Description

The Honeywell 6160RF is an alarm keypad with an alphanumeric display and an integrated wireless receiver and transmitter module. Instead of installing a 6160 alarm keypad, a 5881ENH wireless receiver and a 5800TM transmitter module separately, you can save money and streamline your installation by adding just the 6160RF keypad with integrated transceiver. Once you add a 6160RF alarm keypad to your Honeywell security system, you can install any 5800 series wireless device including the bi-directional devices. The wireless receiver built into the 6160RF is compatible with as many wireless zones as your security system allows.

Not only does the Honeywell 6160RF support more wireless zones than the Honeywell 6150RF but it also has a large 2-line alphanumeric LCD display. Therefore, you can access your security system’s *56 zone programming menus and program custom alpha zone descriptors. The zone programming fields will be displayed on the keypad display to guide you properly as your program your zones. In addition, your zones will be displayed by their custom alpha descriptor making your security system as user friendly as possible.

The 6160RF’s built-in speaker provides warning sounds during alarm and trouble signals to keep you aware of your security system’s status. It will also beep at you during entry/exit delay periods so that you know how much time you have to exit the home after arming and how much time you have to disarm the security system when you come home. In addition, the sounder beeps acknowledgment when any key is pressed and provides confirmation tones after you have successfully keyed in a command at the keypad.

The Honeywell 6160RF will need to be addressed within your security system’s device addressing programming section before you will be able to use the keypad. To address the 6160RF you need to simultaneously press the [1] and [3] keys within (60) seconds of power up. If you have pressed the keys in time, “CON ADDRESS = XX” will be displayed where “XX” is the 2-digit device address currently programmed. Simply enter the 2-digit device address that you will be using for the 6160RF and then press the [*] key to confirm. (Ensure that no other device installed on your security system is using that device address and that it is a device address setup for alpha console functionality.) After addressing the keypad, you can also enable the integrated receiver and set its device address. The keypad programming will time out automatically (60) seconds after power up so make sure to navigate through all the fields quickly to ensure all entries were accepted. If the programming times out before you were done programming all fields, you should power the keypad down and start over.

If the 6160RF alarm keypad displays “Low Bat” along with a 2-digit zone number, the wireless device corresponding to that zone number has a low battery that needs to be replaced. If “Open Ckt” is being displayed, the security system is not receiving any data from the keypad. You must then check for shorts along the data wire connection. If “Check 1XX” is being displayed, with “XX” being the device address of the wireless receiver, the security system is not detecting the wireless receiver or the receiver is malfunctioning. You should verify the data in and data out wires are connected to the proper terminals on the security system alarm control panel. You should also make sure that the wireless receiver’s device address is compatible with RF receivers and that no other devices are using the same address.

Honeywell 6160RF

This is a great price for a great keypad. I bought a house that had an older V20P and all doors wired up. I wanted to add some motion detectors so I just replaced the older keypad with a 6160RF. Instead of having to run wire through my walls, the 6160RF has a wireless receiver so I just used Honeywell wireless motion detectors. I added some wireless smoke detectors while I was at it.

Hi Frank, Thanks for the valueable tip! Have a gread day. Steve
Not the news you want to hear but there is no backlight timeout setting for the keys. They are designed to stay lit so you can find the keypad at night. Most keypads, have a swinging door to cover the keys. This may serve as a way to block the light if your keypad has it.
Hi Sterling, The keys. Is there an option to program the backlite timed out for the keys? Thanks, Steve
Is it the display that's back lit or just the keys?
Hi Sterling, How does the display's backlit turn off automatically in a certain time after no key is press? What do I need to do? I left it overnight but the backlight is still on. (no vibration, no one around!). Steve
Okay, so with that panel the display is backlit when any key is pressed and times out after 30-45 seconds and the keys are backlit at all times for easy visibility.
Thanks for reply Stering. The control panel is Vista P20, ver 10.21. Steve
What alarm control panel do you have?
My 6162RF's keyboard backlight is on all the time (even after 2hours idle/inactive. Please let me know how to disable/turn off when it is in inactive. thanks, Steve
It sounds like you have a branded version of an L3000 LYNX Plus system - https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/honeywell-l3000. If you power down the system by opening it up and disconnecting the battery connector and then unplugging the wall transformer, you should be able to power back up and press and hold * and # together to get into programming mode.
Yes that's the only other model number I could find. The key board has several mother boards in sidentifying it. The key board has a board with a sim number,Mac #and lmei number. I could not locate the box you where talking about.
Did you read that off the power supply plugged into a wall outlet?
Model number k10145 x 10
That sounds like something you read off the keypad. You need to locate the beige metal alarm cabinet that houses the green circuit board. It is usually located in a basement, garage, laundry room or storage closet.
Is it k14120? I'm new at this home alarm systems. If that's not it where would I find it?
APX Alarm is just a monitoring company, not an alarm manufacturer. Do you know the model number of the system (not the keypad)?
I just bought my house it has a honeywell alarm (apxalarm) how do I get it startedone with no codes. The previous owner did not leave them.
Yes, you can use a 6160RF to access programming of a Safewatch Pro 3000 no matter what PROM version you have.
Can I use this keypad to view the programming menus on a ADT SafeWatch Pro 3000 (i.e. a Vista 20P) with a very old PROM prior to upgrading to a standard Honeywell PROM so I can get it Internet-enabled with monitoring? So I just want to do *56 first before changing the PROM; I'm not trying to change anything yet. I do have working codes.
What is printed on the white sticker on the PROM chip in the middle of your VISTA-15P control panel inside the beige metal cabinet? Also, when the screen is blank and the keypad is connected with the system powered up, what does it display when you press and hold 1 and 3 together?
Why is my 6160rf not connecting to my Vista15p? I input the address "16" and the proper codes for setup, but it never cyles through and connects. I get no error messages or codes, just a blank screen. Am I supposed to input anything into the system with my old keypad first. When I reconnect the old keypad it still works fine.
You can choose from any that look similar at https://www.alarmgrid.com/browse/wired-door-contacts-and-window-contacts. The brand shouldn't matter. The Honeywell 945Ts ( https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/honeywell-945t ) are popular surface mount contacts.
Which hard wired window contacts do I need? I have one window (set of contacts) that has quit working. The window contacts I have now have the self-adhesive backing on them but no brand or model number, etc. Thanks for your help.
