How Many Wireless Zones Will a 6150RF Support?

The Honeywell 6150RF keypad supports a total of 16 wireless zones and 8 keyfobs. The 6150RF allows support of keyfobs without using any of the “16” wireless zones when programmed in local mode. The 6150RF has a built in 5881ENM receiver and 5800 transmitter module and will also support Honeywell 5800 series RF devices.

Users can program bi-directional wireless devices using Local or System mode. Local mode requires setting the 6150's house ID and all bi-directional devices must then be set to match this entry. System mode tells the keypad to use the panel’s programmed house ID and bi-directional devices need to match the panel’s entry. The 8 keyfobs are also programmed in Local Mode, which is why they don't use panel zones. Each keyfob is learned into the 6150RF, and is assigned to a valid panel user code. Once programmed, when a button for arming or disarming is pressed on the fob, the information is transmitted to the alarm panel as if the user pressed the 4 digit code + the arming command on the keypad. If a panic key is programmed for the keyfob, pressing this button emulates the * + # panic on the panel, usually programmed as zone 99. So, if this zone is programmed as a silent panic, the keyfob panic will be silent, if it's programmed as an audible panic, the keyfob panic will be audible, etc.

The Honeywell 6150RF is a fixed English keypad and will display limited words along with zone numbers. Users will not be able to program new devices through panel programming with a 6150RF keypad.

The 6150RF keypad has a drop down door which hides the keys. Users have the option to remove the door.

If more than 16 wireless zones are needed, the Honeywell 6160RF is a great option. The 6160RF supports an unlimited number of wireless zones. The Honeywell 6160RF has a built in 5881ENH wireless receiver and 5800 transmitter module that will support as many wireless zones as the alarm control panel supports. Because the 6160RF provides an unlimited number of wireless zones, there are no dedicated keyfob zones.

The Honeywell 6160RF keypad is an alphanumeric keypad and has a 32 character display and can be used for programming new devices.

Both the 6150RF and the 6160RF keypads have 4 function keys which can be programmed for emergency situations, like medical, police, fire and panic alarms.

Both the 6150RF and the 6160RF keypads have an RF transmitting receiving range of up to 200 feet. Users should check the wireelss device for RF transmitting range as some may vary.

Yes we cover that as well as many other self help options on our website. Please watch this and use the site to find any other videos to be of benefit. The 10p programs zones the same as a 20p. https://www.alarmgrid.com/faq/how-do-i-program-a-wireless-zone-on-my-honeywell-vista-20p Otherwise you can just bypass the zone for now. It will stay bypassed until you do a disarm command. https://www.alarmgrid.com/videos/what-is-bypassing-a-zone-on-a-security-system
I'll do that then. Do you have any steps on how to disable the motion sensor temporarily on the 6160rf with the Vista 10P? And will it get re-enabled automatically next morning? Also, I have just one keypad in the house (the 6150RF), is it a rule of thumb to always get the first keypad addressed to 16? Could it be possible that when ADT installed it for the previous house owner could've use a different number? If so, can I find out what it is currently addressed to with the 6150RF? Thanks a lot for all the assistance.
It is possible but unfortunately it is not recommended. The reason is the screen is not capable of displaying the menus in the zone programming field. Therefore us nor the manufacturer support attempting or assisting anyone to do this. I would proceed in getting an alpha keypad like you stated.
Thank you Freddie. The reason why I want to get a 6160rf is to be able to disable my motion detector sensor so it doesn't go off when activated before going to sleep at nights. Do you know if this can be achieved with the 6150RF
Yes, the keypad is a direct swap physically. If it the only keypad you have just be sure the new keypad is addressed to 16. Here's a video on addressing keypads. https://www.alarmgrid.com/faq/how-do-you-address-a-honeywell-alarm-keypad
I currently have a Vista 10P with a Honeywell 6150RF keypad. All my windows and doors' sensors are wireless. I want to upgrade the keypad to the Honeywell 6160RF. Is it just swap and play or does it require some configuration? If the latter, what do I need to do? Thanks
