The Honeywell 5834-4 is a four button wireless security key fob compatible with all Honeywell wireless security systems. The buttons can be used to arm your security system in stay or away mode, disarm the system, activate an audible or silent panic alarm or any other feature of your Honeywell wireless security system. The 5834-4 key fob is equipped with (4) programmable buttons, and (4) multi-button programmable features, for (8) total actions.

In order to prevent false alarms, the buttons of the 5834-4 security key fob are recessed so that you don’t accidentally press a button while the key fob is in your pocket or bag. The buttons must also be held for 1/2 second before a signal transmission occurs. The Honeywell 5834-4 key fob is equipped with a bi-color LED which flashes green when transmitting a signal in standard mode, and red when transmitting a signal in high-security mode. If the LED does not flash, this means that the 5834-4 has a low battery.

The Honeywell 5834-4 security key fob should be programmed as an unsupervised Button RF, to avoid trouble signals when the device is out of range (50’). The 5834-4 has (2) serial numbers for programming, serial number 1, loops 1-4 are used for each button, A, B, C&D; and serial number 2, loops 1-4 are used for each pair of buttons, A&B, C&D, A&C, B&D.

The 5834-4 is powered by a replaceable 3V lithium battery (included) that should last 3-5 years.

The Honeywell 5834-4 wireless security key fob is compatible with any of the 5800 series wireless receivers.

Got this for my wife to use. Took a little getting used to, but she figured it out pretty quick. This key fob is awesome, and it make arming and disarming really easy. She's not a techy at all, and this made the whole getting an alarm thing easy as pie. She loves it, and now she's not complaining about the "complicated keypad thing."

Try this FAQ - on enrolling high security mode. Honeywell has begun shipping the fobs in this mode so you need this extra step to make them work now.
I have been trying to pair this fob for a couple of days. I have put in the serial number and also did the auto pairing which worked as well. Although it seems to recognize the device, the led is always red when transmitting and it will not arm or disarm the l7000. Any thoughts here?
Yes, the 6160RF provides the wireless zones support. The VAM provides Z-Wave support which is a different type of wireless technology.
Got it! Thank you for the explanation. So where the Vista 21ip supports wired zones, the 6160RF keypad steps in and provides wireless zones capability? Will the inclusion of a VAM provide this as well?
The VISTA-21iP does not have built-in RF capability. You need to have a wireless receiver connected to your system as well. You can add a standalone wireless receiver, but I would recommend instead to replace your 6150 with a 6160RF ( ). This 6160RF keypad will provide up to 40 zones of wireless support and it's a programming alphanumeric keypad which you'll also need to program your key fob zones.
With a vista 21ip, wired 6150 keypad, and two eight zone expanders, is there anything else I need in order to make this key fob work? I am assuming the 21ip has a built in RF transmitter?
The Honeywell key fobs have recently started shipping with high security mode enabled. You need to enable high security mode on your system by pressing More > Tools > enter Installer Code > Test > Go/No Go Test. Once you are in the Go/No Go Test mode, press and hold all buttons on the fob except for the panic button until it beeps twice. After it beeps twice, you should be able to press and hold the unlock button on the fob to disarm the system and exit out of the Go/No Go Test mode.
I was able to program a new key fob into my system, but it doesn't seem to work - when I press any of the buttons on the fob the light on it flashes red instead of green and the system doesn't recognize the command.
Unfortunately, no, Honeywell has not yet added a keyfob zone type for stay instant, so there is no way to do this.
Is it possible to set one of the buttons on this remote to STAY INSTANT instead of the default STAY DELAY?
