The manual states that to enter programming mode, I have to press * and # at the same time within 50 seconds after applying power. (Yes, battery is disconnected here.) I did that, but the keypad shows nada - zip on the alpha screen. (Keypad *DOES* light up and beep, responding to key presses..... but that's all.)
OK so I then thought maybe I needed to first assign a keypad address. The 6150RF keypad manual states that the keypad can be programmed by holding 1 and 3 within 30 seconds from power up. I did, and per this forum post: http://www.diysecuri...p?topic=11565.0 I pressed 1, 16, *. Now, the keypad display toggles between "--" and "oo"
While I sat there scratching my head and reading the manuals, again the fire alarm condition arose.
I powered this damn thing off for tonight. What am I doing wrong?
Here's a detailed list of how I've connected everything:
6150RF keypad (black terminal 4, red terminal 5, green terminal 6, yellow terminal 7)
Wired motion sensor (black terminal 4, red terminal 5, green terminal 8, yellow terminal 9, so this is on zone 1, with an EOLR since I read that zone 1 is EOLR only.)
Front door zone 2
Back door zone 3
Garage door zone 4
window - zone 5
Window - zone 6
Window - zone 7
Window - zone 8
BTW - I have no smoke detectors involved here.... obviously the panel is confused.
