If you are looking for a wireless touchscreen keypad for a Resideo PROA7PLUSC, a Resideo PROA7C, or their Honeywell Home equivalents, then the Resideo PROWLTOUCHC Keypad is here for you. This is a WIFI keypad that requires that the security panel has a PROWIFIZW or PROWIFI installed inside.
A maximum of eight (8) keypads can be paired with a single partition on a ProSeries Panel like the PROA7PLUSC and PROA7C. Each PROWLTOUCH and PROWLTOUCHC Touchscreen Keypad counts toward this limit. If you are using any Honeywell Home PROSIXLCDKP Touchpad Keypads, then make sure to count those devices as well. Since the ProSeries Panels have up to four (4) partitions, you can have up to (32) total keypads on the system. Also, even though the PROWLTOUCHC is assigned to a specific partition, you can still use the keypad to switch between different partitions for arming/disarming and checking status, provided that you have a valid code for the partition you want to view or control.
If you are trying to decide between a touchscreen keypad and a traditional numeric keypad, then consider the fact that a touchscreen keypad like the PROWLTOUCHC will likely offer an easier and more straightforward experience for day-to-day operation. Another benefit of a touchscreen keypad like the PROWLTOUCHC is that you can also use it as a controller for your Z-Wave automation devices. Really, almost any function that can be performed from the main ProSeries 7" All-In-One Panel can also be performed using the PROWLTOUCHC Keypad.
One other great aspect about the PROWLTOUCHC is that it is very easy to set up. You can auto-enroll the keypad with the main panel to help ensure a streamlined process. We also love how the PROWLTOUCHC Keypad has a backlit display. You will have no trouble using it in the dark or at night. The keypad is even smart enough to turn off the backlight during power outages to conserve power and remain running for as long as possible. But the backlight will still come back on whenever the keypad screen is pressed, or if the system goes into alarm or entry/exit delay. The PROWLTOUCHC receives primary power from a 5V, 1A Micro USB Power Supply. The keypad's backup battery keeps the device operational for about four (4) hours in the event of AC power loss. Keypad volume can be adjusted as needed.
Since the PROWLTOUCHC has a tablet-like design, you can easily keep it flat on a desk or table. Another option is to position the keypad upright using its built-in mini kickstand. There are also some mounting accessories that are available for separate purchase, including the PROWLTOUCHWM and the PROWLTOUCHDM. The keypad can be easily removed from its wall mount or desk mount dock so that you can carry it around when performing tasks like pairing new Z-Wave devices. There is an LED light on the PROWLTOUCHC that indicates the current arming status of the paired system. Other features for the PROWLTOUCHC include an integrated camera and microphone, language options (English, French, Spanish), and optional Chime.
Don't forget that WIFI is a requirement for the PROWLTOUCHC. The ProSeries Panel must have a WIFI card installed inside. For the PROA7PLUS and PROA7PLUSC, this is not a major concern, as these systems both come with the PROWIFIZW built inside. But the PROA7 and PROA7C do not come with this module, and you need to add a WIFI card on your own. The aforementioned PROWIFIZW, which includes both WIFI and Z-Wave, can be purchased for this task. Or you can get the PROWIFI, which only offers WIFI, if you don't care about Z-Wave functionality.
Note: This keypad says "Resideo" across the front. There is also a different version of this same keypad that instead reads "Honeywell Home" across the front. It is called the Honeywell Home PROWLTOUCH. You can check it out here.
