The Honeywell 6160V is a talking alpha display alarm keypad. The 6160V hardwired keypad is the ideal full-function premier keypad for notification from and control of a Honeywell VISTA Series security system. The 6160V is similar to the 6160 with the added features of voice messages for system trouble events, zone notifications, alarm situations and system status. The 6160V is an alpha-numeric keypad, meaning the 32-character display is able to notify the system’s user in plain English of any status updates. The 6160V will also speak the zone or system status of the Honeywell security system back to you. Because of the alphanumeric display, the 6160V is a recommended keypad for full system programming including programming of advanced features and sub-menus.
The Honeywell 6160V takes the guesswork out of using a security system by speaking all needed system information back to you. The 6160V keypad can also be used as a message center. You can record, and playback messages of up to 2.5 minutes. The 6160V can announce each zone as it is opened or faulted when set in voice chime mode, and the security system it is being used with has chime mode enabled. In order to activate voice chime mode on the 6160V, press [#] function +  voice +  volume + . When voice chime is enabled, the 6160V will also announce the system status in plain English by pressing the [#] function +  voice + [*] status keys. If the [*] status key is pressed twice, the 6160V will speak and display the faulted zones, including the zone descriptors.
Like all Honeywell hardwired keypads, the 6160V must be addressed to a corresponding address in the security system control panel. Enter the 6160V programming mode by pressing the  &  keys at the same time during the first minute of powering up the keypad. After entering in the desired address, which should start at 16 and go through 23 on Honeywell VISTA Series alarm control panels, press [*] to save and continue to the voice chime menu. Enter  to turn voice chime on, and  to turn voice chime off, then press [*] to save and continue to the additional console menu.
