The Honeywell 6148 is a fixed English alarm keypad that is a compact and cost effective option for controlling all Honeywell wired security systems. The large, easy to read display provides feedback on security system status and zone information using predetermined English messages and programmed zone numbers.
Because the 6148 is a fixed English keypad, it can only provide a limited number of messages. Therefore, it is not recommended that you use the 6148 alarm keypad for advanced security system programming that requires sub-menu access. You should use an alphanumeric keypad such as the Honeywell 6160 for full security system programming. The Honeywell 6148 is functionally similar to the 6150 fixed English alarm keypad, except that it lacks the (4) programmable one-touch function buttons. The 6148 alarm keypad features the same stylish case as other Honeywell wired keypads, allowing you to mix and match more advanced keypads with the basic fixed English model. You can save on cost when using multiple hardwired keypads to control your Honeywell security system by utilizing the Honeywell 6148 in any location where only basic user functions are necessary.
The Honeywell 6148 has a full functioning soft-touch keypad that is backlit for easy use in a dark environment. In addition, there are (3) special-function key pairs that can be programed for police, fire and medical panic situations. By pressing the  & [*], [*] & [#], or  & [#] keys together, you can activate audible or silent emergency notifications from your 6148 alarm keypad.
The 6148 fixed English alarm keypad must be addressed to your Honeywell control panel to function properly. Acceptable addresses range from (00) to (30). To program your alarm keypad’s address, hold down the  and  keys together for (3) seconds during the first minute after powering up the keypad and then enter the (2) digit keypad address. The Honeywell 6148 keypad requires a four wire data bus connection to the ECP terminals on your alarm control panel.
