Press *

Once you finish, the panel will automatically move on to the next zone, number 29.

5. Program panic. The panel should display "A29 Zone Number". Press *. The zone type will be shown as B23. However, this is not the zone type needed for panic. You have 3 choices, 24 Hour Silent (06) 24 Hour Audible (07) or 24 Hour Auxiliary (08). In our example, we'll use 24 Hour Audible. At B23, enter in "07", and the message "Panic" should be displayed. Press the * key to continue. Then make the following inputs to program the panic function:

  1. Report code should be set to C10, if the code is set to C00 the user will press 0100 on the keypad to display C10 > Press *
  2. Input type d 5 BR Button type > Press *
  3. Loop # E1 > On the key fob, press and hold the panic button (bottom right) for a few seconds, then release. Do this twice. This will auto-learn the button. The panel will give 2 beeps after the 2nd key press if successful. Then Press *
  4. At the 1AL prompt, you can press and release the button again to verify the correct serial number was entered. If it was, you'll hear 3 beeps and the display will show 1ALC (learned and confirmed) > Press *
  5. 1C Zone description > Press *

Once you finish, the panel will automatically move on to the next zone, number 30, which will display as A30.

The 5834-4 has the option of programming 8 buttons on the fob. The first 4 functions are the most commonly used, which we reviewed above. The second 4, use a serial number that is one digit higher than the one displayed on the 5834-4, and are activated by pressing 2 buttons on the fob at the same time. These are sometimes used for panics, as they are more difficult to trip accidentally.

6. Test the key fob. Once all 4 required buttons have been programmed, exit programming by pressing 00 at the A30 prompt, then * 99. With the panel out of programming, the user will now be able to test the key fob. Press a button on the fob for about 2-3 seconds to trigger the corresponding command. If the panel responds appropriately, the key fob was programmed correctly.
