DSC 5100 keypad zone labels

I updated all zone labels on a 5100 keypad, but just realized that they do not display on the other 5100 keypads. Do labels not get populated to other keypads when programmed?

Each keypad has to be programmed individually for the LCD display options. This includes zone labels, scrolling open zones, and light options (AC light, ect.)

The standard programming is global throughout the system

If you mean a PK5500 keypad, there is a command to broadcast the keypad programming to the other keypads in the system: *8 [installer code] * 998

Wow... MrRon, I only thought that was used to send the descriptors thru to the monitoring station. You may save me a lot of time in the future!
