What is the recommended keypad to replace my original 6128RFP1 keypad?

Due to the repeated use and/or age of our current system, it is requiring more pressure to activate the keypad numbers. The security system has 4 wireless door sensors, 1 wireless motion sensor, 1 hard wired motion sensor, an internal and a external speaker. The original keypad is a Ademco model 6128RFP1, what would be the recommended keypad to replace it?

  • Doug,

    Thank you for your patience, you can post questions to the community here 24/7 and anyone is able to respond back at anytime if they have the answer. The technicians are here Mon-Fri 8:30am-7pm CST and Saturday from 8-12 so questions are answered pretty quick during that time.  Some of the techs here will answer posts in the off times but you cant rely on that.

    In answer to your question though I would recommend replacing the 6128RFP1 with the 6160RF if you are using it on a Vista series panel.

  • Just replaced my old keypad with the new 6160RF, I powered the system up DC first then AC, held the 1&3 keys within 30 seconds the display shows 16. I changed that to 31* then keyed in 1*, to enable the system, I thought that would return my system to normal per Anthony when I ordered the new keypad. The display then read RE ADDRESS= XX, I did not know what to key in for that, so I stopped. What are the detailed steps I need to do to return the system to normal?

  • I can't provide an answer to your latest question, but I can confirm that the Tuxedo Touch also works as an alpha keypad for programming the Vista21IP alarm panel using the emulated console mode located in the Security -> Other Options menu.  The only thing you have to do before having this available is to enable AUI devices on the panel.  Choose 1 for all 4 supported AUI addresses (Vista21IP supports a maximum of 4 AUI devices like the Tuxedo).

    The benefit to using the Tuxedo Touch instead of just a 6160RF for example is that, not only do you get the alpha keypad and 5800 wireless functionality, but every Tuxedo after the first can work as secondary z-wave controllers as well as providing z-wave repeater functionality to expand your z-wave coverage.  This can be very useful if you have a larger home or a small to medium size commercial/industrial building.

    There are of course many other benefits to this type of setup, but that is a topic for a different discussion.
