The Honeywell 5828DM is a desk mount kit for the 5828 and 5828V wireless alarm keypads. While the Honeywell wireless alarm keypads are normally mounted flush to a wall, you can also use the 5828DM to mount them conveniently on a desk, counter top or bedside table. The 5828DM desk mount kit includes a K0991 AC power adapter and the plastic desk mount.
When using the 5828DM with a Honeywell 5828 or 5828V wireless alarm keypad, you will need to remove the backplate from the keypad before mounting it to the desk mount. After removing the backplate, insert the (4) retaining clips on the desk mount into the corresponding holes on the back of the wireless alarm keypad and slide the 5828 or 5828V down into place. Once the keypad is mounted to the desk mount, feed the K0991 wire through the hole underneath the desk mount and plug the DC connector into the plug found at the top of the hole in the back of the keypad. The 5828DM has wire cutouts so you can choose to route the wire through the back, left, or right side of the desk mount. Finally, plug your K0991 into a standard unswitched wall outlet and your Honeywell 5828 or 5828V wireless alarm keypad will be powered up and sitting at the perfect angle to operate your wireless security system.
If you use the included (4) black rubber feet, your 5828DM will not slip or scratch your surface. Also, there are wire strain-relief tie points at each wire cutout so that you can use tie-wraps to secure the K0991 wire to the desk mount. We highly recommend using the strain-relief points as wires can be inadvertently tripped on and you don’t want to damage the DC plug on the backside of your alarm keypad.
The 5828DM desk mount is perfect for renters. Instead of screwing the 5828 or 5828V into your wall and having to patch the holes before you move, you can mount your security system’s wireless keypad on any flat surface that is convenient. Of course, if you just want the K0991 AC power adapter that provides constant power to the wireless alarm keypads, you should purchase the K0991 by itself instead of this Honeywell 5828DM desk mount kit.
