Ademco 5828 keypad

Are there two kinds of 5828 keypads - one for battery operation and one for electrical ? Mine is currently working with 3 batteries but I don't like how it doesn't stay lighted and how we have to hold down the '*' key to wake the keypad up. Yet when I open the keypad up I don't see anywhere to attach an adapter.

Thanks and Hapy Holidays !

Just the one 5828 keypad using either transformer or batteries -- your choice. Transformer plugs in the back.


edit: Even plugged in, I do not believe it stays lighted but, you don't need to wake it up [like on batts].

Is this mounted on a wall?
There should be a jack for the power supply on the back, not under the battery cover but next to it, kind of in a slot facing downward and has a wire trace for the wire to fit flush with the wall going downward.

I can't find a picture of the back but the above link is the correct transformer.

There's a kit for that that provides the plug in power supply and optional deskmount. The plug in connects in the little divot to the left of the battery compartment.

Whether powered by battery or AC, these keypads still have a bit of a lag on "wake up".

You guys are great ! Yes the keypad hangs on the wall. I had been looking at the top surface of the circuit board but I now see on the back where the adapter attached.

I have a box of adapters I've held onto over the years. I have one in my hand which says : Class 2 power source. Input 120VAC 60HZ 5W. output 6VDC 300 mA.

Think I can use it with the 5828 keypad ? It connects fine to the pin on the back.

Answer to self - no.

The k0991 adapter is cheap enough at around $14-20 USD. It just hurts to pay as much as $35 to have it delivered to Mexico.

Thanks again.

It is a 5vdc trans, not 6vdc [not sure of amperage]. just check a Goodwill [or similar] store - make sure your polarity is correct. if reversed, just cut the wires and reverse them.
