The 6160 deluxe alarm keypad is easy to install and simple to use. The attractive white console blends with any decor and features a contoured, removable door that conceals illuminated soft-touch keys. The 6160 alarm keypad also features a new larger and brighter 32-character display with easy-to-read plan-English status messages. The oversized function keys are easily accessed even when the keypad door is closed, and can be programmed for fire, burglary, personal emergencies and other operations. Colored self-adhesive labels are included. This keypad does allow you to program a security system as it has an alpha display.
