ademco 20p second keypad

Ok I need some help. I bought a new keypad for my 20p a few months ago, I bought the 6160. I decided to hook up the old 6150 at the back door. I ran the wires fine but when I go to stick the installers code on the first keypad or the new installed one, I get nothing. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong. Once I disconnect the second one then I am able to get into programming with the original keypad.

You need to set the address to this second keypad as 17. Your first keypad would be addressed to 16.

Look in your installer manual for the procedure or browse these threads. I believe you have to power down, and when powering back up, hit the * & # at the same time to get into programming.

I think you need to go into field * 190 to set the address to 17 on second keypad.

If you have the installer code, on a Vista "P" series the go to program is [installer code] + 8 + 00.

To turn on the second keypad set the keypad address to 17 on the keypad itself, then, in programming, enter *190 1 0

Exit programming with *99
