The Honeywell 6280 color graphic voice touchscreen keypad (comes in 6280S which is silver or 6280W which is white around the screen). This is Honeywell’s newest offering if you are looking to add a touchscreen keypad option to your Vista system.
This keypad has a graphical interface that matches the icons from the Honeywell Total Connect graphics, which makes it easier to understand if you get the total connect monitoring add-on later. It also has the voice annunciation for all system status conditions, that means if you don’t understand the icons it will speak to you. It will only speak in the English language.
This new Honeywell 6280 keypad not only displays what your alarm is doing, but it can be a digital picture frame or play videos as well. This makes it not only useful as a keypad but fun as well.
The keypad can accept many user codes, but can only store descriptions for ten users. This means that if you assign the first ten people codes; then you can put their names alongside the codes so that you never forget who has what code.
