Ademco 6160 Alpha Keypad/5883H Transceiver Combo Kit

The Ademco 6160 Alpha Keypad/5883H Transceiver Combo Kit is Honeywell’s way of bringing you two great products in one money-saving package! This kit is a combination of a standard Ademco 6160 Alpha Numeric Keypad and a 5883H Transceiver. If you would like to add a second keypad to your system, add the ability for your hard-wire system to incorporate wireless devices, and save some money then this is the kit for you.

The 6160 Alpha Keypad is great because it not only reads out zone numbers, but you can add labels for it to read out as well so that you don’t have to guess what is on zone number ’06’. (more…)

Honeywell GSMV Cellular Communicator

Honeywell GSMV Cellular Communicator

The Honeywell GSMV Cellular Communicator is a great way for you to add full contact ID reporting over GSM to a central station monitoring service. You can use this unit as a backup to your existing land-line or for primary reporting. This unit handles Contact ID reporting using ECP mode with compatible Honeywell control panels or combined with optional dialer capture for non-ECP capable control panels. Dialer capture mode means that it pulls the signal from your panels phone line connections. That means that instead of hooking into your ECP terminals, where your keypads hook into, you can have it report this way as well.

This unit should be used with Honeywell panels but you could also use this on another panel where you could use the dialer capture mode. (more…)

Honeywell GSMVLP5 For Lynx Touch

The Honeywell GSMVLP5 for the new Lynx Touch alarm system is only compatible with this system. It gives Lynx Touch users the ability to get rid of their land-line phone lines for communicating to a central station monitoring service.

If the only thing that you are keeping your land-line for is your Lynx Touch alarm system then this will let you get rid of it totally. The Honeywell GSMVLP5 will allow your Honeywell Lynx Touch to communicate with a central station monitoring service through the GSM cell phone frequency.

Installation is a snap and the unit is plug and play with a couple of programming changes of course. You just pop open the front cover of the Lynx Touch, attach in the GSM module in the provided space with the three screws provided, enable the GSM, configure alarm reporting and module supervision, and register the device.

Honeywell Lynx Touch L5000

The Honeywell Lynx Touch L5000 is here!!! If you were a fan of the Lynx Plus then you will love the new version of the Lynx alarm panel. This touch screen panel is so user-friendly that it might put some installers out of business!

Honeywell 5883H Wireless Tranceiver

Honeywell 5883H Wireless Tranceiver

Honeywell 5883H Wireless Tranceiver

The Honeywell 5883H Wireless Tranceiver is for those who have alarm systems and have areas in their location that can’t be easily wired. If you have a wired system and a finished home then this add-on can help you expand your systems capability greatly.

The Ademco 5883H is a receiver and transmitter combined into one unit. Honeywell claims that this is a combination of the 5881ENH receiver and a 5800TM transmitter module. In a manner it is but there is a difference. (more…)

Ademco 5839 Wireless Alpha Keypad

The Ademco 5839 Wireless Alpha Keypad is great for people who want additional keypads for their Vista series panels but don’t want to or can’t run the wire for a traditional wired keypad. This will only work with a 5883 receiver and will not work with the RF receiver keypads.

The 5839 is a full alpha display keypad  that compares to the Ademco 6160 wired keypad. It reads out all alarm events in plain English text. It also, if programmed, will read out descriptors for your zones.  It features function keys just like the 6160 as well. (more…)

Ademco 5800RP RF Wireless Repeater Module

Ademco 5800RP RF Wireless Repeater Module

Ademco 5800RP RF Wireless Repeater Module

The Ademco 5800RP RF Wireless Repeater Module is great for those who aren’t happy with the 200 ft. transmission range of their Honeywell Vista or Lynx alarm panels can use this to extend that range indefinitely.

A lot of people stray from purchasing the Honeywell hardwired or wireless panels because of the lack of range, but they often don’t know that that problem can be solved by adding this to their systems. This is one of the greatest additions to the Honeywell wireless line that I’ve seen for awhile. (more…)
