If you are looking to add an alpha-numeric keypad to your hard-wired system for easier programming and read out AND you were also thinking about adding some wireless devices, then the Honeywell 6160 Alpha Keypad/5883H Combo kit is what you'll want in your shopping cart!
It has a 32 character display with an easy to read English vocabulary. The keypad has 4 over-sized function keys that are programmable for one button press activation that can be accessed while the keypad door is closed.
The 5883H combines the technology of a wireless receiver and a wireless transmitter. The 5883H contains the same internal guts as a 5881ENH wireless receiver and a 5800TM wireless transmitter, but this unit will not only accept an RF House Code, but a Site ID as well.
