Which Keypad Works w/ a PROA7PLUS?

The keypads that work with a PROA7PLUS are the Honeywell Home PROSIXLCDKP, the Honeywell Home PROWLTOUCH and the Resideo PROWLTOUCHC. The PROSIXLCDKP uses the same wireless communication protocol as the PROSIX Series Sensors, and the PROWLTOUCH and PROWLTOUCHC pair across a WIFI network.

Keypad compatibility is the same across all of the ProSeries Alarm Panels from Honeywell Home and Resideo, albeit with one minor caveat. The ProSeries Alarm Panels include the Honeywell Home PROA7PLUS, the Honeywell Home PROA7, the Resideo PROA7PLUSC, and the Resideo PROA7C. The PROA7PLUS and PROA7PLUSC can readily support the Honeywell Home PROSIXLCDKP, the Honeywell Home PROWLTOUCH, and the Resideo PROWLTOUCHC. The PROA7PLUS and PROA7PLUSC both come with a PROWIFIZW Module inside, which provides the panel with WIFI and Z-Wave Plus connectivity. This is what allows the system to support the PROWLTOUCH and PROWLTOUCHC Keypads. The PROA7 and PROA7C can also readily support the PROSIXLCDKP, but they cannot readily support the PROWLTOUCH and PROWLTOUCHC. This is because the PROA7 and PROA7C lack the PROWIFIZW Module by default. However, you can add the PROWIFIZW Module or the PROWIFI Module (WIFI only, without Z-Wave Plus) to the PROA7 or PROA7C so that the system supports the PROWLTOUCH and PROWLTOUCHC Keypads. For reference, the Honeywell Home PROWLTOUCH and the Resideo PROWLTOUCHC are the exact same touchscreen keypad, except that the Honeywell Home PROWLTOUCH says "Honeywell Home" across its front plastic, while the Resideo PROWLTOUCHC says "Resideo" across its front. All functionality and compatibility for the two keypads are completely identical.

Honeywell Home PROWLTOUCH Keypad:


All ProSeries Security Systems, including the PROA7PLUS, support up to eight (8) keypads per partition. Since these systems are capable of supporting four (4) partitions, this means that it is possible to have up to 32 total keypads paired with any ProSeries Alarm Panel. The PROSIXLCDKP, the PROWLTOUCH, and the PROWLTOUCHC all count toward this limit. Keypads can be mixed and matched, as long as you do not exceed the limit of 8 keypads per system partition. The PROSIXLCDKP is a 32-character Alphanumeric Keypad that is nice for basic arming and disarming functionality. One great feature about the PROSIXLCDKP is that it allows you to switch between system partitions, provided that you have a valid code for the partition you want to control. However, one downside of the PROSIXLCDKP is that it cannot be used for any smart home automation control. It is just for arming, disarming, and bypassing zones.

Honeywell Home PROSIXLCDKP:


The PROWLTOUCH and PROWLTOUCHC are considerably more advanced. These are both touchscreen keypads that mimic the interface of the ProSeries Panel. Just like when controlling the ProSeries Panel, you can switch between different system partitions from the PROWLTOUCH and PROWLTOUCHC, as long as you have a valid code. These touchscreen keypads also allow you to perform smart home functions, which is impossible on the PROSIXLCDKP. Remember that you can only pair the PROWLTOUCH and PROWLTOUCHC with a ProSeries System that has a PROWIFI or PROWIFIZW Module installed. This is no worry for a PROA7PLUS or a PROA7PLUSC, as both of those systems have the PROWIFIZW Module installed from the factory.
