Programming the 5800RP to an Alarm Panel

Programming the 5800RP to an Alarm Panel


Hi, DIYers. Joe from AlarmGrid here. And today, we’re going to talk
about had a how to add a 5,800 RP to a LYNX Touch panel. Now, a 5,800 RP doesn’t have
to be programmed in for it to work. As soon as you plug
it in, it’s going to start providing that
repeating function. And what that does is actually
repeat any 345 megahertz signal that it hears, so you get an
extended range on your sensors. If you do want to program it
into the panel, what that’ll do for you is that when a
trouble condition occurs on the 5800 RP, it’s going
to show up on your panel. Now, there’s two different
ways to program it in. You can have it occupy
one zone in programming. And if you do this, all
the trouble conditions will come in on that
one zone, or you can break it off and have four
different zones programmed for it, for all of its
trouble conditions. That’s the recommended
way to do it, because it’s going to give you
much more detailed information about what’s wrong
with the 5800 RP. If you do program that
in using one zone, all of the trouble conditions
will come under that one zone. And what you’re going
to see is that if there is a AC loss or an
RF jam, it’s still going to show up as a low
battery check-in on the system, but it won’t trigger an
alarm, just in case the system is armed when this occurs. Again, the recommended
way to do this, though, is to break them all off
in individual zones, which is what we’re going to
show you how to do today. Again, when we do
program it in, you’re going to see what it looks like
when we do program it in as one zone. And then we’re going to have
to do something on the 5800 RP to access the second
serial number on the unit to get the other zones in. But let’s take a
look at the 5800 RP, and let’s get in the zone
programming on our LYNX touch, and then we’ll
take it from there. So we have our 5800 RP open. And as you can see,
the serial number is printed right
here on the board. Now if you’re just going to
use the one zone for trouble reporting, all
you’re going to have to do is program in this
serial number to the system and name it appropriately. What you’re also going
to see us do later is we’re going to move
dip switch number two. If you’re just using
the one serial number, or if you’re programming it
in, or starting to program in all your trouble
zones, you’re going to want that dip
switch two to be off. So as you can see,
it is off right now. So let’s go over
to our LYNX touch and get into zone programming. So on the LYNX touch,
let’s go to Tools. Enter the Installer code,
4112, program, and then Zones. Let’s go down so we get a
whole new fresh set of zones. I’m going to click zone
number seven and click Edit. Now, like any other
sensor, to learn this, we’re going to click
on serial number, and now the system
is in learning mode. So heading back
over to a 5800 RP. I’m going to click
the Tamper switch, and then I’m going
to release it. I got one beep. I’m going to do it again. [BEEPING] I got two beeps, and you can see
the serial number has shown up on the system. I’m going to do it a third time. [BEEPING] And we get three beeps,
and it is learned in. Now if we were to just use this
one zone for all of our trouble reporting, this is
all the programming that we would have to do. And what we’re going
to do is set it to– we’re going to name it
first, so we know what it is. And we’re going to do low bat– ZZTV. Check in. 5800 RP. Done. It’s going to be
loop number one. Device type, we’re
going to set to Other. And then for the
response type, we’re going to set this to
24 hour auxiliary. Supervision is going
to be supervised. Alarm report. We’re probably going to want
that on, and we’re all set. So we click Save. And now, we have the
5800 RP programmed in to work on that one zone. So again, if we just
left it like this, if there was an AC
loss or an RF jam, those would show up with zone
number seven, with this info, but it wouldn’t set the system
off if it was armed into alarm. But we want to have more
detailed information when there is a trouble on our 5,800 RP. So what we’re going to do is
head back over to our 800 RP. We’re going to set dip
switch number two to On. What this does is it switches
it to the second serial number, which is the existing
serial number plus one. So it’s going to be 0750154 now. This is going to
give us those three additional zones to program in
the other trouble conditions. So back on our LYNX touch, we’re
going to select a new zone. Click Edit. Just like before, going to
click serial number to put the system into Learn mode. And then back on
our 5800 RP, we’re going to click the tamper
switch, just like before. So I’m going to click it. I go. Click it again. Let go. As you can see, that is the
serial number that we want. It’s the serial number that’s
on the board, plus one. I’m going to click it again. And let go. Now, as this is the first
zone of the new zones, or the second set of zones
for our trouble conditions, this is actually going to
work as our tamper trouble. So what I’m going to
do is enter Tamper. T. [BEEPING] 5800 RP. Device type, I’m going
to set this to Other. The response type, I’m
going to Day/ Night. What this is is troubled
by day and alarm by night. This means that if the
system is disarmed, it’s going to create a trouble. If the system is armed,
it will go into alarm. An important thing
that we do have to do is set the supervision
on this to unsupervised. In these three zones from
the second serial number, they’re all going to
be set to unsupervised, and it’s important that you
do set that as that, or else you’re going to get
some weird conditions, and it’s going to
be very frustrating. So now, I’m going
to click on Save to confirm our programming. And we’re to do the
next to trouble zones. So going to click on the
next open zone, click Edit. Click on serial number to
put it into a learn mode. And then back on our 5800 RP,
I’m gonna do the same thing. Click the tamper. Let it go. One beep. Click the tamper. Let it go. We’ve got two beeps. Click the tamper. Let it go. We got three beeps. So now, we’re working
with the second trouble zone of this set of zones
that I’m programming. We go to our LYNX Touch. What we’re going to
do is we’re going to set loop number to number 2. And this is actually going
to work as our AC loss zone. So I’m going to do AC. I’ll put it all in this loss. 5800 RP. Device type, we’re going
to set this to Other. The response type,
we’re actually going to do 24 hour auxiliary. And again, we’re going
to want to make sure that we set the supervision
to unsupervised. So now that we have that locked
in, we’re going to click Save, and then we’re going to program
in our last trouble zone. So I’m going to click
the Next open zone. Click on Edit. Serial number to load
up the Learn mode. And then again, on our 1500 RP,
I’m going to click the tamper. Let it go. Click the tamper again. Let it go. Click the Tamper one
more time, and let it go. Now we have our
third trouble zone of the second set program done. So our loop number
for this one is going to be a loop number three,
and then the zone description is going to be RF Jam. So FR Jam, 5800 RP. Again, our device type
is going to be Other. And then the response
type for this one, again, is going to
be 24 hour auxiliary. And again, we’re going to
want to set our supervision to unsupervised. Go ahead and click Save. And now, as you can see,
all the trouble conditions that could occur on the
5800 RP will show up as their own
individual zones, which will make it much
easier to troubleshoot if anything happens to it. Before you do back out
of programming, though, I do recommend that you clip
the cover back on the 5800 RP. Because that will give you an
immediate trouble if the tamper isn’t pushed in. All you have to do to do this
is hook it into the back plate, swing it down, and close it. Now in programming,
click the back arrow. Click the back arrow. You always want to say
yes to allow installer to re-enter programming. Click the back arrow. And we’re all set. We’re getting a system trouble
because of the low battery. But as you can see,
nothing on the 5800 RP is popping up, telling
us that we’re good to go. That’s how to add a 5800
to a LYNX Touch panel. If you have any questions

  1. Be sure to make/upload a video how to program a Qolsys z-wave plus siren 🚨.

    I discovered you have to manually create scenes for Honeywell Automation using rules and scenes especially on Honeywell 52xx/7000.

    When I programmed the siren into my panel it programmed it as a light switch.

    I got my scene set where it would turn on the Qolsys siren on any burg and fire alarm.

    Also, I got it set where it would turn off the Qolsys siren on 24 hr Aux zone type, 24 hour silent zone type, and when you disarm it.

    You have to separately set each rule and scene.
