Question about Ademco Home Security

1 Answer

I have 4 key fobs (CE2R-LX2), 2 that work (able to reprogram) and 2 that won't with a Ademco Vista 10SEa using a Code Encryptor. First does the key fobs need to be programmed in the alarm (via ADEMCO 6148 key pannel) or, how I understand it, are just programmed in via the Code Encryptor. Are CE2R-LX2 unique and only work on a specific channel ie do you have to only use the key fobs that come with the Code Encryptor

Learn the two into the Code Encryptor receiver by pressing and releasing the black button on the receiver. The red light on the receiver should come on. press and release the closed padlock button 3 times, the red light on the receiver should go off

SOURCE: How do I program zonig

The 6148 keypad is a fixed english keypad. It is possible to program your system from a fixed english keypad, but it is very difficult. an alpha keypad shows text descriptions of the programming fields. The model number is 6160. If you are doing your own programming, I would suggest replacing the 6148.

When programming, you're programming your alarm panel, not the keypad. The keypad is just an interface to the panel. If you have a tan box in your basement or a closet, that is your panel. There will be a sticker on the inside of the door of the panel that will tell you the model of the panel at the bottom. It will say Ademco Vista 10, 15, 15P, 20, or 20P.

From there you can go to the link below and find the installation and programming manual for your panel.

Hope this helps.

Key fob opens garage doors but wont trigger alarm

It should be possible it depends on what type of panel you have on how you would program it. If you open the metal box that houses the panel it should be listed somewhere. It might be on the door but beware some metal boxes have different panels in them sometimes. Look on the board itself for a white sticker that has numbers and or letters on it.

Key fobs tend to hold their code indefintely. The batteries in them are probably burnt. Open up one of the fobs and replace the battery (hearing aid type) then they should work fine. Good Luck!~
