I have a Honeywell Wireless Doorbell Kit. Can I integrate it with a Honeywell Home Alarm Kit?

Yes, Honeywell Wireless Doorbell and Home Alarm Kits can work together using Honeywell ActivLink® technology. It is possible to:

  • Link the wireless push button to the alarm keypad to enable the keypad as an additional doorbell sounder.
  • Link the wireless doorbell to the alarm keypad to enable the doorbell as an additional internal siren.
How do I link a Honeywell wireless siren to my Honeywell Apartment Alarm Kit or Home Alarm Kit?
  1. Enter Programming mode by pressing the Programme button followed by swiping a contactless tag or entering your PIN code. The keypad will play a melody to indicate success.

The Siren is not sounding the alarm when the keypad alarm is triggered in the home. The LED indicators on the Siren are flashing, so I know that there is still battery power. What could be wrong?

The Siren could be in Service mode.

  1. Check to see if the Siren is in Service mode. First, enter Test mode on the keypad by pressing the disarm button on the keypad, followed by swiping a contactless tag or entering your PIN code. The keypad will respond by playing a melody.

     

  2. Now press the number 8 on the Keypad. If the Siren does not respond, it means that it is still in Service mode.

    ka_maintenance_22

  3. Now press number 9 on the Keypad. The siren will produce 1 long beep followed by 2 short beeps to confirm that it is now in Operating mode. Press the disarm button again on the keypad to exit Test mode. The keypad will play a melody once again to confirm.

If the above does not work, the Siren has not been linked to the Keypad.

  1. Remove the battery cover on the rear of the Siren and locate the row of dip switches. Ensure that dip switch 5 is set to the OFF position as shown in the diagram.

I have a Honeywell Quick Start Alarm Kit (Siren-based alarm). The Siren has power (flashing LEDs) but will not respond to the remote control. How do I fix this?

The Siren could be in Service mode. Switch the Siren to Operating Mode:

  1. Press and hold the 'Disarm' button ka_disarm on your remote control key fob for 5 seconds.
  2. The siren should produce a single long beep followed 1 second later by two short beeps.

    bss_beeeeeep_beep

  3. The Siren LEDs will flash together in conjunction with the beeps.
  4. If the Siren still does not respond, check to see if the Remote Control or Siren batteries are low. Otherwise, the remote control may need to be re-linked to the Siren.

 

I have a Honeywell Quick Start Alarm Kit (Siren-based alarm), and none of the Remote Controls are linked. How do I link the remote control key fob to the Siren?
  1. Unscrew and remove the battery cover on the Siren

  2. Locate the row of DIP switches and ensure DIP switch 5 is set to 'ON'

    ka_siren_off

  3. Locate the 'LEARN' button inside the battery compartment of the Siren.
  4. Press and hold the 'LEARN' button for 5 seconds

    ka_programming_mode_38

  5. The Siren will emit a single short beep and both the Comfort LEDs and the Learn LED will flash together slowly once every 2 seconds. The Siren will remain in Learn Mode for 30 seconds.



  6. Press the Disarm button on the remote control key fob once

  7. The Siren will respond by beeping.
I have a Honeywell Quick Start Alarm Kit (siren-based). Why doesn’t the wireless door and window sensor trigger the alarm?

Try one of the following solutions in this order:

  1. Ensure that the sensor is within effective radio range of the Siren and is not mounted close to metal objects which may interfere with the wireless radio transmission.
  2. Ensure the battery isolation tab has been removed from the side of the sensor.

    ka_linking_new_magnetic_door_window_sensor_5

  3. Ensure that the gap between the Magnet and Sensor is no more than than 10mm.

    ka_positioning_the_door_window_sensor_4

  4. Check and replace the battery in the door and window sensor.

    If the above does not work, you will need to re-link the wireless door and window sensor to the Siren. Check the relevant FAQ or the Instruction Manual on how to do this.
How do I know when to change the batteries?

All battery-powered devices in your Honeywell home alarm system have a low battery indication as follows:

  • Door and window sensors - The LED on the sensor will flash x3 when opening the door/window.
  • Motion sensors - The LED in the window of the sensor will flash x3 after detecting a person's movement.
  • Remote control - The LED will flash x3 after pressing any button.
  • Keypad - The low battery indicator icon ka_low_battery will illuminate. 
  • Battery Siren - For Siren alarm kits or when in Control Unit mode, the Siren will produce 3 beeps after the disarm button is pressed. When the Siren is in Siren mode, the batteries will need replacing when the comfort LEDs stop flashing.

Typical household batteries should last up to 12 months for the keypad and 18-24 months for all other devices.

Battery SirenUp to 18 month
Door Window Contact DetectorUp to 2 years
PIR Movement DetectorUp to 2 years
Remote ControlUp to 2 years

If I use an optional 5V micro USB adaptor to power my keypad, what happens to the batteries in the keypad?

The batteries in the keypad will act as back up power in the event of a mains power failure.

The batteries in my keypad seem to be draining at a very fast rate.

The expected battery life for the Keypad is typically 12 months, based on arming and disarming the system 3 times a day and triggering an alarm once per month.

However if a substantial amount of programming/operation is performed using battery power, this will reduce the battery life.

It is advisable to use a micro USB adaptor to power the device during substantial programming, setup or operation. A typical 5V micro USB power adaptor such as a phone charger is compatible. Note: the connector is located inside the battery compartment.

What replacement batteries do I need for my system?
Keypad8 x 1.5V AA (LR6) Alkaline
Battery Siren4 x 1.5V D (LR20) Alkaline
Solar Siren1 x 6V 2100mAH NiMH
Door window contact detector1 x 3V CR2032 Lithium
PIR Movement Detector3 x 1.5V AAA (LR03) Alkaline
Remote Control1 x 3V CR2032 Lithium

For AA, AAA & D type batteries, it is recommended to use alkaline type batteries, because this type has a more stable voltage, and lasts longer than the lower cost zinc-carbon type. For an approximately 10% increase in battery life, you can also use Lithium batteries.
