hi DIYs Joe from alarm Brendan today we're going to talk about how to switch our 5834-4 key fob from low security mode to high security mode knowing the difference between low and high security on this key fob is going to save you some trouble and let you get some more features out of this particular unit the 58 34 is part of Honeywell 5800 line of sensors which is wide varied and it's been around for a long time it's really a good key fob for what it does if not a bit basic and its features the two operating modes that this key fob has is low security and high security when the 58 34 is in low security mode it's going to send the same string of characters every time that it transmits to the system so that means that every time you press the button it's going to send the same command to the system if somebody's on the location with a sniffing device what this would do is it would pick up or sniff the air to get the communication data and it found out what that was they could potentially spoof that command and send it from their own device tricking your system and unlocking it for them you don't want this to happen when you put the key fob into high security mode it's not changing any of the communication on the key fob it's still staying uni-directional what's happening though is that when we put it in the high security mode we have to sync it with the alarm system when we sync it with the system now the system is going to know what commands the fob is going to be sending going forward the fob itself will be transmitting different commands every time it communicates with the system and this adds extra security because when somebody sniffs the air and gets the communication data from the fob they won't be able to spoof it because they won't know what the next string of data should be that's sending from the fob to the system in this mode so it's a way of providing high security for your key fob and the system it adds an extra layer and it should prevent anything like that from happening as far as spoofing a regular command from the key fob it's really easy to see what mode the key fob is currently set into if it's in low security mode it's going to flash green and if it's in high security mode it's going to flash red now the flash is on the keyfob are a little on the light side so I don't know if you can see this but it is currently in low security mode when I switch it to high security mode you should see this LED turn red so let's do that now to switch the key fob in to high security mode all you have to do is hold the top left bottom left and bottom right buttons at the same time until that light turns red let's give it a shot there you go that red light tells us that we're in high security mode and if I press a button it's flashing red to switch it back to low security mode it's just as easy i press the bottom right or bottom left bottom right and the top right and what will happen is the light will turn green telling me that I'm back into low security mode if you do have any questions of about program the 5830 for how to use it or the difference between high and low security mode feel free to give us a call at eight at eight eight one eight seven seven to eight send us an e-mail to support at alarm grid comm or head to our website wwlp.com that's three WS if you did enjoy the video feel free to subscribe and if you want to be notified when we post future videos hit the notification button below and I'll send you an update when we do so thanks for watching and have a great day
