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.

I have worked with one of these and I have to say they are very nice looking as well as easy to work with. This would be a very good addition for anyone that is looking to have touch screen capability on your Vista system.
The new Honeywell Lynx Touch L5100 is the upgrade to Honeywell’s Lynx Touch L5000 panel and it’s what a lot of people having been waiting for!
The newest upgrade in the Lynx family will let anyone use the absolute latest in security, home automation, and monitoring options.
The display on the L5100 has been upgraded to resemble the display of the Tuxedo keypad. It will display, upon connection to Total Connect, the weather in your local area.
The first feature that the new L5100 will let you have is the ability to add a full Z-Wave controller just like the one that is already built into Honeywell’s TUXEDO keypad by adding the L5100-ZWAVE Z-Wave® Control Communication Module. The L5100-ZWAVE will allow the L5100 to control the following:
- Up to three thermostats
- Four door locks
- 40 devices (lights, switches and lamp modules)
- 20 scenes
- 20 rules (event based actions)
- 20 schedules (time based actions)
One really cool function of the Z-Wave device is that if you have a Z-Wave lock; you can set the panel up to disarm when a user code is typed into the lock’s keypad. The L5100 will let you have the home automation features that you’ve been wanting with a great security system running behind it to protect your home and belongings.
Another one of the newest features of the upgraded Lynx Touch is the ability for the panel to communicate to a central station monitoring service over the 4G network. With the GSMVLP5-4G the panel can send signal over the world’s fastest wireless network so that your alarm condition get noticed quickly.
They are also have an Android device, the MID-7H, that will allow you to connect to the panel to check system status and control it. This all comes with Honeywell’s Total connect service. Unlike the functionality of some self-monitoring remote control and access you got if you bought their TUXEDO keypad; the L5100 is totally reliant on Total Connect for any remote control and access.
This is a very nice upgrade that Honeywell has made to the Lynx series and it’s just another way Honeywell is staying a step ahead of the pack in the alarm industry.
The Honeywell Tuxedo 6280i Talking Touch Screen Keypad is just another great product from Honeywell Security. The future of security begins here inside the TUXEDO!!
The TUXEDO touch screen keypad can not only control your Vista series alarm system, but it can do a number of other cool things. The screen features a 16 million color display and has graphic icons that will let you integrate with Honeywell’s Total Connect monitoring service. You can also leave messages for family and friends via the built-in microphone, load video and pictures for slideshows.
The keypad has a built in Z-Wave controller that you can use to control any of Z-Wave’s full line of home automation products. You can control anything from door locks, lighting, blinds, etc. That way you can, if you have IP cameras and a Z-Wave door lock, look at your TUXEDO and see who’s at the front door and unlock it for them right at your keypad!
As I mentioned in the above paragraph you can also use the Honeywell TUXEDO touch screen keypad to view up to 16 IP cameras that are connected on the same network as the TUXEDO. You can do single view or view four at a time. You don’t have to use just Honeywell IP cameras either. The 6280i will let you view some IP cameras on your network. You can find a list of compatible IP cameras HERE.
The keypad has an ethernet port on the back that you plug a LAN cable into and connect to your router. You can pull the local IP address of the TUXEDO up in any browser on any computer in the local network. Not only can you view the system on your local network, but with knowledge of port-forwarding you can also remotely view your keypad from another location besides your home.
I love this keypad and would recommend it to anyone wanting to take their Honeywell alarm system to the next level.
