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 [1] & [*], [3] & [#] 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.


Now I can do wireless...

The 6150rf was recommended because I wanted to add a keypad and some wireless sensors. Turns out my system didnt have a wireless receiver even though the salesman that sold it to me promised me it would. Now that I found Alarm Grid Im glad I dont have to buy anything else from my local company. Sterling helped me save money by getting this instead of a keypad and separate wireless receiver and he walked me through setting it up. Took me about 20 minutes and now I have wireless smoke detectors in my house.

Look for similar items

Okay, the 6150RF would be ideal for you.
Thanks. I have multiple alphanumeric keypads. I was hoping to get some better reception with sensors I want to install in the backyard versus connecting them to a wireless module at the panel in the basement. Thanks
Typically you'd get about 200' from the 6150RF to the sensors. Unless you already have an alphanumeric keypad (such as the 6160), I suggest getting the 6160RF instead as you'll need an alphanumeric to program your wireless sensors.
What kind of distance do you think I will get with the 6150 RF? I want to add some wireless zones to my system but I'm not sure which wireless transceiver to use, the keypad or panel version? Thanks
Hooray! Glad to help.
I'm in business. Resetting the unit to default did it. I enrolled all of my wireless sensors yesterday. Thanks, Julia!
Ok. So I did a reset of the 6150RF. I also made sure that field 22 was set to 2 (it was). Now, a dumb question: Do I need to enroll the wireless sensors using the 6150RF? I had been trying to use the 6160 for programming (learning in my RF zones) and enrolling. Basically, I kept the sensors downstairs near the 6150RF and ran back and forth. I'm wondering if the magic is in enrolling at the 6150RF...? Thanks for your help!
Hi Doon, First of all, be sure that programming location *22 is enabled with a 2. If this is not enabled, it probably won't even let you go to zone 10. Once that's enabled, see if you can learn in your RF zones. If not, there are a couple of possibilities. You may have enough keypads that you'r drawing too much current from the panel's auxiliary power bus. If so, remove all but the 6160, and 6150rf, at least until you're done programming. If that doesn't do the trick, then I suggest a default of the 6150rf. Power it down, power it back up, then hold down 1 and 3 within about 30 seconds of power up. When you see the -- 00 flashing back and forth, press 9, you'll see EE on the display, then press 1. You'll hear 3 beeps, then it'll go back to -- 00. Hit * to exit programming and try again. The default settings in the 6150rf, should work perfectly with the 10se, with no changes (no need to set House ID to Local, etc).
@sterlingdonnelly:disqus : I can't tell you how much I appreciate your site and your videos on YouTube! We moved into a new house with a Vista 10se system and old keypads. I wanted to add some wireless sensors in the basement and picked up a 6150RF only to find out that it can't really be used for programming. I bought a 6160 for that and thought I'd be good to go, but I can't seem to figure out how to get everything working. I have both new keypads addressed to 31 (like the rest of the keypads in the house). The new RF unit works as a regular keypad just fine. I don't get how to enroll the wireless sensors, though. I enabled the transmitter and receiver on the unit (this is the 6150RF), set the house ID, and set it to LOCAL (instead of system). When I activate one of my wireless sensors, I can see a tiny red LED in the unit flash, so I know it's receiving a signal. I used the 6160 to begin enrolling/programming the new wireless sensors (starting at zone 10). Got one programmed, but it's not talking to the 6150RF unit. Do I need to 'enroll' the 6150rf unit, too (i.e. in its own zone)? What am I doing wrong?
Yes, I believe that is the First Alert equivalent of a Honeywell 6150RF.
Is the Fa270rf the same as the 6150rf??
