The Honeywell 6150RF is an alarm keypad with a fixed english display and an integrated transceiver (wireless receiver and transmitter module). The 6150RF is essentially (3) items in one; a 6150 fixed English alarm keypad, a 5881ENM wireless receiver and a 5800TM transmitter module.
The fixed English alarm keypad displays zones using a (3) digit numeric display and system status messages using pre-designated English prompts (e.g., “ALARM,” “AWAY,” “STAY,” “CHECK,” etc.). The 6150RF alarm keypad also has (2) LEDs to indicate system status. The green LED will be lit when the system is ready to be armed and the red LED will be lit when the security system is currently armed. As long as your security system supports permanent backlighting, you can program the 6150RF keypad to stay backlit at all times. Otherwise, the keypad button backlighting will automatically turn off after 30-40 seconds of inactivity. The Honeywell 6150RF also has a local sounder that utilizes piezoelectric technology to indicate burglary alarms with a continuous tone and fire alarms with a pulsing tone.
You may control your Honeywell security system using the 6150RF keypad. Keypad panics can also be activated from the Honeywell 6150RF by using the (4) special function keys (A-D) or the key pairs  & [*],  & [#] or [*] & [#] as long as the panics have been enabled in the security system’s programming. The special function keys are accessible even when the flip down door is closed and can also be programmed for quick arming or macro functions (frequently used series of key entries).
What makes the 6150RF alarm keypad so unique is that not only can you use it to control your system, but it also provides wireless capability for your security system. The integrated wireless receiver provides (16) wireless zones that are compatible with Honeywell 5800 series wireless devices and because the 6150RF also has the integrated transmitter module, you can even use bi-directional wireless devices. You can even program up to (8) wireless key fob buttons locally at the 6150RF alarm keypad without using up any of your security system’s available wireless zones.
Another valuable feature of the 6150RF is that it can activate relay functions that have been programmed into your Honeywell security system. There is also (1) on-board normally open relay built into the 6150RF. The contact rating for the relay is 1A at 28VDC and only one relay option can be programmed. Using a locally programmed key fob button, you can activate this relay output. We recommend using the 6150RF’s relay output as an inexpensive solution for opening your garage door with the touch of a key fob button.
Before using your 6150RF alarm keypad, you must set the device address so the security system recognizes that the keypad is installed. As device address 16 is set as an alpha console by default for most residential Honeywell security systems, we recommend addressing the 6150RF to (16) if you have a new installation and the 6150RF is your only keypad. If you are adding the alarm keypad to an already installed security system, you must make sure that you address the 6150RF to an unused device address capable of alpha console functionality.
We do not recommend using the Honeywell 6150RF alarm keypad for advanced security system programming such as the *56 zone programming sub menu mode. The programming fields in this mode will not be displayed on the fixed English keypad display and you will essentially be flying blind. It is highly recommended to use a Honeywell 6160RF or 6160 alphanumeric keypad for advanced security system programming.
