Yep, Zones 1-6 are the hardwired zones and Zone 9 is the 1st wireless zone (bedroom window) courtesy of the 6150RF keypad receiver. Now you know which sensor is the problem!

Often, with keypads, a sticking or dead key is a dirty or defective key contact (ie contact at the back of the key and the circuit board). But that shouldn't affect the other keypads.

I guess the real question is, "what would cause all three keypads not to work"? Certainly not an individual keypad and not all three keypads simultaneously. It sounds like the problem resides...

If all of the wiring is good, you might just want to replace the panel with a Vista 20P ($60), replace the smoke ($40) and IR ($20) detectors with their modern equivalent.

I think you can find the beepers for under a dollar if they're the correct voltage:

With all three sensors going off at once, it sounds like something other than the sensors(?) Maybe RF interference from somewhere, or a bad wireless system component? Are these the only wireless...

I don't know what manufacturer your system is but if it has a main panel, try removing the transformer (power) to the main panel. That will stop the beeping until you can figure out what the problem...

What make and model heat pump do you have? Some will allow you to set the temperature at which the backup heatstrips kick in. I doesn't really matter if your heat pump runs almost continuously as...

Heat pumps are fine if you can avoid auxiliary backup heat utilization (usually resistance heat strips - the most expensive source of heating). The two things that cause auxiliary heat kicking in...

You could certainly do that - the 20P should be compatible with all of your hardwired sensors (although it may not be compatible with any wireless sensors you have from 2003). The 20P has some...

Sorry, I was getting my sensors mixed up. The 5800 mini is, indeed a stick-on. The 5800 micra is the recessed one. Luckily, they don't have a 5800 micro or a 5800 mega! ;)

The current proms (v10.23) are pretty cheap - $20-$30. I don't think you'll find a firmware file to flash.
