The ADEMCO 5828 and 5828V are wireless, bidirectional,
fixed-word, keypads that may be used in conjunction with
LYNX and VISTA series residential control panels. VISTA
systems require use of either a 5883 Transceiver (micro P/N
WAK5119-X, where X = 3 or higher), 6150RF Keypad/
Transceiver (PC board P/N SA6150RFAS-T3 or higher), or
6160RF Keypad/Transceiver. The 5828/5828V keypads are
not compatible with commercial control panels that have
three-digit zone numbers (e.g., VISTA128BP).
Both keypads provide:
Four programmable special function keys
Wall-mount plate for easy removal of the keypad and
Optional Desktop mount /AC adapter kit, ADEMCO
Battery-powered with 3-AA batteries
The 5828V keypad additionally provides:
Voice Response – system status, zone information, and
alarms with zone information
Stored Message LED indication
Built-in microphone and speaker
The 5828/5828V cannot be used as the primary system
keypad, and may not be used to program or test any
security system. All systems require a hardwired
keypad (or Compass Downloader) to do so. Once
programmed, the 5828/5828V can be used to initiate all
common functions of a fixed English keypad.

If AC power is lost, the keypad will revert to battery-powered
operation until AC power is restored and a new status
request is made ([✱] key).
NOTE: Whether the unit is powered by battery or AC, the
5828/5828V may take up to 5 seconds to display and/or
annunciate the new status after pressing the [✱] key.
Before mounting the 5828 & 5828V permanently,
determine a good RF location as follows:
