About the ADEMCO 6150RF
The ADEMCO 6150RF Keypad/Transceiver is a combination unit that contains:
An ADEMCO 6150 Fixed Addressable
An ADEMCO 5881M RF Receiver
The ADEMCO 6150RF Keypad/Transceiver may be used on any ADEMCO control panel that supports the
ADEMCO 6150 Keypad.
Features of the 6150RF
Supports up to 8 wireless keys locally (programmed directly into 6150RF) without occupying any zones
supported by the control panel.
Supports button-type transmitters (ADEMCO 5804, ADEMCO 5804BD) for local operation.
Supports a maximum of 16 transmitters programmed into any ADEMCO 5800 Series-supported control
Provides low-battery indications for the local wireless keys.
Supports wireless keys with Signal Sentry (high-security) (ADEMCO 5804E).
Provides a nominal range of 200' for the RF transmitters (some transmitters have a shorter range).
Supports RF jam detection when the receiver is enabled.
Provides wireless key support for control panels that do not support RF themselves (such as ADEMCO
The following ADEMCO 5800 series transmitters are not intended for use in UL installations: 5802, 5802MN,

Provides an Auto Enroll mode for programming of the wireless keys.
Provides a method for deleting a serial number and re-enrolling a new one in its place.
Provides default settings for the functions of the wireless keys.
Can send status signals (Armed, Ready, etc.) to bi-directional units such as ADEMCO 5804BD, ADEMCO
5804BDV and ADEMCO 5827BD.
Can operate the on-board relay in conjunction with the receiver (e.g., to trip a garage door opener).
Note: This particular feature is not intended for UL installations.
Can activate relays programmed into the control panel.
Provides an End User mode to enable/disable local wireless keys (e.g., if a user accidentally loses a wireless
key). See the ADEMCO 6150RF User Guide for this procedure.
Use the following guidelines when planning an installation:
Local wireless keys are programmed directly into the 6150RF and may be used regardless of whether the
RF receiver is enabled or disabled.
If using bi-directional devices, be sure to enable the transmitter module in the 6150RF.
If transmitters are programmed into the control panel, be sure to enable the receiver. (Make sure you do not
exceed the number of receivers supported by the control panel.)
If a local wireless key is programmed to arm/disarm or to trigger a relay on the control panel, a user code
must be entered into the 6150RF. This user code must also be programmed into the control panel.
You must set the House ID only if you are using RF keypads and/or bi-directional devices; AND the House
ID Source is the 6150RF (Local).
